Foodies should get ready as Etisalat Beach Canteen is back for its 2021 edition with an amazing line-up of dining concepts, live entertainment and activities that the whole family can tuck into.
Organised by Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE), the free-to-attend event opened to the public on Thursday and continues for 17 days, concluding on December 11.
Experience a slice of the UAE's culture and heritage infused with a modern, innovative and upbeat vibe with National Day-themed decor, concerts, stalls and more.
During this time, visitors will be able to find a number of food trucks and kiosks located at Jumeirah Beach (behind Sunset Avenue). This year, 39 vendors will be taking part, with 26 being new to the festival.
This year, Etisalat Beach Canteen is celebrating the UAE's National Day with colours of the UAE flag carefully interspersed throughout the event. The venue has been divided into different zones, each cleverly named to trigger a bout of nostalgia.
Customers will be able to find their favourite food at Baqaala Lane, satiate the sweet tooth at Halawa Corner, or pick up sweet and savoury treats from Snack Souq. There’s even The Dukkan – a kiosk selling UAE-themed merchandise, suncare products, sunglasses and apparel.
Also expect a mix of international and home-grown brands. Some of the vendors include CZN Burak, House of Pops, Pulled, GOAT, Slider Box, Mini BBQ, Moshi, Dibba Bay Oysters, Torrija (a brand specialising in French toast), Mihbash (for bubble tea), Pinza, Sugargram, Pink Burger and SMK.
