Saudi Jidawwi resturant in Dubai مطعم مطبق و معصوب السعودي في دبي


I just read that there’s a Saudi Jiddawi restaurant in Dubai, owned and run by Saudi ladies. The place serves authentic Jidawwi dishes like Mu6abbag, Kabsa, and other things. I’m not sure if their Mu6abbag is the same as our Kuwait one. In fact, I’m pretty sure it’s something entirely different. But it’s got to be an important dish, because they have more than a dozen varieties of it.


The Restaurant is called Mutabbag O Masoub, and is located on Jumeirah Rd. in Um Suqqaim. Their phone number is 04 3282444, and their exact location is beside London Hospital and behind the Iranian restaurant.

No more Jumeirah Sceirah at Wild Wadi?


When did this happen? I never liked the Jumeirah Scairah much, and took a few embarrassing years to finally ride it, but I’m still sad to see it go.

It was such an amazing and exhilarating ride, that holds some dear precious memories. It’s such an important part of Wild Wadi, that I don’t think the park could be the same without it.

Does anyone know what they replaced it with? I assume with something even scarier.

Nutella Choco Injections إبر ككاو النوتيلا

Dubai Municipality has officially warned Emiratis about Nutella Chocolate injections. The injections are bogus, aren’t really made by Nutella, and real sterile medical injections are used in them. It sited health and hygiene reasons behind the warning, and is currently looking for the suppliers and sellers of these dangerous choco needles.

أصدرت السلطات الحكومية في دبي، بدولة الإمارات العربية المتحدة، تحذيراً رسمياً للمستهلكين، بعدم شراء الشوكولاتة المعبأة في سرنجات «حقن طبية»، بعد تداول صور لأنواع من الشوكولاتة على شكل حقن بين سكان الإمارة، عبر «البلاك بيري» والهواتف الذكية، ومواقع التواصل الاجتماعي. وقال رئيس شعبة الرقابة الغذائية في بلدية دبي: إن البلدية تعمل بالتعاون مع وزارتي الصحة والبيئة، لاتحاذ الإجراءات اللازمة بهذا الشأن.

وتُظهر الصور، التي تم تداولها على نطاق واسع، مجموعة من الحقن مملوءة بمسحوق شوكولاتة، وعليها العلامة التجارية الخاصة بماركة «نوتيلا».

فيما أصدر مكتب الشركة المنتجة في الشرق الأوسط، بياناً صحافياً نفى فيه علاقتهم بهذا المنتج.

وكانت تقارير إعلامية محلية قد نشرت منذ عام تقريباً، بعض الصور التي تتعلق بإعلان مشابه، تم نشره عبر موقع محلي للتسوق عبر الإنترنت.

إلا أن ما فجر الموضوع من جديد، هو الإعلان الذي نشر في أحد مواقع التسوق الإماراتية، في منتصف يونيو الجاري، يدعو فيه المستهلكين لشراء «جرعات» شوكولاتة مقابل 10 دراهم. وفق CNN العربية.
