Default 24 Hours Places. Food Delivery, Stores, etc.

Ok, so a few times leaving some of the bars at Medinat Jumeira i felt like I wanted to go somewhere for a 3 am burger or hot dog or whatever people eat under the influence of much booze.

My question is, where? I havent found any places.

Also brings other questions to mind such as, are there 24 hour stores / pharmacies that sell everyday items?

What about food delivery places? Is there such a thing as a 4 am Subway? LOL.

I know its asking a lot, but I refuse to believe there arent these things. Heck, in Chicago Ive gotten home and ordered a nice big pizza for my friends and I at 5 am.

I think you can order Burger King/Subway/KFC/any fast food place connected to a gas station 24 hours, you can also get the taxi driver to make a detour past one on your way home too.

There's a couple of 24 hour convenience stores in the Marina area.

Subway I do believe is open 24/7.

The KFC/Burger King/Pizza Hut/Hardees/etc?? they use the same 800 call in center (you will know as they will have your info when you call them and you have never called before to their 800 number directly ) all seem to close at like 2 or 3am.

There is a mall style chinese that is 24/7 open on the marina walk but only deliver until ?? like 2 or 3. I am not home so do not have the book marks.

Funnily enough, when it comes to getting late night burgers, taxi drivers know exactly where to take you. No shouting or grand detours involved.
Considering that there is a huge 'no eating/drinking' sticker in most taxis, I wonder if this rule does not apply at 4am (never met a taxi driver that has said anything to me or my friends for eating in the taxi)!

Is it safe to ask a taxi driver to take you at 4 am? See in Mexico, you could never do this... there is a good 15-20% chance if youre asking where to go, he knows youre a tourist and ends up robbing you in some dark alley... no wallet, no burger and now, no way to get home.

This is not Mexico & it's not the US. You cannot expect Dubai to be just like home.

Dubai is a very safe city, no matter the time of day, Muggings are incredibly rare and the chances of a Western chap being attacked are so slim as to be irrelevant (unless you get into a drunken brawl).

There are plenty of places open until the small hours, just not so many in new Dubai. Again, just because you can order a pizza at 5.00am in Chicago, doesn't mean you ought to be able to do so here. You'll find shwarma shops at that time though, as well as a few fast food places.
