Dubai is one of the few places in the world where you can find every big food chain, and outlets of food chains very easily. It is also best place for muslims or people who follow and prefer Halal food, because here almost everything will be halal. If it is not halal then you will be notified about it or you can ask the restaurant to know more about any food item. But lets not get into details of this thing and talk more about Traditional food of Dubai.
If we look at the past, we will find lots of item as traditional food of United Arab Emirates. We will discuss one by one, but before that let me tell you one thing that meat is very common in all items. They prefer meat(goat/camel) then chicken in their food.
Lets start with their most famous rice dishes with lots of meat in it. Its called “Mandi”, “Madbi” and “Madfoon”. In all these almost all ingredients are same, but the way in which chicken or meat is prepared is different. They are prepared with both chicken and meat (goat/camel) and served with a very tasty sauce made from tomatoes. They are served in a large dish with lots of rice. Before this a soup is also served which is unique in its taste. Overall its a very tasty and fulfilling dish.
