Arabic coffee.....err Arabic juice, anyone?





We've been to Al Ain Mall last Tuesday, the 7th day of Ramadan, just right after the Iftar and dined in at Ponderosa Steak House and Caravan Restaurant. We truly enjoyed the grand buffet which cater Arabic and Oriental food for a price of AED 49/pax excluding tea or coffee.

Right after the dinner, everyone wanted to drink a cup of tea but it will cost an extra hundred dirham if we will have it inside the restaurant. We decided to have it at the food court after I paid the bill. We were heading towards the mall's food court when I saw this man with a big Arabic tea pot on his back and I thought of having a cup of tea for free! I asked for 5 cups of it and gave the first cup to Ghet while I was waiting for the next cup for myself. I was about to take the next cup when Ghet asked me if it was a real Arabic tea which prompted me to ask the man. Oh my! It was an Arabic juice!

Word of the day: a'seer or asir is the Arabic word for juice. Salaam!
