Dinner at Siraj — Souk Al Bahar, Dubai

Dubai is also known for its varied cuisines and cultures. Every country in the Arab world offers different taste. Spices play an important role in Arabic food and it is so tough to define with its different cuisines such as Persian, Mediterranean, Yemeni and Levantine. Siraj gives you the true definition of Emirati Levantine cuisine. Every dish is authentic with a contemporary twist.

We were about to meet a friend in Dubai on a Friday night and since we wanna try out some Emirati Cuisine, we found Siraj. It is located at Souk Al Bahar with views of Burj Khalifa and Dubai Fountains. As I enter the restaurant, I was stunned by the beautiful interior they have. The cursive calligraphy from the walls and bar stools are very striking. The restaurant’s vibe is very Arabesque yet stylish. The overall feel represents the Emirati culture. They also have an outdoor seating area facing Dubai Mall.
