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 at 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 […]

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 […]

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.

An Izakaya addition to JBR : Ramusake Dubai

I get excited when it comes to Japanese food. Back home, we go to my favourite yakitori bar for a skewer or two with a ice cold glass of umeshu, and frequent the many izakaya bars scattered around town. When we moved to Dubai, I was somewhat disappointed that though there are quite a few […]

“Brazilian Independance Day” @ Fogueira, Ramada Plaza JBR

Last Tuesday, when I was back in good ol’ Dubai for a few days, we were invited to celebrations at Fogueira in Ramada Plaza for the Brazilian Independance Day.  We’ve never been to the 35th floor of the Ramada Plaza, although we’ve been to Speakeasy downstairs a few times for brunch and dinners. It’s somewhat […]

Breakfast Date @ Sushi Art, The Beach

Back in Dubai, woohoo. Hello, sandstorm. How I missed you so. So this morning, whilst in discussions with a friend on where to go for late brekky, she had suggested Sushi Art in The Beach. As I always do, I took out the app and checked if there were any vouchers. None? O no, we […]
