An underrated Chinese Joint – Leten @ Dubai Mall

I’ve been meaning to write about Leten since our first visit back in January with mum. It’s one of those places that you add to the ‘to-blog’ list but then get busy. It’s reasonably priced and good so you go back again for the second, third, fourth, fifth time. I think if I put the […]

Yum Cha @ The China Club, Radisson Blu Deira Creek

With mummy in town, it was perfect timing to go for yum cha, as this was something we did probably every weekend with family and friends back home. GPS switched on, we found the Radisson Blu next to the creek over the bridge after a wee bit of a drive (and getting lost ;)). We […]
