Mirdif City Centre Launches “Flavours of the World”

This is a (slightly) late post. I have been so blessed this year that I can’t keep up with the stories I want to share! #thankyoumoreplease!
Last Wednesday I was lucky to be invited to the media launch of “Flavours of the World” in Mirdif City Center. To celebrate the start of the outdoor dining season, they have prepared a month-long international food festival.

Garden of Lights at the Oasis Walk

From 15 November to 15th December 2013, shoppers can enjoy Al Fresco dining with Mirdif City Centre’s extensive range of F&B partners. Diners can choose from more than 80 global dining options and enjoy the ambience created by the Garden of Lights.

Dining is such an important part of our lifestyles, and Mirdif City Centre is pleased to celebrate the onset of the outdoor dining season. The theme of this year’s campaign, “Flavours of the World” perfectly suits what we have on offer because you will find delicacies from all continents under a single roof” – Fuad Sharaf – Sr. Director – Property Management

Shoppers who spend AED 300 in cumulative or individual receipts at any store will get a chance to enter a draw and win a dining experience in Italy with the whole family (two adults and two kids).  You get double chances of winning if you spend the same amount at any of the F&B outlets. Now that’s really generous!!

Dynamite Shrimp – PF Changs – I think I finished this all by myself!

Aside from the wonderful dining experience and the chance to win an amazing prize, recipe booklets are distributed to food lovers throughout the festivities. These booklets will have information about each cuisine and recipes of best-selling dishes of the participating restaurants. (I need to get my hands on one of those babies!)

Here is my partner in crime, Grace of Sandier Pastures enjoying the food at Yo! Sushi. I have a side story to tell — Grace and Rosell (Kero’s Celebration) had to teach me how to use chopsticks. I never really learned coz I would always ask for the easy grip chopsticks at Yo! Sushi. (LOLS! )

This has got to be my favorite food of the night. This zucchini pasta from Carluccio’s is just LOVE! I also had hummus, mutabal and mixed grill from Leila’s.

Who knew I would be eating zucchini for the first time?

Aside from the food, there was also entertainment. Musicians were playing live, and while we were enjoying our food, an illusionist stopped by our table to perform.

He literally bent and melted this fork right before our eyes. This was a real fork! I touched it myself. (Can you tell I’m impressed? hehehe)
