Dubai is an expensive place in every aspect, and the food industry has had its share. Dubai is a city established in the recent past. Therefore, it does not have a long history, as such, this is reflected in the food culture. We do not remember any local food unique to them. This is a city where you can find many world flavor brands. For example, we experienced the American flavors we were curious about in Dubai. Let’s explore the taste points in Dubai.
Kapadokya Turkish Kitchen Restaurant
On the first day we go to Dubai, there is a Turkish restaurant, more precisely a kebab restaurant, next to the hotel. It was a 3-minute walk from our hotel and the tour guide praised it. We took ourselves to this restaurant with the tiredness of the first day. We ordered kebabs and appetizers. We evaluated the taste as average. As you know, it cannot compete with the kebabs in our country, even though its owner is Turkish. Though the comments are pretty good, it seems that foreigners like it. We only went once. Prices are expensive as usual :(.
The Cheesecake Factory
A place we love very much. As the name suggests, it’s a cheesecake heaven. They have a great variety of delicious cheesecakes. Of course, besides cheesecake, there are many other food alternatives. We went to the Cheesecake Factory both in the Dubai Marina area and inside the Mall of Emirates.
We have a favorite salad at The Cheesecake Factory, we definitely order the Vegan Cobb salad. Their other salads also look amazing, we are sure they are great too. We sometimes order pasta, sometimes a burger, sometimes a meat product or pizza next to our salad. In general, whatever we ate is successful.
Of course, we do the last shot of the meal with cheesecake. Let’s be warned, the assorted cheesecakes can make you dizzy! There are many, many types; Oreo, cinnamon, chocolate, caramel, pineapple, strawberry, marshmallow, peanut, and many more… Our favorite is white chocolate raspberry cheesecake, its name is exactly White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle. Legendary, legendary! We also tried the cinnamon cheesecake, which is nice, but as we said, the white chocolate raspberry cheesecake is our favorite;).
If there is The Cheesecake Factory in the places we travel, we definitely have a meal there. Nam namm nammm!
We went to Magnolia Bakery in New York, but the famous banana pudding was over, so we could only buy cocoa muffins. When we saw that there was Magnolia Bakery in Dubai, we added it to the list of must-go destinations. Magnolia Bakery serves with a beautiful concept inside the Dubai Mall. This time we found the famous banana magnolia and we loved it! It really deserves its reputation :).
Located in Burj Khalifa, Armani restaurant is a very nice option for your special day celebrations. We had a very enjoyable dinner at this beautiful Italian restaurant for our friend’s birthday and we were able to watch the water shows in the middle clearly from eye distance during dinner. In terms of price, we can say that it is quite normal compared to the general price levels in Dubai.
One evening we toured around Dubai’s iconic hotel Burj Al Arab, we entered this convenient steak restaurant. It is located on the 25th floor of Jumeirah Beach Hotel. It can be a good alternative for steak lovers, but we did not like it very much. It was very expensive and it did not meet the price in terms of ambience. Although the area was narrow, there was a dance show. The high price may be due to this show.
Stay with flavor!
