2017 dates for Eat the World DXB in Downtown announced
Time Out Dubai has food truck details and pictures as the 2017 dates for Eat the World DXB in Downtown are announced
Whether thanks to the brilliance of modern television series or “Generation Impatient”, no longer are we satisfied with a one-off of anything; there has to be a season two. That’s especially true when we’re talking about an international food festival.
Back for another season, Eat the World DXB returns to Burj Park in Downtown Dubai next month. Running from Thursday February 23 to Saturday 25, this year’s food truck event will see home-grown outlets battle it out with a whole army of trucks from overseas.
Unlike last year, where the three-day event saw 15 mobile eateries from London roll into town, the second edition of Eat the World DXB will see American camper vans and ice cream trucks square up against the Brits, each selected on the basis of its originality and the diversity of its culinary concept.

“The response to our first Eat the World DXB was fantastic; the public praised the food, the affordability and the originality,” said Philip Lowery, director of Food Market Events Middle East. “Dubai is not a place to stand still so we’re mixing the format up by bringing in the Americans this year.
Eat the World DXB 2017 will see the birthplace of the street food movement versus the movement’s current superpower – and that means more food and more choice.”
