Cafes and restaurants
Being a popular tourist resort, Dubai fused together cuisines from every corner of the world. You can go to an Italian or French restaurant, try Japanese sushi or Peking Duck, or grab a bite at an American fast food restaurant.
However when most people come to Dubai, they want to experience the flavor of the traditional Eastern cuisine.
Numerous diners, cafes, and restaurants are strewn over the districts of this fabulous city and offer flavorful savory traditional Eastern cuisine. You can eat over at a mall or go to a quiet restaurant out of the way of noisy tourist locations. Dubai imposes a strict control over the food quality so you can safely eat at any place with no fear of food poisoning.
It’s worth noting that the modern Arabic cuisine inherited many of its food staples from the nomadic ancestors. Hot spices and a wide variety of meat dishes perpetuate this legacy.
Here you can experience Arabic cuisine in its broadest sense—Iranian, Lebanese, Syrian dishes make up the traditional cuisine of the UAE. If you are going on to see the desert, you will be offered traditional Bedouin food, which is cooked over an open fire.
