Diner eats at Tranzeet The newest eatery at DXB has all sorts of classic American comfort food on the menu, including big stacks of fluffy pancakes (see right). Tranzeet is inspired by vintage US diners, and that’s reflected in everything from the menu to the charming interior design. Whether you’re looking to eat breakfast at 5pm or dine on a big fat fried chicken burger at 2am (we’d never judge), you’ll find it on the 24-hour menu. And you can take a seat and eat in or just grab something to take with you on-board. You’re sorted. Near Gate B7, Terminal 3
