You don’t need to attend every restaurant opening to be in the know but no self-respecting foodie should miss out on these.
Abu Dhabi World has got you covered with these amazing food events happening across the capital.
Go on! Help yourself!
Taste of Abu Dhabi
There’s a reason why the Taste of Abu Dhabi is called the capital’s favourite food, drink and music festival.
The three-day event showcases the hottest restaurants, world-class celebrity chefs and an incredible line-up of entertainment in the capital.
You get to sample taster-sized signature dishes and watch chefs cooking it up at live demonstrations and masterclasses.
There’s even more.
Did we mention the VIP section? We have now.
And what about the kids? Don’t worry, they’re catered for too.
They will have their very own dedicated kids’ zone catering to the capital’s youngest foodies. It’s good to start them young, right?
There’s not long now for the much acclaimed event of the year, which returns to du Arena on Yas Island from 7th to 9th November.
But can you wait that long?
Plates at the ready!
Abu Dhabi Food Festival
Our friends at the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi will be organising the Abu Dhabi Food Festival once again.
Now in its fifth edition, the event is arguably the longest celebration of food in the capital.
The previous edition last December spanned a whopping 17 days and more than 100 restaurants took part.
The five specialist events included Festember, Big Grill, Fam Food Feast, SIAL, MAS Vegan Market and World of Food.
Stay tuned for the 2019 installment to be announced soon.
Join our club…
Club Social bills itself as the ultimate beach festival with everything from water sports to live entertainment and, of course, lots to eat.
You’ll get to spend two days basking in the sunshine along a picturesque strip of Yas Beach while filling up on some of the most popular food concepts in town.
Sip mocktails from a coconut, bite into the best burgers around or munch on mozzarella sticks batter dipped in cornflake crumbs. You choose. (We won’t deny it, we’d choose them all…just sayin!)
If you can dream it food-wise, then it’s on offer.
Food aside, Club Social really knows how to light up the night.
Dates have not been announced just yet. But with Bastille headlining this year’s event, it pays to stay alert for the announcement of next season’s lineup.
