Dubai gives you a proper taste of the Middle East with its so called Emirati cuisine. Dubai’s traditional food is meat (not pork for religious reasons), dairy and grain, normally due to the weather, yet vegetables are still easily grown in certain areas. The cuisine offers dishes from all over the world to create delicious flavours of food. The meat side of Dubai offers many meat dishes as the popular one ‘Shawarma’, which is spicy meat served in a wrap, which is a must try in Dubai. Another unique dish is camel which can be used as one of their many ingredients, served on its own or stuffed with herbs and spices. A perfect snack in Dubai would be falafel’s, which is deep-fried balls made out of chickpeas which is a delight to eat. A popular dessert is luqaimat, which are dumplings made out of butter, milk, sugar, flour, saffron and cardamom, presenting a lush dessert. Now one of the most popular holiday destinations with the UK traveller, Dubai caters exceptionally well for our own tastes.
