Eating Up Dubai

feature

You heard about my trip to Qatar, where Soraya cooked up a storm and fed me all too well. Now it’s time for a total flip and share my escapades in Dubai, the city that has way too much going on! AND way too much to eat!

Che and Soraya seriously tried to fit in as much of Dubai in 4 days as they could. From general touristy go to places like The Palm, The Dessert Safari (which was epic!) and speed walking the Global village an hour before closing, to mellow days at the beach, and mall hopping. However, these places didn’t matter much to Soraya and Che as much as the list of places they wanted me to eat at. It’s very rare to find people cook at home in Dubai (so I have been told), so to experience this eat out culture, we ate out… A LOT!

It was totally different from what I experienced in Qatar. Granted I did have Soraya chained to the kitchen cooking and baking all the things I asked for…

Just so you know, in 4 days we broke my record of eating extravagantly out of home and had food from 12 different places… and the majority of the time, they were big meals… I don’t know how I didn’t arrive back looking like a blimp…??

So here is just a touch of what we guzzled down at some of the places we visited in Dubai… Food inspiration and memories!
