Ammos Restaurant, Rixos Premium Dubai

Harmonious Ammos

Owing to current circumstances, we decided to visit (I assure you, much before the pandemic was announced) an outdoorsy restaurant. We tried Greek cuisine for a change and visited Ammos within the Rixos Premium Dubai JBR.This cosmopolitan restaurant offers stellar views of the Ain Dubai, and Blue Waters, and used...


Fresh and soulful

There are some days when one craves comfort food. On one such day, my colleague and I went to Marea, an Italian restaurant tucked away in the Gate Village at the DIFC. The restaurant is the Dubai counterpart to its Michelin-starred New York original. At the helm is Chef Michael...


A Whole Lotta Tapas

As the headline suggests, this place we visited recently had only tapas, and some well-thought out ones too. Nido, a tapas restaurant and bar at the Sheraton Grand on Sheikh Zayed Road is located in the right place to cater to office-goers. The place has a young, vibrant vibe. The...

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...

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...
