Residents are fed up with paying for water in restaurants, with some having to fork out AED60 for a bottle of imported water. It looks like their voices are being heard! There's a growing number of F&B outlets that have started offering free filtered tap water.
Here are some of them:
Mandana Shabani from Brambles Dubai says "There are, of course, the environmental implications of only having the option of bottled water on any menu. But there’s also the hospitality perspective of welcoming someone into your home with a glass of water, and that’s the same feeling we want to evoke at Brambles. It’s one of the most simple and genuine welcome gestures one can extend to guests."
Tom Urquhart and the Agenda team have been investigating the issue. He spoke to Kaffe Bloom owner Chang Supchin about why he serves customers free filtered tap water.
