Bu Qtair Restaurant
It's no secret that a city's best food isn't always served on a white tablecloth. Case in point: Bu Qtair! Until the 1920s, most of Dubai’s population had been involved in the pearling and fishing industry: 7,000 of the 10,000 to be exact. In that vein, fish is a central piece of the emirate’s cuisine and history. Bu Qtair offers a glimpse of this tradition and its simple, no fuss deliciousness in a modest cafeteria sat behind the Burj Al Arab. Come early to the restaurant to avoid the long waiting times. With the staff hollering customers’ names and the smell of fish and shrimp invigorating the atmosphere, this simple restaurant and its simpler menu offerings is not to be missed, especially if you’re looking for a change from the city’s more luxurious restaurants.
