Clockwise from top- naan, dolmades (grape leaves stuffed with rice), eggplant puree and grilled harumi cheese. We ordered grilled chicken, lamb and prawns as well. Liked the prawns the best.
Dubai is definitely a super modern city with skyscrapers bursting thru its skyline. At the same time, it's a conservative and diverse society. We didn't know anyone locally but, we talked to the taxi drivers from India, the waiters from Bangladesh, the butlers from the Phillipines, a receptionist from China and a manager from Romania. All trying to make a better living for themselves and Dubai has delivered thus far.
