Taste of Dubai offers patrons the option of trying a miniature version of dishes from the trendiest and tastiest restaurants in Dubai and keeps you entertained while munching away. The only catch is that to buy the dishes from the various stands you have to use a form of fake currency defined by the event, and each one of these monopoly monies costs 5dhs ($1.36) and a standard dish is 8 fake bills so yeah, in reality it's about $10 a dish - not exactly a cheap night out when you are sampling several.
But it's still a great way to spend an evening! In addition to sampling the wares, we participated in a South African "whites" wine tasting, watched a throw down in the chef's theatre a la Iron Chef, and even attending a cooking class taught by Chef James Martin and made a grilled chicken and curried pumpkin dish. They best part is you can have all the fun and not have to do the dishes!
