Many restaurants boast really delicious food, but there are not many places where you can cook a really good meal. Zerofat is a restaurant that boasts that the dishes prepared here are not only tasty, but also have a certain benefit to the body. In particular, you should try oatmeal porridge with fresh berries or tacos with shrimp.

Desert Safari & Beduin Camp
