We kid you not


One of the problems of living in Dubai is food. Wait! It's not that we don't get enough of it or it isn't good enough.

The problem is that we're too spoiled for choice. Not one, not two but around four restaurants open up in the city each day.

Right now Dubai has 16,000 eateries...

Wanting to order dishes after seeing drool-worth images on Instagram and Snapchat is totally understandable!

Interesting and innovative stuff excites diners...

On the flip side...

Extreme competition sometimes forces restaurants that can't cope up out of business. Many things come into play if restaurants want to get it right – concept, quality, service, location, pricing among others.
