Emirati cuisine

Emirati cuisine is a blend of many Middle Eastern and Asian cuisines. The modern diet of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is cosmopolitan, featuring dishes from around the world. A lot of people confuse Levantine food as being Emirati/Khaleej, but shawarma, hummous, tabbouleh, and mixed grill, whilst having similar characteristics, are fairly recent additions and do not do justice to the “soul food” that makes up the Emirati menu.
