We’ll have what he’s having…

His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai is well-known for his love of Dubai’s restaurant scene. He was spotted at L’Amo Bistro Del Mare at Dubai Harbour at the start of May and over the past ten days, the Crown Prince visited two other hotspots in the city.


Sheikh Hamdan was spotted dining with friends and family at the slick Japanese-Peruvian hotspot at Clay at Bluewaters Island on May 23.

The Crown Prince, affectionately known as Fazza, was snapped dining indoors with his troop amongst the Japanese and Peruvian inspired interiors.

The restaurant posted a photo of Fazza on its Instagram page with the caption ‘We are honoured and privileged to have HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum visit us. We hope and look forward to having him back another day.’

If you want to dine at the Sheikh Hamdan approved restaurant, you will tuck into ‘Nikkei’ cuisine. Nikkei is the name of the group of Japanese people who settled in Peru over one hundred years ago. The dishes combine flavours and inspiration from both cultures.

La Maison Ani

Sheikh Hamdan was snapped up at La Maison Ani at Fashion Avenue in Dubai Mall earlier this week on May 30.
