Eating My Way ‘Round the World

I’ve said it many times – I’m not a foodie. I don’t eat particularly fancy food, and I don’t have a sophisticated palate. What I do have is a love of travel, and exploring new food and cuisine experiences as part of that travel. I’ve spent many years eating my way ’round the world, and […]

Healthy Eats in Dubai

It’s well known that Dubai has something like 20,000 eateries. I’d say around 10,000 of those claim to serve healthy food, without really having any idea what the concept means. Some of the lists of ‘healthy’ options are rather interesting…. would you call a place that only serves giant brioche cheeseburgers and freak shakes a […]

A Night Out at MINA Brasserie

I’m no food expert. Let’s make that perfectly clear. I like to eat, but I’m not a connoisseur. If anything, I’m slightly picky, which tends to keep me from the really exotic foods on offer here in Dubai. I’m kind of like a 12 year old child stuck in an adult body. So, when my […]

A Very Dubai Christmas (Brunch) at the Waldorf Astoria

 The Dubai brunch. It is a ex-pat mainstay, and every weekend you can find Brits-abroad getting tipsy and embarrassing themselves in public. They are expensive, rowdy, and they can get messy fast. We not really brunch people. However, it was our first Christmas in Dubai. I’m basically the world’s worst cook. Matt’s sister was visiting […]

Gold on 27 at the Burj Al Arab

When deciding where to have High Tea in Dubai with mum, it really boiled down to two choices – the Burj Al Arab, or the Burj Khalifa. In the battle of the Burjs, it was Khalifa that won. You just can’t beat High Tea at 122 stories. However, mum still wanted to see the famed […]

ATMOSPHERE

La Gourmandizes at the At.Mosphere Lounge, Burj Khalifa

I’ve been a little busy lately. My mum came to visit all the way from New Zealand, so we decided to do a few special things. One of those was high tea. After tossing up between the Burj Al Arab Afternoon Tea and the various events on offer up the Burj Khalifa, we opted for […]

Dessert

Dessert at Al Bayt, The Palace, Downtown Dubai

I like to pretend that I have a world of knowledge about all the interesting places to eat and drink in Dubai. In reality, when some friends and I decided to go out for dessert this week, I just used google. A search for ‘dessert Downtown Dubai’ led me to Al Bayt, in the Palace […]
