Dubai Roast Dinner Diaries – Part 7

I’ve managed to put my back into spasm again but I’m not one to let that put me off my food. What does put me off food is when you have to literally ditch an entire meal because it’s so incredibly bad. That’s my experience is Ready Roast.

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…

The Barge House, London N1

You know how every now and again you see something on Instagram and think “I need that”?  It could be a new face mask, or a mermaid blanket, or something delicious to eat.  But you just know that you will have to have it in your life at some point. Well, that was me and…

The Two Brewers, Windsor

After our incredibly long walk down the aptly named “Long Walk” in Windsor Great Park, we were thrilled to see that literally next to the Castle was the pub we were booked into for lunch. The Two Brewers is absolutely one of those ‘local knowledge’ places. 

Jacoby’s Tavern & Kitchen

Every time we went to visit Grandma in the later years, and certainly since I moved abroad, she would like to treat us to a nice lunch out. There was only one or two places that would pass muster, and Jacoby’s was one of them.  With that in mind, there was really only one place…

Beach Bareburger

Lunch time is a very difficult decision at La Mer.  Not only does each section have different restaurants, there are loads to pick from.  We literally only explored the South side and that proved hard enough! We settled, after much debate and remembering we were out for dinner that night, on Bareburger but shockingly not…

More food, Piggies!

When I was a child, my Mummy had surgery a bit too close to Christmas for my Dad’s liking.  In order to play the supportive husband card and get as many brownie points as possible, he booked to take the four of us plus my maternal Grandmother and Grandfather out to dinner on Christmas Day. …

Bvlgari Afternoon Tea

Although Mum and I had decided that we weren’t doing “flashy Dubai” this vacation, it was Christmas and so there had to be a few lovely treats involved.  The one I was most excited about was going to the recently opened Bvlgari Hotel for their afternoon tea. Afternoon tea is one of Mum and my…

Palazzo Versace

If you’re going to have a pool day then you may as well do it properly!  With that in mind, there was only one logical choice for Mum’s first day of relaxation…. the beautifully over the top Palazzo Versace! I am a big fan of this place.  It’s so over the top it’s crazy, but…
