Had to eat my #fatayer this way because it was way too long ? This place is sort of a hidden gem , I was really amazed with the wholesome food, one of their top selling good is this muhammara and cheese fatayer. I really loved this place because in the end we go to a restaurant for food and service. They put the customer first and that's when you do they are doing it right because they are going back to basics. Fact : A lot of restaurants in #mydubai don't give water for free but @mamaeshme do! Love that this concept is being streamlined in Dubai more. After all, water is basic and a must ! I would say good enough for one but can even be shared between two depending on your appetites. They even have @entertainergcc offers. You won't even believe between two people we only paid AED 9 each ??? Love how much you can save on @theentertainerme
