We will have a small detour through the Spice Souk where you can smell the beautiful aromas of different spices. You will get to know about the different spices used in UAE, their origin as you enjoy a hot Arabian Tea with some dates.


We would then move to our next stop as we take the Abra with stunning views of the Dubai Creek. We will be on the other side of the city where we will walk into the textile souk for our next stop.

For starters we will visit a restaurant located in a historic building with views of the creek. We will enjoy starters like Stuffed Vine Leaves, Moutabel (a delicious dip made from eggplant), a classic Middle Eastern salad known as Taboulleh, Kibbeh, Cheese & Spinach Sambousek, and some classic Falafel and Hummus!

Main Course

We will now walk through the Textile Souk. Our guide will tell you more about the souks, the culture and you can also stop at a local shop. 

At a charming local restaurant we will feast on delicious Machboos Deyay, Saloona, kebabs and some crunchy Luqaimat, a favorite dessert here in the Middle East.


Finally, we will have dessert surprises made with local ingredients and using old family recipes.
