This weekend (Friday October 19), Le Méridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre is transforming its outdoor Village into a fiesta of global cuisine, showcasing signature dishes from all 18 of its restaurants. That includes everything from Sukothai’s tongue-tingling curries to dim sum from Long Yin and sizzling barbecue meats from M’S Grill.
Also on offer are Tex-Mex bites from Jules Bar and the flavours of the Far East from Kiku, while Casa Mia will be serving up comforting Italian flavours. Meat lovers can also dig into dishes from Warehouse or Yalumba specials, with all the food prepared by a team of 250 chefs from 4pm to 8pm on Friday October 19. One of the highlights will be Seafood Market, which celebrated its 25th anniversary earlier this year.
Even better, the whole event is being held outside meaning you can take advantage of the breezy winter weather. Meals are priced from Dhs25 while hops will cost you Dhs22, meaning this is a food festival that won’t break the bank. There’s also plenty to do for the kids, with interactive games and activities including a bouncy castle and a dedicated play area.
4pm-8pm, Fri Oct 19. Le Méridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre, Airport Road, Garhoud, meridienvillageterrace-dubai.com (04 702 2455).
