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 […]

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 […]

Date Night @ Eauzone, One&Only Royal Mirage Dubai

We returned to Eauzone one fine school night, all excited and dressed up for a much-awaited date night. One&Only Royal Mirage’s modern asian beachside restaurant had recently introduced a new menu. It would be our first time dining there without the little people, which also means we can actually look at the food, eat it […]

Evening Brunch @ Lah Lah, Zabeel House the Greens Dubai

Everyone raves about Lah Lah. Friends who live in the neighbourhood, online forums. Last weekend we had the opportunity to review their evening brunch, and I was actually pretty excited. A group of friends had wanted to check it out as well so they booked, and it ended up being a table of 9. Fun […]

Lobsters and Sushi @ Sea Fu, Four Seasons Resort Dubai

Though we have been to the Four Seasons, it would be our first time walking into their gardens, and to dine in Sea Fu. As you would expect from the Four Seasons – their gardens are carefully manicured and every corner appears to have been designed for that picture-perfect snapshot. Add in those fluffy clouds […]

Naughty Noodles Friday Brunch @ Maiden Shanghai, Five Palm Jumeirah Dubai

Everyone knows Five. Let’s be honest – it doesn’t have the best rep after all the noise it made earlier this year2021. And if you have had a few kids, it probably isn’t at the top of your ‘family-friendly resort’ list either. But hey – we all need a break from the little ones, right? […]

Street Food Night @ Sui Mui, Westin Mina Seyahi Dubai

Sui Mui – this is the revamped of what used to be Spice Emporium in The Westin Mina Seyahi. We’ve been to Sui Mui a couple of times now since it opened last year – it’s always our go-to with the family and friends, after a day spent at the beach. We returned last Wednesday […]

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.

Dim Sum Yum @ Maiden Shanghai, Five Palm Jumeirah

The big 40. Not me – not yet anyways, hee hee. I was looking for a spot for the husband’s birthday do, and it was going to have to be karaoke. A bit of googling and Maiden Shanghai popped up as one of the few places in Dubai that has a karaoke room. Well, one […]

Pandastic Friday Brunch @ Asian District, The Pointe

A friend was raving about this new asian foodcourt/restaurant at The Pointe – they had gone for the 148AED unlimited dishes deal on a schoolnight and said the food was amazing. Checked the Entertainer and found that they had a 241 for their Friday Brunch – 255AED for two, including drinks. What a crazy deal […]

A Family Day Out @ Fairmont The Palm

Whilst the evening didn’t start out right, as we had planned to stay in the Kid’s Club with both our girls for half an hour before dinner started …. this was eventually made up by great service (and food) at Flow Kitchen 🙂 And of course, an hour of peace and quiet during dinner as […]

Our take on Kim’s Singapore Seafood

When another restaurant pops up in Dubai, and markets itself as offering authentic cuisine from our region – we get so excited. Took us awhile to check this one out – I’ll blame it on attempting to make plans when you have two under two’s, and the fact that Kim’s Singapore Seafood is located at […]

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 […]

Thai Dining, Khan Tok Style @ Mekong, Anantara The Palm Dubai

I’ve been to Mekong at Anantara The Palm a couple of times now. Not as many times as I’ve been to Thailand – just enough to recommend to friends if they were to ask for a good Thai spot.  Their ala carte dishes never disappoint – though we were not blown away with their Sam Yan […]

Authentic Yum Cha found in Dubai @ Peacock Restaurant, Sheraton JBR

I’m happy to say that we’ve found a reasonably priced yum cha experience, close enough to what I’ll call authentic. Still not perfect…. but close enough. Some restaurants try to do its best, but without the pork factor, you can never really bring out the authenticity of yum cha. That’s me looking at a lot […]

A Taste of Asia @ Friday Brunch, Kris with a View

So many hotels in Dubai and yet, we haven’t been to Park Regis Kris Kin after being here for almost 5 years now. Go ahead and say it, ” You spoilt marina lot!”. Yes yes, that’s us 🙂 Now, I’ve seen a few photos on social media and posts from other bloggers who have dined at […]
