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...


Meat Haven

Great food, a fantastic view and wonderful service, all contribute to a fabulous experience. And these days the experience is what everyone is tweeting/commenting/posting about on social media, isn’t it? We visited Fogo de Chão, a Brazilian steakhouse this month and we saw a fair share of patrons frantically taking...


Crazy Fish!

As wicked as the name sounds, Crazy Fish must not be taken literally. The menu is quite sane, I assure you, and equally delicious too. Hidden away around the corner from Beefbar, this haunt for seafood lovers greets with a full display of different kinds of seafood. And then your...

Fire Lake Grill House and Cocktail Bar at the Radisson Blue Dubai Waterfront at Business Bay

Fire it Up!

Dubai is always full of surprises. This month we visited the Fire Lake Grill House and Cocktail Bar at the Radisson Blue Dubai Waterfront at Business Bay, a charming restaurant overlooking an expanse of water not unlike the Marina. While the walkway was deserted at the post-work timing, it was...


Connoisseurs of Meat

It’s not easy to get the perfect bite of flavourful, juicy, tender, mouthwatering steak. Beefbar of Monaco fame, has set up at the Al Fattan Currency House (at what used to be Cle) and does a pretty good job of it. Speaking of pretty, the entrance foyer of the restaurant...


From China to Cuba

Over to the Latino vibe. This month we visited Asia de Cuba, in the Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi. The restaurant has been around for three months. The foyer leading to the restaurant is quite understated until you walk into plush, colourful interiors. It is a picturesque setting with quite a...


Playful Peruvian Cuisine

Perhaps the reason Peruvian cuisine has become so commonplace here is probably because it is so much like the Middle East, a confluence of different nationalities and cultures. Take for instance Dubai – close to 200 nationalities populate this emirate. Likewise Peruvian cuisine has historical influences from across the globe...
