Located in Wasl Vita, in a quaint little corner is The Coffee Club. Walk in, and you’re met with the delicious scent of coffee wafting around the café. First impressions always matter, and I decide I’m going to fall in love with this place. Continue reading “The Coffee Club – Wasl Vita, Jumeirah”
Earlier, a dining experience would be measured by the taste of food and hospitality. Later, ambiance became an important factor. And now, interiors play a vital role in choosing where to dine. Continue reading “Breakfast Goals at Culinary Boutique”
Our recent breakfast was at Paper Fig, located in University City, Sharjah. What looks like a usual building from the outside, is a contrast with its interiors. Wooden walls which serve as a great backdrop for pictures, charming servers, and a vibe that’s somehow similar to Afternoon Tea places, Paper Fig became a fast favorite.

I’m not the smiling person you see…unless I’ve had my first cup of coffee. And when you are required to drive to Downtown Dubai and give a sweet smile to your server before you’ve had one, the thought seems almost impossible. Continue reading “Breakfast at Fumé, Downtown Dubai”
Mozzo Centrale, meaning “central hub”, is a restaurant aiming to offer an Italian culinary affair for its guests. I recently came to know of this place when an invite popped into my inbox. It’s perfectly located at Umm Suqeim, an area that is fast becoming popular for its restaurants. Continue reading “At The “Hub” – Mozzo Centrale, Umm Suqeim”
Let me tell you a story. A beautiful story about chocolate and cheese, who strived to be together but couldn’t until they were joined in the kitchen of Maward Patisserie. Continue reading “A Cheesy Meal – Maward Patisserie, Uptown Mirdif”
When you’re sent home a surprise cookbook with an invite attached, it obviously peaks your curiosity! That’s just the way Dean and Deluca did it. And I was glad to be invited to a wonderful opening. Continue reading “Dean & Deluca Is Back With A Bang!”
I love how cafés are coming up in Dubai. There’s one at every corner, and though all of them might not be the best, there are some that really catch your attention. A café usually serves coffees with a few selection of pastries. But this has changed now with menus that almost imitate a full-fledged restaurant. Continue reading “Lounging At Café Italiano”
Crumble has made quite a name for itself in a short time. For those who don’t know, Crumble is the revamped version of what used to be a cafe by the name of Roti Mum. Continue reading “Back with a Bang! – Crumble”
I was recently invited by Appetite – The Shop to try their delicious healthy food. Since the place closes down by 6 PM, it was proving difficult for me to personally head to their locations in Al Quoz and Business Bay. Therefore, delivery to the rescue!
The manager at Appetite was kind enough to deliver the order at my workplace. And I have to tell you, their packing is so so well done! I ordered a Mac n Cheese (wondering how this is healthy?) Cajun Chicken & Guacamole wrap and Thai Chicken Curry.
From these, my favourite was the Thai Chicken Curry. I’m not usually a fan of Thai curries, but this one was appetizing as it didn’t have that strong coconut flavour that the usual ones have. This was served on a bed of rice. The portion is quite a lot and is enough for one person if they don’t plan to eat for the next 5-6 hours.
Sadly, I found the wrap a bit too dry for my taste. It was also too big to finish and quite stuffed with a lot of chicken and cheese.
For drinks, we had the Summer Fiesta and Basil Lemonade. Quite different flavours from the usual ones I order. I preferred the Summer Fiesta more. With flavours like raspberry, blueberries, apple juice and ginger. It had a very sweet – tangy taste with the sharp flavour of ginger. Different to my taste buds, but I enjoyed it.
Lastly, for dessert, we chose a Home baked Carrot Cake and cute muffins stuffed with date paste and raisins.
Not being a fan of dates, I preferred that the least. The carrot cake made up for it, though! It reminded me of the one served at Starbucks. The cake was moist and juicy, with the walnuts providing a nice crunch in the middle.
From the pictures online, I can see that Appetite is quite a nice place to have a piece of cake and a cup of coffee. Since it’s located in Bay Avenue, it can serve as a prime location for office goers to stop by for a quick meal.
Hungryoungwoman recommends the Thai Chicken Curry, Summer Fiesta drink, Mac n Cheese is you’re a fan of a lot of cheese (who isn’t?) and their carrot cake which is a must try!
