Shahab: IT Project Manager

Video highlights from Emirates Be There

As the son of a diplomat, Shahab is no stranger to being exposed to different countries and cultures.  The UAE national (Emirati) grew up in South Korea and attended college in the States before returning to Dubai for good. 


Wherever he has lived around the world, what has never failed to comfort Shahab is his Mum’s excellent cooking. He has a passion for food, especially for big, hearty, homely dishes, cooked the way the locals like it. Combining a love for food and travel, Shahab is on a quest to discover the best food in the world, particularly its street food and local restaurants.


To Shahab, food is the universal language. When people gather around a table to share great food, good conversation is sure to follow - even when your company doesn’t speak the same language.
