    Exiting the Spice Souk

    Take an immediate right here, as soon as you exit through the wooden arch.

    Just ahead, between the two buildings, there’s an entrance to a narrow alley.

    Turn right again when you reach it, then follow the alley.

    Check out a couple of the stores as you walk by. You’ll probably notice large silver pots and serving trays. Emiratis buy these during special occasions, when they need to prepare food for lots of guests. Each night during Ramadan, lamb machboos, tahta samak and plenty of other dishes are served on special platters for the sunset meal, Iftar.

    Continue along the alleyway.
