Perfect place for an evening shisha and drink: Garden on 8 @ Media One Hotel (22. February 2018)

It is a bit more than 1.5 years ago since I have been to the Media One Hotel on the Garden on 8 where they were celebrating something like Oktoberfest. Finally, it was time to return and in the evening the pool area is just amazing. The “Double Apple Shisha” (95 AED) is to be […]

Healthy food in a nice atmosphere: Restaurant Circle Café (22. February 2018)

Healthy food in a nice atmosphere: Restaurant Circle Café (22. February 2018)

The Circle Café offers you a healthy lunch option close to the Marina. The “Edamame (seasoned Japanese beans)” (14 AED) are pretty regular but good. The “Beef Burger (beef patty, iceberg lettuce, cheddar cheese, pickles, tomato jam, caramelized onion jam and mushroom sauce)” (62 AED) served with “Za’atar Fries” (26 AED) was definitely better than […]

Great view with tasty dishes: Restaurant Namu @ W Hotel (21. February 2018)

There are not too many options in the W in Dubai but the Namu is a great way to enjoy your dinner. I started with a “Baekjool – Indomitable Spirit (soju, pomegranate syrup, cucumber bitters)” (65 AED) mainly because it is something I haven’t tried before. And it was a bit too much of a […]

A great new location but on the pricey side: Restaurant Iris (19. February 2018)

A great new location but on the pricey side: Restaurant Iris (19. February 2018)

I have heard so much about Iris as one of the new upcoming places. And frankly, I understand why. Given the availability of things in Bahrain, the Iris is a great location. After some initial back and forth in terms of what we wanted to order, the waiter took our order and marched off. The […]

Definitely the slowest service there is: Furn Bistro & Bakery @ The Westin Bahrain City Centre (19. February 2018)

Definitely the slowest service there is: Furn Bistro & Bakery @ The Westin Bahrain City Centre (19. February 2018)

Somehow I end up going back to the Furn Bistro & Bakery. And I get why as the food is good but frankly, the speed of service sucks. You have to wait a solid 30 minutes before any food is served. And that although the place is pretty much empty! I mean, why? The “soup […]

Decent mezzeh but disappointing burger: Restaurant Oléa @ The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort (17. February 2018)

Decent mezzeh but disappointing burger: Restaurant Oléa @ The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort (17. February 2018)

Given no restaurant was serving food during the afternoon in The St. Regis besides the ‘famous’ breakfast restaurant Oléa, I decided to eat something here. The “Cold Mezzeh (hummus, moutabel, tabouleh, fattoush, warak inab and pickled vegetables, marinated olives, muhammara, labneh served with Arabic bread)” (90 AED) was quite okay. The “Grilled ‘Prime Beef Burger’ […]

Chef’s Table – a unique experience: Restaurant 55 & 5th Grill @ The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort (16. February 2018)

The Restaurant 55 & 5th has come up with a new idea when it comes to dining – the Chef’s table. Which means that you are literally seated in the kitchen right next to the chefs and you get to watch all of it in its intensity, smell and sound. The menu this day was […]

One of the best Bloody Mary’s ever: The Manhattan Lounge @ The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort (16. February 2018)

The signature drink at the St. Regis is always some version of a Bloody Mary. And in The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort it is “The Arabian Snapper (The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Abu Dhabi) – Russian Standard Platinum vodka, tomato juice, za’atar, cumin powder, Angostura bitters, Tabasco sauce, Worcestershire suace, ground pepper and lemon […]
