A Short Review of the Food Festival 2019:
Eat Cheap in Dubai
A common misconception is that in Dubai only luxury can be seen and that the culture is less and less visible. But in Dubai in particular so many nationalities and cultures come together as in a few other countries. This is not least due to Dubai's location as an international hub and to the many immigrants who have found work in Dubai. This mixture of different cultures is also noticeable in Dubai's selection of food and restaurants. Here you benefit from an enormous variety and creativity in the food on offer. To enjoy international delicacies, you don't have to go to a star restaurant. Many street food markets in Dubai also offer delicious dishes with great quality and freshness. In addition, the dishes here are often cooked in an original way, just as you can enjoy them on the streets of these very countries.
The food trucks and open street kitchens invite you to get to know various eating cultures from all over the world. The creative food trucks especially, which are known for example from the streets of New York, create an urban atmosphere and invite you to stay and taste.
In addition to creative dishes, street food also stands for organic and sustainably produced food. The street food cuisine in Dubai meets the urban need for healthy yet fast and uncomplicated food. Whether it's sushi, burgers, tacos, curries, vegan dishes or cupcakes and other desserts – at the street food markets in Dubai you will find lots of delicacies to spoil your palate.
