A very Dubai Christmas 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…

Tasty Noods

It’s not quite what you think. I love Japanese food. It is my favourite type of cuisine. I have very, very simple tastes. While I’ve found a few lovely Japanese restaurants here in Dubai (Motomachi springs to mind), it…

Gourmet by Kcal

Gourmet by Kcal is one of those hidden Dubai treasures. It’s tucked away down the side of the lobby of the Le Meridian Mina Seyahi, and it’s the sort of place you would wander right past, if you didn’t…

Common Grounds

I can’t believe I haven’t written a post on Common Grounds yet. Situated in the Mall of the Emirates, Common Grounds was the first cafe we visited the day we arrived in Dubai. It has delivered us tasty comfort…

I’m lazy. I’m not afraid to admit it. I get everything delivered to my door. I’m a strong advocate of online grocery shopping. I get most of my groceries delivered from Choithrams, and then pick up a few more…

Dairy-free Dubai

Note – not all the items on this list are strictly dairy free – some of them are low in lactose, or lactose free. Always be sure to check the ingredients before consuming. I just really needed a snappy…

One Life Kitchen and Café

I’ve already written about the Dubai Design District, the home of Craft Café and a new Japanese restaurant, Yui. My first visit to D3 was to visit One Life Kitchen and Café – and I wasn’t disappointed. One Life…

Craft Cafe

One of the best things about moving to a new country (or city) is the opportunity to try lots of new things. Back in Wellington, the best we could have hoped for was a new cafe or restaurant opening,…
