Whoa Wednesday @ Mango Tree Thai Bistro JBR

We’ve never been to the Souk Al Bahar branch when it was there. Have you? How was it? Happy that we finally tried the Mango Tree Thai Bistro, newly opened in The Hilton – situated on Plaza Level JBR just last night with mum. Date night without the munchkins 🙂 Then as we walked in,  […]

Evening Brunch @ The Hideout

As I type, I notice that the red Hideout wristband is still on. My head hurts. Evening brunch at The Hideout was good fun. We used to go to that same location in the Marina Byblos many years ago when it was Societe (click here). Ah… those days, feels like a distant memory now 🙂 […]

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 […]

A good Thursday night-out @ Trader Vic’s Souk Madinat Jumeirah

We’ve been to Trader Vic’s many times in the past over various occasions – casual dinner with friends, lunch on a cool afternoon with guests, or just for a few drinks. So why did it take me so long to decide on this place, when I was hunting down a venue for a very (very very) […]

House Party Brunch @ Zero Gravity Dubai

An Italian evening brunch @ Al Grissino, DIFC

It’s been awhile since we’ve gone to brunch with friends. Out came the handy Entertainer app and ‘Al Grissino’ popped up. I jumped onto social media to see if anyone else has been and saw this from fellow blogger Foodie with Suitcase , and decided – yep, we’re going. Their website had a few more offers and the Thursday […]

Date night @ Burj Al Arab by the pool : Bab Al Yam

With the doctor telling us that I’ve got ‘a few days to go’ before the little girl makes her debut, we decided to bring forward our date night at the Burj Al Arab. Anytime now, she says. I found out about the deal a few weeks ago when I could not sleep, and decided to […]
