Try manakish, a sort of traditional "Arabic street food” made of pita and melted cheese with lots of herbs.
How to try manakish in Dubai
Manakish is a traditional Lebanese dish. A pita wraps melted cheese with lots of chopped herbs and olives. This dish is usually served hot. Eat with your hands as soon as it cools down. Alternatively, manakish can be used as a small, but very wholesome snack, and even served as a complement to meat dishes.
You can buy original manakish in the street - at small trucks or cafes. Local vendors are obsessive about cleanness and food quality, so street food brings no negative surprises in the UAE.
