Dubai’s food clubs have a growing online following and are being used to help spread the word about the country’s food culture.
The Emirates Food Club website launched on March 14, and has already seen more than 50,000 visitors in the past month, with more than $200,000 in pledges.
The Dubai Food Club aims to help people to enjoy the culture of the UAE, said its founder, Ezeem Shaikh.
“We are not looking to be an extension of the Emirates Food Clubs.
We are trying to help Dubaiers get together and enjoy their food,” he said.
The online club aims to cater for the “people who like to drink wine and eat fish and chips” but also to offer people a “social gathering” experience.
“If you are looking for a food club in Dubai and can’t find one, the Dubai Food club is here to help you find one,” said Shaikh, adding that they also cater to tourists from around the world.
“I’m not looking for any money.
If you want to take your food out, we can give you a place to do that,” Shaikh added.
Food club shops also cater for people who want to buy food, but have no idea where to start.
Food club members can check out the websites of all the clubs and check on upcoming events, including live music.
The club’s online platform has been downloaded more than 1 million times, and it’s already made more than 2 million members.
The UAE has a long history of food clubs, with the country hosting the Dubai International Food Club in the 1990s and the Dubai Community Food Club of the Americas in the 2000s.
The country has also hosted food festivals, and is now home to the Dubai World Food Fair.
The International Food Clubs of the World launched in the UAE in 2007, but the first Dubai-based food club opened in 2010.
The Dubai Food Festival in Dubai in 2012 saw more than 3,000 people participate.
“When I started in Dubai, I was in the food club world and had a lot of people telling me that they were going to be here for a long time,” Shaik said.
“So now it’s our turn.”
