Family Weekend Excursion in Downtown – Address Boulevard Dubai

Address Boulevard Dubai opened its door earlier this year. Yes, I know  – another Address 🙂 So everyone knows the infamous Address Downtown Dubai which made headlines news NYE 2016. It’s not that one – this is the brand new beautiful property, which is located opposite Fashion parking, and you got it – along the Emaar […]

Thai Dining, Khan Tok Style @ Mekong, Anantara The Palm Dubai

I’ve been to Mekong at Anantara The Palm a couple of times now. Not as many times as I’ve been to Thailand – just enough to recommend to friends if they were to ask for a good Thai spot.  Their ala carte dishes never disappoint – though we were not blown away with their Sam Yan […]

Date Night at the revamped Siddharta Lounge @ Grosvenor House Dubai

Did you make it to the opening party of Siddharta Lounge last Monday? I really should’ve made an effort, gotten dressed up and walked across the bridge. It’s literally a ten minute walk from home and if I peek out of the balcony I could just see it. But… it was one of those days. […]

A Fab Lunch @ Maine Oyster Bar & Grill Dubai

If Lovin’ Dubai were to do a post on this, they would probably title it, “This has got to be the best business lunch deal in JBR”…… or “If you work or live in JBR, you have to come here for lunch.” Unfortunately as great a title that would be to get everyone to click on […]

Turkish Meatery by the fountains @ Gunaydin, Souk Al Bahar Dubai

I was quite sad when I saw Urbano closed its doors. We used to take guests there for some good Italian, with a view of the fountains. After sometime, the construction boards came down and taking over was a new Turkish meatery – “Gunaydin” it was called. We had missed the media event, so requested […]

Breakfast @ Chival, La Ville Hotel Citywalk Dubai

What we do a lot these days as a family with a little person : breakfasts. You will probably see more reviews of this from now on 😉 So when La Ville opened its doors in Citywalk, I was quite keen to check out the family-friendly eateries that they have to offer and was happy to […]

Discovering french fare @ Le Classique, Emirates Golf Club Dubai

Last weekend, we got all dressed up for a much belated date at the Emirates Golf Club, across the road. By road I meant the 6-lanes very-busy Sheikh Zayed Road. Though we can actually see the Golf Club from our place, we hardly cross over for food (none of our friends really talks about it?). […]

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. Some restaurants try to do its best, but without the pork factor, you can never really bring out the authenticity of yum cha. That’s me looking at a lot […]

Penrose Afternoon Tea @ Four Seasons DIFC

A favourite foodie thing that the little one and I like to do : afternoon tea in Dubai. So when a dear friend got in touch to catch up over tea, I had a browse through online and found one of a few that I haven’t actually been to : Penrose Lounge in Four Seasons DIFC. […]

A Parisian Brunch “Reveil” @ La Cantine Du Faubourg Dubai

Saturdays are usually spent chilling at home. Recovering from the night after for some, doing your weekly groceries or maybe, catching up with friends at a laid-back brunch. La Cantine introduced just that few weeks back, as noted in their press release – to “indulge in the delights of a real Parisian bedroom.” So when […]

Pan-asian delights @ Zengo, Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort

Before Zengo opened its doors and Le Royal Meridien was still working on the then “new” road leading up to its entrance, the husband and I used to go cycling down that way quite a bit and wondered what was going on : all these wrapped-up trees and construction. January 2015 came, we had a […]

A little bit of Brazilian @ Churrasco Nights, Cabana The Address Dubai Mall

Few Thursdays back, we were invited to the Churrasco Nights at Cabana, The Address Dubai Mall – renewed for the season. With the guests here and mum keeping them company (as well as our little one), the two of us sneaked away through the mall, to the outdoor pool of the The Address Hotel. Cabana, their […]

A Taste of Asia @ Friday Brunch, Kris with a View

So many hotels in Dubai and yet, we haven’t been to Park Regis Kris Kin after being here for almost 5 years now. Go ahead and say it, ” You spoilt marina lot!”. Yes yes, that’s us 🙂 Now, I’ve seen a few photos on social media and posts from other bloggers who have dined at […]

Cosy French Fare @ Brasserie Flo, The Venetian Village Abu Dhabi

Last weekend, we made our way down to Abu Dhabi with the family, to check out one of the many restaurants in the Venetian Village. This was actually the first time that we have ever been through the grounds of The Ritz Carlton Abu Dhabi (where The Venetian Village lies). What was meant to be […]

JW Marriott Celebrates 21 Years of Steaks and Stories

Introducing, Chef Mohammad Iqbal, who has been at the JW’s Steakhouse since it opened its doors 21 years ago. We were very honoured to have met the man himself last night – very humble, and polite as he showed us the restaurant, one of the oldest, and supposedly first steakhouses in Dubai. He then said us, […]

House Party Brunch @ Zero Gravity Dubai

When someone says they’re going to Zero Gravity – you know it’s going to be a big night. That’s probably why we haven’t been there for more than, let me see, more than 18 months now (10 months growing a baby, 5 months taking care of one, and a few months before all that doing….not […]

Friday International Brunch @ Giardino, Palazzo Versace Dubai

I’m in the ‘short blog’ mood. A little sleepy, after spending possibly most of the day with the family at Palazzo Versace.  Where is this hotel, you ask me. Throw it into google, and she’ll lead you there – next to the creek, near Marriott Al Jaddaf, is all I can say. Quite an odd […]

A Taco Night @ Poco Loco, The Beach Dubai

So last night we drove over to The Beach to attend the launch of ‘Taco Tuesdays’ at Poco Loco. For AED 129 per person, you get to feast on as much tacos’ as you wish. Pretty good way to try out what they have to offer. Traffic on Jumeirah Beach Road was jammed (as usual? […]

A family Afternoon Tea @ Lotus Lounge, Anantara The Palm

So you ask me, with all the 241s available for afternoon tea, why would you come to The Lotus Lounge in Anantara The Palm and pay full price? There has got to be something different, something special, for you to pay that extra. Yes, once you use the voucher, The Lotus Lounge usually loses out […]
