December is the perfect time to enjoy the outdoors here in Abu Dhabi, which means World Trade Center Abu Dhabi’s Street Food Festival couldn’t have come at a better time.
From now until December 30, Liwa Street, outside the mall, will be filled with 40 stalls selling an incredible range of food from around the world.
There will be everything from American pancakes to vegan delights and from freshly baked bagels and Indian kebabs to Filipino barbeque dishes, all from venues found inside the mall.
Every day from 5pm to 10pm the street will come alive with the delights and smells of a street food market and a colourful array of entertainment.
Each stall serve small, sample-sized dishes from their menus, which will be at pocket-friendly prices so you can try as much as possible on your visit.
There will be stands from Sugar Factory, Pancake House, Stroopwafel, Hot Palayok Restaurant, Doner Gyros, Zaitoun Akhdar, Fresh Way, Dome, Jehangirs Kitchen, Chhappan Bhog, Nandos, Al Mandous Restaurant and more, as well as stalls from a local organic farmer offering fresh produce.
Taking inspiration from the night markets of Singapore, Street Food Fest will have performances from bhangra dancers, African drummers, alongside children’s workshops and face-painting for little ones. There will also be a visit from Santa each night at 7pm and a choir will get everyone into the festive spirit on December 17.
Last year’s event was a huge hit, with the World Trade Center area offering a different kind of event over the festive season, and 2019’s edition looks to be bigger and better.
We can’t wait. We’ll see you in the line for some inihaw na manok this week.
Free entry. Dec 10-30, 5pm-10pm. Liwa Street, World Trade Center Abu Dhabi.
