The Localiiz Restaurant World Cup 2018

It’s finally here! The FIFA World Cup, the world’s biggest sporting event (who counts the Olympics?) only comes around once every four years, so when it does, we need to make the most of it.

As always, 32 teams have made it to the tournament and are divided into eight groups before reaching the knock out stage. But, in our foodie-obsessed SAR, rather than just follow the football we decided to create our own game, playing the city’s dining establishments off against each other to find our very own champion. We’ve appropriated a restaurant to match each country in the tournament (as closely as we can – HK is a little light on Serbian and Iranian restaurants) and will be putting them to the vote as the equivalent matches happen. By July 15, we will have our very own food final, with one restaurant crowned the Localiiz Restaurant World Cup winner. Voting is taking place on our Facebook page
