If you haven’t heard the benefits of camel meat yet, which sand dune have you been hiding under? The desert mammal is renowned as a healthy alternative for carnivores, being rich in vitamin C and light on calories. With that in mind, here’s how you can eat the coveted dish in Dubai.

Camel stir fry
Where: The Farm, Al Barari Villas, Emirates Road
For a limited time, The Farm is utilising camel meat in many of their favourite dishes. The sticky Thai stir fry is the best of the bunch, and you’d never know you were eating camel.
Price: AED85

Camel chocolate
Where: Majlis, Dubai Mall
Although a slightly more controversial option, being as the milk has a strong flavour, camel milk is packed full of vitamins and can reduce your risk of colon cancer. Great news for those who want a guilt-free chocolate fix.
Price: Varies
