Following an unexpected invitation and successful run of street food festivals in the UAE in 2015 (see here for more info), we saw the appetite for good food, cooked with passion and authenticity and decided to support a new series of pretty outlandish food festivals in the region. The premise was to take the best of British street food traders (and their food trucks) on tour around the UAE, bringing them together with a select crew of home-grown street food outfits, plus chef demos, live music and entertainment to create a full-on street food festival road show!
The festivals (run by Food Market Events Middle East FZ LLC) move accross three cities over three weekends, ending at the feet of the tallest building in the world in Dubai.
This year we brought together traders from the UK, US and Singapore for a truly unique and world-class line up of international street food.
Here are some pics from last year’s feastivities…
