Irresistible to Italian food lovers, Eataly combines a high-end Italian food court and café with a gourmet grocer, all in one massive space in The Dubai Mall. The emporium was modelled after the original Eataly outside of Turin. The concept has since expanded to 16 global locations, with Dubai's outpost open since 2013.
There are a number of different food stations onsite, including a rosticceria (for roasted chicken and other meats), a panini and piadina sandwich maker, a counter offering pizzas and pastas, a very popular gelato stand and a coffee counter, where more than 30 different Illy drinks are available.
Make sure to take a turn about the grocer's area, and visit the foccacia stand and cheese counter, where you can watch a master cheese maker in action. Don't miss the fresh mozzerella.
