At the end of last month we here at Out & About UAE were kindly invited by Joe’s Crab Shack to visit the restaurant on opening day and sample some of the food. We were very excited as this was the first occasion since starting the blog that we had actually been invited to write a review by an establishment. Unfortunately we were unable to attend the event and were disappointed to say the least.

Fast-forward a couple of weeks and we found ourselves by chance in The Dubai Mall. So instead of heading to one of our usual favourite spots for food (The Cheesecake Factory), the decision was made to try out the newly opened Joe’s Crab Shack, to see if we really had missed out by not attending the tasting event on opening day.

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.
