Arabian Tea House Outdoor Cafe in Al Bastakiya

After exploring the alleys in Al Bastakiya, we went to have some food and drinks at the Arabian Tea House Cafe. Located in the Al Fahidi roundabout, this is a much-raved outdoor cafe and restaurant that has a beautiful relaxed outdoor ambiance.

They have breakfast options, grilled food, soup/pasta breads and pastries, salads and sandwiches, and desserts, etc. They also specialize in various teas so if you’re a tea-lover, this would be a gem spot in Old Dubai

Place to Eat: Arabian Teahouse Cafe in Al Fahidi District

Winter is the best time to visit this cafe as they open all the areas and you can enjoy the set-up. White canopies adorn the tables and you can enjoy the relaxing environment over tea with friends.

If you go there during summer time (when the heat is unbearable) they close a portion of the cafe. But you can still drop by the shop and enjoy their meals as air conditioning is available.

Exotic Chicken Salad

Whenever we drop by this cafe, we usually order their Exotic Chicken Salad which is made of mixed lettuce, avocado, mango, red onion, tomato, chili and feta cheese mixed with virgin olive oil and fresh lime. This is a must-try dish which will surely satisfy!

The serene ambiance makes this an ideal place for casual talk. But you can still have a good time if you’re alone. WiFi is available for its patrons. Read a book, have some tea, or just stare at the sky.
