Away from the glitz and glam of the city, you'll find a real diamond in the rough - Sultan Dubai Falafel. One of Dubai's best kept secrets in the realm of street food, they offer up some of the freshest, crispiest and tastiest falafel outside of Cairo.
Located in Deira within walking distance from Al Rigga Metro Station, shop prices are so low they're practically giving the stuff away. A no-fuss cafeteria with charming outdoor seating, guests should work up an appetite before heading down in search of this street food paradise. Looking for something with a little more meaty bite? It's no surprise that they also serve up an incredibly popular shawarma sandwich, as well.
Given that the cafeteria's got 'falafel' emblazoned in its name, we'll just go right ahead and say it: these deep-fried bites are the bomb. If you don't live in Deira, you've got to make the trip here just to experience these crispy little pieces of heaven (yes, they're that good!)
We loved chatting with the jovial staff who were super-friendly and passionate about their most popular menu choice; the chef even took out time to explain how his unique falafel machine worked and what made it special. Unfortunately for us, he wouldn't share his killer recipe (we tried and failed, but left oh-so satisfied.)
Given the cafeteria's lively location, parking can be a nightmare. We found ourselves circling the block several times in search of a spot, so we suggest using public transport instead.
It generally isn't considered a place for sit-down meals so don't expect much in terms of seating. While they have a few plastic tables and chairs set up outside, the majority of diners pick up their orders and hit the road.
If you're coming down to Sultan Dubai Falafel for shawarma, take note they only become available after 6pm.
Apart from their famed falafel sandwiches, their fresh juices are also extremely popular. If you're a fan of fruity concoctions, we'd recommend trying their Cocktail Mix.
