Following the outstanding success of the first ‘Last Exit’, Meraas opens second concept as part of a number of new openings scheduled for 2017
Dubai – UAE; 23 January, 2016: Meraas, the Dubai-based holding company, has opened its second ‘Last Exit’ destination at Al Qudra. This new location is part of the brand’s overall expansion plan that will result in a total of 10 ‘Last Exit’ concepts throughout Dubai.
Last Exit Al Qudra is the perfect pit stop for visitors to the lakes, sporty types heading back from a day at the cycle track and local communities looking to enjoy delicious food in a unique environment. As with the original location on Sheikh Zayed Road, this new destination houses a number of gourmet food truck concepts and features a unique design aesthetic.
As a drive through and dine in destination, Last Exit Al Qudra has over 100 parking spaces and outdoor seating for up to 150 people. Like the original location, Last Exit Al Qudra has been innovatively themed, but this time visitors to the food truck park will find themselves transported to a horse stable setting complete with horse carriages, saddles and barrels. Hay bales have been innovatively converted to form comfortable and practical furniture, allowing diners take a well-deserved break whilst enjoying their gourmet street-food style dishes. Attended washrooms are also available for visitor comfort and convenience.
The food trucks at Last Exit Al Qudra have also been inventively designed to resemble horse trailers, in keeping with the destination’s atmospheric stable theming. Other aspects of the theming include intricate design details such as displays of horse shoes and riding tackle, further adding to the rustic stable atmosphere of the location.
A variety of cuisines are already available at the new location, with more food trucks due to arrive in the coming weeks. Choices include:
The Brass – Coffee & Community is a food truck with a home-grown concept from and for the Dubai community. This is a food truck that reflects Dubai itself – fresh and light, with mixed influences, contemporary and eclectic with heritage elements. The menu seamlessly melds what is part of our daily life – the integration of eastern and western lifestyles.
Burger Pit is a quintessentially classic American Airstream brought into the modern world. Drawing inspiration from the retro 1950’s diners, it combines old fashioned values with Dubai’s ever-growing demand for good food. The first brand of its kind in Dubai, Burger Pit appeals to every demographic with its quality ingredients, accessibility and superior flavour. The ultimate convenience food.
The Green House
Perfect for Last Exit’s most health-conscious diners, this food truck serves a wide variety of fresh and tasty salads.
Offering a delicious selection of parathas, accompanied by karak tea, Jaldi Jaldi is the perfect place for a quick bite!
Poco Loco Food Truck offers a mix of sophisticated and fun Latin American inspired dishes and drinks. The menu celebrates the best of Latin American soul-food to delight diners of all ages. Latin American inspiration also reveals itself through the Aztec and Incan designs throughout the truck décor – bold prints and vibrant colours dominate this lively concept, ensuring it is always where the fiesta is at!
‘Last Exit’ is a unique concept of gourmet food trucks that allows visitors to enjoy delicious specialties inspired by popular cafés and flavours from all over the world, including Latin America, the Middle East, the USA and Italy. The original location opened in July 2016.
In September, Meraas announced that it will be expanding the Last Exit concept to result in a total of 10 unique food truck concepts on roads leading in and out of the emirate. Each location will offer an array of services aimed to facilitate the mobility of families, children and businessmen on the roads, whilst also attracting international visitors and promoting local tourism between the emirates.
Following in the footsteps of the newly-opened Al Qudra location, two more exciting Last Exits are due to open in the coming months. Each and every upcoming destination will have its own unique theming, boasting an individual identity and charm. Locations for the new parks have already been identified and include an additional park on Sheikh Zayed Road, across from the first project, two on Al Ain Road, one in Hatta, one in Al Khawaneej, one on Mohammed Bin Zayed Road and two on Emirates Road.
