A family Turkish breakfast @ Huqqabaz Jumeirah

Last weekend, we drove up to Jumeirah to review the newly opened Turkish restaurant – Huqqabaz. The name is quite familiar by now, isn’t it?

Huqqabaz Garden & TLV Fine Art – Where Butterflies meet Coffee

I had seen snippets of the Huqqabaz Garden on social media and was quite surprised to know that there was an outdoor cafe with a garden in Mall of the Emirates. You didn’t know that as well, did you? Did you know they also have displays of fine art within the venue?

Breakfast, Take 2 @ The Farm, Al Barari Dubai

The menu at The Farm has evolved quite a lot since it first opened its doors. My visit back in 2015 wasn’t exactly the best, and I’ve only been back twice since. Okay, I admit – the fact that Al Barari is a road-trip away from the Marina didn’t exactly help, plus it’s one of […]
