Frying Pan Adventures

Dubai is known as a sprawling, modern city, full of innovation and wonder. But amidst all this new development, Dubai has retained a rich cultural history. At the heart of this culture lies the eclectic mix of cuisines on offer. Frying Pan Adventures will take you on a tour of hidden gems and into a world that can truly be described as 'foodie heaven'.

At the beating heart of Middle Eastern tourism lies beautiful, sun-scorched Dubai. With its record-breaking buildings and ground-breaking facilities, Dubai is a modern city by any standards, but it has still managed to retain a rich and wonderful cultural zeal that courses through the veins of the city and its inhabitants. Diving headlong into old Dubai, you will find architecture, music, fashion and trade that harks back through the centuries amidst the bustle of modern tourism. Central to Dubai's rich culture is its long history of both Arabian and international foods, and this is immediately evident as sweet and savoury aromas fill the air.

If the thought of those aromas has your mouth watering, you should take an enchanting food tour into old Dubai with Frying Pan Adventures. Specialising in showcasing the hidden gems and often overlooked food secrets of one of the fastest growing cities on earth, Frying Pan Adventures will take you on a breathtaking tour that will not only have your taste buds tingling, but will also show you the sights that other tourists may simply pass by. Most of these tours last between three and four hours, but some may take twice that time to munch your way through.

The city of Dubai has long been a hub for trade in the Middle East. This trade has seen cultures and cuisines from all over the globe infiltrate the streets of the old city, creating an eclectic mix of dining experiences, rarely found elsewhere. Frying Pan Adventures aim to enlighten your palate with visits to wonderful little back alley restaurants and markets, where you will be greeted with a smile and a little taste of something different.

You will be truly surprised by the international cuisine on offer, from Europe to Africa, you can taste how these flavours have entwined and fused into a booming sub-culture of street food to create foodie heaven. With various tours available at different times of the year, you will find something that tickles your fancy with Frying Pan Adventures. Just remember to bring your appetite and your camera.
