DYSTOPIAN DIN­ING

Friday - - Leisure Charts -

A sec­tion of the Dubai-Abu Dhabi high­way has turned into Fury Road – and this time the ram­pant road rage the free­way is fa­mous for has noth­ing to do with it. There’s a new Mad Max-in­spired Last Exit food truck park on Shaikh Zayed Road near junc­tion 11. Un­like the post-apoc­a­lyp­tic world in the film you won’t have to fight for food or re­sources, de­spite the pres­ence of aban­doned cars and mon­ster trucks mounted with ma­chine guns. Like the other three Last Exit joints (at Al Qu­dra, Al Khawa­neej and Jebel Ali) burg­ers, hot dogs and in­ter­na­tional street food abounds. Although the food truck park recre­ates the am­biance of a fu­tur­is­tic waste­land, it’s ac­tu­ally quite eco-con­scious and is en­tirely con­structed us­ing re­cy­cled wood, metal and scrap ma­te­ri­als.
