Weekends in Dubai
22nd January 2015 – 24th January 2015
This weekend in Dubai, I can’t believe I have added mostly food related topics. Of-course, the Market OTB is still open and such a lovely atmosphere early mornings before the crowd. We loved the Jam Jar sessions with paintings and all things art. I have warned you though, you will be over spending. Sometimes, these markets tend to forget the real reason why people have street markets… for the bargain and good food. You won’t particularly find a good bargain there but definitely worth a visit!
1. Dine at TR!BECA Kitchen
A New York inspired lifestyle hotspot featuring healthy and organic food, whilst showcasing local entertainment and an endless display of artistic home-grown talent opens in JBR, Dubai that serves healthy and organic food and beverage options in a lounge bar environment, is set to take place on Friday 23rd, January, 2014 for a VIP private launch. The TR!BECA kitchen is headed by award winning Chef Giovanni De Ambrosis, who passionately couples exquisite food with artistic form, hailing inspiration from Mediterranean cultures and fusing them with American Contemporary Cuisine.

4. Mark Australia Day at Clé Dubai

5. Food Festival at Perry & Blackwelder’s Original Smoke House
The fair, which is free of charge to attend, is a buckle-down celebration of all things meat. Expect food stalls with wings tossed four ways, smoky sliders including short rib and turkey and barbecue platters of P&B’s signature brisket, turkey and hot wings. With side orders of live country music from Wes Hayden and his band, fun and games for all the family and specially-sourced craft hops and rye, the fair is a true taste of the Deep South’s most-loved traditions. From 5-10pm, Sunday to Thursday and 2-10pm, Friday and Saturday, Pitmaster Lawrence Wells and his team will showcase the USA’s Deep South barbecue heritage from which the restaurant draws its inspiration. Harnessing the traditional technique of cooking meat for long periods of time at low temperatures with smoke from a wood fire – this is not barbecue as you know it.
Where: Perry & Blackwelder’s Original Smoke House at Souk Madinat Jumeirah
When: Thursday 22nd January for 10 days
