Get a taste of the Bedouin life by dining under a tree or enjoy a spread in a hut like the fishermen of the 1960s at the Al Fanar Restaurant in Town Centre, Jumeirah.

The Emirati restaurant has introduced a brunch menu to go with its themed rustic setting that takes diners back into the pre-union era of the country. Putting national identity on a plate, the restaurant offers Emirati breads, appetisers, soups, salads, main dishes and desserts that have been created using family recipes.

The cafe is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with indoor and outdoor dining areas at its three venues — Dubai Festival City Mall, Ritz Carlton Abu Dhabi and Town Centre.
