Last Friday, we tried out the award-winning London Social brunch at Caravan restaurant, located on the ground floor of glitzy Ritz Carlton at JBR Dubai.
When it comes to an authentic Pakistani meal, Barbeque Delights always comes up as a family restaurant I’d recommend. I’ve dined at their Downtown Dubai branch a number of times and was recently invited to visit their newest branch at The Walk, JBR.
It was a lazy Friday afternoon, and armed with two girlfriends and two kiddies in tow, we ordered an entire table-full of divinely delicious delicacies.
Taking inspiration from the beauty of Islamic art and calligraphy, the beautiful interiors of Bab Al Mansour transports its diners to an exotic palatial setting in faraway Morocco.
Located on Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard in downtown Dubai, opposite the Dubai Opera, the restaurant specializes in both Moroccan and Turkish cuisines and all the ingredients used are sourced from organic-certified farms of Morocco.
We stepped into the gilded doors of Bab Al Mansour a few weeks back, and were greeted by a young man in a deep blue ethnic robe with a warm smile and hot cups of sweet Moroccan tea.
Dining at Wok & Co at Ibis Central is nothing short of magical. Apart from my love for their wide range of Pan-Asian favorites, the interiors of this restaurant are absolutely spectacular. I’ve dined here a number of times for dinner, and love their cozy, dimly lit booths that make for a perfect date night setting, and I was recently back for a lunch catchup with a friend. The place takes on a different beauty flooded in the sunlight.
Ever-popular Purani Dilli at Mankhool Dubai has recently opened a brand-new branch in centrally located 4 Points by Sheraton on Sheikh Zayed Road.
Although our city offers an endless lineup of Indian restaurants, the success of Purani Dilli has been their ability to stay true to their name. The menu is unashamedly ‘Old Delhi’, the capital of authentic North Indian Mughlai cuisine sans any frills or new-age tricks.
The ‘new’ Purani Dilli offers the exact same, much-loved menu but in swanky new interiors. The Sheikh Zayed branch is smaller and cozier than its earlier counterpart and boasts of shabby chic inspired décor amalgamated with kitsch Indian finds.
A few weeks back, we dined at the vibrantly inviting Desi Village. Located in the heart of Garhoud near the Emirates Aviation College, this spacious, beautifully decorated restaurant offers Indian, Arabic and Continental cuisines.
The head chef and most of the staff are from the North Indian state of Lucknow, the capital for Mughlai cuisine and kebabs, and we therefore indulged in a gastronomy of North Indian delicacies.

Last weekend, I caught up with my childhood friend Sara and her gorgeous little girls at Moombai & Co at H Hotel, Dubai. The retro-style Bollywood inspired venue had me awestruck the very first time we visited, and still holds its magic every time I’ve visited since.
Adding to the gastronomic charm of the place is the headline news that Moombai & Co has now been taken over by celebrity chef and restauranteur Hari Nayak. Chef Hari Nayak is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and has worked across the United States, the UK and Paris reintroducing the culinary art of Indian cuisine in a more simplistic, globally viable format.
I’ve been off an on the dieting bandwagon for as long as I can remember, and rarely have I succeeded at sustainable results.
The buzzword ‘Keto’ caught my fancy quite a few months ago, and I could see the radically positive change it was having on quite a few people in my circle. I was intrigued, yet all the jargon around macros had me in limbo.
A casual chat over a work lunch with my colleague Rasha got us started. We are both Keto newbies and decided to start this journey together.
