MASALA! FOOD AWARDS: The Shortlist is Out!
MASALA FOOD AWARDS

The first ever Masala! Food Awards will be held on September 15, 2019 at Habtoor Grand Resort, Autograph Collection. This is for the first time Masala! will be honouring individuals and establishments from the South Asian community who have made their unique mark in the F&B industry. Dubai, with its dynamic food scene, is home to some of the best restaurants in the world – from hole-in-the-wall eateries to Michelin-starred fine dines, Dubai’s got everything. Our very own South Asian cuisine is right up there when it comes to great food!

Over the last few weeks, Team Masala! has received several nominations from South Asian F&B entities for the food awards. Sifting through them, researching their popularity and shortlisting the best among them was as interesting as it was challenging. But here it is! The final shortlist where one of them will walk away with the honour in each category.

Check out the full list here and gear up for this season’s most exciting food awards.
