BRB, reserving a table…

With curfew extended to 11pm, most restaurants across Dubai are getting ready to reopen this week. And what better way to celebrate dining out than going to a place that has HH Sheikh Hamdan’s stamp of approval?

Other than being an adventure seeker and travel photographer, the Crown Prince of Dubai is also known for his penchant to try new places. So, we have taken the liberty to round up five eateries that the royal has been spotted in.

In January 2018, the Prince and his father HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Ruler of Dubai, were spotted dining at the Grecian-inspired restaurant. But even before then, Sheikh Hamdan gave Gaia his seal of approval back just five days after it opened. After his visit the chef posted a cheeky picture of the Dubai royal strangling him, as he sported a wide grin.

It seems like the royal is a fan of Greek cuisine, as he was also spotted Avli by Tashas in Four Seasons DIFC. He was photographed with South African restaurateur Natasha Sideris, just a few days after the launch of the restaurant.

The travel inspired restaurant in Dubai Mall was also honoured with a visit from Sheikh Hamdan and his close friend and companion Shiekh Saeed bin Maktoum bin Rashid, who is affectionately known as ‘Uncle Saeed’. Somewhere offers Middle Eastern cuisine, but with a twist that you can’t miss.

Are there any burger fans here? Then you would be happy to know that Fazza has given this edgy urban burger chain his stamp of approval. Open in Dar Wasl Mall, the burger place caters to chicken and beef lovers alike, and if you are vegetarian, then you should try She Burger’s ‘Krazy Kale’ or ‘Avo Salad’ salads.

This hidden gem located at DIFC opened its doors to Sheikh Hamdan numerous times. BB Social Dining was founded by Alex Stumpf, who is the head chef behind Peyote, and offers Middle and Far Eastern cuisine, including edamame hummus and baos – some of the dishes that Sheikh Hamdan enjoyed.
