Buy absolutely anything on Deira's 27th street

From the Al Khaleej Road junction stroll up 27th Street (going away from the Creek and towards the heart of Deira) where street vendors sell everything from fresh roast chicken and samosas to wigs and bejewelled leather shoes. Last time we were in the neighbourhood we picked up a nifty iPad case, a couple of fresh juices and some T-shirt souvenirs for visitors for less than Dhs100.
