The UAE’s royals can often be spotted enjoying a bite at some of the country’s top eateries.

Dubai’s own Crown Prince, HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, is a particularly keen foodie, trying everything from high-end Japanese restaurants to casual burger joints.

Meanwhile, HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, vice president of the UAE and ruler of Dubai, has been spotted at City Walk’s Farzi Cafe at least four times since it opened in June 2016.
