Walking along Dubai we were wondering were we can eat a camel. I know – it may sound terrible – but for this one time we really wanted to try it. We walk into a small restaurant just infront of the old town and we sat down. It was very sunny afternoon and although camel meat was nothing special – Tabbouleh definitley was. It is extreamly healthy salad, very refreshing.
