10. Maiz Tacos, coming soon to JLT

A homegrown food truck has evolved and expanded into a stand-alone restaurant and they’ve got a new location coming to JLT. NOT ONLY is this resto is packed with character, and a super-friendly team who have a story to share, the best part about Maiz Tacos? They do hella good guac.


9. La Carnita, Dubai Marina

A party spot? Yup. Great guac? Double yup. At La Carnita you can tuck into seriously good guac, and the chips on the side? SUPER crispy.

In the words of La Carnita, ‘don’t let anyone treat you like free salsa. You are guac, baby girl, guac’ Love this.


8. Muchachas Mexican Cantina, Holiday Inn Express

Seek out the guac at this lively Mexican cantina and you’ll be in good hands. It comes with Pico de gallo, jalapeño, lime, coriander, tortilla chips… and expect nothing but the best from a restaurant that comes from the capable Bull & Roo hands – the team behind Tom & Serg, The Sum of Us and more of Dubai foodies’ favourite haunts.


7. Maya Mexican Kitchen, Le Royal Méridien Beach Resort & Spa

Bow down to heroes that make some of the best guac in town. Enjoy the superstar dish in this colourful, contemporary beachside resto.


6. Loca, Dubai and Abu Dhabi

You’ll go loco for the guac at Loca (went there, sorry-not-sorry). Fresh guac that’s a lesson in how simple guac can taste so, sooooo, good.


5. Zoco, Al Habtoor City

Pop on your sombrero and dive right in! The chips and guac here are a little piece of plate-paradise. This is a lively resto (particularly on ladies night) so have your guac as a side with drinks or as a starter to you main.


4. Chalcos Mexican Grill, JLT, Business Bay and Motor City

This JLT spot is your number-uno for a little pot of tasty guac. It’s inexpensive and holy-guacamole (I promised myself I would only go there one time) it’s DE-LISH!


3. Maria Bonita, Al Wasl

Looking for authentic Mex? Look no further than this charming, little known gem on Al Wasl road.

The best part? The guac is made at your table and packs a serious flavour punch.


2. Tortuga, Mina A’ Salam

If you’ve ever dreamt of MOUNTAINS of fresh guac, get yourself to Tortuga Friday brunch and thank us later. Hella fresh, and hella tasty, need we say more?



1. Claw, Souk Al Bahar

First in class for guac in Dubai. Prepped in front of you with all the extras that take this guac to another level.

This looks the business and tastes FRESH.

Ask many people in Dubai and they’ll tell you the same thing. Claw Souk Al Bahar make a GREAT guac. Bow down!
