Jumeirah Fishermen harbor - our charming neigbourood

Yesterday I finally made it to the new Jumeirah Fishing Harbor. This lovely fishermen harbor is actually part of a project commenced in mid-2008, the development of three harbours — Jumeirah 1, Umm Suqeim 1 and Umm Suqeim 2, with the aimed to bring back the fishermen to a more centrally located fish markets, reviving traditional fishing heritage, improving the life of fishermen and creating a new neighborhood retail outlets with cafés restaurants and cafes, majlis, prayer halls and recreational facilities.

I look forward to try out the newly open cafés and restaurants inside Al Souq and more down the jetty facing the waterfront. Here's a little selection of what's on offer…

Bait Misk Lebanese Restaurant serves a selection of mezzeh and authentic of Lebanese food inside the Al Souq complex. Decor looked cosy mainly in wood and stone with a rustic feel and a see view over the harbor.

Boteko Brasil brings to Dubai traditional Brazilian treats. Cute little café, serving homemade variety of pot pies, hot savouries, sandwiches, sweets, candy, cakes, chocolate, juices and delicious coffee in a pure Brazilian Café menu. Down by the jetty facing the waterfront.

Mint Leaf inside Al Souq this bright and elegant well decorated Indian restaurant look very attractive. The menu is also appealing, offering a classic selection of Indian dishes. Look forward to try it out.

Omnia Gourmet Launched by Dubai "celebrity Chef" Silvena Rowe. This adorable looking café-deli is another favorite on my list to try out. The concept is farm-fresh, healthy food with local organic ingredients. After looking at the menu, I have no doubt this cute neighborhood deli café will be a success. I look forward to try Silvena "super healthy" food with "super ingredients" like Chia Seeds, Acai powder, Hemp Seeds, Pomegranate, Goji… but also decadent desert (still healthy).

Also on the jetty Charm offers Thai cuisine and Sea More Café is quint coffee shop with small food selection.

The fish market itself will be a reason to visit the harbor. Soon fully operating.
