Does The Collective prove more than just a buffet?

Another post that was long overdue, and I think I am highly in need of another meal here. The Collective, located in Grand Hyatt, Dubai is a fairly new place offering an all day buffet. Continue reading “Does The Collective prove more than just a buffet?”

Thai, Chinese, or Both?

This post is coming in a little later than usual, but I thought the timing could be perfect as Ramadan is just over and you can start planning where to head for brunch/lunch soon? 🙂

Located among the throng of restaurants at Wafi, Thai Chi serves Thai and Chinese cuisines for a lover of both Asian fares. Continue reading “Thai, Chinese, or Both?”

Jodhpur Royal Dining

Lined with rich textures of turquoise and lush chandeliers that hang low, Jodhpur Royal Dining is bound to take you back to the medieval era of India where exquisite interiors meet fine food while promising a molecular gastronomic experience. But what is molecular gastronomy? I keep seeing the term almost everywhere. The Internet tells me that it is “the application of scientific principles to the understanding and development of food preparation”. Continue reading “Jodhpur Royal Dining”

Iftar At The Constellation Ballroom – The Address, Dubai Marina

The Constellation Ballroom at The Address, Dubai Marina is probably the most underrated place in Dubai. Most find it helpful to rant/gloat about an experience on Zomato, however, I find just a handful of reviews for the place.

Shades of orange, pink and purple cover the ceiling and bathe the ballroom giving it a divine look. The entrance is lined with a red carpet making the guest feel royal, while the ballroom is decorated like a food bazaar.

#BuffetsAreGoodforHealth – Manzil, Downtown Dubai

Manzil, Downtown Dubai is one of the better Iftars offered this Ramadan (priced at AED 170) for an authentic and royal affair. We visited the hotel last year during the Holy Month and my thoughts are only on the basis of keeping that as a comparison. Continue reading “#BuffetsAreGoodforHealth – Manzil, Downtown Dubai”

Does Tresind impress?

I have to say, in the debate of buffet vs set menu, the latter surely wins for me.

This time, I headed to Tresind for a Suhoor menu, located at Nassima Royal Hotel after a kind invite from Fasseeha. Yes, this was a first for me. I have never accepted late night invites previously and well, I’m quite open to these now… Continue reading “Does Tresind impress?”

A Canadian Treat! – Weslodge, JW Marriott Marquis

Weslodge recently opened its doors to the public at JW Marriott Marquis, Business Bay. The opening was much awaited after the grand preview held for the media which served just a trailer of what the menu really offers. Since I couldn’t make it to the preview, I bagged a reservation on its second day! Yes, blogger advantages! Continue reading “A Canadian Treat! – Weslodge, JW Marriott Marquis”

Chef Stefano’s Table at Sicilia, Movenpick Ibn Battuta Gate

I have to say, I know quite little about the Movenpick hotels. The fact that I only got to know one existed as Ibn Battuta Gate when an invite popped into my inbox, bears testament to it.  Continue reading “Chef Stefano’s Table at Sicilia, Movenpick Ibn Battuta Gate”

Celebrating Norooz at Shabestan, Radisson Blu Hotel

I’ve been to Radisson Blu, Deira Creek so many times now that it’s become sort of like a second home.

The place boasts various highlights – restaurants of different cuisines, hospitable service and a gorgeous view of the Creek. You can even head down to the Abra for a little ride after your meal. Continue reading “Celebrating Norooz at Shabestan, Radisson Blu Hotel”
