Madinat Jumeirah hosts the Chilli Crab Festival

Dubai, 23 March 2014:  Madinat Jumeirah, the luxurious Arabian Resort of Dubai, is proud to announce the return of the popular Chilli Crab Festival from 24 – 26 April, 2014.

This three-day culinary event celebrates mouth-watering dishes from the Far East including the famous Singaporean chilli crab which is covered in a delicious stir-fried, tomato and chilli sauce.
Located in the amphitheatre, Souk Madinat Jumeirah, visitors can experience a variety of oriental flavours and culinary favourites, including dim sum, wok-fried blue swimmer crab and tempura crispy crab.

The amphitheatre has hosted the Chilli Crab Festival for the last five years and the venue’s al fresco setting, with views of winding waterways and the iconic Burj Al Arab, adds to the festival experience. 

Food stalls, cooking demonstrations, live entertainment from Dubai musician Tim Hassell and a children’s corner with face painting, computer games and a build-your-own burger stand will ensure a fun day out for the whole family.
