FOR FOOD­IES

What's On (Abu Dhabi) - - ACTIVE -

Moslem

You’ll spot Moslem on the fringes of the Grand Bazaar sim­ply by search­ing for a queue that snakes down a set of stairs to the street be­low. Sit­u­ated just off Panz­dah-e-Khor­dad, the queue con­tin­ues out­side for a fur­ther 50 me­tres or so, such is the pop­u­larly of its tah-chin. Hardly any­one speaks English, but that doesn’t mat­ter – it’s some of the best food you’ll ever eat.

Shan­diz

Sit­u­ated on Jor­dan Street, if you’re not hun­gry then don’t even at­tempt to visit Shan­diz. This is a mam­moth af­fair, with ke­babs, lamb cut­lets and var­i­ous other cuts of meat served on gi­ant sword-like skew­ers. The restau­rant it­self is a large open space with a far more for­mal air than Moslem, but the shash­lik and the ser­vice are top notch.

Dizi

The name of one of Iran’s most pop­u­lar dishes, Dizi is an elab­o­rately dec­o­rated restau­rant with a red­brick façade and enough char­ac­ter to charm the socks off you. Lo­cated on Azar Shahr Street, its spe­cial­ity is the afore­men­tioned dizi, a lamb, potato and chick­pea stew that you’ll warmly wel­come in the colder months. Like Moslem, it’s hugely pop­u­lar, so be pre­pared to wait.
