Azucar Brunch @ Sante Ria, First Collection JVC Dubai

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) […]
