Like how Dubai areas are aptly named to represent the function (elo, media city) if seasons in Dubai were renamed (it’s Dubai, it could happen) we would now be entering food season.
Kicking off right with now Gulfood, then the city wide Dubai Food Festival takes over from February 21 – March 9, with the much-loved Beach Canteen and Taste happening end of Feb and early March respectively.
So it’s time to celebrate food.
Follow these three foodies to figure out where you should be eating this month
1. Food Sheikh
Food Sheikh is an anonymous reviewer, and following success with his fun, and most importantly, honest reviews, he has gone on to publish a food journal. (The first run of The 86 sold out, but maybe if you pester him here, more will be printed.)
With an in-depth knowledge of the restaurant industry, this witty reviewer won’t miss a trick when he visits a resto, and his sharp commentary of the resto scene in Dubai makes every review worth a read.
Check them out here.
Restaurant hosts and hostesses throughout the city are probably always on the lookout for Samantha Wood, aka, the creator of Foodiva.
A thoroughly passionate food reviewer, her award-winning website is basically an encyclopedia of Dubai restaurant reviews.
And now with a team of eager anonymous reviewers to support, despite Wood’s status as one of the best-known reviewers in the city, Foodiva continues to be one of the few sites offering impartial reviews of Dubai’s newest openings.
