Tim Hortons opens in Dubai

The Dubai store is located on Sheikh Zayed Road, the main road that spans the country, and is one block from The Canadian University of Dubai. You can see the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest skyscraper, from the restaurant.

The menu is the same as what you'd find here in the Sault, with a few minor differences. There are no Everything Bagels, because they have poppy seeds on them, which are illegal in the UAE due to the fact they contain opium. The menu also features Zaatar Croissants, a local pastry that is filled with herbs.

Apparently Canadians living in Dubai have been mobbing the restaurant since it opened a couple days ago, with lines out the door, turning it into a meeting place for Canucks. Locals, too, are stopping by to see what all the fuss is about, and apparently the Ice Capps are a big seller.
