Dubai hipsters pack into Zaroob, which would be right at home in London's Shoreditch or New York's Williamsburg neighbourhoods, thanks to its polished cement floors and street art. But the bustling eatery in Jumeirah Tower Building is undeniably Arab in feel. Indeed, the menu was inspired by street vendors from across the Eastern Mediterranean's Levant region.
Enjoy wood fire oven-baked man'oushe – a stuffed, flat bread typically found in Lebanon. Indulge in shawarma cooked in the authentic way over burning charcoal. Or try kushari, an Egyptian dish of rice, lentils and chickpeas topped with onion. Whatever you pick, it's pretty hard to go wrong here.
