Winters always bring a handful of events to celebrate. Apart from UAE, Saudi is the leading region to hold winter events this time. The Winter at Tantora is an annual event held in the kingdom.

Flavours Of AlUla

The first-ever food festival happening as a part of Tantora is an extravaganza. If you feel we are exaggerating, then read for yourself. Here’s a detailed routine of the festival that will be running up til 14th January in the kingdom’s museum city.

The food festival, called Flavours Of AlUla is not just about devouring good food. It’s so much beyond the basic perception of any food festival. Let’s show you the different aspects of this event that has something for every age.

Rooftop? Nah! Try MountainTop Dining

The rooftop is thing of the past. Let’s climb the mountain tops for a great view and delicious food. To relish the best food of AlUla, visit these mountain-top restaurants to devour some finger-licking food.

Or you can totally skip that and stay back at the festival to taste a diverse range of food from sweet crepes, organic bowls, hot dogs, dumplings, rolls, ice cream and bubble tea made by the elite category of experienced Saudi & International Chefs.

MultiSensory Food Experience

Our daily routine includes eating as an essential part of the day.

Have you seen Masterchef? The black box challenge is somewhat similar to the mystery box thing from the reality show. For people who are blank with these, a Black box is basically about tasting or smelling food blindfolded.
