Nice place but incapable service: Bar 44 @ Grosvenor House (30. March 2019)

The Bar 44 was the last place to visit in the context of the short stay in Dubai – the final drink, if you want. And the final drink was the “Guatemalan Monkey” which reminded me of Trader’s Vic when served. Furthermore, the drink was fruity, sweet, and enjoyable What is definitely not as amazing […]

Delicious Lebanese food where you wouldn’t expect it: Al Falamanki Café (30. March 2019)

Delicious Lebanese food where you wouldn’t expect it: Al Falamanki Café (30. March 2019)

It helps to get a recommendation of a ‘quasi local’ to find the places you would probably usually not walk into and enjoy some proper Lebanese food. The Al Falamanki Café is a place which is crowded in the evenings and, therefore, not so much in the morning, respectively around lunch time. I went for […]

Tricky to get a table where you can enjoy a shisha: Siddharta Lounge By Buddha Bar @ Grosvenor House (29. March 2019)

Tricky to get a table where you can enjoy a shisha: Siddharta Lounge By Buddha Bar @ Grosvenor House (29. March 2019)

It is not easy to find a location which serves shisha as well as booze. The Siddharta Lounge is such a place but you should either book in advance or make sure they are at least not closed for a private event. However, when they are open, you have to insist to get a table […]

Atmospheric, decent food and loud: Buddha Bar @ Grosvenor House Dubai (28. March 2019)

The Buddha Bar is always a good place to enjoy a drink, some decent food and all that in a nice atmosphere. As a starter I went for the “Far East Julep (gin, shisho and mint leaves, agave, banana liquor, passion fruit, lychee)” (78 AED) which wasn’t anything like a Mint Julep (to which the […]

A decent breakfast buffet: Restaurant Sloane’s @ Grosvenor House Dubai (28. March 2019)

A decent breakfast buffet: Restaurant Sloane’s @ Grosvenor House Dubai (28. March 2019)

When you stay at the Grosvenor House I can definitely recommend you to have breakfast in the Sloane’s – the selection of dishes is quite extensive and you really find something for every gusto. Although there isn’t too much if you are interested in eating something local. But there is some hummus at least which […]

Surprisingly good tapas in the UAE: Restaurant Taperia @ The St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club (10. March 2018)

Surprisingly good tapas in the UAE: Restaurant Taperia @ The St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club (10. March 2018)

I was a bit skeptical to try the last restaurant in The St. Regis. The Taperia. I mean, why would you try Spanish tapas in an Arabian country? Well, it turns out that this is actually not a bad idea. I went for the “Albondigas a la Catalana (Catalan meatballs)” (32 AED) which were good […]

The one place which doesn’t fit the property: Restaurant Oasis @ The St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club (10. March 2018)

The one place which doesn’t fit the property: Restaurant Oasis @ The St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club (10. March 2018)

While my overall experience at all the restaurants in The St. Regis was a positive one, the Oasis is not really on a comparable level. The Oasis is the pool restaurant and frankly not really appealing in terms of layout and setup. However, they have a small little spot a bit on the side looking […]

Great grill skills: The Grill Pit @ The St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club (9. March 2018)

Great grill skills: The Grill Pit @ The St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club (9. March 2018)

The Grill Pit is an intense place – noisy, loud but full of life. I started with a non-meaty starter. The “avocado salad (avocado, asparagus, sun dried tomato pesto, green peppers, preserved lemon dressing)” (85 AED) didn’t look too appealing at first as the salad leaves were way too big to be palatable. And the […]
