Dubai, one of the jewels of United Arab Emirates, is one of the richest cities in the world. The location of the planet's most expensive and luxurious hotels, just walking along its streets will give you the idea of elegance the city has.

It's also a popular tourist destination, but many are intimidated by the city's affordability. Looking where to eat, of course, is a challenge to anyone opting for budget-friendly spots and not extremely expensive restaurants. Cheer up, there are still a lot to choose from. Here are some of the best affordable dining spots in Dubai that wouldn't hurt your wallet:

Betawi Restaurant. Venture in the streets of Karama and you'll see Betawi restaurant right next to Yalla Momos. This resto specializes in Southeast Asian cuisine, mostly Indonesian- and you'll sigh with contentment with the generous portion of each serving of their food. For under $20 per person, this is a very good deal.

Calicut Paragon. Have you ever tried Keralan cuisine? If not, then Calicut Paragon is the best place to try it out. Do not be daunted on the unfamiliar food choices in their menu, you can ask the waiter what their specialties are and chances are you won't regret it. The savory, flavorful dishes they have makes this place such a hit in Dubai, and most usually you'll see a queue outside Paragon's doors-a testament to their quality.

Al Dimyati & Iskandaron. You would be surprised that for an Arabic food spot, their meat dishes are to die for. Their lamb chops are what makes customers come back, as well other dishes in their menu too. The place looks like a cafeteria, but hey, once you try their food you'll feel like you're in a top-class restaurant. Just bring 8-15 dollars and you're good to go.

The Chalet. Jumeirah Beach Road in Dubai is a fantastic place to hang out, and if you're looking for a laid-back restaurant to eat dinner with your friends with quality food and great affordability, then visit The Chalet. The diversity of their menu is impressive, with the biryani being their specialty. Relax and have a good time with an awesome view, only in The Chalet.

Special Ostadi. Located in Al Mussall Road, Khalid Bin Al Waleed, Bur Dubai, you don't actually need a map to find this place. It's a popular dining spot among locals because of the excellent dining experience Special Ostadi always makes for every one of their guests. They specialize in Persian and Arabic cuisine, and with the quality of their food you'll thank the heavens for their affordability.
