The Dubai Food Festival continues….

Foodies in Dubai absolutely love this time of year!  It is cool enough to be outside on beaches and even better to be eating the best cuisine from around the world outside.  The Dubai Food Festival started last week with Eat the World DXB and the Miele Dubai Restaurant Week.  This week sees the continuation of the Etisalat Beach Canteen behind Sunset Mall and Street Nights DXB along with lots more.  The Beach Canteen continues to be the hive of great food and entertainment. Reel Cinema Food, beach sports and activities and music.  Don’t miss Street Nights, two of the coolest days taking place during Dubai Food Festival. A surprise celebrity chef will be making an appearance, and the largest open graffiti forum will take place.  But that’s not the main attraction- the real highlight will be the Regional BBoy Competition, which will draw skilled breakdancers to battle it out on the dance floor for the BBoy title.   From 5pm at Bay Avenue on 2nd & 3rd March.  The overall festival will continue until 11th March.
