How much do you know about Emirati cuisine?

The local cuisine has its own unique qualities combined with influences from around the world as UAE has a history in trading. Cinnamon, saffron, turmeric, limes and dried fruit are used abundantly.

Popular dishes include Harees (meat cooked with wheat in a clay pot), Majboos (boiled meat in spiced water and dried lime), and Madrooba (fish in a spicy sauce). Food is usually eaten with rice or khubz (bread) Umm Ali, a popular dessert made from bread, cream and dried fruit is one of the traditional ways to end a meal.

Serving coffee is a ritual in itself, ‘kahwa’ is mildly flavored with cardamom, saffron and accompanied by dates.

Fresh juices are popular and can be bought from most local vendors and Arabic restaurants.
