    Beach Canteen is superb. It is a great spot for enjoying the street food of Dubai Food Festival. Similar to it, City Centre Mirdif is organizing an event named “Outdoors” with food stalls of various restaurants. See it. I really enjoyed the food there. Also, there are live performances of favourite artists every day. Food and music is a lovely combination.
