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.

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.

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

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.

UK – Anchor Bleu’s Fish & Chips

I LOVE UK’s Fish & Chips and particularly Anchor Bleu’s. Thanks to my lovely mother in-law who invited us for Tim’s 28th Birthday. I really enjoyed the vibe, the service and the food.

If ever you stop by that area, please order their Fish and Chips and around the corner, there’s a cute souvenir and art gallery to check out.

The place is really cozy and feels like home.

Singapore – $70 Pokémon Jumbo Crab

I met a girl in Singapore who is originally from Hong Kong and she highly recommended trying Jumbo Crab so I searched it online and the place was awarded by Trip Advisor. So I met up with a friend of a friend named Parijat and Tim was with us too and we three decided to try out the restaurant.

The restaurant displayed the huge massive jumbo crabs in a tank; I really think the crabs do look like Pokémon. It’s enormous. Anyway so we ordered 2 crabs to share and 3 ice teas with out meal and yup!! the bill came up to $300. WHATT???? I KNOW!!!

Highlight of that meal which Tim keeps reminding me off, is when I was trying to eat the crab with chopsticks. OK!! I have a reason behind it. So I’m the only girl on the table and hanging out with 2 male acquaintances who I just met so I didn’t want to look like a messy  eater so I decided to pick up the chopsticks and eat in the most “sophisticated way”. Honestly, I looked dumb and couldn’t eat properly. After lots of laughter, Tim said ‘just use your hands’. But NOOOOOOO ME??? USE HANDS IN FRONT OF TIM (because I had a crush on him) . So I asked for gloves which made it even more awkward because for some reason the crab meat kept slipping from my hand.

Anyway we did enjoy our  $70 Jumbo Crab Pokémon. Would I eat it again? YES!!!! But probably somewhere affordable but the restaurant is apparently #1 in Singapore.

That night Parijat had to get back home early so we said our goodbyes then Tim and I spent the night in Marina Bay before he travelled to the Philippines.
