Appam Corner – Dubai Investment Park

One of the best and affordable Indian restaurants in Dubai Investment Park. We gave it a try when we read free unlimited Appams and visited quite few times ever since. Appams are type of bread displayed in the picture below.

Tim had the meat thali while I had the veggie thali. Thali is a meal where different types of curries are served on a leaf.  When I say it’s affordable, I do mean it; the meals range from £2 – £6. If ever you feel like having Indian food, do give it a try. Thali’s are always the best but only served for lunch so if you go there for dinner I recommend the Tandoori Combo.

The restaurant is good for people who love meat and vegans.

Arabian Tea House

Arabian Tea House was recommended by my dear friend Christina. Tim and I visited old Dubai several times for Art Night, Dubai Treasure Hunt and many other events.

Arabian Tea House is one of the few original and cultural places in Dubai that serves Arabic food in an old traditional Emirati house. The restaurant is a mix of Gulf and Levant dishes. Their Arabic coffee is a must; they prepare it really well. If you ever want to try it make sure to ask the waiter to boil the coffee, it brings out the flavor.

The prices are fairly reasonable and their salads are very delicious. If you are visiting from abroad, I recommend you take Al Fahidi station and walk towards the Dubai Museum or Creek. Take the traditional Abra ride for AED 1 equivalent to £ 0.21 to go to the Gold Souq on your way back take the Abra and stop at Arabian Tea House for a traditional meal.

Sahtein – Bon Appetite

Life ‘n One

If you are a Vegan or in love with Yoga and Nature then Life ‘n One is the best place for you. I asked Tim where he wanted to go for lunch and he said he wanted something healthy. So I took him to a Vegan place and Tim loves meat so I laughed a lot when he was going through the menu.

Life N One

Anyway the place is not quite difficult to find and parking is not an issue. It is a reasonable sized villa that offers Yoga and Meditation classes. In the backyard or as the English call it a garden, they have a cosy set up with wooden tables and chairs and very colourful theme for people to enjoy their meal, work on their laptop or even read a book.

Life ‘n One is slightly over charged (that’s my opinion) but overall the experience was pleasant. They served us flavoured water, Tim had a vegan burger and I ordered a quinoa salad with kale. In addition, we both had seaweed salad on the side which was my favourite.

So if ever you want to visit, I’d say morning would be the best time and also the place is animal friendly. Oh one of more info, you’ll pay your bill at the exit where you can also enquire about the Yoga and Meditation classes.

Wokyo – Japanese Noodle Restaurant in Dubai

Wokyo serves the best Japanese noodles in Dubai. They are located in JLT, Cluster J. Tim and I must have visited that place more than 3 times already and tried all kinds of noodles and sauces.

WOK (3)

It’s very similar to the concept of Subway but instead of Sandwiches, you are getting NOODLES. YES!!!! YOU READ RIGHT. NOOOODLESSSSSS

WOK 4

The staff are very friendly and the service is prompt. The restaurant sells Japanese products as well as has Japanese board games and books to entertain yourself and of course origami.

The place is worth visiting and you can go for a nice walk around the area after finishing your meal. It’s one of the best Japanese casual restaurants that Tim and I enjoy going back to.

A Farm in the Desert

Al Barari is the name of the farm located in Dubai in the middle of an unexpected location. The access to the farm is through the high way or how my husband calls it ‘motor way’.

The place is so peaceful and the food’s deliciously healthy. You’ll have to book days in advance to get a decent table and the farm is always better to be visited in winter, DUBAI WINTER because of the outdoor area.

Tim and I visited in January and had a lovely breakfast by the pond. If ever you would like to visit, you can contact the farm on +971 4 392 5660 or check out their website www.thefarmdubai.ae. It is worth the visit.

Food Trucks are a trend in Dubai

Food trucks are a thing here in Dubai and it’s categorised as one of the cool things to try in the city.

It does have a nice feel to it however abroad, the food trucks are considered street food and cheap, unlike here where it’s a trend and the food are overly priced.

So far Tim and I have been to 5 places with Food Trucks.

We’ve been to…..

  1. Salt: Located on the beach and they once served burgers in a black bun which was available for a limited time only. We’ve been to the one in Ajman and Dubai.Salt (1).jpg
  2. Eat the World: An event held by the company I work for. The event takes place in Burj Park and caters several food trucks. Our friend Katherine joined us on that event. It usually occurs in March. Eat the World 01
  3. Hangry Hangers: Yes!!! Hangry and not Hungry …We went there with our friends Ivana and Mohammad. It was a temporary indoor food truck located in a warehouse.HOW AWESOME IS THATHangry Hangers (2)Hangry Hangers (1)
  4. Last Exit: We’ve been there 3 times already and it’s a pretty awesome place. It has the vibe of the 60s and 70s and it’s located at the Exit of Abu Dhabi to Dubai that’s why they named it the ‘LAST EXIT’ and they’ve opened a second branch heading to Al Ain. The new one looks more like a cowboy ranch / horse stable kind of style.Last Exit (1)Last Exit (2)Last Exit (3)
  5. TruckersDXB: A Food Truck Event that is held every Saturday in different parts of Dubai.  Check them out on facebook https://www.facebook.com/truckersdxb/?fref=tsTRUCKERSDXB (1)TrucksDXB (2)

If we visit more Food Trucks in Dubai, for sure I’ll share it with you guys.

Ramadan in Asateer, Atlantis

My colleagues and I along with our spouses celebrated the Holy Month of Ramadan at the Asateer Tent which is located in Atlantis on the Palm Jumeirah Island.

Asateer is the Arabic word for ‘Legends’. The Asateer Tent is voted as one of the most beautiful Ramadan Tents in Dubai. The interiors of the tent is extremely luxurious and the buffet serves delicious Arabic food and drinks.

We had a great time chit chatting and eating lots of desserts. They served unlimited ice-cream, cakes and my favourite Arabic dessert called ‘Knefe’. I wish I could eat so much and not gain weight. Of course! I’m sure it’s every girls dream.
