The Crown Prince of Dubai was snapped enjoying dinner on Christmas Day and Boxing Day…

We do love it when one of Dubai’s many restaurants gets the royal seal of approval and, over the weekend, two eateries received a visit from H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai.

The Crown Prince, affectionately known as Fazza, was spotted dining at brand new Downtown Dubai restaurant CZN Burak on its launch day, December 25, which just so happened to be Christmas Day.

The Turkish-Middle Eastern restaurant is owned by its namesake, celebrity Chef CZN Burak, who has amassed a huge following on Tik Tok and Instagram (on which he boasts 18 million followers) for his culinary videos.

CZN Burak Dubai can be found at Boulevard Point in Downtown Dubai. This is the fourth restaurant for CZN Burak, who already owns three in Turkey. The chef himself cooked for Sheikh Hamdan on December 25.

The opening of CZN Burak was certainly celebrated in a big way. An image of Chef CZN Burak was beamed upon the Burj Khalifa over the weekend, stating ‘welcome to Dubai’ and the restaurant opening date.

On December 26, Boxing Day, Sheikh Hamdan was spotted out and about again, this time dining at popular greek restaurant Avli by Tashas. It’s not the first time the Crown Price has visited this stunning DIFC restaurant – he’s been on numerous other occasions.

The restaurant is inspired by Athens and the rustic courtyards of the Mediterranean. If you’re dining here, expect expertly crafted dishes such as authentic meze, salads, vegan delicacies, seafood and slow-cooked meats.

We wonder where Sheikh Hamdan will head to next…
