New additions include Rainforest Café, Hatam and Oporto, Climbing Goat Roastery and Bricobilandia 

Dubai, UAE: In line with its strategy of focusing on the best customer experience across leisure, lifestyle and entertainment, Dubai Festival City Mall, part of the Al-Futtaim Group, has introduced a selection of new F&B options including the world-famous Rainforest Café, Hatam serving mouth-watering Persian  dishes and Oporto, the leading Australian restaurant. And with further brands joining Dubai Festival City Mall in the coming months including the speciality coffee shop, Climbing Goat Roastery and Bricobilandia, offering brick building workshops for kids, there is no better time to visit the mall for world class retail and one-of-a-kind experiences to be enjoyed by the whole family.

Already boasting over 50 delicious F&B outlets, Dubai Festival City Mall is expanding its offering by welcoming three new additions to its roster including the jungle-themed restaurant, Rainforest Café. Designed as an exotic jungle, Rainforest Café recreates the sights and sounds of the Amazon rainforest. This spectacular dining experience enables guests to enjoy great food and drink whilst the unique jungle surroundings are brought to life with the help of stunning special effects and lifelike animatronics. Great for all the family, Rainforest Café has an extensive menu of American and international cuisine catering to both adults and children alike. Food on offer will include hearty steaks, delicious burgers, and scrumptious pasta, to healthy salads and mouth-watering desserts.  

In addition, visitors at Dubai Festival Mall can enjoy Hatam, offering delectable Persian  cuisine such as kebabs and mezze, to delicious salads from as little as 16.00 AED. Located in the Food Court, this new restaurant is set to become a firm favourite for discerning foodies. Whilst Oporto, known for its equally famous fresh and flavourful flame grilled chicken has made its way from Sydney’s Bondi Beach to Dubai Festival City Mall. With culinary inspirations from Portugal and southern Europe, visitors at Oporto will be able to discover an international appetite for adventure and authentic moments, shared together over a deliciously delightful and unpretentious menu comprised of fiery flame grilled chicken, burgers and sides that are a juicy cut above the norm.

This April, Dubai Festival City Mall will welcome Climbing Goat Roastery, offering best in class specialty coffees using only the finest, fairly traded beans from around the world. And for those looking for unique activities to keep the little ones entertained can enjoy Bricobilandia, which is set to launch in June. This children’s stay and play area will see children build a host of toys, interact with each other, and what is more, develop their imagination. Catering to children from as young as three, Bricobilandia’s experienced staff will join in with the fun too and host a series of exciting workshops. 

Steven Cleaver, Director, Shopping Centers Dubai, Al-Futtaim Malls said:As ever we are committed to creating exceptional experiences for our shoppers. Our dining offering has grown from strength to strength and we are pleased to introduce a range of new F&B options, further entertainment for kids and revamped concept stores, which have been carefully selected to complement our existing expansive dining opportunities.
