Breakfast with Kids @ Roseleaf Cafe, Dubai Garden Centre

Whilst I think that the security guard was not very happy at our little ones, we had such a good time at the Dubai Garden Centre this morning. Let’s just say good for the first 3 hours, minus the last ten minutes when I had to literally pick a screaming 2-year old who did not […]

Summer at The Palace : Staycation at Emirates Palace Hotel Abu Dhabi

I’ve never been to the Emirates Palace. Seen it from above when we stayed at the Etihad Towers, but that’s as close as I’ve ever been. So when it was heating up this summer (you never get used to the heat…), and I was itching for a getaway with the family – I figured it […]

Spa and Pool Day @ Habtoor Grand Resort Dubai

So… it’s been a long time since we’ve been to a couples spa treatment. My neck and back has been aching since no.2 came along.Β I gave the Entertainer App a try, then went onto Cobone… and found this. 60 minutes spa treatment, plus pool and beach access for AED 229. That’s AED 460 for the […]

Best Breakfast Deal in the Marina : The Scene, Pier 7 Dubai

I hope they don’t ban us. I think we kinda took over the area this morning. Playmats out, babies on the floor (or literally, crawling everywhere), our prams parked to the corners (as neatly as we can), miscellanous pieces of food on the floor (I did try and pick up as much as I could […]

Moroccan Brunch @ Al Maeda, Doubletree Hilton JBR Dubai

I haven’t organised a group brunch for a long time….last one was end of last year – City Brunch atΒ the new Westin (which wasn’t all that great, that I couldn’t be bothered writing about it..). So few weeks ago when a friend was organising his birthday brunch, I thought I’ll put my hand up and […]

Palm Court Afternoon Tea @ Jumeirah Beach Hotel with Isme Elite

As much as I love reviewing food as part of an invitation (i.e free), I will have to admit that you can only truly experience the real deal when you head over as a paying guest. It’s quite upsetting when it’s from a brand close to heart. I sat on the fence on this one […]

A long-awaited breakfast @ La Serre Boulangerie Dubai

I have always wanted to go to La Serre. Every time we drove along Emaar Boulevard I’ll look over at the double storey floor to ceiling glass facade and it’s always full. From friends, and the bits and pieces of social media that I’ve seen – they do good food. U by Emaar launched a […]

Breakfast and a 40AED coffee @ Al Mandhar Lounge, Jumeirah Al Naseem

Ever since Jumeirah Al Naseem opened its doors to the public in December, I’ve always wanted to go check it out ….. and as I do, I waited to see if there would be any deals. They never joined the Entertainer (will they?), and I couldn’t wait anymore (wanted to take mum there) – so […]
