Yalla Eat! (Arabic for Let’s go eat!) is an immersive culinary experience offered by the Arab American National Museum (AANM).
Through guided walking tours of Dearborn’s Warren Avenue and Michigan Avenue, participants learn the story of Arab Americans in metro Detroit, including the history of Arab merchants on East Dearborn’s busy commercial strips.
On the Yalla Eat! tours, guests will meet both small and large business owners eager to share the story of their family-run enterprises and savor the sights, sounds and delicious scents at bakeries, nut and coffee houses and fresh produce markets. Traditional Arabic hospitality is on full display, as generous samples are offered along with the stories of individuals, their families and their history.
