Vivo Business Lunch @ Sushi Samba, Dubai

Date Night at the revamped Siddharta Lounge @ Grosvenor House Dubai

Did you make it to the opening party of Siddharta Lounge last Monday? I really should’ve made an effort, gotten dressed up and walked across the bridge. It’s literally a ten minute walk from home and if I peek out of the balcony I could just see it. But… it was one of those days. […]

An Izakaya addition to JBR : Ramusake Dubai

I get excited when it comes to Japanese food. Back home, we go to my favourite yakitori bar for a skewer or two with a ice cold glass of umeshu, and frequent the many izakaya bars scattered around town. When we moved to Dubai, I was somewhat disappointed that though there are quite a few […]

Japanese Bakery worth driving 30km to – Yakitate

Back in November, a dear friend of mine told us about this new japanese bakery in Al Ghurair Centre. Now, we don’t normally venture to the other part of town in the weekends because weekends are usually spent lazying around home and the neighbourhood in the marina. She mentioned that it should be good, so […]
