Do any of the Dubai restaurants offer good double wrapped meals to take with me onwards to Maldives?
Is there anything decent? Also does anyone know which hotel has Chabad minyan and meals for shabbos in July?

As of now Chabad is at the Address Dubai Marina. There is talk of potentially leaving but I don't think anything is decided at this point. \

For takeaway, TreatKosher is probably the cheapest (same non Jewish owner as Juimerah Creekside), while Armani is better quality. Both will double wrap meals from their regular menu...

Thank you! What hashgacha is that place?

And any idea if July might be risky getting minyan/meal at Chabad? And if so any other hotel options? Thanks

Everything in Dubai is under Rabbi Duchman’s EAKC. Their Kashrus policies are copied from the OK.

Eli’s Kosher Kitchen caterer also has OU.

Ellie’s kitchen isn’t under rabbi Duchman.

She is the wife of the president of the other community. They work with South Africa beis din and OU. So is kosher Arabia (Emirates kosher meal provider)

Any award sweet spots for DXB-TLV? Cash rate is a little under 200. AUH–TLV is 12.5k with AC but rather fly out of DXB.
