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 […]

A truly local Middle Eastern experience – simple, but tasty: Restaurant First Cup Masaya (12. November 2022)

A truly local Middle Eastern experience – simple, but tasty: Restaurant First Cup Masaya (12. November 2022)

Frankly, the First Cup Masaya restaurant is probably not a place you’d normally visit, since it does not look too appealing. However, the place is actually quite nice if you get to sit outside since it’s comfortable, the staff is friendly and makes sure you get what you need, and takes care of you throughout. […]

Nice, but not exceptional Palestinian cuisine: Restaurant Mama’esh (12. November 2022)

I was looking for the best rated Middle Eastern restaurants in Dubai, and found the Mama’esh. And frankly, I’m not sure, I agree a 100%. Sure, the place is nice, and the food is good, but if this is one of the three best Middle Eastern restaurants, then I’m not sure, I see hope for […]

A great Middle Eastern buffet experience with a belly dancer and live music: Restaurant Amaseena @ Ritz Carlton (11. November 2022)

When I was looking for nice restaurants in Dubai (to which I hadn’t been yet), the Amaseena popped up. So, I was rather curious what kind of cuisine I was to expect. Since I was not really spending time informing myself, it turned out to be a buffet restaurant which live music and belly dancers. […]

A nice pool bar with good but expensive shisha: La Baie Lounge @ Ritz Carlton (11. November 2022)

A nice pool bar with good but expensive shisha: La Baie Lounge @ Ritz Carlton (11. November 2022)

The La Baie Lounge is also known as ‘Fuma’ on Google Maps, which is why I ended up there, since it was supposed to offer shisha. To eat, I went for the “White Miso marinated Salmon Slider (wasabi mayo, Asian slaw)” (80.00 AED), which were quite lovely and actually quite tasty to enjoy. The salmon […]

The most authentic Mexican cuisine in a long time: Restaurant Puerto 99 Mexican Cuisine (20. March 2021)

The most authentic Mexican cuisine in a long time: Restaurant Puerto 99 Mexican Cuisine (20. March 2021)

I had passed the Puerto 99 a few times and I actually tried to walk in before. But the place was always busy. And I understand why. So, usually, I’m quite skeptical when it comes to Mexican cuisine abroad as it is most often so far from the truth that it hurts. However, this is […]

Surprisingly delicious burgers – worth trying: Restaurant Ketch Up (19. March 2021)

Since I hadn’t booked anything in advance, it was kind of hard finding anything on a Friday evening. However, I ended up being lucky since one table was just vacated and I was able to take it over. The Ketch Up is actually a simple but nice place with a lovely location in Bluewaters. The […]

Definitely worth visiting for the experience and the atmosphere: Restaurant The London Project (18. March 2021)

Last time I’ve been to Bluewaters, I ended up catching Corona after. Therefore, I was somewhat not fond of returning to the area but as fate had it, I ended up there again. And I must say, The London Project is actually a very enjoyable location – it is atmospheric, nice in terms of interior […]
