Abu Dhabi Food Festival (ADFF) has concluded with more than 70,000 visitors and food lovers coming together across the emirate, strongly contributing to the positioning of Abu Dhabi as a global culinary hub.
The two-week festival, organised by the Department of Culture and Tourism, Abu Dhabi, ran from December 6-22, incorporating an outstanding line-up of food and beverage events, including World of Food, Festember, Big Grill, SIAL Middle East, the ADFF Scavenger Hunt and TimeOut Restaurant Week.
During its 17 days, foodies, families and friends attended the festival's various events around Abu Dhabi and were entertained with food trucks, organic markets, themed dining experiences, mall activation events, and celebrity chef appearances.
Saif Saeed Ghobash, Undersecretary at Department of Culture and Tourism, Abu Dhabi, said, "ADFF has once again successfully attracted a huge number of residents and visitors alike, who not only enjoyed tasty cuisines from some of the best chefs from around the globe, but also the very best food-related experiences available anywhere in the world today. This year has seen a packed programme of delectable offerings that, in my view, further cement Abu Dhabi's position as an international hub of culinary inspiration."
Despite Abu Dhabi Food Festival having now finished, visitors and residents alike can still visit the capital's Street Food Fest taking place at The Mall, at World Trade Center, until December 29. The two-week outdoor market will bring the super food on offer inside the mall, outside onto the pavements.
