The Amer­i­can celebrity chef be­hind Todd English Food Hall

What's On (Dubai) - - CONSUME | EAT // REVIEW -

Dubai be­ing a great food city. I be­lieve it’s a city that likes to eat.

Todd English Food Hall is a mod­ern mar­ket of food. You’ll find cui­sine from all around the world with a lit­tle bit of my own in­ter­pre­ta­tion thrown into the mix.

It’s fun, dar­ing, and yet au­then­tic, all served up in an en­vi­ron­ment that is con­ducive to hav­ing a great time.

If you’re re­ally hun­gry, you should try the burger chal­lenge. If con­tenders can fin­ish a whop­ping eight pat­ties with cheese, let­tuce, tomato, pick­les, onion rings and French fries within 20 min­utes – we’ll give you the dish for free.

I am im­pressed with the Dubai restau­rant scene. There is a lot of di­ver­sity here. I love the in­ter­na­tional as­pect, but I like that Emi­rati cui­sine is also cel­e­brated. We’ve tried to re­flect that cel­e­bra­tion of di­ver­sity at Todd English Food Hall.

I grew up lov­ing the aroma of gar­lic, onion and olive oil. My mother’s side of the fam­ily is Ital­ian and they all love to cook. I think I was born lov­ing food.

Last week­end on earth, where am I eat­ing? I’d be in Italy, with a bowl of pop­corn chicken, caviar and a big glass of red from Bordeaux.
