UAE is a country of rich traditions and heritage. Throughout the ages, cuisine of the Gulf Countries was reflected by the culture, climate, close proximity to the generous waters of the Arabian Gulf, other available resources of the region, as well as its involvement in major trade routes. Nevertheless, the customs of preparing food remained very much like they were centuries in the past, with minor additions, like chicken meat and certain types of side dishes.
Today, Dubai, Sharjah, Abu Dhabi and other cities of UAE have a great variety of cafes, restaurants, and other types of venues which offer authentic Arabic cuisines. Whether you are craving for a tasty Samak Mashwi, rich Mandi or a sweet Luqaimat, there is always a place where you can find it somewhere nearby.
