Al Tawasol

Yemeni in Deira

Camp out on the carpet in the main dining room or in a private 'Bedouin-style tent' at this traditional Yemeni eatery. Staff will spread a flimsy plastic sheet to protect the rug from earthy dishes such as turmeric-laced rice topped with curried mutton, oven-roasted chicken mandi (rice topped with spicy stew) or an entire sheep if you're really peckish (Dhs800).
