Taste of Dubai 2011

March is a happening month for Dubai, and what better way to hit it off than with Taste of Dubai. My favorite nibblefest annually turns Dubai Media City amphitheatre park into a smorgasbord of delicacies from all over town.

With DMC towering all around, chefs and restaurants offer their distinctive culinary icons in sample-sized but hearty morsels.
