Be­fore the city shifted south to desert sub­urbs named af­ter sheikhs, Ras Al Khaimah had two sides di­vided by the creek. Each had its cafe­te­rias of renown. In the south, there was Ruwais Cafe­te­ria for zinker burg­ers and Ma­lik Al Karak for karak. In the north, there was King of Berger and Noor Al Huda. This tiny cafe­te­ria is in the cen­tre of the Maaridh, a stone’s throw from the af­ter­noon fish mar­ket and souq. Drive down Ibn Dha­her Street, named af­ter the 17th cen­tury poet who im­mor­talised this mar­itime neigh­bour­hood in verse, and then park at the mouth of Ras Al Khaimah creek to sip tea by the sea.
