Sunday Roast at The Ritz @ The Ritz Carlton DIFC

Another one from The Family Brunch crew – here’s Sunday Roast at the Ritz, which we popped over one afternoon in June to review with the family. Having been to the Seaside Brunch and seen numerous videos on socials, we had an inkling as to what to expect, and was pretty excited for the kids. […]

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 […]

Afternoon Tea @ The Library, St Regis Downtown Dubai

Afternoon tea is a tradition that mum and I do – whenever she’s here. As such, I would actually say we have done most of the Afternoon Teas in Dubai, particularly those that were in the Entertainer. Past tense, because as we all know, most venues are (sadly) no longer part of the program. Whilst […]

Pan-asian delights @ Nonya Dubai, Taj JLT Dubai

We took the folks over to the Taj one afternoon mid-May to review the newly opened Nonya over dinner. I had found out about the venue on socials ; apparently it had ‘Malaysian and Singaporean influences’. Possibly the first time I’ve seen a fine dining joint specifically mention this in their social blurp. We got […]
