In this food tour of Dubai, we started with some of the most legendary of all Iranian kebabs in Dubai. I then took to exploring the spice souk, and finally we headed over to Bu Qtair to eat a whole fish fry – another one of the most famous, sort of Dubai street food style meals.
AL Ustad Special Kabab – The food here is spectacular. If you’re looking for some mind-blowing flavorful kebabs, this is the place to eat when you’re in Dubai. All the kebabs were amazing, but the lamb marinated lamb was mind-blowing.
Total price – 100 AED ($27.21)
but I think they hooked us up with some dishes
Al Bastakiya – This is a very interesting area of Dubai to explore, it’s a re-created old styles Dubai village. Unfortunately it was a little hot, 45 °C (113 °F) – And HUMID too!, but I still needed to head out and explore.
Boat ride – 1 AED ($0.27)
Lemon juice – 5 AED ($1.36)
Dubai Spice Souk – One of the best places to explore in Dubai is Deira, which is old Dubai, and the Dubai spice souk (market). The market is great to walk around and you’ll find spices galore.
Bu Qtair – When I asked you where I should eat in Dubai, Bu Qtair restaurant was one of the top recommendations. It’s a fish fry restaurant, where you order a whole fish and they deep fry the entire thing. It used to be a street food restaurant, but they now have an indoor restaurant, but the food is still amazing.
Total price – 170 AED ($46.27) for everything
