By popping up with their famous food truck at festivals and fairs since 2017, home-grown Maiz has already garnered a loyal following of foodies that’ll now be able to get their full fill of the Mexican fare they’ve become known for at the restaurant’s new permanent JLT haunt.
Decked out in pretty pastel colours with minimal white furniture, these Insta-friendly interiors are a social media maven’s dream. The focus in this cosy neighbourhood spot however, is on the open kitchen that dishes out husband-wife duo Luma Makhlouf and Haider Al Assam’s freshly-made burritos, quesadillas, wholesome rice bowls, crispy flautas — and of course, their signature tacos.
If seafood is more your taste, he menu offers grilled shrimp or battered fish with chipotle mayo. You’ll want to try them all whilst your sweet tooth will be satiated by the churro ice-cream sandwich on the small but tightly curated menu that’s a great addition to the area’s restaurant scene.
