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

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

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 […]
