You wouldn’t expect to sit outdoors at the end of May by the pool for brunch. The kids were quite happy to play by the pool and eat off the low tables without being restrained to a chair, which made it a lot more comfortable for us grown-ups as well. I guess that’s what made … More Chez Charles Friday Brunch @ Playa Nomade Dubai
Lunch with the family is often a stressful affair. Two-year-olds and ‘pretty-looking places’ don’t go hand in hand at all. So when we received the invitation to review the newly opened Walnut Grove at Dubai Mall, I was pretty hesitant. It was either going to be Disastrous Level 3, or Disastrious Level 2.

I had no … More Lazy Weekend Breakfast @ Links, Address Montgomerie

I haven’t organised a group brunch for a long time….last one was end of last year – City Brunch at the new Westin (which wasn’t all that great, that I couldn’t be bothered writing about it..).
