Damascus in Dubai: Reconnections through Food

Kafteh. Syrian Restaurant in the Diaspora, Aroos Damascus in Deira, Dubai retains a semblance of a community with a shattered homeland.

No service staff spoke in English, which in a global Dubai is refreshing as this is an an Arab Muslim City, which is conveniently lost in the Tagalog and Urdu or Malayalam cacophony. Language can resist the overarching objectives of meta globalisation.

The old world Arabic charm was there as in a Turkish House in Muscat.
