Pizza & Prosecco

What a winning combination, right!  If you then add on top an all in one price, then you win BIG time! All you can eat pizza and all you can drink prosecco all for the princely sum of AED 149 for ladies, or AED 199 for the gents.  Not only can you drink prosecco, there is…

Le Raj, Banstead, Surrey

The spot of “My Favourite Restaurant” is a really tricky one to fill.  I like so many different types of food, and have been fortunate enough to eat in so many different countries, that I can never quite decide on an absolute winner.  I mean, how do you choose between your favourite steak place vs…

A Very Versace Weekend – Pt.1

I’m an Aunty again!  My wonderful sister had her third child on Wednesday and he is utterly divine!  Naturally this had to be celebrated, and so we celebrated in expat style… with a brunch! There are so many on offer at the moment that it was a tough choice, but after reading Lil One Of…

Eat The World!

Sounds like a great idea to me!  Sadly “the World” consisted only of Singapore, the UAE, the UK and the US.  That was a great start though, unlike the start of this post which I think is weak. What am I banging on about, I hear you wonder?  Well, part of this year’s Dubai Food…

Lesson Sadly Learnt

If you see a new restaurant or a cafe that looks amaze, and you really want to try it, do. As soon as possible. Don’t wait a few years to get around to it. Because when you do it might completely suck and then you’ve wasted a few years waiting for the right time to…

Best Indian Restaurant, EVER.

I am not a huge fan of partying in the New Year.  I would much rather have a nice meal or some nice nibbles at home.  New Year’s Eve also happens to be my little sister’s birthday so it’s more of a family time than a party time. This year was no exception.  I didn’t…

Touristing Again!

By 9.30am we had had enough of looking at Dubai from above, and needed to get back to the ground so that we could eat.  Ok, mostly it was me who needed feeding but in fairness, we had lunch at 1pm the day before and nothing since! The Boy very kindly agreed to pick us…

Afternoon Tea at the Burj Al Arab

Every now and again I feel the need to act my age.  Thankfully its very rare, but when it does happen, instead of doing something boring I end up having a very lovely afternoon with one of my girlfriends at the Burj Al Arab! I should confess that it isn’t exactly how this wonderful day…

Greek Quinoa

Have you tried Quinoa yet?  If not, you really should! Quinoa is a gluten free “ancient grain”.  It is a really good source of protein, fiber and iron.  It has a bunch of essential amino acids, which are great for weight loss.  It’s also super trendy at the moment for some reason. I am not…
