Preserving Emirati culinary traditions
A brainchild of Hashem Al Marzouki, Al Fanar at Abu Dhabi is his second venture while his first and highly acclaimed outlet is in Dubai. You can choose to dine in barasti outdoor booths or within mud-brick rooms, all of which communicate a friendly neighborhood feel.
Flavors from the past
