It’s official now.
The Roundup Market has successfully kicked off in Dubai, showcasing the largest number of food trucks under the brand Roundup. It is a food truck carnival, the first in the Middle East, with various odd trucks assembling on Fridays at Zabeel Park gate 3 and Saturdays at Creek Park gate 1. One may get to eat burgers, Tex-Mex, street food, Middle Eastern sweets, milkshakes, ice creams to single-origin organic coffee.
Day 1 started off at Zabeel Park on a sunny Friday. Who says Dubai sleeps late on a Friday? The launch commenced at 0930 with hand-picked food bloggers and connoisseurs joining up for the food tour. A peep into the Shawarma Station food truck showed them how shawarma was made using a fresh lemony mayo. That was followed up by the decadence of chocolate caramel and carrot cakes from 54 Diner.
Next stop was the Greek chain Mastiha. Everybody was invited inside the truck to see how they made refreshing rose and saffron milkshakes and ice creams. This is something you will not get anywhere else.
A walk through the market was delightful; seeing the innovative huts that were constructed. Time taken to put up a hut? 4 minutes by the watch!
Last stop was the single origin, Ethiopian, organic coffee truck Bio Bean. Smooth-tasting coffee refreshed the guests with that familiar coffee kick!
Day 2 started off in windy Creek Park. A different set of food lovers were invited for the tasty tour. The happy smiles only tell what perhaps words cannot.
So grateful for the love and support for the first ever food truck launch. This continues now: Fridays ay Zabeel Park gate 3 from 3 to 11PM and Saturdays at Creek Park gate 1 from 3 to 11PM.
