Every time someone says “GF Ferre”, I imagine super skinny men and women with chiseled jawlines strutting their stuff down a ramp somewhere at the Dubai Design District. The last thing I can think of is food. There is in fact an emotion of immense regret that takes over. I feel guilty for the lastContinue reading “GF Ferre chocolate bar.”
Guest Review by Marina Wilhelmsson. Peyote is the name of a cactus that has no thorns, has a wonderful pink flower and has been known to be used as a drug. Maybe that is what made me choose it? 😉 Let me start off with the location. For me it was a bit of aContinue reading “Peyote. The Sauve Mexican”
Imagine my awkwardness when a friend visiting from abroad wanted me to suggest an Emirati restaurant which served authentic Emirati food and I couldn’t even come up with one name. It was actually quiet embarrassing, especially with me being a food blogger and all. “Where should I send him”, I thought. A shawarma restaurant maybe.Continue reading “Milas – An Emirati feast.”
Ibn Batuta mall was not the kind of place you would specifically go to for a meal. If you were in the mall doing your groceries or whatever, sure why not. At least that is what is what it used to be for me, until recently. Please don’t get me wrong, It’s not that theyContinue reading “Al Fresco dining at SOY, Ibn Batuta”

It took so long that I was worried it may not even be so cool by the time I got there. Literally. it wasContinue reading “Mad Hatter’s party, Sugar Factory.”
I am a huge Asha Bhosle fan, I am. Yes, I may have only hard a few of her songs but the ones that I have heard (four to be precise) are in my opinion some of the best Hindi songs ever produced. The first AB song I heard was ‘zara sa jhoom lun main’Continue reading “Asha’s”
Shakespeare and Co. is a stunning example of 16th century opulence. If I could give points for ambience and decor, this place would be up there in a league of its own. The deep red upholstery on top of plush cushion seating and the Elizabeth-esque chandeliers could easily have been from a scene of Juliet’s bedroom.
This was not a steaming pot of broth on an electric flame or a few pieces of sizzling meat on a gas grill. This was a fully functional, desi kabab grill, complete with skewers and red hot coal right in the middle of our table.
It’s not that I can’t sing. I’ve done it for most of my life and my ability does transcend genres, artists and even languages. It’s just that my friends and family have not been too receptive to my unique talent. So, the idea of a karaoke brunch didn’t really excite me too much or itContinue reading “Be a star at Lucky Voice!”
