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.

Meat lovers rejoice! American barbeque specialist Mighty Quinn’s has finally made their debut into the Dubai foodie scene at JBR.
Mighty Quinn’s is not your everyday grill-house. Specializing in slow-cooked, wood fired all-natural meats and poultry, Mighty Quinn’s promises an authentic barbeque experience that was born in the South, and perfected in the Big Apple.
We booked a table there last Thursday, and were in for a real treat. #WowJBR is in full swing, and the entire JBR strip is lined up with interesting market stalls, and in the evenings, there are live performances and activities for kids. With hum-inducing, rhythmic tunes from local band Sandstorm, we decided to go alfresco, right at the edge of all the action.
Sandwiched between Grand Habtoor and Le Royal Meridien Hotel in JBR Dubai, I have discovered yet another hidden gem. Cucina Mia is an Italian restaurant owned and operated by Italian Chef Domenico Serra, and is located on the ground floor of Trident Grand Residence (JBR).
‘Cucina Mia’ translates to ‘My Kitchen’, and this very endearing name lives up to its promise of offering unabashedly authentic, homely Italian dishes. But don’t take it from me! I was introduced to Cucina Mia by an Italian friend who vouches that the fare is just like how her Mama does it 🙂 What better way to explore a country’s cuisine than to dine with someone who grew up eating it?
