Endless eating. It’s a one-day event and going to be popular, so book ahead. Purani Dilli Sheikh Zayed Road and Downtown will be asking you to throw caution to the wind on Saturday with a special all-you-can-eat selection of Diwali dishes. Between 7pm and midnight, you can chow down for Dh99 per person for unlimited food and soft beverages.
24 Karat gold meal. DIFC is Dubai’s centre of commerce where ideas turn to gold and now so will your lunch. The financial district’s Marea is serving up Golden Burrata for the holiday. Handmade burrata has been flown in from southern Italy, coated with gold leaves and is accompanied by fresh tomato, taggiasca olive & salsa verde for Dh220.
Tiffin time. If you don’t fancy going out, Tiffin & More’s Diwali set delivery menu is going from Dh50 for a four-person spread. Whether you run a vegetarian or carnivorous household, there’s something for everyone including our favourites Malai kofta and coin puries. The combos are available from today until next Tuesday via Zomato, Deliveroo or Talabat.
South Indian suppers. Eat the traditional way with “thalis” from a menu that celebrates regional spices and flavours.Abu Dhabi’s Zambar in Bawabat Al Sharq mall is offering a four-course non-vegetarian thali for Dh79. Begin with a light mint and coriander chicken, a hearty nilgiri mutton korma or the spicy lucknowi dum fish curry.
Sweet gifts. Thinking about others? Holidays are great excuses to send gifts and Kibsons have a beautiful range of sweet boxes from Dh50. Order online and make someone’s day.
