Friday Brunches in Dubai

Adventures in Dubai

It's More Fun in the Philippines

Get #Farzified at Farzi Cafe Dubai

Dubai is everything but ordinary—the buildings, the scenery, and even the restaurants—each has its own way of deviating from the mainstream. And when it comes to restaurants, is there any better way to stand out than featuring molecular gastronomy?

Molecular gastronomy is where science meets food. It has been on for years, but admittedly, I don't think I'd ever been to a restaurant which offers such. Well, there may be some which offers one or two dishes, but none which incorporates molecular gastronomy to almost every dish in their menu.


JustShouts: Shout, Listen, Review, Discover, Connect

Being a blogger, I've come to embrace the fact that my voice also counts, so I always make it a point to give honest and unbiased views and opinions. I always get giddy when I receive messages from my readers saying how they somehow get to "taste" what I ate just by the way I write.

But I must admit that, in as much as I'd love to, I still haven't mastered doing regular updates in this blog, and so this is where social media and local business rating apps and websites come in handy. With that I can just post a quick review about my experience and share photos of what I ate or where I went.

But then again, it also gets tedious and most of the time hinders the actual dining experience as I'd usually have to take note of every single detail of the experience. Plus, I'm still not sure how far my little voice gets heard, especially by the restaurant management for when I didn't really have a good experience.
Good thing JustShouts came into the scene. It's where you can shout, listen, review, discover, and connect with the world around you like never before!

Denny's in Dubai


While most restaurants in Dubai close down at midnight, some even earlier, it is but refreshing to know that an all-day diner exists. Denny's is an all-day American diner which has ventured its way to the Middle East, now having a couple of branches in Dubai.

They serve all-day breakfast, lunch, and dinner, milkshakes, and desserts, perfect for when you get those late night cravings or when you want some sweet fix in the wee hours.

HypoThai Brunch at Thiptara, The Palace Downtown


Another player in the Dubai brunch scene has just recently emerged and Mark and I got to sample their offerings in yet another remarkable #ZomatoMeetup. Special thanks to Zomato UAE and The Palace Downtown. Thank you for making Mark's first #ZomatoMeetup experience an awesome one! :)


Gringo Chicken and Ribs + Php1000 Voucher Giveaway (CLOSED)


Gringo-Chicken Ribs Friends is a newly opened Tex-Mex restaurant, and they can be located in SM North EDSA, The Block. Being a huge fan of Mexican cuisine, I got ecstatic and thrilled when I was asked to try out their dishes.


Tapas Friday Brunch at The Huddle


I must admit that it took me a while before I finally grasped how Friday brunches are just a usual thing in Dubai. But although Friday brunches are mainstream, each restaurant still has its own way of making their brunch standout.


Another member of Dubai's brunch scene is the newly launched Tapas Fridays at The Huddle Sports Bar and Grill in Citymax Hotels in Bur Dubai. Conveniently located in Al Mankhool, Bur Dubai, just a few blocks away from our place, Mark and I sampled a Spanish-style Friday brunch.

Soul and Jazz Night with Rouba at Muze


I've always thought of Dubai, being part of a Muslim country and the fact that alcoholic drinks are widely prohibited, as somewhat a monotonous and boring city especially in terms of its night life. But I was totally wrong. When it comes to night life, Dubai has got to be the liveliest night life scene. It definitely has a lot more to offer. I never thought that there are a lot of gastro pubs in Dubai, from the loud and lively pubs to the relaxed and chill ones.

I've mentioned before how I enjoy a lively crowd while sipping a glass of bubbly or cocktail drink, but of course it's also fun to just chill along with a soothing music and delicious food and drinks. And that is what I love about Muze. Located in Souk Al Bahar in Downtown Dubai, Muze combines the fine sounds of Latin, World, and Arabic fusion music in an eclectic and artistic setting.


Food Meets Art at the Art Breakfast in Dusty's


I'm sure all of you will agree that, at least once in your life, you found it tiresome to be waking up early for work, more so during weekends. But I bet all of you will also agree that you wouldn't mind waking up early to a breakfast like this, yeah?


Gastronomic Tour at Global Village


Mark and I went on a special food tour around the world in celebration of the Dubai Food Festival at the all-new and revamped Global Village. Will do a separate post about the new Global Village, watch out for that. :)


Together with other foodies, we sampled unique and delicious offerings from participating food kiosks. We started off our gastronomic tour with fresh fruits at Thai Fruits. Having been born and raised in another South East Asian country, the Philippines, I grew up having almost all the fruits that Thai Fruits offer.
