For a city known for its nightlife and snazzy dining scene throbbing in its swanky hotels and malls and breathtaking architectural delights, it's only natural that one wait for its much-vaunted food festival with bated breath. And that wait is over now—the Dubai Food Festival is here to take you through the city's pulsating culinary accomplishments, from high-end dining to creative food concepts and undiscovered delights and tantalising up-and-comers. So, get those lips smacking already.

This 24-day-long celebration of food will kick off tomorrow, that is March 25, and run until April 17—the first event of its kind to be held ever since the pandemic broke out last year. The Emirate has been actively pursuing strategies and measures to revive tourism and industry while also controlling the ongoing contagion—in fact, only last month, Dubai launched one of the world's largest waterparks.
