Ibn AlBahr – Club Vista Mare, Palm Jumeriah

Club Vista Mare is one of my favourites of the newer developments in Dubai. A waterfront, promenade-like row of licensed restaurants spanning from Ethiopian cuisine to a traditional “Tap House”? What’s not to love? I’d been invited to go to Ibn AlBahr a few weeks ago, but it was one I wanted to save until the weather was better, so now that winter is upon … Continue reading Ibn AlBahr – Club Vista Mare, Palm Jumeriah

Lime Tree Cafe – Al Quoz, Dubai

Today’s action-packed review will be just like me – short, but sweet. Whilst waiting for our poor dog’s fur to be massacred by the brutes at Shampooch, the wife and I popped into the Emirate-famous, Lime Tree Cafe for a spot of breakfast in Al Quoz. Established in 2001, this home-grown concept has grown into a well-respected spot to enjoy healthy breakfasts and tasty sandwiches … Continue reading Lime Tree Cafe – Al Quoz, Dubai

Eat Well – Zabeel 1, Dubai

Food writing is terrible when you have a constant battle with your weight. Since I began a year ago, I put on 10kg in a 6 month period. When stepping foot on the scales after Christmas, I knew I needed to do something about it, so I stopped weekday drinking and sought out healthy food on a lunchtime – thankfully, I’ve managed to lose most … Continue reading Eat Well – Zabeel 1, Dubai

Common Grounds – Mall of the Emirates, Barsha, Dubai

Common Grounds has been a firm favourite of mine over the last couple of years (or however long it’s been open). It’s always busy, they serve decent coffee and the food is relatively healthy, fresh and tasty. I’ve been working through the restaurants on the new floor during that time, but it’s the only place that I’ve returned to; the pizza place served me a … Continue reading Common Grounds – Mall of the Emirates, Barsha, Dubai

La Farine – JW Marquis Marriott, Business Bay, Dubai

The more I add content to my little food website, the more I realize that it’s far, far more entertaining to write (and from the viewers experience, read) about bad food experiences than good ones. The bad reviews are the ones that get shared, spark discussion, drive traffic and although the good ones provide valuable insight and suggestions for where to eat, they’re just a … Continue reading La Farine – JW Marquis Marriott, Business Bay, Dubai

Falafel Farm – Business Bay – Dubai

I’ve never been a huge fan of falafel. An old colleague once took me to a place in Sharjah that does “the best falafel in the world!” and I found it dry, too packed with parsley, oily and pretty boring. So recently, I thought I’d give it another go and took a few colleagues to Falafel Farm, a place round the corner of my office … Continue reading Falafel Farm – Business Bay – Dubai
