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.

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.

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.

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 […]

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 […]

Unlimited Tasting Night @ Shanghai Chic Movenpick Ibn Battuta Gate Dubai

Our relationship with this place has had its ups and downs over the last few years. I’ve lost count how many times we’ve been back here, sometimes with groups of friends, with family, and the occasional schoolnight date – just the two of us 🙂 I waited a long time to do a proper post […]

Rouge @ Hilton Capital Grand Abu Dhabi

Definitely, the best, Asian fusion, that we have had. Being of asian backgrounds ourselves, we’ve never really wanted to go for Asian fusion because, a) authentic asian food it always, better (and cheaper) and b) half the stuff we can cook it at home, anyway! Now we’ve definitely had our minds changed after an amazing […]
