    An Indian food tour in Old Dubai with Frying Pan Adventures

    A delicious way to discover one of the most vibrant neighbourhoods of Old Dubai – Meena Bazaar, is to book into the 4-hour long ‘Little India on a plate’ food tour with Frying Pan Adventures. It's getting to connect to the essence of old neighbourhoods holding its head high amidst the new urban landscape of 2020, which in itself, is a story that needed to be told and celebrated. What do you think?

    Eating Up Sharjah With Frying Pan Adventures – Part 2

    “All truly great thoughts are conceived while walking.” ∼ Friedrich Nietzsche, Twilight of the Idols Nothing can be more true than the above quote and that realisation dawns even more on a tour with Frying Pan Adventures. I had recently been on a #savourSHJ trail organized by Frying Pan Adventures in collaboration with Heart of Sharjah. Arva Ahmed, the founder of the former and Fatima Salim Al Shuweihi, Head of Events for Heart of Sharjah, take us through the heritage and glorious tales of Sharjah’s past.

    Arabian Pilgrimage Food Tour With Frying Pan Adventures

    “All truly great thoughts are conceived while walking.” ∼ Friedrich Nietzsche, Twilight of the Idols Culinary journeys and food tours reflect culture, heritage and personality of a city… I am fascinated by street food and culinary journeys that expose me to different cultures and cuisines.

I had been following food blogger Arva Ahmed’s journey even before she had set up tours in a city that…

    Things To Do In Dubai | Like A Tourist In My Own City

    Like A Tourist In My Own City (Once again!) Dubai, my home for almost the last decade, is a quintessential tourist’s haven. It’s a shame that the only thing that comes to mind when one hears Dubai is Shopping. But, walking through the art alleys of Bastakia and the old quarters along the Dubai Creek, watching the sun go down the beautiful and never ending beaches of Jumeirah, catching the stars in a moonlit night over the desert sky… there’s so much more to Dubai. Dubai is a juxtaposition of extremes – the world’s tallest tower to the old Creek where still the Iranian vessels anchor their moors and trade…
