Early Dinner at Downtown Cafe in Al Karama



Downtown Cafe (DTC) got me really excited and curious at the same time when an invitation to try them out was sent to my email. With its namesake, I initially thought that a Burj Khalifa view or a Downtown Dubai view might be part of what the restaurant has to offer.

Iftar Preview at Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel



With only a couple of weeks left before Ramadan, aside from our Muslim brothers getting ready for this holy month, restaurants and hotels alike are also gearing up for their Iftar and Suhoor offerings—ranging from traditional feasts to lavish and extravagant ones.

Quick Bites: Bibimbap from Koryo



Bibimbap (/ˈbiːbɪmbæp/ BEE-bim-bap, from Korean bibimbap [pi.bim.p͈ap̚], literally "mixed rice"), sometimes romanized as bi bim bap or bi bim bop, is a Korean rice dish. The term “bibim” means mixing various ingredients, while the “bap” noun refers to rice. Bibimbap is served as a bowl of warm white rice topped with namul (sautéed and seasoned vegetables) and gochujang (chili pepper paste), soy sauce, or doenjang (a fermented soybean paste). A raw or fried egg and sliced meat (usually beef) are common additions. The hot dish is stirred together thoroughly just before eating.Wikipedia

Chalet Grill Plus, Al Barsha



With Dubai's sprawling selection of culinary destinations, it's really hard to pinpoint which is the best. Some claim that they are, while some say otherwise.

London Slide, Bluewaters Dubai



Our month took off with a good bao and slider fix when we dined at London Slide for dinner, a couple of weekends back.

Dinner with a View at Walnut Grove's Newest Branch in Dubai Mall



Nice ambience, good food, excellent service, and great views—I found them all at Walnut Grove's newest branch in Dubai Mall. Oh and their huge cake slices; I think I'm in love!

Egg-citing Breakfast at Raju Omlet



I've been seeing and hearing about Raju Omlet for quite some time. I've heard a lot of good feedback about their food, especially from my Indian friends. However, I haven't really had the chance to pay it a visit until recently.

Estrellas Rooftop Lounge, The Canvas Hotel



Dubai has a thriving night life. There are a lot of pubs and lounges here, most of which are in New Dubai. There are also some in Old Dubai (Bur Dubai) but only quite a few can boast about being classy. Estrellas is one of them. Mark and I have opposing opinions, but I totally loved the look and feel of Estrellas!

The Hungry Monkey Cocktail Lounge & Pub - Donatello Hotel, Al Barsha, Dubai



When I got an invitation to try this place out, its catchy name made me immediately say yes and I had been wanting to capture a "The Hungry Coach at The Hungry Monkey" photo since then. Hahaha!

Seedology in Al Wasl, Dubai



Have you ever been to a cafe which instantly made you happy? I have. It's actually during our visit in Seedology at Al Wasl in Dubai.

New Menu at Qwerty in Media One Hotel



Mark and I visited Qwerty a few weekends back to try their new menu. They have appointed a new chef, thus the menu revamp. It's our first time here, so we never really got to try their previous offerings, but I've heard a lot of good feedback about this restaurant and we were very much excited to try out their newest offerings.

Filipino Boodle Fight at The Daily in Rove Trade Centre



Filipino cuisine is probably one of the most underrated cuisines in the world. I don't wanna sound biased here but there's really a lot more to Filipino food than being salty, oily, or icky (as others may perceive).

Belgian Chocolate Goodness at The Choco Monarch



After the Play House Brunch, Erick and I met up with Nikki and Grace for some catching up over desserts. It's as if we didn't get to have desserts and weren't full from our brunch that we still got room for dessert. :p

Seafood Night at Fusion in Ghaya Grand Hotel



While the dining scene in Dubai is at its height on weekends because of brunches here and there, weekdays don't come far behind. Most of the hotel restaurants offer theme nights on weekdays—which is sort of a mini version of a weekend brunch and is mostly focused on a specific "theme" or cuisine each night.

Play House Brunch at Liwan Restaurant in Swissotel Al Ghurair



While there are a lot of brunch choices here in Dubai, only a few caters to the whole family, especially the kids. Some have dedicated kids' play area, yes, but nothing like the one that the Play House Brunch offers.

Boulevard Chic Brunch at Address Boulevard



Winter in Dubai is just around the corner and the brunch season has already started. It's been ages since I last experienced a Friday brunch and I've also never had the chance to catch up with Tonnee, a friend from high school, who's been here in Dubai for almost a year already; so when an invitation for a Friday brunch came my way, I immediately said yes and tagged my friend along.

Coffee and Tea with a View at Kava & Chai



Located at the heart of the heritage hub that is Al Seef, is a place which coffee and tea lovers will surely enjoyKava & Chai. A specialty coffee shop serving up freshly brewed coffee and tea, they also offer some healthy blends and bites, and pastries and desserts.

Premium Steaks from TGI Fridays



I don't usually frequent this side of Dubai, Dubai Festival City, that is; since it's far from my place (I live in Burjuman area). But for the past couple of months, you would most likely spot me in Dubai Festival City Mall every Friday. That is because I go to the gym with Mark at DFC Mall on Fridays. :p

Asian Street Food at Wok Boyz



I've always been in charge of our meal preps. From planning and grocery shopping, to cooking and packing—I do them all every single day. Yup, even on weekends.

Indian Street Food Fix at Roti Rollers in La Mer Dubai



Indian food, let alone Indian street food, tend to be too oily; at least that's what I observed. So as much as Mark and I enjoy having Indian food, it's not always our go-to cuisine if we're trying to eat healthy. And admittedly, though I was very eager to try Roti Rollers for our Saturday cheat meal, I was also hesitant since I knew Mark wasn't up for it.
