A Turkish Iftar @ Huqqa, Dubai Mall

Ramadan Kareem, all. Last week we returned to Huqqa in Dubai Mall with the family to review their iftar set menu. The girls were quite excited, not so much about the amazing Turkish food that they serve but about the Ipads they have in the restaurants. Priorities ay, kids these days.

Dining with Kids @ Seagrill Bistro, Fairmont the Palm

The elder one was back in Falcon’s, and younger one completely passed out in our awesome Dragonmart yoyo. I headed towards Fairmont’s seafood restaurant again – this time supposedly incognito and on my […]

Los Chapitos Family Brunch @ El Chapos Tacos, Studio One Hotel Dubai

After a lot of browsing around for a Saturday brunch that was family-friendly, the Los Chapitos brunch at El Chapo’s Tacos popped up in this recent Time Out article. “Kid-friendly vibe” it said, plus “activities to keep the little ones occupied.” Bit more googling landed in a review during their September launch which again went […]
