Don’t miss yummy camel burger’ reads the sign outside Dubai’s Local House restaurant. Camel meat is eaten throughout the Gulf, but this restaurant targets visitors who may never have bitten into this edible form of desert transport.
The restaurant also offers a camel curry dish, grilled camel ribs and the camel special, which is cooked in oyster sauce. Camel sausage, bacon and pizza. “Most of our guests are tourists from different parts of the world,” says Ramesh, a 44-year-old Indian national who has managed the restaurant since it opened in 2004.
"Camelicious" brand camel milk, milk chocolates and milkshakes made with camel milk are some of the other offerings.
