Still a lovely place – but full of mosquitos: Restaurant Toko @ Vida Hotel (31. December 2017)

To the good places you always return – I, therefore, decided to pay the Toko a visit again. I tried the “Edamame with steamed sea salt” (22 AED) again and still liked it. What is great besides the taste is the fact that they are really making sure that simple dishes are served in no […]

A bit different than usually: Le Royal Club Lounge @ Le Méridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre (31. December 2017)

A bit different than usually: Le Royal Club Lounge @ Le Méridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre (31. December 2017)

The breakfast at the Le Royal Club Lounge is a bit different than most club lounges in Starwood hotels. You do not get to pick your food from a buffet (respectively only partially) but you are actually served by a menu which is definitely a nice change. When it comes to interior design, the place […]

Overrated French: Restaurant La Petite Maison (30. December 2017)

I had high expectations for La Petite Maison as it was recommended to me by a friend who is a real foodie but I must say I was not entirely persuaded of the place. The food was without doubt very good. The “carpaccio de sériole du Japon (yellowtail with avocado and citrus dressing)” (110 AED) […]

Nice shisha place with great fresh fruit juice: Restaurant Warak Enab (29. December 2017)

Nice shisha place with great fresh fruit juice: Restaurant Warak Enab (29. December 2017)

Given, the hotel didn’t offer any sisha, it was time to walk a bit and find a place which serves shisha and the Warak Enab does. The “Double Apple Shisha” which came with an offer of 25% off (so, 5.250 JOD instead of 7.000 JOD) was nice. However, the shisha guy didn’t do too good […]

Experience the true local thing: مطاعم عمّان الكبرى aka Great Amman Restaurant (29. December 2017)

The place is one I would never have entered if it wasn’t recommended to me. The driver who took us to Petra for the day, told me about this place, so I decided to give it a try. It is incredibly simple in terms of decoration, i.e. there is none and language is a barrier […]

A true Jordanian dish to be tried – Mansaf: Restaurant Sufra (28. December 2017)

A true Jordanian dish to be tried – Mansaf: Restaurant Sufra (28. December 2017)

The Sufra has been recommended to me as one of the restaurants which serve local food in a nice atmosphere – and that you should book a table in advance. Turns out he was right as the place was very crowded. Luckily though, we were able to get a table and indulge in some of […]

Very decent breakfast selection and good service: The Spice Garden Restaurant @ Sheraton Al Nabil Hotel (28. December 2017)

I had read a couple of reviews about The Spice Garden restaurant which weren’t very ‘friendly’ with the restaurant but I can frankly not agree. The place is relatively large and while not each waiter is equally competent, they were all incredibly friendly and helpful – something I would not have necessarily expected to be […]

Great club lounge offering: Sheraton Club Lounge @ Sheraton Al Nabil Hotel (27. December 2017)

The food selection in the Sheraton Club Lounge at the Sheraton Al Nabil Hotel is one of the better lounge food offerings I’ve had in a while. You can find fresh fruit as well as … … a selection of fresh vegetables and … … Arabic delicacies like hummus … … but also quite an […]
