Dur­ing the first week­end of the fes­ti­val, Eat the World DXB will wel­come 25 in­ter­na­tional street­food traders from the United King­dom, the United States and Sin­ga­pore. They will serve up their most pop­u­lar fare along­side some of Dubai’s most no­table street-food ven­dors.

“In only its se­cond year, Eat the World DXB is now the world’s ul­ti­mate street-food fes­ti­val in terms of its in­ter­na­tional spec­trum of in­dus­try-lead­ing street-food trucks and traders,” says Philip Low­ery, di­rec­tor of Food Mar­ket Events Mid­dle East, which owns and op­er­ates Eat the World DXB. “There is nothing else like it on the planet, let alone in the UAE.”

Ten street-food traders from the United States will be at the event, in­clud­ing Har­lem Seafood Soul Truck, The Peached Tor­tilla, End­less Sum­mer Sweets (think deep-fried Oreos) and Sushi and Seoul, a Florida food truck that dishes up oc­to­pus skew­ers. The 10 f rom the United King­dom in­clude Crab­bieShack – who won the Best of Lon­don gong at the Bri­tish Street Food Awards in 2015 – The Cheese Truck, The Cheeky Ital­ian and Bell & Brisket. Sin­ga­pore, a rguably the street- food cap­i­tal of the world, is rep­re­sented by chef Shen Tan (fa­mous for her nasi lemak), Kerb­side Gourmet and MasterChef Asia win­ner Woo Wai Leong, who will host cook­ing work­shops in the Sin­ga­pore pav­il­ion kitchen.
