You know you’re coming back before you leave. Another small, hard-to-find space in JLT with less than 20 seats and a line out the door. San Wan Hand Pulled Noodles sells more than just that, but it’s the reason you should come. Get the traditional biang biang noodles (with gamey beef) laced with a generous splash of their homemade cumin chilli oil, the homemade spicy wontons in black vinegar and the cooling-but-spiked chilli cucumber salad. Prices are reasonable. Be prepared to wait for a table.

World beating Peking duck - is this the best bargain in Dubai? Venture into the China sector of International City and you’ll be rewarded with one of the best Peking ducks you’ll ever eat at Quanjude. It might just be the best Peking duck we’ve tasted - anywhere! Don’t expect the typical Dubai interiors - there’s no DJ, no dry ice and frankly, we’re surprised our chair held through the meal - but there’s no typical Dubai price tag either. A whole duck will set you back the princely sum of 118dhs…doesn’t get more authentic than this.
