UAE2020 Day 06: Arabian Tea House

Its the morning of our 6th day. We kicked the day off in search of some excellent and hearty breakfast at an old favourite place, the Arabian Tea House.

a firm favourite

Interestingly enough from its address although we have no idea what 17 C Sikka refers to (hopefully Ginny and Sern can shed some light on the matter), we do know that the restaurant is listed under the community (312) of Al Souq Al Kabeer السوق الكبير with an estimated population of 46,929 as at 31st December 2018.

Its website proudly declares: “The core concept of Arabian Tea House Café revolves around the rich culture and hospitality of the people of the Arabian Peninsula. Keeping this in mind giving our guests a taste of Genuine traditional Arabic Hospitality will be the core of the selling proposition for guests visiting  Arabian Tea House Cafe.”

We couldn't agree more. From the moment we stepped into the courtyard we were embraced by a sense of calm and serenity. The clever use of predominantly white and blue colours further adds to a soothing ambiance.

let's have ourselves some breakfast!

The turquoise benches, white rattan chairs, lace curtains and beautiful flowers also helps to lend an air of calmness. The last time we were here we even saw birds in the branches of the tree overhead. This time around the courtyard was covered and separated from the tree above.

ravenous people tearing into the bread

excellent service, as always

our favourite karak chai (tea)

best way to start the day!

Same as the last time (all those years ago) we ordered the "Mr. Ali’s Favorite Breakfast" consisting of scrambled eggs stewed with tomato served with cheddar cheese, baked beans, yogurt, watermelon jam and tanoor bread (wagafi).

time to dig in!

Their comprehensive menu can be found here.

After a very hearty breakfast we headed back to the hotel since Ginny and Sern were a little under the weather and needed some rest. We on the other hand, were rearing to go on a proper walkabout to explore the entire Bur Dubai souks south of the Creek as well as the Deira souks north of it.
