Mark and I were at the checkout counter in Carrefour when I felt a grumble in my stomach. It’s almost two hours past lunch time, that’s why. So after grocery shopping, we decided to grab a quick late lunch at Grk Fresh Greek which is just right across.
Do you know what's worse than having a sprained ankle? Having a sprained ankle on a weekend! Yes, I got a booboo a couple of weekends back that I had to skip work and stay at home the following day which is, to make it worse, a weekend.
I love staying in on weekends, I really do. I also have no issues with just lazing around at home. It's just that, weekends are also the time when I get to prepare some home-cooked dishes, for Mark and I to binge on while lazing around.
Because of Mark's dietary needs, I always get his approval before I accept invites for restaurant reviews. I need to make sure that the restaurant serves something that's okay for gym buffs like Mark.
But when I knew that Casa Pinoy is serving isaw, which I have been having a huge craving for since we got back to Dubai in January from our vacation in the Philippines, I just immediately had to say yes!
Whenever I'm craving some Khaleeji food, Logma always comes to mind. We've tried it a couple of times and have always went home with happy tummies. Located just right next to Logma, is their sister concept, Sukkar. There's a limited seating area (only one table) inside a bakery-like setting; and a laid back al fresco dining area which is perfect during Dubai winter; just not sure I'd be enjoying as much during summer, though.
An Arabic term for sugar, Sukkar specializes in Khaleeji sweets as well as contemporary desserts that are infused with local flavors and ingredients like saffron, rose, karak, and pistachio. Apart from desserts, they also offer specialty shakes and coffee, and hot and cold drinks.
