So we managed to get out of the house around 11-ish today which was an absolute miracle.

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.
