That’s it: The collective belt buckle of the What’s On team has finally reached breaking point after eating our way around the city.

The result of our epic feasting (aside from a terrifying encounter on the scales) is our annual collection of the 50 best things we’ve eaten this year – a gigantic round-up of our favourite dishes of 2015. Warning: Deskside salivating likely.

However, we know our readers love food as much as we do so alongside our 50 best eats, we asked you to take part in the city’s biggest search for the best dishes in Dubai, and boy did you get involved!

Over 1,550 pictures have been posted across our social channels using the hashtag #DubaiBestEats. Here’s just an assortment for you to cast your eyes over…
