If you’re a Shawarma lover, you’ll be the happiest in Dubai. Shawarma is one of the most authentic Emirati dishes I Dubai. You will get different variety of Shawarma with a wide option in meat and sauces. Automatic and Jedoudna are the two best Lebanese joints in the city serving most delicious Shawarma. You can also try it from Beirut, Al Mallah and Shawarmanji.



Comfort food at its most rib-sticking, justice is done to Egyptian favourite at Al Ammor. The vegetarian version of the baked noodle, chickpea and lentil dish comes with a tray of condiments to customize to your liking – a dab of chilli, a drizzle of nostril-twitching vinegar and a handful of deep-fried crispy onions hits the spot.

Hamour and Sheri fry at Bu Qtair are must tries.  This is perhaps the only restaurant in Dubai that hasn’t changed over the years despite its soaring popularity and its enormous media publicity in recent times. The charm of Bu Qtair lies in the contradiction in its location – the sudden discovery of a modest porta cabin selling fried fresh fish on the beach, with the 7-star hotel Burj Al Arab acting as the unusual backdrop.
