From a Michelin-starred restaurant to the best of street food: 6 must-try dishes at Dubai’s Global Village

The 27th season of Global Village is well underway with brand new pavilions, attractions and entertainment options.

When the KT team reached Global Village on Wednesday at 5.30pm, it was already bustling with people. As the evening wore on, the destination became ever busier, as residents and visitors flocked to check out all the new attractions.

With over 250 food and beverage outlets, Global Village has always been a food-lover’s paradise.

“This is a great place for restaurants to test the waters before setting up an outlet in Dubai,” said Jaki Ellenby, Executive Director of Marketing, Global Village.

“We have had a lot of brands that first started here and then went on to become extremely popular restaurants in the city.”

Here is a list of 6 must try food items at Global Village this year:
