It was 7:30 pm and yet the sun was still up. We drove to watch a movie in the nearby Deira City Center and after lots of rounds looking for a parking space, we gave up and decided to just eat out somewhere which is not inside a mall. Friday, being a weekend in UAE means lots of people are out specially in the malls and since summer here can get up to 55+ degrees high, most people go out only when the sun is to set.
Located at the Jumeirah Beach Residence, the walk (JBR) strips of restaurants, i was almost put off as we had to take a very unlikely way up, (like a service elevator?) to the second floor of Amwaj. The place was very small, then I found out that it was more of a take out resto.
SOY serves chinese, mongolian and thai cuisine. The serving was good for two. Like in most chinese restos, it serves you crackers while waiting for your order. Average price for an ala carte is 50 aed.
