Al Hallab

Middle Eastern in Jumeirah

Head here to refuel after you have exhausted yourself on the adjacent ski slopes. Although the surroundings are a drab brown-on-brown, the dishes are colourfully spiced and well prepared. The three-course daily menu (Dhs58) is excellent value, or there's an 11-plus choice of salads for lightweights. Stand outs include the spicy chicken and aubergine makloubeh with rice and pine nuts.
