TASTE OF DUBAI: FOODIES DELIGHT
I had never visited the Taste of Dubai food festival before, and I was not going to make that mistake again! So on Saturday (which happened to be the last day) I ventured out at noon. Luckily not too many people so got to meet a lot of the Chefs (setting up for future Chef Talk interviews), tried some wonderful food (thankfully they were small portions), learned about new dishes from different parts of the world and basically met some wonderful people along the way.
Here is my journey of the sights and tastes at the Taste of Dubai event:
Crepes with Nutella – whats not to love
From Bread Street Kitchen Dubai
An old English fav – Shepherd’s Pie
From (soon to be launched, in the near distant future) Muchachas
Tacos with seabass
Mexican Corn on the Cob
The totally rad Muchachas team
Tacos with flank steak
From Royal Orchid
Its a skewered life for these chicken satays
Crispy calamari with Asian spice crumbs
From Vivaldi by Alfredo Russo (Sheraton Dubai Creek)
Polpo con patate, pomodorini e capperi or simply put Octopus with cherry tomatoes, potaoes and capers
When you come face to face with the man himself – Alfredo Russo
Parmigiana di melanzane or more understandably Parmigiana of eggplant with Parmesan, tomatoes and fresh basil
Stir fry… its a noodle world out there at
From The Croft
Pulled Ox cheek in Yorkshire pudding, potatoes and carrots and some absolutely must have horseradish
Absolutely delicious meringue with a raspberry and Elderflower cream drizzle
From Etihad Airways
This is what a Business Class meal looks like on Etihad – one day, some day!
Nattas – Mouthwatering flaky custard tart of Portugal with Nutella.
From Portugal with Love.. Nattas
Cold chocolate milk Portuguese drink
From Bistro des Arts
Duck gourmet burger, anyone?
From Cafe Rogue
How do you like your steak?
Vada Pav Pan Pizza
And with that I came home to have a perfectly relaxing siesta.
Until next year! Happy Eating Dubai.
