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 […]

Definitely a hyped place – not worth the visit: Restaurant #SaltBae Burger DIFC (17. March 2021)

Since I’ve paid Nusr-et a visit, it was also time to pay it’s other joint a visit – called #SaltBae Burger. And in all fairness, it’s definitely a hyped place. I mean, the “beef tacos (slow roasted beef ribs, guacamole, tomato salsa, home-made spicy sauce, sour cream)” (AED 130) looked decent but, of course, didn’t […]

A mixture of Latin American flavors – but a tasty one: Restaurant Toro Toro @ Grosvenor House Dubai (15. March 2021)

A mixture of Latin American flavors – but a tasty one: Restaurant Toro Toro @ Grosvenor House Dubai (15. March 2021)

I’m often skeptical when it comes to eating Latin American food somewhere else in the world as the flavors are so often so different from the originals. And I’m not saying that Toro Toro manages to match these one to one, but what is offered here, is actually surprisingly close to the real deal. The […]

Delicious meat where you wouldn’t necessarily expect it: Restaurant Chicago Meatpackers Dubai (14. March 2021)

Somehow I was craving meat that night and the Chicago Meatpackers was recommended by the very competent concierge at the W Dubai – The Palm, Angélica. I was, admittedly, skeptical since it was at The Pointe which seemed like a collection of restaurants which were more there for the fun of it than really being […]

A great bargain and surprisingly tasty food: Restaurant Zengo @ Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort & Spa (12. March 2021)

A great bargain and surprisingly tasty food: Restaurant Zengo @ Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort & Spa (12. March 2021)

What is great about the Zengo is the view from the balcony terrace since it allows you to sit outside and enjoy the surroundings accordingly. And, therefore, it’s perfect to start everything off with a “Yuzu Gimlet” (60 AED) which was refreshing and disappeared quite quickly. Now, the “Zengo set menu” (250 AED) is where […]

The perfect place to create a memorable evening: Restaurant Weslodge Saloon (11. March 2021)

When you’re not only greeted by good food but also by amazing service, that makes a memorable evening. And I had such an evening at Weslodge Saloon on the 68th floor of the JW Marriott. If you are lucky, you get a table by the windows so you actually see outside – but even if […]
