It’s one of our faves, too!

You couldn’t ask for a better review than having the Crown Prince of Dubai visit your restaurant – not once, but twice.

And BB Social Dining can now count HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum among their repeat customers.

The royal popped into the stylish DIFC restaurant for lunch over the weekend, and posed for a cute photo with BB co-founder Shabnum Stumpf and her daughter.

According to Stumpf, HH Sheikh Maktoum (Sheikh Hamdan’s brother) had also dined at the restaurant the day before, and sent the menu to his brother to entice him to go over the weekend. Talk about great word of mouth!

Stumpf said the royal also happily posed for photos with some of the other guests in the restaurant who were having lunch.

The royal also visited the restaurant in February, not long after it opened. On that occasion, he shared snaps of the food to his Instagram Stories – including the BB bao, cauliflower popcorn, crispy sprouts, and edamame hummus. Yum.
