Mina Fish Market.
If you're an Abu Dhabi old-timer, you probably know about this place but I would still consider it a Hidden Gem and possibly a salary saver too!
Wanting a lazy Saturday evening, I stopped by the Fish Market in Mina tonight to pick up fish and have it grilled for me (less dishes!) The gentleman working the store suggested which fish I should buy from the market - sea bream (12 AED) - and I brought it back for it to be grilled.
They asked which spice level I wanted and it came back to me around 10mins later, perfectly grilled and seasoned. There are no seats to eat at the market but I happily took it home to eat so I could cook the sides myself 🙂I've saved the other half for tomorrow's lunch so it was a cheap 2 meals! Cooked vegetables and rice are available also.
If you haven't gone before, take a trip down to the fish market to find some of the freshest fish in the city!
