With Abu Dhabi being oil sheik country, I expected my stay to be somewhat pricey. A quick glance at the hotel restaurant’s menu confirmed that and had me crunching numbers.
Fortunately a stroll through the neighborhood revealed that even in Abu Dhabi there is street food. A local bakery produces some cheese filled pide bread in their tandoori style oven and with 3 Dh a fix it costs less than a tenth of what the hotel charges for a basic meal. Yummy!
After a good lunch nap I went to see one of the city’s main attractions, the grand mosque. It is the eight largest in the world and it sure does that fact justice.
