What you can expect

Dubai is a foodies’ paradise! With a multicultural vibe plus the local cuisine, the choice of dishes in this destination are divine. On this private tour, your local host has picked 10 tastings for you to try. Discover how delicious the food in Dubai is!

Your culinary journey starts in an authentic and cozy restaurant. Smell & feel the history of this place with a traditional tasting of Riqaq - Emirati pancake flavored with cheese or eggs. You will also try delicious Tabbouleh & Moutabal. Tabbouleh is a classic dish from the middle east, and it is served with a side of Moutabal, a tasty citric spread. Combine them on a Khubz (Arabic bread) and experience a unique mix of flavors like no other.

Make your way to the abra station where you’ll take a small detour to go to the Spice Souk. Go through its narrow alleys, while your nose is delighted with the many smells of aromatic herbs and spices. Feel free to do a little souvenir shopping, your local guide will even teach you how to bargain to get the best out of this experience. Here, you’ll have dates with a twist: covered in camel milk chocolate! Take some back home as a yummy gift.

Take a sweet break with a delicious saffron ice cream scoop at the parlor. With this sugar rush, your experience continues as you hop on an abra. Enjoy a ride to the other side of the city where you’ll catch stunning views of the Dubai Creek.

A unique dish awaits you at the next local boutique restaurant, a place that boasts an authentic Arabian ambiance. Indulge in a camel burger or as the locals call it, a “hump burger.” This is definitely a must-try when in Dubai. Cholesterol free and lean - a tasty and healthy dish for you to enjoy!

Your last stop and the ultimate coffee break will be at the cool Coffee museum. Learn about the origins of coffee and try traditional Arabic or Turkish coffee prepared by staff in traditional costumes.

Now that your mouth is watering after reading all the delicious tastings this tour has to offer, all you have to do is pick your favorite local guide! This tour is 100% personalized to your liking, let your local host know your preferences, and they will change the plan to your preferences and dietary needs.
