World Exhibitions give visitors the chance to travel the globe in one day, visiting countries’ pavilions and learning about their innovations, problems, philosophies and cultures – and their food. Many pavilions have their own restaurant, and CAMPUS GERMANY is no exception. The winner of the catering tender conducted by Koelnmesse on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy for the German Pavilion at EXPO 2020 Dubai has now been revealed: Angerer & Obermayr Messegastronomie. They have a wealth of experience in catering for large events.
The menu will feature typical dishes from across Germany, both with and without fish and meat. “At EXPO Dubai we will be in a Muslim country, so it was obvious that we would modify the menu in line with local customs. Pork is, quite literally, off the menu, of course but we still want to serve up something that will live up to Expo visitors’ expectations of German cuisine,” says Gerhard Obermayr. “Having said that, we are aware that lamb dishes are popular in the region,” he continues - a fact that will be reflected in the choices available.
The German restaurant in Dubai will extend across three levels and, in a modern take on the German “Biergarten”, there will be benches and tables in the outdoor area on the ground floor. The second floor will also house three private dining rooms, each with seating for 15, which can be joined together.
Angerer & Obermayr Messegastronomie will be providing the catering for the VIP lounge and running the souvenir shop as well as the restaurant.
