Brunch Outside Dubai: Cove Rotana (Gourmed Basilico)


Welcome to the mini Greece of the UAE! Having friends who work in the hospitality industry gets me access to visit beautiful places like The Cove Rotana Resort in Ras Al Khaimah. But obviously, you gotta get a glimpse of the place first for you to know what I am talking about so here it is:


Brunch Outside Dubai: Fujairah Rotana (Waves Easter Brunch)

Fujairah Rotana sure made it fun during their Easter Brunch at Waves Restaurant!
Have you ever had the craving for a different kind of brunch than the usual in Dubai?  That's exactly how I felt when I decided to take this trip to Fujairah Rotana for their Easter Brunch at Waves Restaurant.

The usual brunch set up in DXB can sometimes feel repetitive and uneventful. What better way of making the Easter season extra special than trying out something new along with great people, and so off I went with my blogger friends, we explored another wonder in the UAE - Al Aqah Beach in Fujairah.




Here’s A Secret: I Never Really Liked Dining Out!

All of us may agree that the UAE has undergone the "delivery revolution" and is an evolution from the times when everything was ordered in stores for take-out or so we call "to go". And unlike in most places in the world, here you can have almost anything delivered at your doorsteps, food, beverage, a car battery, new tires, your laundry, groceries (at a minimum cost) and even professional services like party hosts and entertainers via phone or online. Try ordering a clown; you’ll be amazed that this is possible!

Taste Of Canada - Where To Get Fresh Canadian Beef and Goodies In Dubai


A portion of this juicy Canadian beef went to my tummy right after that hot air balloon experience from Landrover. An invite to attend Taste of Canada to experience different Canadian delights at The Ritz Carlton JBR came in and who am I to say no?

My nth Instameet this year. Since I have missed #WWIM13 , I made sure I reserved the whole weekend to meet and interact with the community. We were up as early as six in the morning of the 17th, ready and all geared up so we can take as much creative photos as we can.

If you think this post is about cars, no it is not. This is a food review and here in Dubai, you can easily connect cars with food because there's always a common ground for everything. Wait... what?

Finding The Best Eggs (For Breakfast) That Will Never Break Your Heart

I confess: aside from my thing for walls, doors, windows and food, I have a thing for eggs. Not the kind of egg that breaks your heart into pieces but eggs that actually make somebody else's morning - the breakfast eggs.

And Downtown Dubai is a great spot for an early egg hunting.  Come search for best breakfasts in Dubai and you will easily come across several restaurants located at the Centre of Now. This means, a handful of eggs, of different recipes and flavours, from different countries, is waiting to be discovered.

Along with a few blogger friends (Lady, Doc Gelo, Myla, and Kriska), we crawled the stretch of Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard to search for the best breakfast eggs being offered in Downtown Dubai. What we found is more than just a plate.

Iftar At Lemon Pepper Radisson Blu Downtown


Iftar budget options

Just one more week before the Eid Holidays here in Dubai and I'm still getting invites for Iftar. It seems like I haven't really left the travel and tourism industry after all, the only difference is that I get these invites for the love of something - food and blogging.

Trying Out Iraqi Cuisines At Kabab Erbil Al Rigga

You know what I like about Dubai? You get to explore options for food and trying out cuisines from other parts of the world is one of my game. Good thing I'm surrounded with friends who also fancy dining out and hunting hole-in-the-wall restaurants, we found ourselves lost in the streets of Al Rigga.

Looks like a dessert made by a pro? Ha! I made them myself! If you've been following my blog, you might have came across a post I did on how to recycle your left over chocolates for Christmas. This one's a different recipe though because (obviously) it's not yet Christmas but what we are trying to do is to raise awareness for breast cancer.

A long overdue post before I hit the road. Oh, hello Dubai and say hello to my friends Tareq, Tamim, and Deanne. We call our mini-family "Ganoush Fambam". These people are the guys I consider my family because it feels like home whenever I am with them. A common thing that keeps us together is food - which I love the most!
