This year, Ramadan will likely fall on the evening of March 23nd, subjected to the sighting of the crescent moon. As always, there will be iftars organised by restaurants and hotels all over the city. It’s a really nice time to get together with family and friends, whether or not you are fasting. Coincidentally, the […]

Ramadan Kareem, all. Last week we returned to Huqqa in Dubai Mall with the family to review their iftar set menu. The girls were quite excited, not so much about the amazing Turkish food that they serve but about the Ipads they have in the restaurants. Priorities ay, kids these days.

Having spent a week in Sicily in April didn’t stop us from heading over to BiCE for iftar. You could never say no to good italian food. BiCE has been around ever since we moved over here back in 2012, and I’m sure it was around even before that. There’s a reason why restaurants “survive” […]

Mum loved it. Last Iftar before she flies home, and this was probably the highlight of the 4 iftars that she’s been to 🙂 It’s actually quite small (for Dubai), but it’s intimate, it’s beautiful, and just enough. Impressed how they managed to fit so many people in Nawwara yet not make you feel like […]

So I decided to take mum to The Beach…. since she’s never been there before after it has opened 🙂 It was a gruelling 38 degrees, as we parked our car in front of Al Fattan towers and wandered pass the Hilton onto The Beach. Started to sweat already and mum’s mood was going from […]

You know it’s good when you come home and the first thing you want to do is write about it before you forget 😉 Tonight, R and I went to Armani/Mediterraneo for the first official iftar. Ramadan Kareem, everyone. I was excited – because it would be the first time dining in Armani Hotel. Though […]

We’re constantly being reminded how amazing hospitality is, in Dubai. Tonight’s little outing has definitely raised our standards of what “service” is, and should be. Thanks to Lorenzo and the team, as well as the amazing chefs who prepared such a scrumptious Iftar buffet at Sloane’s on the mezzanine floor of Tower One, Grosvenor House […]
