Some pretty tasty cargo has landed on Dubai’s beaches this week, in the shape of shipping containers housing pop-up restaurants on the sand. The Beach Canteen project, part of the Dubai Food Festival, will see 16 of the city’s best-known restaurants serving up everything from sushi to tacos for 10 days from this Thursday. Cranes deposited the refurbished cargo containers along Jumeirah 1 Open Beach, Kite Beach and Sunset Beach, helping to turn each of the three into distinctive ‘dining districts’. Foodies looking for a festival vibe should head to Jumeirah 1 Open Beach, which will have arts and crafts and picnic tables perfect for tucking into French crepes from Le Creparis, maneesh from Lebaneesh or buns from Roti Mum Café.
