I had an earlier experience at Taste Of Italy where I tried some very special Italian delicacies by Michelin Star Chef Heinz Beck when he visited Dubai and had the pleasure to meet with the chef in person and attended his Masterclass.
TOI is is not only a modern Italian restaurant but at the same time it has an extensive range of Italian merchandise, a section of bakery, sweets, icecream, etc. The restaurants is quite spacious with both indoor & outdoor seating.
We attended a Burrata filled evening last week. Taste Of Italy hosted a delightful event named ‘ Burrata & Friends ‘. As the name says the evening was full of burrata tasting.
