Most loved dining spots in Dubai, picked by you!

I’ve been blogging for about 2 years now. Needless to say, I’ve visited over 600 restaurants in Dubai and posted about most of them on my Instagram. Since then, several bloggers have emerged, marketed and promoted as many!

I was genuinely curious to know which restaurants amongst 1000’s in Dubai, really made the cut (either via bloggers, the media or organically)?! Thus, I asked my followers to help me out and let me know THEIR favorites! I easily received over 500 responses, below are all of them 🙂

PS: This isn’t an analytical blog post and has no motive. The only intention behind this was to make myself aware of the restaurants that are actually picking up and I wanted to share the same with you guys (most of you asked me to share this post upon completion as well, I’m glad you guys were as interested as I was, so here goes ??)! In total, there are 80 restaurants, thus, I’ve not embedded any pictures.
*’Favorite’ restaurants given by owners themselves have not been included for obvious reasons.

The best part about this exercise was, a lot of people mentioned the same restaurant name! 🙂 I myself haven’t visited these, so I’m definitely going to check them out!
