Happy Find - Zaroob

Exploring Dubai has been limited to the weekends because my weekdays are now overshadowed by work.Yes you  heard right, I am now Miss Adla all over again .Oh the joy of working with other peoples children and Oh the joy that you get to return them to their parents at the end of the school day. It's a  brand new setting for me, it's the first time I'm tackling oopps I meant to say teaching Arab kids. Some are funny , some are rude , some are just too cute  for their boots.  It's all joyous and comical to say the least. OOooooh plenty of stories to share about them . One thing  to note  though is that  my Arabic is improving  a great deal , it's a good barter exchange . They learn English and I raise my Arabic to a newer level , like this one time I heard this little girl say Hashish Hashish and I was like Oh my god what did she just say and then I learn Hashish just means grass here like ofcourse I knew that . No need for panic and wild assumptions , ofcourse Hashish grows in her backyard :) So anyways I'm happy to be doing what I'm doing and if it ain't bonus enough Omar goes to the same school too, so  we''ve been lucky to escape tears and  those first day of school separation anxiety. Hooray  !

Now this blogpost is actually about a happy find, I thought it would be nice to share some  happy chirpy places I have stumbled upon .I am going to say this again, I am really satisfied that  food is not an issue here, I can eat anywhere and everywhere well just about everywhere Alhamdullilah . It is a blessing. So this happy find happens to be a street joint called Zaroob, its very cheery  and reminds me of  a Roti Bakar Menteng pushcart except that it's a little more glitzy in a quirky way. Love their play on colour and any place brave enough to let men sit on pink chairs deserves a mention on my blog. They serve levant street food , you get your hommus and your Manakish or as they pronounce it ' Manouche' ,were all really tasty. Big tick  for my tastebud. My sort  of an eatery and don't you just love those plates. Check them out  here Zaroob.
