A moveable feast…

Flashback to November 2021, and we appreciate a lot has happened since then, but you may recall a flotilla of 24 food trucks pulling up at Mamsha Al Saadiyat. It was the Miami Vibes festival, a nomadic culinary celebration of light, sound and flavour — neon flamingos, house beats, an epic selection of eats, and tropical carnival vibes.

Mi Casa

Well now it’s back, parked up at the Jiu Jitsu Arena in Zayed Sports City, Abu Dhabi — featuring such illustrious casual, truckside vebdors as Hot Boxx, Sushic, L’Entrecote, Chiki, Pizzaz, Lobste Roll, Sakura, Lamba, Nap, On My Block, Shawarma vibes, Street 9, Acai Berry, White Cafe, Simple and more.

The collection of 32 trucks will be serving up fresh dishes of cuisine fire from 3pm to midnight on the daily, right up until February 16. Entrance is free, but you will of course need to make sure you’re sporting an Alhosn Green Pass to get in.
