Last Tuesday we met friends, old and new, for dinner at Al Fanar Restaurant at Festival City. This is a new restaurant that serves traditional Emirati food.
First came the appetizers – robyan mashwi (prawns), koftat samak, balalit (sweet noodles with omelet) and lovely flat bread.
(I wasn’t going to post this picture, but I figure if you stick your tongue out while someone is taking a picture, all bets are off.)
We had a brief rest between courses.
Then came the main courses – samak magli, saloona samak badaweyah, thereed, and machboos dajaj.
Of course, there were several rounds of tea.
Then came dessert – khanfaroush, asidat bobar, khobar khameer, and leqaimat.
The food, service, and atmosphere were all wonderful. Highly recommended.
