Camel and Chips on the Menu in Dubai

Dubai, UAE : 24 May 2010

Following fast on the feet of its Saudi neighbours, Dubai food outlet Local House is offering customers the chance to sample camel burgers as a ‘fat-free option’ for those of us who can’t say no to a burger but need to watch our waistlines. 

Camel burgers came onto the menu in Saudi Arabia last year, a country which has long associated the camel with proud nomadic traditions.

The general manager of Dubai restaurant Local House said the idea for the restaurant had come from his Emirati boss who had been raised on camel milk and meat.  The meat can be quite tough to chew but the outlet wouldn’t say how they get it tender, describing the process as ‘a trade secret.’ 

Initial reviews on the burgers seem positive, but if you don’t fancy your chances chewing on a camel there are a myriad of other options on the Local House menu, including camel soup and camel milkshake.  And for the really adventurous there is the choice of camel cooked in oyster sauce.

The restaurant hopes to open another outlet in the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, in Dubai with a view to expanding sales of camel burger throughout the UAE.
