Azucar Brunch @ Sante Ria, First Collection JVC Dubai

We took the folks one Friday evening in May to The First Collection JVC to check out the South American restaurant Sante Ria. They have a brunch then – called Azucar Brunch, which starts from 8pm onwards. Definitely not a time to bring little people along so it was just the four of us grown […]

Evening Brunch @ Lah Lah, Zabeel House the Greens Dubai

Everyone raves about Lah Lah. Friends who live in the neighbourhood, online forums. Last weekend we had the opportunity to review their evening brunch, and I was actually pretty excited. A group of friends had wanted to check it out as well so they booked, and it ended up being a table of 9. Fun […]

Street Food Night @ Sui Mui, Westin Mina Seyahi Dubai

Sui Mui – this is the revamped of what used to be Spice Emporium in The Westin Mina Seyahi. We’ve been to Sui Mui a couple of times now since it opened last year – it’s always our go-to with the family and friends, after a day spent at the beach. We returned last Wednesday […]

Last Thursday we got the little ones dressed up, and ourselves too – for an evening brunch at Feast, located about 15 minutes up Sheikh Zayed Road from the marina. Happy to have accepted the invitation to review the brunch as it ticked a lot of boxes – there was going to be a lot […]

Whoa Wednesday @ Mango Tree Thai Bistro JBR

We’ve never been to the Souk Al Bahar branch when it was there. Have you? How was it? Happy that we finally tried the Mango Tree Thai Bistro, newly opened in The Hilton – situated on Plaza Level JBR just last night with mum. Date night without the munchkins 🙂 Then as we walked in,  […]

Evening Brunch @ The Hideout

As I type, I notice that the red Hideout wristband is still on. My head hurts. Evening brunch at The Hideout was good fun. We used to go to that same location in the Marina Byblos many years ago when it was Societe (click here). Ah… those days, feels like a distant memory now 🙂 […]

A Thai-Chinese Night @ Kris With a View Dubai

We almost didn’t make it. Schoolnights and driving up Sheikh Zayed Road never really went hand in hand, but I managed to convince G that if the food was as good as their Friday Brunch (click here), then it should be worth it! So off we went to Park Regis Kris Kin in Bur Dubai […]

A good Thursday night-out @ Trader Vic’s Souk Madinat Jumeirah

We’ve been to Trader Vic’s many times in the past over various occasions – casual dinner with friends, lunch on a cool afternoon with guests, or just for a few drinks. So why did it take me so long to decide on this place, when I was hunting down a venue for a very (very very) […]

A little bit of Brazilian @ Churrasco Nights, Cabana The Address Dubai Mall

Few Thursdays back, we were invited to the Churrasco Nights at Cabana, The Address Dubai Mall – renewed for the season. With the guests here and mum keeping them company (as well as our little one), the two of us sneaked away through the mall, to the outdoor pool of the The Address Hotel. Cabana, their […]

House Party Brunch @ Zero Gravity Dubai

When someone says they’re going to Zero Gravity – you know it’s going to be a big night. That’s probably why we haven’t been there for more than, let me see, more than 18 months now (10 months growing a baby, 5 months taking care of one, and a few months before all that doing….not […]

An Italian evening brunch @ Al Grissino, DIFC

It’s been awhile since we’ve gone to brunch with friends. Out came the handy Entertainer app and ‘Al Grissino’ popped up. I jumped onto social media to see if anyone else has been and saw this from fellow blogger Foodie with Suitcase , and decided – yep, we’re going. Their website had a few more offers and the Thursday […]

Date night @ Burj Al Arab by the pool : Bab Al Yam

With the doctor telling us that I’ve got ‘a few days to go’ before the little girl makes her debut, we decided to bring forward our date night at the Burj Al Arab. Anytime now, she says. I found out about the deal a few weeks ago when I could not sleep, and decided to […]

Unlimited Tasting Night @ Shanghai Chic Movenpick Ibn Battuta Gate Dubai

Our relationship with this place has had its ups and downs over the last few years. I’ve lost count how many times we’ve been back here, sometimes with groups of friends, with family, and the occasional schoolnight date – just the two of us 🙂 I waited a long time to do a proper post […]

Grand Brunch Buffet & Karaoke @ Asiana Hotel

Problem : It’s the weekend. You and your mates want to go out for an evening brunch that’s not too expensive. You wanna go for karaoke as well after, and you just don’t want to end up spending a fortune. Where, oh where shall you go? Solution : Here’s an easy answer for ya, if […]

The 80s and 90s Brunch @ Crab Tavern Dubai

It’s 12:16am. I didn’t follow the troupe to Q43 because I wanted to go to bed. But as I got into the apartment, I felt like I wanted to do very quick write-up, just cause I felt like it 😉 That’s why I love writing. You might say that it’s probably not the best to write after […]

Sparkling Brunch @ Latest Recipe, Le Meridien Mina Seyahi

Early June – C had organised an evening brunch , and Latest Recipe came into choice as it was in the Entertainer Monthly Offers. ( PS – and it still is! ) Evening brunches to be honest are not that easy to find, and we tend to go back to Channels as the easy, value-for-money last-min […]

Peking Duck Evenings @ Hong Loong, Sofitel The Palm

We have had peking duck in various different restaurants in Dubai. Some add it as part of their brunch feast (Toy Brunch, Le Rivage, Asian Channels), and some restaurants have it as a choice in their mains (Noodle Room). My hometown in Malaysia does it well, as does the chinese in Auckland. My memories of having […]

Sushi-licious at Blue Jade, Ritz-Carlton JBR

A lot of food this weekend 🙂 So beginning this month, when Monthly Offers released their deals, I had my eye on the Sushi-Licious deal at Blue Jade in Ritz-Carlton JBR. So excited, only 180AED for all-you-can-eat sushi, paired with selected Japanese beverages (in their own words, hand-crafted infused sake). I’m in!

Running Skewers Night at Chef’s House

I picked up my knife, and attempted to cut the piece of lamb that had been served to our tables. A firm grip, sliding up and down, meat was still intact. Frustrated, I waved the waiter down to ask, “Could I please get a steak knife?” He responded politely, almost apologetically,”Sorry we don’t have steak […]

Above and Below @ Nine7One, The Oberoi

I don’t know where to start 😉 It was unbelievably, jaw-droppingly, ama-zing. I took a chance this time with organising G’s birthday. Monthly offers only gets released on the 1st and I had to pick an evening brunch for Thursday or Friday this week. The moment it came live on Monday morning, I found Nine7One‘s […]
