About our dishes


Our menu is an encyclopedia of international flavours, filled with calorie controlled dishes, inspired by our multicultural hometown of Dubai. Our mission is, and always has been simple: to make the world a better place through wholesome, tasty food and outstanding service.

We get whole vegetables, whole fruits and whole grains delivered to our kitchen every day. Our team dices, slices, spices and roasts in-house because food tastes better when it’s made fresh.

With recipes conceptualised by our expert nutrition team and cooked up by talented chefs using only the freshest ingredients in our HACCAP and ISO 22000 certified kitchen we strive to deliver high-quality meals 365 days a year.

How it all started

Founded in 2010, Kcal is the brainchild of Mark Carroll and Andreas L Borgmann, two passionate and ambitious entrepreneurs. Kcal is on a mission to prove that “healthy” means more than a calorie count. It means being an active and positive member of the community by helping it make better decisions that fulfill inside and out. At Kcal what we help you achieve on the inside shows on the outside.

Today, Kcal is on its way to owning the exclusive label of five-star meal providers at takeaway prices, making the world a better place through this bold and unique concept.

Operating out of its Dubai headquarters, and freshly from being bestowed the People's Choice Award at the SME Stars of Business Awards, SME of the year and franchise of the year. Kcal has pursued a dynamic outlet growth policy that has seen it open 8 restaurants within the UAE to date, with soon to follow expansion into Kuwait and Qatar.

Supporting Kcal are its other household brands - Kcal Meal Plans, the company's bespoke healthy meal plan provider, currently serves thousands of meals per week to its subscribers and is on a similar fast growth track. Fuel-UP by Kcal – The UAE’s first meal prep company targeted towards athletes and bodybuilders. Gourmet By Kcal – A luxury healthy eating restaurant and Kcal’s retail product line Kcal GO can be found in several retailers and cinemas across the UAE.

Long-term expansion plans have already been set in motion and will involve franchising the brand beyond the Middle East.
