Chef Diaries: An authentic, Arabic food experience with Chef Moataz

business bay restaurants

Food in the Middle East is a huge part of our culture. The food heritage in Middle Eastern countries like the UAE, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar is incredibly rich and versatile, with a variety of scrumptious dishes that would cause any foodie to instantly drool. Food is characterized by slight, little variations in every country, depending on what specific spices and meat the locals prefer. But, overall, there are many dishes that are popular throughout the Middle East, like falafel and Shawarma. Arabic dishes are enriched with herbs and spices like cumin, nutmeg, mint, and caraway, and made more exclusive and mouth-watering with additional embellishments, such as olives, lentils, vegetables, and chickpeas. One of the most popular traditional, Arabic dishes that retain the authenticity of this diverse food culture and make it rich, is Bahraini Tikka.

Bahraini Tikka is a delicious, traditional lamb dish that is popular in Bahrain. It is flavoured with dry lime and served with a traditional bread, called Tannour, along with Bahraini Bagel, fresh vegetables, chilli, onions, and lemon. It is not just a dish, it is an experience that can make your day, if you love unique, delectable meat dishes that are on the sour side. The making of this dish involves soft, juicy pieces of high-quality lamb meat, which are marinated and then grilled over charcoal.

However, since this is a famous dish from Bahrain and not many people in Dubai are aware of it, it is not found easily in Dubai. However, we, at Gulf Court Hotel Business Bay, believe that food is a great way of delving into a well-preserved, lavish culture and embracing it. Being one of the best hotel business bay restaurants in Dubai, we take our food segment quite seriously.
