Knowing I had only time for one meal while in Dubai, I chose to eat at a high-end Emiratie restaurant – Siraj. This contemporary restaurant is located within Souk Al Bahan and steps from the waterfront with stunning views of the Burj.
I chose this restaurant because they serve camel steak, they are a trendy, great reviews and located within the modern part of the city which provided great contrast from the hustle and grit of the Souks.
For my meal, I ordered dates and tea, hallouimi cheese, camel steak and potatoes followed by the most interesting desert. I ordered a 23 karat gold saffron Mouhalabia. This extremely rich desert is a creamy, milk-bsed dessert which is topped with cotton candy and drizzled with honey that hosts floating flakes of gold.
