MasterChef Restaurant Dubai

The MasterChef Experience

Even after being lucky enough to visit a variety of restaurants and different kinds of cuisines, I find that I still have that moment of apprehension and unconquered anticipation when we are about to walk into a new one. Having been part of the MasterChef audience since childhood, walking into...


Cheerful Exuberance

The Westin Mina Seyahi has a quaint and lovely restaurant that boasts of a plethora of cuisines called the Mina’s Kitchen. As we stepped in the interiors were a stark contrast to the rest of the hotel. It was an eclectic mix of décor – with the black and white...

Cornucopia of Sustenance

This summer has been laidback and we decided to take advantage by checking out the brunch at the Farriers restaurant within the Meydan hotel. The brunch is spread out across a large area and has copious amounts of food of international cuisines (Chinese, Japanese, Indian, British and Arabic are just...


Italian Realism

This month, we visited Leonardo, an Italian restaurant (obviously!) tucked into the Stella di Mare Dubai Marina. The restaurant décor offers a welcoming, pleasant take on the many lesser known inventions of Leonardo da Vinci, rather than his famous artworks during the Renaissance. The restaurant is not too big and...

Babel Lebanese restaurant

Babel: Eclectic & Appealing

Recently we made our way to Babel, a seafood Lebanese restaurant situated by the sea at La Mer. Babel is eclectic in appearance: it appeals to all, in terms of décor, ambiance and food. The food touches the core of Lebanese cuisine but is presented with a contemporary twist by...


A History of Flavour

Shang Palace is certainly not a new addition within the restaurant line-up in Dubai. However, it has stood the test of time in a fleeting culinary landscape of restaurants that have opened and shut shop, remaining a popular jewel of a famous Singapore franchise. The restaurant is tucked away on...


Mastery over flavours

The best surprises come when you least expect them. We were pleasantly surprised this month at Enigma, a restaurant serving Iranian cuisine located within the Palazzo Versace. The restaurant is beautiful and ornate, which is no big surprise, given the fact that we were inside a Versace resort property. From...


Multifaceted Katsuya

This month we chanced upon an opportunity to visit Katsuya by Starck.  This restaurant is the brainchild of celebrity chef Katsuya Uechi and ‘democratic design’ proponent Philippe Starck. Located on the second floor in Dubai with a generous view of the Dubai fountain, the restaurant tries to serve an experience...


Quaint Queen’s Grill

There’s something about going aboard a gigantic cruise ship. The Queen Elizabeth 2 is renowned and has a long-cherished history of luxurious travel and many a happy passenger. Indeed, entering this monolith of a myriad of passages and hallways is intriguing by itself. Unfortunately we were not there for a...


Signature of Skill & Effort

Indian food can be challenge to make for many, but if you know what you’re doing, like the folks at Signature by Sanjeev Kapoor at the Canvas Hotel by Sofitel, then rest assured, you can enjoy a meal that has been made with a lot of thoughtfulness and attention to...
