Exquisite for a late-night shisha and a tasty bite: Buddha-Bar Beach Abu Dhabi @ The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort (8. December 2022)

The “madras curry chicken bao buns (hoisin sauce, pickle cucumber, and carrot)” (75.00 AED) are overall quite delicious. The bite is a rather small one, but it is an enjoyable bite. They have the size of a mouthful and are just perfect in terms of size, but also great in terms of flavour. The “uchu […]

Much better Italian food than I had expected and quite atmopsheric: Restaurant Signor Sassi (7. December 2022)

Much better Italian food than I had expected and quite atmopsheric: Restaurant Signor Sassi (7. December 2022)

The Signor Sassi had been recommended to me, but, since it is an Italian restaurant, I wasn’t intrigued to visit it as a priority. However, I must say, I was quite positively surprised with the experience here. We shared a few different starters like the “tricolore salad (avocado, tomato, mozzarella)” (85.00 SAR) which was relatively […]

Great dishes, lovely atmopshere, but way too slow: Restaurant Naya @ voco Riyadh, an IHG Hotel (6. December 2022)

Since we were looking for something close with a decent rating, we ended up at the Naya in the voco Riyadh, where I had the pleasure to dine my very first evening. Once you’re seated, and you’ve placed your order, you have to be patient. Eventually, you are served some nibbles like “bread, veggie sticks, […]

A Turkish steakhouse consistently serving great meat: Restaurant Chef Boutique (5. December 2022)

Given I was a bit lazy to go out and discover new places, I decided to give the Chef Boutique another try, and went, surprise, surprise, for the “hummus (chickpeas with tahini sauce and lemon)” (SAR 30.00) again. And it was as good as the first time. On top of that, I had asked for […]

Quite an average shisha lounge not worth visiting: Almusafer Lounge (4. December 2022)

On my way from the Porterhouse to the hotel, I was looking for a Shisha lounge and found the Almusafer Lounge. While its ratings were somehow a bit average, I thought I’d still give it a try. However, after having visited the place, I understand why the ratings are a bit average. I went for […]

Apparently No. 37 of MENA’s 50 Best Restaurants: Restaurant Porterhouse (4. December 2022)

Since the Restaurant Porterhouse is apparently No. 37 of the World’s 50 Best in the Middle East, I decided to give this place a try. The fact that it was also recommended to me by a colleague added to the curiosity to go try it. Once you’re seated, you’re served “bread and a butter candle”. […]

A surprisingly good steakhouse where you wouldn’t expect it: Restaurant Chef Boutique (3. December 2022)

During my previous stays, I’ve only always seen the restaurant name from the outside, but haven’t actually discovered it inside. It took me a bit to find out where the place is located, and finally managed to get the entrance. The place was crowded since it was showing the soccer cup in Qatar. However, since […]

Still a good place for a quick and tasty business lunch: Restaurant Bärengasse (2. December 2022)

The Restaurant Bärengasse remains a great place for a quick business lunch, since they offer good food for fair prices and relatively swift service. I went for the “Parmesan soup with autumn truffle” (CHF 17.00) as a starter, which was quite nice since it has a smoothing flavour profile and really coated your mouth with […]
