The popular event Tom&Serg is back this year and starts today (Tuesday September 4). It runs for two nights only and if you’re after some tasty grub, you know where to head.
The market will be hosted in Tom&Serg in Al Quoz, where an impressive list of vendors will be heading down to sell their wares. Sellers include Boho-East’s swimwear, organic farm produce from Deena Farm, hand-crafted metal art from Gravura DXB as well as clothing from Lorna Jane Activewear. There’s also goods from Back from Bali and Wanderlust Stories if you feel you need a holiday vibe without actually leaving Dubai (we won’t tell anyone).
Meanwhile if you’re after food, pick up some tasty treats from Olive Grove, a UAE brand that sells a collection of olives, pickles, tapenades and pestos. You can also grab yourself a cool dessert from The Ice Cream Shop UAE, which has dairy and vegan options.
Of course, Tom& Serg will be serving up special dishes for the evening, including red-hot fried chicken, Cajun-style tenders and Korean-fried wings. Load up with sides including potato and jalapeño salad, white bean and charred corn salad and aged cheddar on corn bread. There are veggie options, too, including loaded potatoes with sautéed mushrooms, crushed guajillo pepper and guacamole.
And as part of the team’s Earth Project initiative they’ll be churning their own ice cream with the day’s leftover Rise and Dawn pastries, which you won’t want to miss.
There’s no need to leave the kids behind either, as there will be a blow-up cinema to entertain the little ones while you shop (and snack).
Sep 4-Sep 5, from 6pm. Al Quoz (056 474 6812).
