International food trucks will descend on Dubai next year when Eat the World DXB – a hip, new street food-meets-entertainment concept – brings 15 of the English capital’s most diverse food truck concepts to Burj Park.A contemporary street food, music and entertainment event Eat the World DXB is expected to attract a crowd of 20,000 from 25-27 February. The festival will also feature a celebrity chef theatre, top local food trucks and restaurants, an artisan food market and an array of exciting food experiences.
“London’s food truck movement has been setting international trends for years and Eat the World DXB will bring some of the world’s most innovative culinary concepts to Dubai as well as showcasing the best of Dubai’s local home-grown street food movement”, said Philip Lowery, Eat the World DXB’s festival director.
“With an eclectic array of cuisines from across the globe, Eat the World DXB will offer Dubai residents and tourists an authentic food truck experience – one unlike anything else currently in the market – right in the heart of the city.”
Food truck traders already confirmed for the event include Fish Dogs – which offers an exciting take on the classic fish finger sandwich – by world-renowned London chef Mark Hix, and British Street Food Awards Finalist 2015, Bangwok, which serves authentic Thai street food straight from the window of a customised tuk tuk.
Other food truck highlights will include Big Apple Hot Dogs, an Americana-inspired East London vendor, and The Cheese Truck, which has received several accolades for its oozing, cheesy creations.
“The food truck movement is already a big part of the Dubai food scene and this event will officially cement Dubai’s status as one of the world’s most eclectic food capitals,” added Lowery. Eat the World DXB runs 25-28 February 2016 at Burj Park, Dubai.
