Eating Out in Lisbon

We recently visited Lisbon for the first time. I’d never been to Portugal, and it was an interesting experience. While I absolutely loved the Azores and Porto, Lisbon didn’t quite do it for me. I’m not sure what it was. Whether it was the amount of people that offered to sell us drugs or the […]

Carnival

Carnival by Tresind

I hadn’t had the chance to eat at any Indian restaurants in Dubai, so I was pretty excited to be able to sample the Chef’s Tasting Menu at Carnival by Tresind. Located in the Dubai International Financial Centre in the Burj Daman building, Carnival offers ‘post-modern’ Indian, inspired by the various cultures influencing Indian cuisine. […]

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 […]
