It was a warm breezy day when we headed off to Old Town Dubai from our hotel in the Jumeriah Beach area of Dubai.

We first stopped by the Old Souk Markets, then walked across the street and took a boat over Dubai Creek into Old Town Dubai.

Across the street is the Deira Old Souk Marine Transport Station.  Just get in line, buy a ticket, then jump in the boat when it’s your turn.  It’s a quick and smooth ride across Dubai Creek to Old Town Dubai.

Once we got off the boat, we took a leisurely walk through the old streets of Dubai.  We passed by the Dubai Museum and a cross culture restaurant comprised of Café and Bistro.

The street entrance of the Arabian Tea House took us into a waiting area with a comfy bench to wait on until we are seated at our table.

The fresh and open atmosphere of the tea house is like a breath of fresh air.  The floor is nothing more than white rock that lends to an airy feeling.

There’s rattan tables and chairs along with aqua painted benches for sitting.  The white linens and pillows add to the relaxed feeling.  

The ceiling is covered with artificial vines and white lights giving it a feeling of being outdoors.

There’s also covered outdoor seating if you prefer eating there.

“Experience Emirati Hospitality” is the cover of the menu.  Below you will find lots of pictures of the items in the menu.  We ordered tea, chicken pita with cucumber salad, and hummus.
