Being in Dubai for 6 months now is actually a long time without Mansaf! Its ingredients are not as sophisticated as 'Cordon bleu' but its flavour is more than satisfying.
A few weeks ago I decided to go to the broadway SWAN LAKE show in the famous Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi with some friends, it was a hassle finding tickets but as expected the orchestra & the ballet dancers were worth every Dirham .... & those were many I must say.
Needless to mention that Abu Dhabi has a completely different style than Dubai & is just as beautiful.
After the show has ended, we were heading back to Dubai in the foggy weather- from humidity not from normal fog which is awful & needs a post by itself- we found Jabri! I yelled :'YAY JABRI let's go eat Mansaf!' Leila my fellow Jordanian friend, roommate & work colleague looked at me & said: 'oh my God Lara' .
How did she expect me to resist that yellow sign? (The chefs & owner are Egyptian ma ikhtalafna bas bardo it's still Mansaf!) To make a long story short we ate Mansaf at 12.00 in the morning & it was great :) Of course naheeka 3an inno lazem to share nuktet il Mansaf everytime I eat it.
What a weird combination of events, mansaf & ballet!
Lesson of the day:
You don't know the value of Mansaf............YOU DON'T!
