Why our clients love us...

“We recently organised a social event for some guests we had visiting Dubai for a conference, and we wanted something a little different to do in the evening. I had heard about Frying Pan Adventures through a friend, and I am so glad I did. We did the Middle East Food Pilgrimage. We had two groups and both Arva and Farida led each tour with such knowledge and passion. We ate the most delicious food and learned about its origins along the way. It was fascinating and a really great opportunity to understand more about Dubai’s multifaceted history and heritage. We have had so many positive comments from our guests about the experience. It was truly memorable. Thank you both so much and I’ve been recommending it to friends since.”

“We had an absolutely wonderful time as a group of 14 with Arva. An excellent intro to the Dubai outside the financial center for our summer interns, and a first even for some of our long time employees. We loved playing Spingo, eating all the snacks, the ride on the Abra, and especially our final meal and discussion, a truly fabulous night! I’ve been taking Arva’s tours since 2014, and they are simply the best.”

Meet Arva

I'm Arva, one of the two founding sisters behind Frying Pan Adventures. Ten years ago, we embarked on a flavorful journey to showcase the soul of Old Dubai through its hidden culinary gems, and it's been a ride full of spices, stories, and shared smiles ever since.
To me, every corner of our historic souks whispers a tale, and every bite of our nostalgic foods is a bridge connecting cultures. I know all too well the hustle of corporate life—the tight schedules and the diversity of characters that make a team so dynamic yet so challenging to unite.
That's why our tours are carefully spiced with engaging activities, authentic flavors, and stories that bring people together, just like a good meal does. Imagine stepping away from the boardroom and into the bustling alleys fragrant with whole spices and incense, where time slows down, and genuine bonds are forged.
So, loosen your tie, take our hand, and let us take the reins on this adventure. After all, breaking bread together is the oldest recipe for camaraderie there is.
Scrumptiously yours,
- Arva Ahmed, Co-founder and Chief Executive Muncher
