Say hello to Al Farwania Restaurant – a tiny little bolthole of a (35-year-old) karak gem in Umm Suqeim.
For over three decades Al Farwania Restaurant has been serving its famous karak to those in the know, many of which, form an orderly queue in their cars outside for a grab and go chai. The small family business is now being managed by a lovely chap named Feras who has been at the helm for the last 10 years after the owner returned to Kerala.
Alongside the self-proclaimed “best karak in Dubai”, Al Farwania also serves breakfast, lunch and dinner including paratha concoctions, curry, grilled meats and more, alongside Chinese rice and noodle dishes. There are ample vegetarian options.
The Huntr didn’t try any food but we loved the karak (1AED).
Insider tip: Al Farwania Restaurant is open from 6 am until midnight every day. To order for takeaway call +971 (0)4 348 7451 and wait in the car queue outside.
