First floating drive-through debuts in Dubai

Aqua Pod, the world’s first floating drive-through fast food joint has just opened in Dubai. Now sea-goers can satisfy their hunger while at sea by pulling up next to a floating restaurant to enjoy food and beverages as they would from a traditional food truck.

The Aqua Pod boasts a revolutionary architectural design with pioneering sustainability features, matching the UAE government’s focus on green initiatives. These enable the Aqua Pod to act as a waste collector wherever it is located, eliminating the discharge of brine into the sea. Largely running on electrical power, the Aqua Pod’s operations enable the production of clean water from the sea excluding any negative discharge, allowing this creation to exist without environmental harm.

The first Aqua Pod, appropriately named “Salt Bay”, serves up a creative burgers menu, set to rival the city’s juiciest joints. Salt Bay, a unique concept created in collaboration with successful F&B entrepreneur Koussei Kurbaj, is the first of many creations that Aqua Pod developers look to float across the UAE, bringing the country’s most creative creations to consumers at sea.
