A photo journal of Ravi and then some…

Walking around the lively streets of Satwa is one of my favorite things to do when the weather is perfect in Dubai. We began with a glorious meal at Ravis, continued with Chai Karak and ended with Knefeh. In terms of ordering, I would recommend telling the waiting exactly what you enjoy and he can work around that.

      Since you like eating out in Dubai, I suggest you start using Forkly (https://forkly.com/).

      Forkly is a social network for rating restaurant dishes & posting photos of dishes. It’s like twitter/instagram for foodies!
      It’s an easy simple way to check out photos of what dishes people are eating around you & to easily recommend the dishes you love & discover new dishes/restaurant.

      It’s really fun! It is worth checking out. It is becoming really popular in Middle East, especially Dubai.
      And they have tools for bloggers like you: https://forkly.com/bloggers

      Here is their iPhone app to get started: http://itun.es/iSr4YS

      And keep up the great work with your blog!
      I hope to see you soon on forkly so I can follow you & see you tastes & ratings =)

      Haven’t been to either Ravi or Firas in ages. I was overfed so much Knafeh as a child that I have grown to reject it as an adult. I still eat it at gatherings but I always sit there wondering why everyone else is enjoying it so much :-) I was told by the supposedly REAL Firas Sweets in Sharjah that the one in Dubai is totally unrelated and that the former establishment believes that the latter actually “borrowed” their name so that they can draw the crowds. I have tried the one in Sharjah (off King Faisal Street on a parallel side road; on your right hand-side if you are going towards the “Islamic” souk) and must say that last I tried it so long ago, it had great Knafeh na3meh – their khishneh was not as good (at least not in my opinion).

      I liked that this post had so many pics – I would rather look at photos than burden my brain with reading, at least at this late hour…

        Haha, I laughed when you said that you were overfed Knefeh when you were growing up. That is such an Arab thing. I think we were all overfed everything. Regarding Knefehs the only ones that I really enjoy are the homemade ones. They seem lighter and are such a joy to eat. I have heard that the one in Shajah is better but I have never been…

        I’m happy you enjoyed the post. I always try to include lots of photos in all of my posts. I would consider that Fork It Over Dubai is 50% photos and 50% writing. I know that my readers sometimes want to just lay back and enjoy some quality food photography!

        Why don’t you join one of my Tuesday Dinners? Would be nice to have you!

          Thank you for your kind offer. I shall consider it. Dining out generally tends to be an on the spur of the moment thing with me, so adhering to a schedule might be tricky but I shall try me best.
