Dubai isn’t short of a few food trucks (well, it’s not short of food full stop).
However a scenic new hotspot will let you walk off your snack before you’ve even eaten it.
Say hello to the Boardwalk, a newly-opened 11-kilometre waterfront promenade on Palm Jumeirah which will be lined with around 20 food trucks.
Eventually serving everything from fish and chips to falafel, spaghetti and shawarma, the Dhs150 million project curls along the Palm’s outer crescent.

A couple of trucks are open for business now (including Bob’s Fish & Chips), with the rest to follow throughout November.
When completed, the walkway will feature an East and a West pier, each reaching 100 metres out into the ocean, and lined with cafes and restaurants.
Some of the eateries will be glass-fronted, meaning diners will get a million-dollar view over the Palm and Arabian Gulf.
“The Boardwalk has transformed Palm Jumeirah’s crescent into a vibrant destination for fitness, leisure, shopping and dining, and is the perfect spot for cycling, jogging or a relaxed waterfront stroll,” said a spokesperson from developer Nakheel.
“Our food trucks are the first component of this new attraction, which will be a big draw for residents and tourists on the island, and for the wider Dubai community.”
Each pier will be constructed out of 1,000 square metres of decking, while the six-metre-wide Boardwalk itself has been built over the Palm’s breakwater rocks.
With 30 kiosks as well as the 20 food trucks, you won’t be short of options when the whole thing is open – plus you’ll now have a nice venue for a gentle stroll, with some shady respite.
Now there’ll be no more saying there’s nothing to do on the Palm but go to hotels…
