    It’s hard to imagine the national cuisine of the UAE without the annual Dubai Food Festival, which for the fifth time brings together gourmets in Dubai. The event is held under support of the Department of Tourism and Commercial Marketing and the Institution for Festivals and Trade of Dubai. The best restaurants here take on the old recipes, which are passed down from generation to generation. At the same time, new restaurants of Dubai with new recipes are also being developed here.
    Dubai Food Festival is fundamentally different from others. It is built on the scenic laws of the culinary theater: here you can taste delicious dishes of the best chefs from around the world, make your “Restaurant rating”, plus there will be great music you will undoubtedly enjoy!
