Thanksgiving in Dubai


So Thanksgiving is right around the corner and it’s time to bring out the turkey, gravy sauce and yams! As much as we look forward to that day, all we’ll be thinking about this week is the food.

And something else for that matter, how long does it take to cook the turkey, when should I go out and get all the groceries I need, how many people should I invite and, last but not least, how much will all this cost me?

Let’s make this easier on everybody. Here’s a list of the best places to go out on Thanksgiving. You’re guaranteed an amazing, professional meal and at the same time, you still get the chance to spend it with all your loved ones without having to worry about anything but what to wear.


Baker & Spice


The best thing about Baker & Spice is their local, organic, fresh and homemade ingredients. And this is probably what everyone is looking for on Thanksgiving. Although turkey is the bird of the season, because there aren’t any locally-reared turkeys, they’re substituting with chicken that can feed 4-6 people.

And their delicious side dishes are sure to wake up your taste buds: roast potatoes with cracked spice and lemon zest, roasted sweet potatoes with sticky muscovado and cinnamon, pumpkin squash with chickpea and many more!

Sounds delicious right?

Here’s the good part, if you don’t feel like spending your holiday away from home, they deliver! But don’t forget, you need to make your order at least four days in advance, so hurry up!
