A quintessential road side juice shop, Haji Ali Juice Center offers a variety of juices, milkshakes and fruit salads, along with a list of 100% vegetarian sandwiches, pizzas and more. Located at the corner between Al Nisr cinema and the famous Lamcy Plaza, it provides an easy way to grab a quick savory snack or a refreshing fruit juice at all the odd times when one feels hungry.
Hailing from a lively neighborhood known as Haji Ali Circle in Mumbai, India in the year 1937, the shop took its name from the famous Shrine of ‘Haji Ali’ visited by devotees and tourists alike. The Dubai shop carries the same touch and is reminiscent of the Mumbai branch.
The specialty of the juice center is definitely the ‘Cream Sharifa’, a blend of sweet whipped fresh cream with chunks of Sharifa fruit also known as custard apple or the Bullock’s heart fruit. Another interesting sweet treat is the ‘Falooda’ (a typical Indian sweet dish prepared with ice-cream, mixed with loads of fruits, nuts and noodles and topped with traditional rose scented sweet syrup).
Other assortments from the menu boast a spicy mix of grilled sandwiches, rolls and pizzas, greatly filling for the tummy and pretty light on the pocket. An average snack along with a thick milk shake will cost you around AED 25 to 30 – a real bargain!
