Dubai in October : Must-Try Delicacies


Manousheh

The Manousheh is a Lebanon dish that’s also referred to as a local pizza and comprises a range of exotic toppings such as herbs, cheese and olive oil on a flatbread. Among the most commonly found street food in Dubai, it’s a filling meal any time of the day! Head over to Arabian Tea House at The Mall Jumeirah to sample this cheesy delight!

Falafel

A deep-fried savory that is central to vegetarian Arabian food, the falafels are made of ground chickpeas or fava beans. Eat them wrapped in pita bread or enjoy the wholesome goodness with a dollop of hummus – they’re sure to be tasty without a doubt. Enjoy these golden goodies at Zaroob, along Sheikh Zayed Road.

Knafeh

The Queen of Arabic Desserts, Knafeh stands out due to its cheese-based pastry and unique sweet-salt taste. Often garnished with pistachios and rose-scented syrups, it’s the most popular sweet of the region. You can sample a slice of this goodness at Just Kunafa, Downtown Dubai.

Al Majboos

Al Majboos is a classic dish made of rice, onions, and meat that is well seasoned with salt, spices and dried lemon. Closely related to the Indian version of a Biryani, Al Barza offers a sumptuous Majboos that makes for a tasty lunch, just what you need for that perfect siesta in summer!

Shish Tawook

Ubiquitous to Arabic food, Shish Tawook is essentially a well-marinated grilled chicken skewer that’s served with pita bread and hummus. While the choice of meat varies, it’s an easy-to-recognize food in the Middle East and is often paired with fries and pickle. Head over to for a mean combination of Shish Tawook and the dipping sauce. Try from umpteen varieties of the delicacy at Tawook Nation.

Tips for Visiting Dubai in October


  • Although it is the final few days of summer, Dubai in October can be pretty harsh if you’re not from a tropical country. Ensure that you remain well hydrated.
  • It’s a good idea to plan indoor activities during the day such as malls, museums, and amusement parks so that there’s lesser danger of heat-related incidents.
  • A lot of events in Dubai are unplanned and may pop up at the last minute – it helps to confirm these with your local hosts so you can plan better.
  • While the desert safari can be intensely fun at any time, opt for an evening or night safari to enjoy right weather conditions and to experience the chill desert air at nights.
  • Though Dubai is an ultra-modern city, it helps to keep a stole handy in case you’re visiting religious places which may have a few dress restrictions!
