Celebrating Thanksgiving in Dubai with friends

Things are getting festive as we’re quickly approaching the holiday season. We’re here to share with you some of the best Thanksgiving events in Dubai and ways to celebrate while you’re away from home. 

Dining out right this holiday 

Exploring different cultures and traditions is a great way to indulge yourself in the rich history of a new location. As we know Thanksgiving is all about the food, but so why not try something new this year with some fantastic local cuisine straight from Dubai’s best heritage restaurants? Here are our top restaurant recommendations this November…

  • Enjoy views of the Dubai Fountain on Burj Khalifa Lake while dining and immersing yourself in authentic Emirati cuisine at Siraj Restaurant.
  • Experience Emirati cuisine in Dubai’s historic Al Fahidi district, Arabian Tea House offers a peaceful escape from hectic city life with its skylight-roofed dining area.
  • Al Fanar Restaurant is the place to find traditional Emirati dishes in a setting designed to immerse you into a time when Dubai was just a small desert village.

Amazing food is better enjoyed with friends. Meet people in Dubai to share incredible dining experiences on the ASKWHO foodies group.

A dinner party for all

You may have heard of bringing your own dish night, but have you heard of Bring Your Own Board night? Get everyone involved and create an evening to remember when your guests make their own board to bring along to your Thanksgiving party. Let’s look at some inspiration for your BYOB night… 

Turkey board: You can’t have Thanksgiving without some turkey. Create your own meat selection board full of your favourites to share at the table. 

Classic charcuterie board:  Mix various kinds of cheese, olives and nuts, fruit and crackers, or small slices of bread to make a colourful board your guests will love. 

Roast veggies board: Combine your top roast vegetable picks for a platter board that everyone can enjoy this holiday season. 

Let your guest’s imaginations run wild with more choices such as an All-American board, a dessert board, or even a cocktail board. Find finds in Dubai to invite to any event you throw over on our ASKWHO lifestyle group. 

Celebrating with friends and family

As Thanksgiving is all about coming together, we appreciate that all you really want is to celebrate with the ones you love this holiday season. Take the time to video call your family back at home to share what your thanksgiving looks like, or spend the day with people you care about here in Dubai.

Whatever you get up to this holiday season, we hope it’s a good one.🦃
