Frying Pan Adventures is the king of food tours in Dubai. It allows you to set aside the glitzy skyscrapers of the new Dubai, and chow down and restaurant-hop your way through old Dubai with an experienced local guide.
A resident of Deira since 1989, Arva’s foodie escapades in the grubby by lanes around her home have unearthed some hidden gems which she now shares through her hugely popular food tours in the city.
Frying Pan Adventures has since expanded into other food trails around Dubai, but the Middle Eastern Food Pilgrimage – lasting about four hours and costing Dh415 – is still the classic choice for unheralded surprises.
Road tripping with a falcon is the kind of unexpected and “only in Dubai” experience worthy of a wealth of hashtags that we’ve come to expect from outings with Arva Ahmed, the foodie tour guide behind Frying Pan Adventures.
The local duo behind Frying Pan Adventures might have a monopoly on food tours in the city, but for good reason. Indian sisters Arva and Farida Ahmed have lived in Dubai all their lives and they know their biryani from their baklava.
Die 32-Jährige ist in Dubai geboren, ihre Eltern stammen aus Indien. Arva organisiert seit 2013 kulinarische Fototouren durch das alte Dubai.
Farida Ahmed, sister of Arva Ahmed, who started Frying Pan Adventures, Dubai’s first culinary walking tours, runs a mouthwatering foodie tour of the Meena Bazaar area, Dubai’s Little India.
To get a feel for the real Dubai, there’s no better way than to book a tour with Frying Pan Adventures. Frying Pan was the first culinary tour outfit in Dubai, and their success is well deserved.
Bubbly Arva, who guides every tour, brings her encyclopaedic knowledge of food to every single dish and ingredient, so not only do you walk away with a bursting tummy, but a head full of historical foodie facts.
