At the risk of sounding like a nanna, what will they think of next? The answer, of course, is anything, and everything. The sky really is the limit in Dubai, as evidenced by the hackneyed old cliches that get trotted out whenever people list the achievements of the city of superlatives. But this time, we really might have outdone ourselves with the advent of Salt Bay (see what they did there?) - a floating drive-thru food truck for yachts.
As well as dispatching chicken and beef burgers, fries, hotdogs, crepes, waffles, drinks and the like from jet-skis to various hungry revellers on yachts peppered around the Dubai Lagoon, Kite Beach, the Palm Villas and the World Islands, the team can also furnish you with a Salt Bay flag which you wave to gain attention. In a burger emergency, we imagine. Open from noon to 9pm daily, you can track down Salt Bay via its Instagram account.
As if all that wasn't impressive enough, perhaps our favourite fact about the floating kitchen is that the pod runs on a combination of electricity and diesel, utilising an in-built system that collects rubbish found in the sea and disposing of it when it's back onshore. Environmentalism and burgers. What more could you want?
