Al Fanar

Emirati in Ras Al Khaimah

Squeeze between the many pillars in the dining hall of this Emirati chain to sit at a table and dig into local flavours. It's known for its machboos (a casserole of meat or fish, rice and onions cooked in a spicy sauce) and its seafood dishes such as saloona samak (a stew of fish in a tomato and tamarind sauce).
