#MadePostcards:  Ever wondered what your fellow creatives get up to on the weekend? Or which are Dubai’s popular design-led events and eateries? In Made Journal’s adhoc series we uncover the best of Dubai, in the eyes of the city’s designers, creatives and makers.

Taking us on our tour of her city this week is printmaker, Salama Nasib, who is exhibiting her latest screen prints at the Made in Tashkeel 2015 exhibition until August 20th.

What is your favourite Dubai neighbourhood and why?

Downtown Dubai – there is something in that area that brings everything alive.

What and where was the best meal you recently had in Dubai?

Maharaja Bhog, which is based in the Karama area and serves pure vegetarian Indian cuisine. All you do is sit there and they start serving you their menu of the day, leaving you with nothing to do but indulge those taste buds in delight.

Where would we find you on a typical Saturday morning?

Working! Usually in my second studio in Abu Dhabi, or sometimes at home working on some freelance jobs.

Your favourite event or place for creatives in the City?

Meet D3 that was launched for the first time last March. It was a nice mixture of creativity in all its forms. Also, Tashkeel as the hub for creatives.

Dubai’s best kept secret?

Special Ostadi Restaurant in Bur Dubai! What else to ask for when you eat delicious Iranian Kebabs, served by friendly owners and staff, in a place decorated with classic old photographs and currencies from all over the world? Authentic.
