Burrata & Friends – Taste Of Italy by Heinz Beck

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.
