There were some nice stores inside, a lot of western retail outlets and the food court had your typical fast food fare as well. Notables included McDonald's, KFC, and Baskin Robbins. Being in the Middle East, there was a variety of places serving Lebanese and Indian cuisine. Let's get onto the pictures shall we?
Here we have Manar Mall...at night...welcome to RAK!

McDonald's truly dominates the globe. Here it is...smiles were free, as always:

Here's my plate of Lebanese...salad, chicken, flatbread, kababs, tabbouleh, and tahini.
We never did get the chance to try it, but here we have the almighty KING OF BALLS!
Are you full now? Let's hit up Carrefour and see what we can find:
Looks like Lay's potato chips dominates the UAE market:
Hey, not only do Asians love Hello Kitty, but so do residents of RAK:
I hope you enjoyed your visit to the premier destination of choice in RAK, Manar Mall. Ta-ta!
