Dubai’s food truck scene expands with third Last Exit at Al Khawaneej

Last Exit D89 is an experience for those at home in the great outdoors, with spacious lawns vintage pick-ups; farm animals, bird houses, and dishes created by 10 popular concepts


Last Exit, the unique food truck concept by Meraas, has announced the opening of a third location at Al Khawaneej, next to Mirdiff between Mohammed Bin Zayed Road and Emirates Road, as part of an ambitious expansion plan announced in September 2016 that will see a total of 10 new Last Exit destinations created across the emirate of Dubai by 2018.

Last Exit D89, as the destination will be known, is an experience for those at home in the great outdoors, with spacious lawns vintage pick-ups; farm animals, bird houses, and wholesome dishes created by the likes of homegrown Indian street food concept, Jaldi Jaldi, fried chicken house Hot Chix, and deliciously authentic Latin American cuisine at Poco Loco. The suburban hideaway is also designed to reflect the rich agricultural heritage of the surrounding community in Al Khawaneej, resulting in the ideal meeting place for a coffee in a quiet and unassuming corner of Dubai.

Meraas is committed to creating open places and new experiences that celebrate the diversity of life in Dubai, and which help stimulate a unique urban culture where people can connect and share ideas.

While Last Exit D89 will differ in style from the auto-themed Last Exit E11 on Sheikh Zayed Road, and the equestrian-themed Last Exit D63 in Al Qudra, the new food truck park in Al Khawaneej will offer the same gourmet street food that has become a firm favourite among residents and visitors, around the clock. It will also provide an array of services, whilst attracting international visitors and promoting local tourism between the emirates.

In addition to food trucks and services, the destination will double up as a venue for community events, with a range of facilities aimed at encouraging deeper engagement, to be added in the coming months. There are also plans to add a homestead, a bakery, and indoor restaurants that will create a new centre for residents in the surrounding community.

Meraas plans to create a further seven Last Exit destinations throughout Dubai before over the next two years, each with its own identity and unique characteristics inspired by local neighborhoods.
