Japanese gluten-free cafe Kobeya opens in the UAE

The first Japanese and Far Eastern gluten free cafe Kobeya has opened its doors at the Wasl Vita Mall, Dubai. 

The cafe concept is inspired by the founder’s difficulties in finding gluten-free options in restaurants for her gluten-intolerant son. 

“Kobeya is my inspiration to create that option in the UAE. Our focus is on promoting healthy-eating habits by serving only an all ingredient gluten-free menu with more than 50 vegetarian, vegan, non-vegetarian and lactose-free varieties that include salads, burgers, healthy meals and desserts,” said Leiko H, founding member of Kobeya. 

The Kobeya menu features a selection of gluten-free food including exclusive Japanese Kobe beef burger and Vietnamese spring rolls. The cafe also offers cooking classes on creating gluten-free lunch boxes for kids with products from Japan, Thailand, the Far East and Europe. 


Leiko said: “My experiences in many Asian countries have given me the vision to offer unique gluten-free dishes created by an expert team of nutritionists at Kobeya. We get to know our suppliers by visiting farms and talking with farmers. We show our dedication to our customers by choosing carefully only high quality five-star products and ingredients”.
