MORE ABOUT ABU DHABI

Relax On The Beaches
Relax On The Beaches

Half of the fun of international travel for me is discovering what food I have been missing by not living in whatever area I happen to be visiting. In my experience, the little, weathered old granny cooking over a propane tank on a street corner has a lot more knowledge and tricks up her sleeve than the fancy cook in the restaurant a few meters away. And she’s a lot more fun to talk to.

So, when in Abu Dhabi, try out the local cuisine! It is rooted in the Middle Eastern cooking traditions and has its own fantastic flavors and flair. Simple, but meticulous. Spicy, but subtle. Delicate, but flavorful.
