Foodies, get ready to get your fix…

Abu Dhabi’s epic three-day foodie festival is returning: the dates for Taste of Abu Dhabi 2023 have been announced.

Taking place from Friday November 10 to Sunday November 12 at Gateway Park South, Yas Island, the weekend-long festival promises food, drinks, and fabulous entertainment.

Taking centre stage at the alfresco festival is of course the food, and this year no less than 15 of the capital’s finest foodie outlets will be showcasing their stuff. Among the highlights, you’ll be able to sample dishes from sleek steakhouse Oak Room, lively jazz bar Penelope’s, and Al Qana’s Japanese eatery, Otoro. Also taking part will be some of the capital’s newer restaurants, including Jose by Pizarro, the slick Spanish restaurant from celebrity chef Jose Pizarro; and BB Social Dining, the Dubai-born restaurant that recently made roots at Yas Mall.

Adding further flair to the foodie feast will be a host of acclaimed chefs and top talents from the culinary world. Masterclasses and demonstrations from top chefs including Hattem Mattar, Ritu Dalmia and Marco Pierre White will all take place across the three days.

If you’re wanting to get involved too, there will be workshops and challenges aplenty. Fancy yourself as a budding chef? See what you can create with a box of surprise ingredients with the Kibson’s Mystery Box Challenge, or take on a session in BBQ school to learn from the city’s finest pitmasters.
