Everything you could need in one prime location…

A new licensed dining hub is set to open at The Pointe on Sunday November 8, called Food District. The two-storey destination will feature 13 of Dubai’s best homegrown concepts including Reif Japanese Kushiyaki, Sticky Rice and Bite Me Burger & Get Plucked.

The first floor will host ten of the brands, offering guests a varied selection of cuisines, as well as two licensed bars. Downstairs you’ll find an artisan coffee and café concept, with sandwiches, pastries and a gelato stall.

Food District is the brainchild of the team behind Nakheel Mall’s popular food hall, Depachika. Their next venture takes a prime location at The Pointe, with optimal views of the newly launched Palm Fountains which run daily from 7pm.

The one-stop shop for breakfast, lunch and dinner includes stalls from Bite Me Burger and its sister chicken shop, Get Plucked, home of the famous chicken waffle cone. You’ll also find Fujairah’s very own oyster farm, Dibba Bay Oysters where you can enjoy a dozen No 3s for Dhs150.
