Pyongyang Okryu-Gwan – Or, the North Korean Restaurant in Dubai!

Yep, that’s right.  There is a North Korean restaurant in Dubai and we decided to try it!

As you may have worked out by now, Mummy and I do like a little bit of food sampling from time to time.  Mostly we stick to things we know we like, but every now and again we hear about something fairly random that peaks our interest.

One of my coworkers had recently gone to Pyongyang Okryu-Gwan for dinner and had said some very positive things about it, so when I was making our itinerary/food tour guide, I had to include it.  I never heard about the food, but the description of the live cabaret was more than enough to make me want to see more!

Blaze Burgers… the Verdict

 

There are no good words to start this, so have a picture instead…..

Yummmmmmmmmmm….

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 (!) Continue reading

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 heard some less than impressive things.  I went very briefly when it first opened for one of their much discussed cocktails it was absolutely Continue reading

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 Westin in Al Habtoor City.  It was quite an exciting find really.  I’ve not been to anything in the new cluster of hotels, and so there was the excitement of catching up with Carla, and there was also exploring somewhere new!

It was FUN!  I really liked it.  It’s insides I would describe as “industrial chic” and there were very “Gaucho” cushions in the booths.  The booths themselves are very high backed so you don’t get disturbed by the party behind you, and they are actually super comfortable which is surprising!

The team are great.  I have ice in my wine because I like it very cold.  normally I have to ask over and over again, but this guy (whose name escapes me due to aforementioned wine) remembered every time!  He is a gem!! Continue reading

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.  I wonder if they have the same offers?  I will leave that for you to work out because the marina is faaaaaaar!)

I’ve got to work out how to take better menu pictures! Also, there is steak/salmon too.


The Tuesday Ladies Night offer still remains the same.   Continue reading

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 me to lunch.  He knows that Claw will always work instantly.  They have pork ribs.  I am so easy to please.

This time though I decided to be different.  Check me being all brave and darey!! Continue reading

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 treat yourself.

Yes, this really can happen. Today proved that completely.

I have been walking past Alison Nelson’s Chocolate Bar for the last few years.  Self preservation has always kept me as far away from it as possible.  I mean, a whole cafe dedicated to chocolate?!  Amaze and sooooo dangerous. Continue reading
