Quick Vegan Noodle Bowl

I’ve been down with the flu and that has left me with no tastebuds for the time being. Eating is not really on my mind at this time, but to keep hunger away I do need to get into the kitchen to prepare a thing or two.

This time I found myself making a vegan noodle bowl instead of the comforting soup that I normally opt for. This noodle bowl is super easy and leaves you feeling full as well.

Dining In The Dark – Noire, Fairmont

Dubai is not unfamiliar with unique serving techniques. We’ve seen quirky combinations, the food trucks making an entry, trending avocado on toast and smoothie bowls, the lotus craze…well, the list goes on.

While these have become common to this city, we were recently made aware of the concept of dining in the dark which piqued our interest. How does one eat without the knowledge of where their dish is placed? What if we spill our drink, or worse, leave the restaurant only to find spots and stains on us? These thoughts buzz around our minds as we make our way to Noire – located in Fairmont Hotel.  Continue reading “Dining In The Dark – Noire, Fairmont”
