Relaxation with a shisha – and patience: Equestrian Lounge @ The St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club (19. January 2018)

Every Polo club seems to have an Equestrian Lounge – something I wasn’t aware of until recently. The place is located in the middle of the St. Regis in a little atrium so it becomes a bit chilly in the evening. The service is attentive and very friendly overall. However, the coordination is not really […]

Outstanding brunch in a unique setting: The St. Regis Polo Brunch @ The St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club (19. January 2018)

Friday brunches are a big thing in the Middle East and Dubai isn’t any short in that regard. Upon checking in, I was invited by the Front Office Manager to enjoy their brunch. Quite a generous offer in the first place as the brunch with the regular alcohol accounts for 425 AED which is quite […]

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)

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) […]

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

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 […]
