Treej – La Mer

La Mer is the new beach side destination for food, fun and frolic. It’s great to see Emirati cuisine on the rise and being served at this beautiful location. Treej has some lovely antique looking interiors and ample seating indoors and on the terrace. I was here for lunch and it was a pleasant afternoon….

Chateau Blanc

I am not easy to please but the folks at Chateau Blanc made my afternoon just so beautiful and special! They have an amazing decor, fabulous food and impeccable service and are truly brilliant! Perfection is the middle name of this restaurant and every minute detail has been taken care of. I was here one…

Piadera Trade Centre Area

Piadera is a cafe serving some delicious dishes from the North Italian region. Before you can say that you have eaten a lot of Italian food in Dubai, you should know that Piadera serves some very exclusive dishes that I have not seen at all in any other Italian restaurants. These dishes include flatbread piadas,…

Volt Kitchen – Jumeirah

A pretty looking place in the heart of Jumeirah serving some great food and drinks, this black themed restaurant serves food across different cuisines. I have enjoyed the food at the Warqa branch and this one is a bigger, better version of that place. I was here one weekday afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed my experience….

Equestrian Lounge – St Regis Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club

As I kept driving towards the St Regis Hotel in the Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club, I was not sure of what this place would be like given that it was far far away from the hustle bustle of the city. When I arrived, I was pleasantly surprised to see such a beautiful property…

Eat Artisanal Bakery

True to its name this place totally stands out from the crowd. It’s a bakery and a lot more. The cafe is pretty with some great interiors, the food and drinks are fresh and healthy and the staff are friendly and helpful. We were served the freshly baked bread with home-made butter and pesto to…

State 88

This new gem in City Walk pleasantly surprised me with its absolutely fresh food and delicious menu. I just loved the concept of this being a State by itself having its own laws and rules (which you can see on their walls) which all the dishes on the menu abide by. The staff are efficient…

Entrecote Cafe de Paris Downtown Dubai

This restaurant seems very popular with tourists and residents. Now who does not visit Dubai Mall be it a tourist or someone living in Dubai (of course after cribbing about the traffic and parking), we all love the mall and it is to my surprise how I have crossed this restaurant so many times and…

Harper’s Bazaar Café

It’s not surprising that Harper’s Bazaar chose Dubai as their destination to open their first even venture into food. With Dubai being known for having the best and first of everything, the fashionable Harper’s Bazaar Cafe seems inspired. When fashion meets food, the outcome is definitely a fashionable place with some uniquely created food. The interiors…

1762 Stripped – JLT

As such the concept of cafe’s is to have a small and cozy place serving food all day but then when you are in Dubai, everything is big and the best ! This totally applies to 1762 – an awesome cafe with rustic interiors, plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, great food and decent service….

Paper Fig

An unassuming, pretty looking place in Moweleh area of Sharjah close to the Sharjah University. A once deserted area is now buzzing with life with residential and commercial buildings and some great line up of restaurants. We were told that this place is owned by a Emirati who is really passionate about the food served…

Local Bites

The all new Local Bites on Jumeirah road has some interesting dishes with a fusion of Emirati and Indo / Pak cuisine. The place is pretty basic with a majlis feel, giving you an at home feeling the moment you walk in. The staff are helpful and kind too. We called for a Jumeira Platter…
