So, no one ever told me how much better food tastes when you’re in a desert oasis. I can’t explain how good these were so close your eyes and imagine chewing on heaven while your toes are wriggling in warm silky sand and balmy breezes laden with scents of musk, sandalwood, Arabian oils and exotic perfumes…Yes it’s time for you to treat yourself and book a trip!
Here’s as much deets on the foods as I can remember, I couldn’t learn all the “arabically” Emarati/Emirati cuisine …but I did eat enough for me and You. Bonus: Dirham notes below (UAE Money)
