    Leading local food hotspots chosen to serve varied menu to millions at Expo 2020

    Chosen homegrown brands will shine a light on Dubai’s fun and flourishing food scene

    A selection of UAE-based cafés, restaurants and food trucks will be showcased at Expo 2020 Dubai, offering millions of visitors the chance to taste the deliciously varied cuisines from homegrown brands, while giving renowned local institutions the opportunity to make their mark on the international food scene.

    With more than 200 nationalities calling the UAE home, it is no surprise that the local food scene reflects a vibrant melting pot of cultures. The UAE-based eateries chosen to share their dishes are no exception, spanning influences from Lebanon to India and the Philippines to Ireland.

    Local favourites that will have outlets at The World’s Greatest Show include classic Dubai brands Arabian Tea House; Al Farwania, an Indian gem; Seashell Cafeteria; Dampa Seafood Grill, a Filipino hotspot; Lebanese stalwarts Al Reef Bakery and Al Khabbaz; and Firas Sweets, which is renowned for its traditional Middle Eastern dessert, kanafa. The six-month spectacular will also feature a variety of Al Samadi’s concepts, such as Hummus Spot, Rogue Coffee and Twisty Treats.

    In addition, there will be some novel brands, such as Saj 2 Go, which serves a type of baked bread that dates back centuries; Doh, a coffee and doughnut specialist; Flower Café; and the camel milk-inspired Majlis Café. Expo 2020 will also welcome the iconic The Irish Village, showcasing authentic Irish food and traditional entertainment.

    “Expo 2020 will be a foodie destination in its own right and we urge visitors to bring a hefty appetite so they can explore the wonderful diversity and generous hospitality that the UAE is renowned for,” said Darren Tse, Director – Concessions and Programming, Commercial, Expo 2020 Dubai.

    The much-loved local restaurants will be among the 200-plus food and beverage outlets at Expo 2020, offering more than 50 cuisines to suit every palate and budget.
