Restaurants

While at the moment I am not completely sure if restaurants here are going to be from the ones we had at the venue before; the range of restaurants would be international and local cuisines. Too early to speculate but I’ll try send a media request.

During the expo, food was one of the more unique attractions; with traditional cuisines served at pavilions and popups. Had the chance to experience some uzbek food during their 2 week popup.
