A family favourite – Walnut Grove @ Dubai Mall

There are some places you go to once and you tick it off your list, and then there’s Walnut Grove. Early last year, we checked out the Dubai Mall branch as part of a review. Shortly after, they were introduced into the Entertainer and we returned again and again on our own expense for lunches, […]

I’m doing this post for a dear secondary school friend of mine who is expecting, and will possibly have to have husband (or someone else) prepare all these dishes after the little one comes along.

Confused, and trying to contain my offense, I told her that we actually wanted to have dinner here. “Can we?” I added, with a smile. It must be the pool hair, make-up […]

The Chelsea Brunch @ London Project, Bluewaters Dubai

After a failed competition attempt for the Chelsea Brunch months ago, followed by another failed review-pitch attempt, I decided maybe one day I would come to The London Project and try it out on my own account. So when a dear friend whom I haven’t seen for the longest of time got in touch to […]
