A fun, 1950s-inspired food truck park for the whole family to dine at!

When my friend suggested that we take our three small girls (one wearing a pink tutu) for dinner at a food truck park on a balmy 38 degree evening, I have to say that I wasn’t entirely convinced. However, being highly suggestible and always keen to avoid cooking, I went along with it anyway and I’m delighted to report that I stand completely corrected.

The Last Exit is located off the E11 between Dubai and Abu Dhabi, and is open 24/7. It’s a retro 1950’s themed food truck park where 12 individually designed vintage airstreams house a variety of food and beverage outlets. You can either drive-thru or park up and eat at the outdoor benches or the indoor (thankfully air conditioned!) seating area.

The girls (big and small!) loved it. We were totally entertained walking between the trucks deciding what to eat, soaking up the lively atmosphere and admiring the creative decor. The designers of this place really grabbed their theme and ran with it. From licence plate lighting and sinks made from tyres, to spanner door handles and an old school petrol pump, the attention to detail is incredible. As dusk fell, strings of fairy lights lit up the park. It’s completely charming and will be even better when the temperature drops a few degrees.

My friend and I ate tacos from Poco Loco, whose sombrero wearing truck was my favourite, while the girls had hot dogs and ice cream. We probably weren’t winning any Mothering Awards on the nutrition front that evening but it was ‘fun and yummy’ which goes a long way with the under 6’s. And, for that matter, with those of us who may be slightly over…
