While Dubai is lauded for breaking many a world record, it remains unnoticed for one of its greatest achievements—preserving the diverse plates of food culture across the Middle East. Few cities in the world can boast of having Emirati, Egyptian, Palestinian, Lebanese and Iranian specialties, all in one unassuming but utterly delicious neighborhood.

What to expect

Join a friendly resident food-lover and certified guide who will take you through our favorite Middle Eastern restaurants and shops in the bustling district of Murraggabat in Deira.

We walk from one restaurant to another, sampling flavors and sharing stories of Dubai and of food along the way. Taste deftly tossed cheesy pastry, crisp falafels with moist emerald green bellies, Emirati spiced meat and pistachio-studded Iranian ice cream.

Bag a stash of Lebanese baklava and learn about where to buy Iranian ''sargol" saffron. Keep your taste buds honest with our Middle Eastern trail in Deira—we'll regale you with flavorful-spun stories, gastro trivia and above all, the flavors that have made our stomachs groan with pleasure over the years.

This tour is designed for those looking for a causal and local experience if you are looking for a fancy dining experience or have planned a heavy meal or a hectic day prior, this tour may not be suited as a well-rested and hungry tummy is critical to enjoying the experience!
