  • Friday Morning Breakfast Jaunts: Explore how various residents get their morning fix over a different sort of Dubai brunch.
  • Comparative Cultures: Discover unexpected links and surprising similarities between cuisines from different parts of the world.
  • Interactive Cooking Demos: Learn to make specialty dishes using time tested techniques from passionate home cooks and professional chefs.
  • Adventures Beyond Dubai: Venture beyond Dubai to discover food, culture and stories across the other Emirates.
  • Uncharted Routes: Uncover the history, flavours and stories of lesser known cuisines and local neighbourhoods.
  • Taste Battles: Lend us your expert taste buds and help us suss out the “Best of ...” in our definitive gastronomic taste-offs.

September to May; 3-4 experiences per month; timings vary based on experience.

Experiences starting at AED 200.00 per person; discounts of AED 100.00+ for Sufra members.

Group sizes vary based on the experience; an average group size of 10 to 15 people.

Have questions? Here are the most frequently asked.

Here’s how, and if any one or more of these distinguishing features resonate with you, then you’re our perfect Sufra guest:

  • Stronger community focus – You’re eager to connect with other intellectually curious members of our community, over a common passion for food, culture and exploration.
  • More dynamic and collaborative – You’d rather be involved in discussions moderated by a Sufra host, rather than being “guided on a tour;” you leave the event knowing that the dialogues you had within the group added richness to the experience.
  • More fringe discoveries – You already know the not-so-secret “hidden gems” in the city; you’re looking to access those cultures, conversations and experiences that are rarely on the mainstream radar. They’re either reserved to a few cultural circles or are often discovered only by people with special insider access, e.g. journalists.
  • Less formal, more fluid – You simply want to have a fun, not overly planned outing with like-minded people who love food!
  • Friday Morning Breakfast Jaunts: Explore how various residents get their morning fix over a different sort of Dubai brunch.
  • Comparative Cultures: Learn about unexpected links and surprising similarities between cuisines from different parts of the world.
  • Interactive Cooking Demonstrations: Learn to make some new and old favourites using time tested techniques from passionate home cooks and professional chefs.
  • Adventures Beyond Dubai: Get away from the city and embark on a day-long trip to discover food, culture and stories across the other Emirates.
  • Uncharted Routes: Uncover the history, flavours and stories of lesser known cuisines and local neighbourhoods.
  • Taste Battles: Lend us your expert taste buds and help us suss out the “Best of ..” in our definitive gastronomic taste-offs.
