Food Tours in Dubai with Longtime Locals

Our small group food tours in Dubai are immersive experiences that serve local favourites and take you where crowds don’t go. We show you what old timers would vouch for, in parts of the city that few tourists and newer expats visit.

BOCA x Frying Pan Adventures Iftar Inspired by Old Dubai

Iftar Inspired by Old Dubai

Join an iftar experience this Ramadan that is collaboratively curated by BOCA and our Frying Pan team, each representing different sides of Dubai with a parallel passion for flavors, cultures and stories.

Our team at Frying Pan Adventures has worked with BOCA’s Chef Matthijs Stinnissen to curate a menu that pays tribute to our favourite restaurants and flavours across the tours. This is a series of dishes that is as much our joint tribute to the timeless flavors of Old Dubai as to the innovative spirit of New Dubai.
