Experience a 3.5-hour culinary tour through the Orient and taste delicious Arabic specialties. Experience the atmosphere of the exotic markets, smell the aroma of spices, and enjoy a traditional Arabic meal.
What to Expect
If there is one thing that visitors to Dubai are asked on their return home, it's this: What foods did you try when you were in the Middle East? Participants on this tour can answer: fresh mint, crispy Arabic pastries, falafel (deep-fried balls made from mashed beans or chickpeas), delicious meats, and rice served with Arabic herbs and spices.
Become a connoisseur before leaving Dubai. Visit the vegetable, fruit, and fish market, and discover the spices and aromas that are typical of Jordanian, Palestinian, Iranian, Syrian, and Arabic cuisine. Visit a baklava store and sample this famous pastry made with layers of filo and filled with chopped almonds or walnuts. You can also enjoy traditional Arabic bread fresh from the oven.
Taste falafel hot from the fryer and learn more about the lesser-known Palestinian and Jordanian specialties. Enjoy a traditional Arabic meal inside a tent. Smell the scent of saffron, enjoy traditional stone-baked bread, and dine like a sheikh – sitting on the floor and eating with your hands.
Small shops huddle together in the narrow lands of the spice souk. Here you can enjoy the delicious aromas of cardamom, cloves, and coriander. Pakistani vendors sell cinnamon sticks, peppercorns, and henna from open jute bags. Coffee, tea, nuts, almonds, pistachios, saffron, flowers, and dried fruits are also on offer at the market. Experience the enchanting atmosphere and breathe in the exotic fragrances.
