Kosher In Dubai And Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
« on: November 30, 2020, 08:30:37 PM »
Anyone want to start a master list of hotels that can provide kosher food?

I'm going this week IY"H and i will try and get as much info for an updated trip report and tips

See below a list i've received. I don't yet know what the "Kosher-ready" means but hopefully this will be somewhat helpful

The kosher restaurant is in the Armani hotel (Burj Khalifa)

There is a Kosher program by Aryeh Wagner at the Habtoor Palace from Dec 20 to Jan 7 http://starguest.com/kosher-hotel-in-dubai/

A bit OT but Israel is likely to redefine UAE as Red, mandating a quarantine period for anybody who returns from there, which may slow some things down


I would imagine fear of Iranian sponsored Terrorism is playing a part in this

The menu and pricing seems to be much better if ordering directly from the caterer.
Question is getting stuff up

Hashgocha: Rabbi Duchman/Chabad/Emirates Agency for Kosher Certification (EAKC)

FTFE!!!

Chabad does not give kosher certification in the name of Chabad.

Rabbi Duchman, who happens to be a Chabad Rabbi in the UAE gives his own certification.

Please do not imply that Chabad gives kosher certification.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Spending December in Dubai and decided to do the same I did in Cyprus for the past month and a half - self-catering. Of course its not the best solution for a family coming on vacation that doesnt want to bother with cooking. Other than grape juice and milk (you can bring 5 bottles of wine in and they also sell here) there is everything you might need in stores like Carrefour Hypermarket. There is a small selection of items carrying OU and such, but what comes very handy is to have the European kosher lists that explain items and details such as factory codes (I rely on Paris and Zurich) as many items are manufactured there. There is kosher chicken available as well. I really dont feel like Im missing anything. Im not sure if cholov Stam milk is available, perhaps some UHT is, but other cholov stam items are readily available as well.

Be careful to make sure the "Chalav Stam" doesn't have any camel milk mixed in.

Right, hence the mention of UHT, I doubt they would import fresh milk.

Very likely there is imported European milk. Dubai is a spoiled expat hub.
