Wherever you go in Abu Dhabi, you’re sure to find a restaurant, bar or café to suit your appetite and plans. Indian food is incredibly popular, and vegetarians will be happy to hear that there are many places that serve a wide range of delicious vegetable-based meals. Delivery services are very popular, and nearly every food establishment will deliver to your accommodation.
As Abu Dhabi is a Muslim state, alcohol is only permitted to be served in select venues, so many bars and alcohol-serving restaurants are located in hotels. However, there are some great bars and nightclubs in the emirate, with events going on nearly every day of the week.
There are many large supermarkets in Abu Dhabi, where you’ll find a variety of foods to choose from, including many big British brands – so if you’re feeling peckish for something from home, you’ll be in luck! These supermarkets stock everything you could possibly want to try, making it perfect for travellers on a budget, or staying in self-catering accommodation.
Thanks to Abu Dhabi’s international melting pot of people and cultures, you can find food from any country. From Italian to Indian, or Persian to French, you can also choose from the major fast-food chains, such as Pizza Hut, Burger King and KFC. Street food vendors offer delicious easy-to-eat foods if you’re on the go, as well as shisha cafes, which combine the aromatic shisha pipes with menus of tasty snacks and finger foods.
