Calling all dessert lovers! You know those fried dough balls, legemat, you see Emirati women deep-frying at Global Village? You can try a wide variety – even a Nutella-filled one – until October 31st at Seven Sands annual Legemat Festival. Read more below!


Mr. T Raf and I love this Emirati sweet. Either ways, yes, they can be sticky if a drop or two of date syrup gets onto your fingers, but they are absolutely divine. Soft on the inside, crisp outside, and hot with a sweet glaze.

Seven Sands 4th annual Legemat Festival is back, and residents can head to the Emirati restaurant to try the fried treat dipped in traditional date syrup, with saffron orange, chocolate filled Nutella, nutmeg honey, cardamom and honey sugar, pistachio, balaleet cinnamon, and charcoal – we can’t wait!

Learn more about the sweet dumplings,  at Seven Sands, and try a choice of two flavours for Dhs30. Hurry though, the festival is only on until the end of this month.
