For Emirati – Arabian Tea House
If you’re looking for a taste and feel of authentic Dubai, then explore the narrow streets of the Al Fahidi historical neighbourhood
. The buildings here are some of the oldest in the Emirate and have been restored along with their impressive barajeel (air towers). After looking around the boutique art galleries and local craft shops, take shelter from the sun and heat at the Arabian Tea house. Ask for a seat at one of the curtained tables and dine on classic Arabic mezze dishes including hummus, tabbouleh, moutabal, and falafel along with freshly made flatbreads – take a glance in the tiny bakery kitchen to see them being made, all housed in the prettiest of courtyards.
