Business Lunch @ Nonya, Taj JLT Dubai

How about a 4-course lunch in a pan-asian fine dining joint somewhere close to home or work, for 99aed – which includes coffee or tea? Somewhere, with sweeping views of the Dubai Marina, and the Emirates Golf Course. Look further and you can actually see a teeny bit of the Burj al Arab. That’s business […]

Vivo Business Lunch @ Sushi Samba, Dubai

It only took me 10 months to finally pay a visit to the much-talked about – Sushi Samba. There were numerous attempts to do their business lunch, but when you have school pick ups to do – the 12-2pm timeslot never worked. Finally booked us a table during the school holidays, to try out their […]

A Family Lunch @ Gal, Address Downtown Dubai

It was nice to return to Gal with the family, after a sneak peak of the venue in an event in the summer. With good weather in Dubai right now, we chose to sit outside in their terrace this time. Do not worry – every spot you choose, you will be overlooking the mammoth structure […]

Business Lunch @ Bella Restaurant, Grand Millenium Business Bay Dubai

First time I saw a bit of Bella was whilst sneaking into Caroline Stanbury’s instastories. I saw the shiny copper plates on the wall, the Dubai skyline and was thinking – ah, that looks nice, where is this? Bit of clicking and googling took me to Bella and the fact that it was in Business […]

Business Lunch @ Filia, SLS Dubai

Shortly after SLS opened its doors here in Dubai, social media went into a little explosion of its own. There were so many reels of Fi’lia and their rooftop pool – that steady camwork leading out to their terrace, I can just picture Fi’lia’s staff shaking their heads watching guest after guest collecting content for […]

A Family Lunch @ The Beach Grill, Address Beach Resort

The Beach Grill is Address Beach Resort’s pool and beachside restaurant. It’s what Palm Avenue is to Waldorf, Seagrill is to Fairmont, Plaj is to Zabeel Saray. It’s basically where you’ll take your kids to dine after an afternoon by the family pool – and guess what? As an in-house guest, kids under 7 dine […]

Business Lunch @ Roka, Dubai

Tasked with finding a spot for lunch with friends, I google-searched “Business lunch Dubai” and ended up going through a whole list of restaurants on What’s on. A few phone calls to various venues – some were fully booked for two weeks (that restaurant with the famous swing) – I ended up with Roka as […]

A Leisurely Lunch @ Mina Brasserie, Four Seasons DIFC

Chef Michael Mina was in Dubai for a few days, and we were quite fortunate to have been invited to pop into Mina Brasserie for lunch whilst he was there. We had never been to Mina Brasserie – so was fairly excited to get dressed up and drive up to the Four Seasons DIFC on […]

Beachside Dining @ Twiggy by La Cantine, Park Hyatt Dubai

We had spent a few evenings by the Park Hyatt lagoon pool back in December, watching the restaurant being built. Little did we know that it would be Twiggy, one of La Cantine’s newest venture – and a very successful one it appears to be, seeing how busy it was on a late Monday afternoon. […]

Beachside Lunch @ Eauzone, One & Only Royal Mirage

Eauzone is One and Only Royal Mirage’s asian restaurant – known to many as one of Dubai’s most romantic restaurants. Well, that’s for evening time when the sun sets and the pool lits up turquoise. In the day time it serves as a pool and beachside restaurant, somewhere you go to for a bite after […]

Beachside Lunch @ Seagrill Bistro, Fairmont The Palm

Back to Fairmont the Palm this weekend with the family – this time for a lunch review at their seafood restaurant – Seagrill Bistro. I had always had the impression that the restaurant was an adults-only venue, but was then informed that kids were welcomed. Did you know that kids 5 and below eat for […]

Weekend Family Lunch @ Flow Kitchen, Fairmont The Palm Dubai

Back again to the Fairmont at the Palm – this time for literally the entire afternoon 🙂 So if you’re planning to spend the afternoon here with the family using Privilee, or otherwise just looking for another spot to go to for lunch on a Friday without breaking the bank – give Flow Kitchen a […]

Family Lunch @ Walnut Grove, Dubai Mall

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. We had […]

A Fab Lunch @ Maine Oyster Bar & Grill Dubai

If Lovin’ Dubai were to do a post on this, they would probably title it, “This has got to be the best business lunch deal in JBR”…… or “If you work or live in JBR, you have to come here for lunch.” Unfortunately as great a title that would be to get everyone to click on […]

Turkish Meatery by the fountains @ Gunaydin, Souk Al Bahar Dubai

I was quite sad when I saw Urbano closed its doors. We used to take guests there for some good Italian, with a view of the fountains. After sometime, the construction boards came down and taking over was a new Turkish meatery – “Gunaydin” it was called. We had missed the media event, so requested […]

An eventful lunch @ Socrates, The Mall Dubai

When “The Beach” was open to the public, we used to make fun of it – how literal things are named in Dubai. The Walk, The Beach, and then there was The Bridge (near Rimal in JBR). “One day someone is going to build a mall and call it “The Mall”. That day did come. […]

A drop-in for lunch @ The Tap House, Club Vista Mare Dubai

I didn’t get on a good start with The Tap House. When the strip of new restaurants launched in front of Tiara Residences two months or so ago, I went on my handy app to see if any of them have decided to offer a 241. Tap House was there. Ha, time to check it out […]

Cosy French Fare @ Brasserie Flo, The Venetian Village Abu Dhabi

Last weekend, we made our way down to Abu Dhabi with the family, to check out one of the many restaurants in the Venetian Village. This was actually the first time that we have ever been through the grounds of The Ritz Carlton Abu Dhabi (where The Venetian Village lies). What was meant to be […]

A Peruvian lunch date @ Coya Dubai

Coya, colourful Coya. Much love and thought has been put into the interior design, and I’ll dare say the same for their food. Early last week, I met up with blogger friend C from AtoZaatar.com for lunch. I have been to their Members’ Club Lounge early this year, and as we left the venue I […]

Lunch @ Medzo Italian Restaurant, Wafi Pyramids

It’s Thursday, time to head for lunch 🙂 I ended up choosing Medzo in Wafi Pyramids, because of a few simple reasons : a) They do pre-orders, which was very critical to us lot as we don’t have a very long work lunch break (and don’t like to wait for food….) b) I’ve been there […]
