Dubai Private Food Tour Including 10 Tastings

    What to Expect
    Book your preferred start time and meet your guide in Dubai’s Deira district for your 3-hour tour. Learn about Dubai’s multicultural culinary repertoire as you set out, and enjoy eight stops to sample local specialities.

    Sample some fresh dates, enjoying their sweetness as you learn how to find your perfect variety, and visit a restaurant to try the Middle Eastern favorites of tabbouleh (bulgur wheat salad) and mutabel (eggplant dip) on kubhz (Arabian bread).

    Next, explore the aromatic Spice Souk. Haggle for herbs and spices (own expense), and nibble on an unusual delicacy — dates coated in camel milk chocolate.

    After tasting saffron ice cream, ride an abra boat across Dubai Creek to the Al-Fahidi quarter. Dig into a lean and tasty camel burger, called ‘hump burgers’ by locals, and settle on the outdoor deck of a heritage restaurant to enjoy refreshing lemon mint juice and stuffed vine leaves with stellar city views.

    Lastly, visit the Coffee Museum and savor traditional Arabic or Turkish coffee served by historically costumed staff as you learn about this age-old beverage.

    Your tour concludes here when your guide departs.

    I am not to sure as there were 5 of us, and we did not book the most popular time to purposely avoid others.
