Afternoon Tea @ The Library, St Regis Downtown Dubai

Afternoon tea is a tradition that mum and I do – whenever she’s here. As such, I would actually say we have done most of the Afternoon Teas in Dubai, particularly those that were in the Entertainer. Past tense, because as we all know, most venues are (sadly) no longer part of the program. Whilst […]

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. […]

Thai BBQ Night @ Mango Tree Thai Bistro, Hilton Dubai the Walk

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 […]

Al Qasr Afternoon Tea @ Al Fayrooz Lounge

This I’ll say. It’s pretty, it’s very pretty. We had a great time. However, food was just – alright. Here’s a detailed take on what we got for 200AED (for two, with the Entertainer 😉 )

Breakfast @ A La Turca, Rixos The Palm

I woke up early on Thursday morning, eventhough I had taken the day off work. Last day with mum before she flies home! Rang a few hotels that served breakfast and was in the Entertainer and most don’t accept vouchers for their brekky deals. Finally found one – Ala Turca in Rixos The Palm. Yay! 🙂 […]
