Foodies throughout the UAE rejoiced this past weekend as Taste Of Abu Dhabi returned to the capital for the second time – promising to be bigger and better than before.
Taste is a worldwide brand, with food festivals held in a number of cities throughout the world. The concept is very simple, to give customers the chance to sample dishes from some of the best restaurants in the city that they live.
Lets just get one thing out of the way – we here at Out & About UAE absolutely love a good Friday brunch!
Brunch is a pastime that we don’t really have in the United Kingdom. So we were super excited to discover the all you can eat/all you can drink mayhem of this legendary UAE tradition upon our arrival on these shores. Having worked our way through a fair number of these brunches over the past two years, we are calling it now… Olea at the St. Regis Saadiyat currently has the best Friday brunch in the capital!
Having heard so many good things about this establishment, and being in the vicinity of Masdar City this past weekend – we decided that it was about time that Out & About UAE visited Jim’s Kitchen Table. So after a quick trip on the driver-less cars (which you can read more about here), we were in the heart of futuristic Masdar city, attempting to find the restaurant with much difficulty – it would seem that signage and maps are a rarity in the future…
Last Saturday we here at Out & About UAE were looking for somewhere new to visit on a family day out. Eventually we decided that we would head to Masdar City on the outskirts of Abu Dhabi. Having heard mixed-reviews about this ‘future city’ we were not sure what to expect, but were pleasantly surprised by what we found….
The UAE (like the rest of the world) is addicted to the notion of the next best thing, or the new and unique experience. Over the past few years we have seen culinary food gimmicks evolve to unprecedented levels! What began with the combining of ingredients, giving us the must have foodie item of 2013 ‘the cronut’ (half donut half croissant), has evolved into the downright bizarre – have you seen the chocolate sharwarma found in Dalma Mall?
Nowadays even the way in which our food is presented to us has to be innovative – yes we are looking at you Rogo’s, with your astounding rollercoaster delivery system. The novelty of these ideas shows no sign of letting up… So we here at Out & About UAE, were really intrigued with the concept of FrostBite – the creation of ice cream out of thin air!
