Not much has changed into 2018: Restaurant Persian Garden (2. January 2018)

Once a month, it’s “Persian time” and it was time in the very beginning of the year. I went, as always, for the “hummous” which was fine as always. I think, they slightly pimped their “salad” as it now also comes with cabbage, so you have a decent selection of all kinds of different vegetables […]

Fine for breakfast, better for dinner: Furn Bistro & Bakery @ The Westin Bahrain City Centre (2. January 2018)

Fine for breakfast, better for dinner: Furn Bistro & Bakery @ The Westin Bahrain City Centre (2. January 2018)

So far, the Furn was just a dinner place for me but turns out they also offer breakfast. And while the Westin is definitely better than the Le Méridien in terms of their hotel rooms, this is not so true for the breakfast. The breakfast at the Furn is rather limited in terms of selection. […]

A lovely place to relax in the afternoon: Epona Lounge @ Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club (1. January 2018)

A lovely place to relax in the afternoon: Epona Lounge @ Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club (1. January 2018)

It is always good when you’re shown around by a local – as else I’m pretty sure I would have never ended up at the Dubai Polo Equestrian Club. The Epona Lounge is nice but has – due to the horses – a bit too many flies for my gusto. However, the “Coco Rosemary (coconut […]

Amazing New Year’s lunch: Restaurant Sea Fu @ Four Seasons Jumeirah (1. January 2018)

Amazing New Year’s lunch: Restaurant Sea Fu @ Four Seasons Jumeirah (1. January 2018)

What a way to start the new year – a “Tokyo Mule (Ketel One, Martini Rosato, lemon juice, ginger, tumeric, ginger ale)” (65 AED) is definitely a great choice and in the Sea Fu even more so as you are located right next to the beach and you get to enjoy the Dubai sun! The […]

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

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)

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 […]
