What is Eat the World
A food related event that comes under the broad banner of the Dubai Food Festival, but has a separate and unique identity. It’s called Eat The World as, despite the overseas food trucks only coming from London, they will be serving international food. London is well known for food from around the world.
Emaar is the main sponsor for Eat the World and Virgin Atlantic is the event’s Travel Partner. Eat The World is happening at Burj Park in the Downtown area of Dubai.
Which London Food Trucks will be at Eat the World
The Crema Caravan, The Cheese Truck, The Roadery, Milo & Hector’s, Happy Maki, Bangwok, Dixie Union’s, What The Dickens, The Other Side, Crabbie Shack, Made of Dough, Churros Bros, Hix Fish Dog, Oli Baba’s and Big Apple Hot Dogs!
The ones in bold were at a media tasting event held at Jones the Grocer Tuesday 23rd of February and they were all FAB people serving even more fabulous food. See for yourself.

Where exactly is Burj Park, what about parking?
UPDATE 26th FEB 2016:
Burj Park is very difficult to find, I suggest you don’t put in into your google maps if you’re in the car! Instead look for the big sign almost opposite the Palace hotel that says BURJ PLAZA!
Walk down the steps, cross the footbridge then look for signs to Eat the World, not well signposted at all! You can park in the boulevard’s parking or at The Dubai Mall, there’s a walk either way whether you decide to park in the boulevard or at the mall.
What does my ticket price include
Entry to the event and the experiencing the entertainment, all food has to be bought on site. There is NO ALCOHOL for sale at the event. UPDATE 26th FEB 2016. Although the setting in spectacular the whole event was a bit underwhelming and really didn’t live up to the hype. AED 40 was a bit steep for entry based on what was on offer, but last night at least with the fountains and Burj Khalifa lit up, the setting was spectacular. The Pizza and the Pad Thai looked good in addition to what’s been mentioned above. But the media event at Jones on the WED had a completely different feel.
Happy Eating and maybe see you down there!
