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) […]

Typical airport food – not great: Restaurant Carluccio’s Airport C3 (27. December 2017)

I only saw Carluccio’s once in the Dubai Mall and didn’t enter it. Given I had an hour to spend at the Dubai airport before connecting to my next destination, I decided to give it a try and the start was quite a pleasant one – the “grissini with basil butter” were nicely crispy and […]

Atmospheric healthy lunch: Restaurant Gourmet by Kcal @ Le Méridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina (18. December 2017)

Kind of accidentally, I ended up at the same restaurant for lunch as I have been to for breakfast. And I must say, it is a good choice for lunch as well. As a starter I had the “Mezzeh Platter (basil hummus, moutabbel, sweet potato hummus, roasted red capsicum and walnut dip, traditional hummus, mixed […]

Additionally, you find a good selection of different cereals … … […]

Decent Executive Lounge @ Le Méridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina (17. December 2017)

The selection of dishes at the Le Méridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina Executive Lounge is quite decent but still limited. At least you get some food throughout the whole day. Most of the day just a variety of different sandwiches are offered which stuff the tummy but are not really a revelation in […]

Live jazz bar @ La Mer: HQ’S 459 Headquarters (16. December 2017)

The HQ’S 459 Headquarters is located in the new La Mer area which has recently been built up and is actually quite lovely. It is a bit of a walk from the parking area to the actual area with restaurants and bars but it is still worth it. Just make sure to bring a jacket […]
