In order to spread understanding among people about breast cancer, This month, Dubai’s eateries are turning the colours of all the food items into pink.

The primary cause behind turning the food items pink is to spread awareness and encourage people to get checked and scanned to prevent breast cancer.


Various restaurants in Dubai are coming forward to serve pink food items throughout the month; one of the restaurants in the drive is the Mumbai-style street food joint Yummy Dosa. The eatery has been serving its new ‘Pink Dosa’ for Dh28.

The customers will also be able to find the pink menu after scanning the QR code on the flyer. This leads to an information page about early diagnosis and preventive measures for breast cancer.

The famous Indian restaurant in Dubai Mumbai-style street food joint Yummy Dosa uses beetroot to pink colour.

House of Pops is another food outlet that is donating to the cause. The eatery is helping raise funds for breast cancer awareness throughout October by launching a limited-edition guava flavour pink ice pop.

The fresh frozen treat is available in a special box of five pops for Dh85. All the proceeds from online sales will go to Al Jalila Foundation. This drives an annual Pinktober campaign to raise funds for local breast cancer research projects.
