A Good Lunch @ No. Fifty Seven Boutique Cafe, Dubai

With so many new restaurants replacing old ones in Mall of the Emirates – I wasn’t too sure where to bring the folks for lunch. Had a browse on the Entertainer App and noticed that there’s a new(ish) cafe that was in THAT Concept Store. Yes the store name is in caps, I’m not shouting. […]

We shifted to a table in one of the corners of the restaurant. Parked the pram, sat the 2-year old down and started to go through the menu. As we tried to settle down, I could not help but notice that the lady at the table next to us was staring at us. The littlest […]
