Joining the food truck fever at Eat the World DXB?
Roaming restaurants from the US, UK and Singapore return to Downtown Dubai for 2017 as part Dubai Food Festival.
From delicious desserts to the all-mighty Burg-Khalifa burger, here’s a run down of street food treats that you can’t miss:
Where? Cheeky Italian
What? Ditch the diet for breaded buttermilk-fried chicken thigh, oozing with mozzarella, marinara sauce and crunchy pickles, piled on a soft Italian flatbread. It’s a ‘festa’ in your mouth and no-one else is invited.
Truffle Parmesan Fries
Where? The Cheese Truck
What? While they might be renowned for their grilled cheese and onion toasties (FYI, this year they’re serving up a creamy burrata number with peaches and pistachio), you’ll definitely want to add a side of VIP fries to your order. Cheese + truffle = win.
Where? Crabbie Shack
What? Love prawns? Love burgers? You’ll certainly be chuffed that the lovely people at Crabbie Shack have paired up crustaceans and cow, for a treat that’s too good to share.
Lord Rupert Brisket
Where? The Bell & Brisket
What? Voted the eight best dish in London by the capital’s food gurus, this blend of beef brisket, pickled cabbage, Dijon mayo, melted cheddar and gherkins lifts the humble bagel to new levels of OMG.
Chicken Pad Thai Taco
What? The Peached Tortilla
Where: Adjust your tastebuds as Thai noodles are substituted for a soft corn tortilla, filled with marinated chicken, a nutty sauce, green onion and lime. Absolute culinary genius that’s so simple you’ll wonder why you didn’t think of it first.
Strawberry Funnel Cake
Where? Endless Summer Sweets
What? A decadent cross between a doughnut and churros, these classic American desserts are ready to make their Dubai debut. Choose from chocolate and deep-fried Oreo, or opt for the original, because it comes topped with fresh strawberries.
Where? The Roadery
What? British chefs buy into the Dubai hype to create this whopper of a burger that comes stacked with five storeys of beef patty and truffle cheese, plus a few other secret ingredients that we can’t wait to mull over.
Where? Kway Guan Huat Joo Chiat Popiah
What? Singaporean kerb food that scores high for health and taste. A fresh spring roll that’s not fried, it combines sweet and savoury flavours with ton of veg to keep you coming back for more.
