Published on November 10, 2020 at 12.36
We’re hot on the heels of the Festival of Lights, so have put together a few of the exciting events and delicious meals on offer
Be a global citizen. Arguably the closest representation to Diwali’s homeland, India, as we can get over in the UAE, Global Village is replete with traditions, culture and food at its India Pavilion. Shop for unique items from more than 240 stalls selling handicrafts and artifacts, while also enjoying spectacular cultural shows before taking in a wide range of restaurants and kiosks as well as vendors selling street food favourites. The weather’s perfect!
Bespoke menu. Put some celebrity in your celebrations at chef Vikas Khanna’s Ellora at the JA Resort, Jebel Ali. His bespoke Diwali menu is Dh165 and available every evening from November 10 to 15. The carte includes all the classic snacks from Namak Pare flour crisps to Barfi and Gulab ka Sharbat: a combination of rose petals, milk, and almond flakes before dishing up classic mains and desserts.
Everyone’s a winner. Nobody in this town can resist a decent gold offer and Diwali brings out the best of them. Dubai Gold and Jewellery Group (DGJG) is currently hosting a range of promotions at participating gold stores until November 21. Deals include a raffle draw for 10 winners to win vouchers worth Dh10,000 each when spending Dh500 or more. Or their ‘Golden Goodies’ deal means you receive a free gift when purchasing...well...goodies.
Pass by Khyber. A three-day culinary affair should be enough to tempt you into this Dukes The Palm restaurant. From 5pm onwards on November 12 to 14, Dh150 will bag you a most festive dinner in Dubai at Khyber. Kick it up to Dh185 to include unlimited soft bevs and you’ve got yourself a party.
BurJuman bundle. The Bur Dubai Mall has come alive with an explosion of colours. Themed décor, hanging flowers and photo opportunities are dotted around the shopping centre and make sure to stop by the vibrant set up at the main atrium to adorn yourself with traditional bangles until November 14
