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…

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…

Elia, Majestic Hotel, Dubai

  Does anyone ever want to cook anything after spending the day at the beach?  Unless it’s a BBQ of course.  That can happen.  But regular cooking always seems so hard.  Knowing this, we planned accordingly and booked to go out for dinner. Quite fittingly for our ‘holiday’ inspired day, we found ourselves at Elia…

Blaze Burgers… the Verdict

  There are no good words to start this, so have a picture instead….. Blaze Burgers on JBR is where you will find the “6abooc-a Burger”, aka the Brick Burger. The Boy and I have been borderline fantasising about this place since the restaurant launched itself in a blaze (!)

Brunch at Coya

Hello everyone!  I’m back… sort of.  I never meant to be away.  It just kind of happened.  I ran out of words again. But thanks to my friend’s birthday brunch at Coya this weekend, I have plenty! Coya is the Four Season’s Peruvian offering, and I’ve heard some really good things about it.  I’ve also…

Ladies Night at Cook Hall!

  Yeah, I did two ladies nights in two days.  I am a beast.  I am getting them both out there though so that I can have space to blog about a rather good weekend that’s coming up too!!! Cook Hall is the American gastro pub (agreed – gastro pubs should be British) at the…

Ladies Night at Nezzas!

It’s been quite a while since I went to Nezesaussi Grill at the Manzil Hotel, Downtown.  At least 6 months, I’m sure.  Good news is that it’s still great!  Just thought I would let you know!! (P.S.  Whilst googling how to spell this venue’s name, I have discovered there is one now in the Marina too….

Claw BBQ Crabshack & Grill, Dubai

I would like to give a shout out to Claw in Souk Al Bahar, which is consistently good.  So few places are anymore. From the food to the team; there is no bad here as far as I can tell. I had a bit of a rubbish day so to cheer me up The Boy took…

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…
