Abu Dhabi is one of the richest cities on Earth, meaning it’s also one of the most expensive to visit. That’s doesn’t mean you can’t find a few things for cheap, including food.
Shawarma Time offers both Lebanese and Middle Eastern fare, but, true to their name, they primarily deal in shawarma. The food here is fresh and enjoyable with quite a varied menu if you’re looking to sample something new. Best of all, they deliver if you’re feeling lazy.
Abil Fida lacks any real family seating area, but they charge less if you decide to order take-out instead. The food platters are quite tasty and large and it’s easily one of the best places in the city to find great BBQ. The grilled chicken is always a good choice.
If you tire of traditional U.A.E. food and want to feel like you’re a little closer to home, the Mexican food served at Barbacoa should be your first choice. The food is cooked right in front of you and the tacos pack quite a punch. You’ll get quite a big meal for just a few bucks here.
Lebanese Mill is a local favorite that serves traditional Lebanese food like fresh hummus, garlic yogurt grill and delectable shawarma. They stuff you full of free appetizers when you arrive so take it easy until the real meal comes. The lamb is always perfectly cooked here.

I lived in San Francisco during college so coming to visit the city and see all the changes was exciting. The Hotel Zeppelin was built in a once slightly shabby area that has since come alive with new hotels and restaurants for travelers looking for something different. We arrived at noon on a Friday afternoon and were immediately greeted by the hotel staff at the front desk. They were able to accommodate an early check-in, completed in just a few minutes. The lobby is as hip as the hotel name sounds, but it also offered a cozy atmosphere, with a roaring fire and comfy couches and chairs in the lounge area. Unique wall art, statues and lighting remind you of the cool factor.
There are few things as adult-ish as a well-designed living space. When you stop strewing your Ikea coffee table with old magazines and straw wrappers, and start creating a “lewk” that’s more your style, it’s time to invest in a coffee table book. Sometimes pricey, these are not the tomes you curl up with in your cozy chair. They’re often hefty, artistic and fun and, if chosen correctly, a true representation of your own sense of style and interests.
ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
