Frying Pan Adventures is the brainchild of two sisters, Arva and Farida Ahmed. We grew up in Dubai during the 80s and made a commitment to preserve the foods, stories and community feel of a city that has witnessed incredible change through our lifetime. Our team of longtime locals loves exploring, researching and storytelling as much as we do eating—and we’re always hungry for new ways to rediscover the city we call home.
Our 3 to 4 hour walking food tours and custom-tailored food events in Old Dubai are a favourite not only with discerning visitors to Dubai but also to many residents, both old and new. We have curated our tours for people whose curiosity and open-mindedness leads them through doors that most tourists and even resident expats may not open.
