Emirati History on a Plate at Al Fanar Restaurant and Cafe

A question often asked by tourists and residents alike is \'where can one find the most authentic Emirati cuisine in the UAE?\' Secrets from ancient Emirati kitchens come alive at Al Fanar Restaurant and Cafe. The hugely popular restaurant, now open at Town Center in Jumeirah, offers a rare combination of traditional and modern Emirati dishes in a unique setting with glimpses of the rich Emirati culture and heritage.

 

Mr Hashem Al Marzouqi, Principal, Al Fanar Restaurant and Café, stressed, \"Local food is one of the first things that tourists search for in a place. At Al Fanar Restaurant and Cafe we serve Emirati history on a plate. Here diners get to enjoy not just the most authentic local cuisine but also travel back in time to discover our way of life and how it has evolved over the decades. Food is an essential part of any country\'s culture and Al Fanar Restaurant and Cafe offers a fascinating insight into our past\".

 

The menu at Al Fanar Restaurant and Cafe boasts many signature historic dishes such as \'Aysh Mohammar Masamak Magli\', \'Beryani Maleh\' and \'Asidat Al Tamor\' that are rarely cooked in Emirati homes today. Mr Marzouqi explained, \"Most of the young Emirati generation do not know these dishes. Neither do people cook these at home any more as it takes a long time to prepare these following \'slow cooking\' process in order to get the right taste. Even though it is not easy to prepare these, we decided to include them in our menu in keeping with the spirit of our identity.”

 

Al Fanar Restaurant and Café first began operation at Dubai Festival City Mall followed by its second outlet in Venetian Village within Ritz Carlton Abu Dhabi Grand Canal. Over the months it has successfully established itself as the UAE’s first and only restaurant offering traditional Emirati cuisine in a themed rustic setting. Inspired from Dubai’s various facets in 1960s, it offers diners a unique experience recreated from the age-old traditions of a Bedouin way of life. Reviving memories of Dubai as a small town on the shores of the Arabian Gulf, every corner of the restaurant has a story to tell. Here, along with glimpses of a bygone era are served the finest Emirati flavours.

Al Fanar Restaurant & Cafe is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner featuring indoor and outdoor dining areas with both modern and traditional Emirati style seating.
