Your favorite neighborhood eatery on Golden Mile, Palm Jumeirah

Elli Kriel is Dubai’s original Kosher caterer. Since starting her first business, Elli’s Kosher Kitchen, from her home, Elli has been operating across the UAE since 2019. An opportunity to provide Kosher visitors and residents of the area with delicious, home-cooked meals, demand for Elli’s Kosher Kitchen skyrocketed after the signing of the historic Abraham Accords between Israel and the UAE in September 2020.

Born and proudly raised in South Africa by Greek parents, Elli is a Sociologist and self-confessed foodie. Having lived around the world, her travels and experiences with different cultures and traditions have inspired her unique way of cooking — fusing traditional Kosher dishes with global ingredients that honour heritage while embracing modernity to create delicious, innovative takes on classic meals.

With the opening of Elli’s Cafe and Bakery on Palm Jumierah, Elli hopes to introduce Kosher cuisine to Dubai’s residents and visitors alike, whether they already follow a Kosher diet or are simply looking to try something new. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Elli’s delicious menu offers a selection of incredible dishes, all developed by Elli and tried and tested by her family and friends, from an OU (Orthodox Union) certified kitchen. The cafe’s beautiful space also allows guests a moment to relax, rejuvenate and revive themselves with home-cooked food and tasty drinks.
