DUBAI – Satisfy rumbling bellies and experience lively exchanges with chefs and cooks from more than two dozen restaurants and 150 kiosks at Global Village.
An array of countries from Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas are all represented in the same convenient location for an experience that cannot be taken advantage of anywhere else.
We list 10 of the best restaurants and street foods that are not to be missed at Global Village:
Serving nothing but authentic dishes in a welcoming family environment supported by live entertainment, Mozzarella 21 wows visitors as they can see mozzarella cheese in the making along with every dish being prepared right there and then. But that’s not all, as Silvio Caroniti, winner of the Best European Pizza award in 2008, will be in action in the open kitchen preparing your pizza. Food enthusiasts planning on a gourmet tour of Italy can save the cost of the ticket, and instead make their way to Global Village to treat themselves to best sellers including Bresaola and Rucola Pizza, Lasagne, Penne Alfredo Pasta, and Al Cioccolato for dessert.
A paradise for all seafood lovers and one of most popular restaurants during this season, customers are treated to an upbeat atmosphere and a glimpse into life on the high seas as they revel in unforgettable tastes at Pirates Seafood. The concept originates from the brilliant mind of Emirati entrepreneur Huda Althani, whose unrivalled passion for food led to her creating incredible recipes. After high demand from friends she shared her discoveries with, Huda decided to pursue her interest further and opened this pirate-inspired restaurant. The menu favourite “Bucket” complimented by the famous blue sauce synonymous with Pirates Seafood comes highly recommended, delivering a delicious combination of shrimps, crabs, mussels, corn, and potatoes that blends brilliantly with white rice and noodles.
Konz Republic’s appeal as a place to visit for a bite to eat continues to endure. Once guests experience it for themselves, they leave with a clear understanding about why. It is here where French street food is produced with an Egyptian twist, as guests are asked to decide which one is their favourite kon: the Dajaj Kon or the Lotus Kon? Both are in high demand, but whatever quick and tasty comfort food you have on the tip of your tongue, Konz Republic will likely have the answer.
Enough to make even the staunchest carnivore dabble in vegetarianism, Global Village brings you the Chaat Baazar. The most genuine Indian cuisine in the UAE provides an authentic street food experience like no other across six different kiosks all preparing unique meat-free options with the most popular ingredients in India.
A must-visit for people on the keto diet or simply looking for a new approach to everyone’s favourite superfood, Avocadolicious has perfected Signature Avocado Fries, Blackened Shrimp Avocado bites, and the irresistible Avocado smoothie. Sounds good, right? Avocadolicious is undoubtedly among the best places to visit for people wishing to experience a new and interesting take on avocado-based cuisine and, as one of our most popular outlets close to the Culture Gate we are not going to argue with that.
Mighty Quinn’s American Cuisine is among the most popular kiosks in Global Village and it’s hardly surprising given the irresistible smell of Smoked Beef Brisket and Smoked Pulled Chicken, both of which are impossible to ignore. Always busy regardless of the time, we urge everyone to come along and experience the delicious sights and sounds of the various meats sizzling away – you won’t regret it.
Senor Gonzales is another irresistible option for lovers of Mexican food and Global Village guests to whom this applies really are in for a treat. The restaurant has developed a revered reputation for its Nacho platters and mouth-watering Chicken and Beef Tacos, as well as everything else on the menu. Senor Gonzales has been attracting foodies throughout Season 24 and provides a unique experience that cannot be missed.
A delicious option for Thai food lovers, Coco by Koii is an exquisite option for those looking for a unique taste sensation – everything on offer is made of fresh coconuts. The Coconut Ice Cream is an extremely refreshing favourite, as is the Coconut Mango, but as long as you are a fan of coconuts you will adore the entire menu and keep coming back for more!
Souffle is a standout attraction of the Floating Market, bringing countless visitors every day as they take on the difficult but vital task of choosing from a selection of Bangkok’s most popular and authentic desserts. Every option is prepared from scratch with specially-sourced eggs and milk. Global Village is the only place in the UAE that can transport your tastebuds to SouthEast Asia through a mouthful of Coconut Mango or Strawberry Souffle, both among the many crowd-pleasing menu items at this floating street food stall.
Visitors are encouraged to experience Sausage Fabrique, a modern butchery and delicatessen that serves the tastiest sausages, hotdogs, burgers, fries and a range of other juicy items – all of which are crafted by hand to the owner’s secret recipe. Sausage Fabrique started from a love for high quality sausages above all other foods, hence the logo depicting ‘A heart of Sausages’.
Its founders literally travelled the globe in a quest for the perfect sausage, solely dedicated themselves to discovering quintessential recipe and spice combinations. Et voila! Sausage Fabrique was born! Providing the very best meaty package brimming with great taste, the Spicy Italian and the Special Burger are among the most popular items on the menu.
