As a general note for Al Ain: as with other places in the UAE, there is a large Indian expat community and so lots and lots of Indian restaurants / eateries, most (if not all) of which are at least veggie friendly.

Dubai Mughal is on the very corner of Al Ain Mall, and the other 2 restaurants are within walking distance of it. Plenty of parking available for all 3, and buses 960, 970 & 990 run past.

For snacks on the go, at the Volcano Pastry & Cafeteria (Arabic food) in the food hall of Jimi Mall you can get tasty falafel ‘sandwiches’ for 5 AED, or veggie samosas at the Indian counter adjacent.

Worth mentioning also that a lot of food shops & supermarkets stock soya milk as well as other veggie staples, but soya yoghurt is a little harder to come by (try Lulu or Spinney’s).
