The Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding (SMCCU) is now holding brunch and dinners, allowing guests to indulge in traditional meals while an Emirati host chats to them about the local customs and traditions.
The SMCCU is a non-profit organisation that strives to remove barriers between people of different nationalities and raise awareness of local culture, customs and religion.
Advance booking is required for the meals, which are held in the ambience of the Centre’s Bastakiya house, a typical wind tower house in one of the oldest Emirati neighbourhoods in Bur Dubai.
The new Cultural Dinner is hosted every Tuesday evening at 7.00pm, price AED 95pp (€19), while the new Cultural Brunch is held every Saturday at 10.30am, price AED 80pp (€16).
Breakfast is also hosted every Monday and Wednesday at 10.00am (AED 60pp; €12) while lunch is hosted every Sunday and Tuesday at 1.00pm (AED 70pp; €14).
