Dish By Dish

Countries like the United Arab Emirates (UAE) are major international hubs with residents hailing from all over the world. Of course, in them we find the traditional foods of Eastern Arabia (known as "Khaleeji" cooking), but there are also many different global food cultures and interesting fusions on offer. Working with a growing collection of restaurant menus from the UAE and the larger Arab Gulf countries, we are transcribing them–dish by dish–in order to study what they can tell us about food and culture in the region. In these menus you will find many languages; they typically contain English and Arabic, but be on the lookout for Amharic, Chinese, Malayalam, Tagalog, Urdu and others. Folders have been created indicating what language skills you need to transcribe. Dish by Dish is a project of Citizen Researcher in the Office of Research Outreach at NYU Abu Dhabi. To find out more about the collection of menus and the data we are building based on them, visit our project website linked at the top of this page.
