    Rising Flavours, a bespoke dining experience inspired by the countries of the GCC, will whet the appetites of visitors to Expo 2020 Dubai, allowing them to taste the flavours of the Middle East while experiencing the region’s cultures and unique takes on international cuisines.

    Foodies can expect to taste a gastronomical variety of dishes from UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman and Saudi Arabia at the food hall.

    Its ground floor is home to a regularly rotating line-up of culinary pods, with a celebrated cast including UAE-based Spanish pastry chef Carmen Rueda, known for combining comfort tastes with exotic flavours such as karak, strawberry cheesecake, and hazelnut popping candy; Douha Al Otaishan, Saudi Arabia’s first female executive chef; Hattem Mattar, the world's first Arab pit master and founder of The Mattar Farm; Turkish chef Zulfikar Cambaz; and Bahraini restaurateur Roaya Saleh.

    The first-floor hosts a licensed, full-service fine-dining restaurant, with a chef’s table and a theatrical cooking show. Diners can expect to savour dishes such as carrot, coconut and black bass tartar; risotto with assorted mushrooms, blueberry and truffle oil; and beef tenderloin accompanied by foie gras, khubiz (Arabian bread), black lime and charcoal.
