Indulge in popular Middle Eastern flavors on this journey by foot around old Dubai, starting in the Bastakiya Old Quarter. Visit the region’s only Coffee Museum to learn about regional and global coffee history and a cup of Gahwa to kickstart your tour. Stop at a traditional Café, in cool and relaxed contrast to its busy street setting for a Lebanese breakfast favorite, Cheese or Zaatar Manakeesh. Stroll past Al Fahidi Fort into the bustling Souk Al Kabeer where a brisk trade in garments and spices is afoot. Enjoy a delightfully refreshing Lemon-Mint juice then discover a Creek-side hidden gem where you dig into a shared platter of Arabic Mezzeh whilst watching Abra boats crisscross Dubai Creek. This traditional craft brings you to Deira where a stroll to a popular creek-side restaurant is rewarded with a Shawarma or Falafil, the most ubiquitous of Arab street foods. No Middle Eastern journey is complete without exploring
Emirati cuisine. Your final stop at an Emirati restaurant seduces with subtle Oriental flavors, where the delicate fragrances stay with you long after the meal.
