I have lived for more than 5 years in Dubai but still can’t come terms to the temperature soaring to as high as 45 C and feeling like 60 C. Last month, after Little A’s swimming class I made the biggest mistake of pulling up a car outside park to spend some time at a playground, only to come back home in 15 minutes because we just couldn’t spend another minute at an open space even though it was past six in the evening. Although I have always felt fresh air is as important to young children as it is for adults, currently Dubai climate isn’t in my favor. 

What really in my support is the opening of Modhesh World at a time when outdoor activities have come to an halt and vacation boredom is at its peak for those few who haven’t left UAE for a break! We have been visiting Modhesh World at DWTC atleast once a year since Little A turned two. It has been one of the most innovative and exciting destination during the summer packed with multitude of activities for him, however, I really really love the introduction of food trucks this year and so many new options to choose from.

I see how UAE is catching up with food truck trend here and it definitely made a big impression on me – being able to tuck in each item from various places during a few hours we spent at Modhesh World has been phenomenal. Another good part is having different food stalls in addition to trucks to offer so many more choices for every tastebud – from children favorite pancakes to Mexican tacos, slushes and icecreams, coffee and karak, Emirati cuisine and pizza in a cone to Indian chaats – you’ll never fall short of anything this year at one place. And the fact that every stall caters to children favorites, you wouldn’t need to burn yourself to stop at another restaurant for a dinner after a splendid day-out.

Although the place gets crowded during the weekend, our orders came in quickly yet fresh. A huge shoutout to Big Chefs for their delicious and impeccable chicken burritos – husband and I have been such a fan of theirs since that day, we ought to visit their restaurant in Al Safa. I’ll list down below what we ate and recommend at Modhesh World this year –

The Brass has their specialty Karak and coffee which are a must try when you feel tired of walking through an enormous area and running after the children.

Vanilla with mixed berries ice cream roll is a must try.
There are never too many icecreams, so indulge in one more. Strawberry from Turkish Icecream.

Food-wise I couldn’t find any faults at Modhesh World – it has only gotten much more better in it’s 17th year so to say. Zeyna from Mummy On My Mind and Tarana from Sand in my toes have put up an excellent summary of their day out – read their post to know more on entertainment for families at Modhesh World.
