It’s my favorite time of the year!!! The Dubai Food Festival 2016 is here!! 🙂 YES!!!!! The Etisalat Beach Canteen is one of the most popular attractions during the food festival and there is no reason to say why, because it’s in a fantastic location, amazing food, great atmosphere, lots of activities and funky music.

Seventeen outlets, mostly home-grown brands, have pop-up dining concepts where you can have a taste of their delicious food offerings! There is a range of food which suits everyone’s taste and what I love about it most is that you can just eat your way around the canteens 🙂 These include Jambo’s Grill, Ting Irie, Pinza, Shawarma Station, Karak House, Moshi, Classic Burger Joint, Mantoushe, Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management , WOFL, The Hot Dog Stand, Barsalata, Khameer & Dough, Mokha 1450, Häagen-Dazs and Sugarmoo.
