If you ever find yourself in Dubai, rest assured you will not be far from some of your favorite American fast food chains. At Dubai Mall alone I was surprised by the choices:
It goes without saying, and we have reviewed earlier, that McDonald’s (and Burger King) are all over.
Pizza Hut, with a really cool Arabic logo.
Baja Fresh??? Whaa??? This was a total surprise to find in Dubai. I would’ve expected Chipotle or even Taco Bell before this. And here’s my burrito from BF:
Ahh, Mexican. I was in withdrawl. And look what else they were serving at Baja Fresh:
I was very surprised to see this American Mall staple here at a Middle Eastern mall. No Hot Dog On A Stick girls though.
This one was also a surprise. Look closely at the logo. Look familiar? Perhaps a little like this one?
Yeah, my guess is the word “church” has little meaning in a Muslim country. Clever. And can you tell what this one is?
I think this logo for Subway is cool because they retained the S-arrow in the logo.
Too funny. It’s like – pick the most specialized chains in the U.S. and throw them over here. I’m really shocked at this rate there was no Five Guys or In-n-Out.
Finally, one that wasn’t in Dubai, but rather Qatar. I love the ampersand in the middle of the Arabic letters. Cool.
