Whilst the evening didn’t start out right, as we had planned to stay in the Kid’s Club with both our girls for half an hour before dinner started …. this was eventually made up by great service (and food) at Flow Kitchen πŸ™‚ And of course, an hour of peace and quiet during dinner as […]

Our take on Kim’s Singapore Seafood

When another restaurant pops up in Dubai, and markets itself as offering authentic cuisine from our region – we get so excited.

Pan-asian delights @ Zengo, Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort

Before Zengo opened its doors and Le Royal Meridien was still working on the then “new” road leading up to its entrance, the husband and I used to go cycling down that way quite a bit and wondered what was going on : all these wrapped-up trees and construction. January 2015 came, we had a […]
