Dubai’s Special Juice

You will find a burger shop in every corner of the U.A.E., specially so in Dubai. And each of these burger shops proudly offers a variety of their special juices. You see, a regular juice means only one type of fruit is used: like mango juice, pineapple juice, or orange juice. But if a juice is extracted out of more than one type of fruit, then it becomes a special juice.

You can find this “Special Juice” list in almost ALL of burger shops:


Confused? I know. After all, the juice is named Computer!  Allow me to provide visuals to accompany the fancy names:


Mazboot (strong).  Why the other one is classified as “juice” is beyond me.



No idea what “SFC” stands for.



Dil Se (from the heart), and Thabakath (?)






And then you realize that a special juice isn’t even juice.  It’s more of a fruit-flavored milk shake with nuts, jelly, and ice cream on top.

But it doesn’t cost much.  And more importantly, the taste is really good.

    i’ll shoot myself before i get caught eating at one of these places …

    There are a couple that have a good reputation and turnover is so high, chances for food to going bad are less. Places like Jabal Al Noor or Al Muntakhab. But to stop and eat at the fisrt cafeteria you spot is simply asking to get minor-case of dysenteries

  9. nadia says:

    Moryarti, that’s an exaggeration 🙂

    There are hundreds of eateries like these, and it’s a matter of personal choice and some common sense when you look for a place to eat/drink.

    Besides, a normal immune system is enough to combat minor cases of dysentery, which by the way, can be acquired just as easily with home-cooked meals.

    wow.. maybe it’s just me but the pics make me want NOT to try them at all… just plain old mango juice for me please.

    nice post with pics.

    so do you currently live in Dubai?

  11. nadia says:

    I particularly like the mango and avocado combination. You must definitely try some of those ‘juicy’ combinations yourself. It’s really not that bad 🙂

    Yes, currently living in (and immensely enjoying) the desert 🙂

    Most of these cafeterias also have the ‘custom-made’ option. My brother once got so exasperated with the weird names that he thought of giving these a try. They said, “Any fruit combination you tell us & we’ll make it!” So without thinking much he said, “OK, make it mango & melon.”
    Well, they served as they promised…”custom-made”. But boy was that strange combo a confusing thing to swallow!

  13. nadia says:

    lol…a lesson learned 🙂

    Actually, if you have the patience to ask, the waiter would usually tell you what a particular combo is made of.
