Places to Eat

Arabian Tea House

The Arabian Tea House offers a taste of traditional Emirati flavors. It is set in the historic Al Fahidi neighborhood and it’s a charming spot for breakfast or lunch. Try local dishes like balaleet (sweet vermicelli with eggs) or harees (slow-cooked wheat and meat), and while there make sure to try out some fragrant karak chai (spiced tea) while admiring the old-world charm.
