LATEST SCRUMPDIDDLYIUMPTIOUS UPDATES! [as of May 2012]
- I’ve gotten through the interview to apply for a tour license, and I’ll be sitting through the course for the license in July (yes. convoluted process. interview -> course -> yayomglicense!)
- If everything glides ahead like butter, I’ll launch in October 2012. 4 months to go!
- With the wise advice of my friends, readers and the twitterati of Dubai, I’ve christened the tours: Frying Pan Food Adventures.
- All my updates are through twitter [@fryingpantours] and on my spanking new facebook page – click it, like it, LOVE IT. Cuddle it.
Resident Foodies, and Visiting Foodies, I’ve been toying with idea of starting food tours in parts of Old Dubai. The idea would basically involve my taking you on an evening walking tour of some of the best or most unique places to eat at in a chosen area of Old Dubai. You would get to sample ethnic fare that Dubai trade and tourism has grown up on, far away from the glitzy restaurants of New Dubai (many of which are undoubtedly also very good…but the character and tradition of old / ethnic joints is not to be missed!).
I’m still thinking through the idea [legalities, which restaurants, the cost of the tour per person, and all that jazz], but if you’d be interested in signing up for such a tour at some point, do let me know by dropping me a comment here or on my tour facebook page!
