Al Fanar

Emirati in Jumeirah

Al Fanar lays on the old-timey Emirati theme pretty thick with a Land Rover parked outside, a reed ceiling and waiters dressed in traditional garb. Give your taste buds a workout with such local classics as machboos (spicy casserole with rice), saloona (tomato-based stew) or harees (a porridge-like dish with meat). Breakfast is served all day.

Most of the mains are so generously portioned that they are enough for two people.
