Asado – Palace Downtown

There’s a reason I can never turn vegetarian – my undying love for meat. Dubai is home to a number of steakhouses, specializing in exceptional cuts and varieties that even a person who prides himself on being a meat connoisseur, would be amazed.  Continue reading “Asado – Palace Downtown”

Dining at Ronda Locatelli

This wasn’t our first time at Atlantis, The Palm, we are no strangers to its impeccable hospitality and its grand aura, yet every visit is always like the first time.

This time we were dining at Ronda Locatelli, which is under the acclaimed Michelin star Chef Giorgio Locatelli. Swatches of brown and orange decorate the place, and the ambiance is somewhat still and a little uncomfortable. Fortunately, the weather is pleasing outside and we decide to settle there.

What’s cooking at Cucina?

It is no uncommon feat that a new restaurant opens its doors in Dubai every now and then. But what happens to those already prevailing, you may ask. They get sidetracked by the new, trendy ventures which almost have no authenticity of the cuisine served at all. It is when hidden gems that deserve so much more are lost and never heard of. This is a story similar to that of Cucina, located at JW Marriott Hotel Dubai. Continue reading “What’s cooking at Cucina?”

Brunch Review: Accents -Intercontinental, Dubai Marina

We are suckers for brunch on weekends. It gives us an excuse to wake up late and spend those lazy hours eating. There’s a whole page dedicated to brunch spots in Dubai, which you can visit here.

So last weekend, we headed to the Funusual Brunch at Accents, Intercontinental Hotel. The brunch promises multi cuisine food on display, some live stations, and booze, of course, like how the meal is done here. All for a price of AED 445. (AED 295 for soft beverages is the one we opted for) Continue reading “Brunch Review: Accents -Intercontinental, Dubai Marina”

Fine Dining or Casual Eatery? Bread Street Kitchen, Atlantis

When Gordon Ramsay announced the opening of his new restaurant, Bread Street Kitchen (BSK), last year, many of us who have been watching the Chef on our television sets from childhood, rejoiced. Gordon, who is popular for starring in Hell’s Kitchen and Masterchef is also the owner of BSK in London.

The venture here is situated in Atlantis, The Palm which needs no introduction to anyone living in the U.A.E. The restaurant hosted full tables with most of the crowd from The West, we could also spot a couple of tables with Arabs seated. Not bad for a weekday! Continue reading “Fine Dining or Casual Eatery?

Dining with a View – Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel

Our first dine out after a long vacation was to Park Regis located in Burjuman housing the famous Kris with a View, a restaurant that offers beautiful scenic views of Dubai.
