A huge hall contains stall upon stall of fresh fish, as an army of men in blue uniforms rush around boxing, weighing and carving up the day’s catch. While splashing your path past the stalls – this is not a place for flip-flops – expect to see black hammour, koffer, kingfish, safi, shark and plenty of brawny king prawns and people eager to snap up the best bargains.
Best for: Fish! (And a memorable, cultural experience.)
Open daily Sat-Thu 9am-1pm, 4pm-10pm; Fri 4pm-10pm. Opposite Hyatt Regency Dubai & Galleria. Deira.
