P E R F E C T | K E T O | L U N C H for hubs. #salad
Oysters from Maine were perfect 😁👀💕 thanks to the manager and our server at Coast to improve my day! They had a nice medium brine and didn't need any accompaniment.
Sunday brunchin and munching w hubs... I loved this colorful salad and fresh ranch dressing. #meatless
If you like ‘French’ fare with a side order of loud R&B tunes, and don’t mind dining in an empty restaurant, then by all means, pay new Dubai opening, @lefrenchydubai
in the Byblos Dubai Marina hotel a visit. Such a shame, because the food is in fact excellent, even if not traditional French classics, like the website promises. The clue is in the branding - ‘Bar & Restaurant’ states the website. The bar is in fact the centrepiece, which gets busier late at night, so we are told, until a closing time of 3am. More in my review now live - see link in profile. What makes you return to a restaurant? 🍴🍷 #foodivareviews
C H O C O L A T E | B U D I N O...Our final fancy last course from our cooking class w rezgrill and this was modified for me as well, the 1st photo is hubby's. This was a chocolate miso pudding paired with a vodka esspresso.
Our second course was bbq ribs with coleslaw and butter pickles. SWIPE to see the gluten free version. I had to omit the bbq sauce since it contained beer.
Last night we got to go to a curated cooking class that featured The Rez Grill from the Hardrock. We started out with king crab in a chimichurri ver blanc sauce.
Hurrah! Sundowner season starts ❤️. With a new Folly pop flavour 🍑 🥂. Happy hour daily 4-8pm. AED40. Heartening to see the @therooftopatfolly
terrace busy. Tops the bucket list with family in town. Plenty of new dishes on the restaurant menu too 😋. Try the crispy quail and veal brisket dishes 👌🏼. One of my fave restaurants in Dubai - for other haunts see my annual guide (link in profile). Where do you take visitors?🍹🍸 #foodivaloves

C H I M I C H U R R I | R I B S I have had a hard time with eating meat the last 4 weeks and these ribs always pique my appetite which is great.
These were the best grilled wings I have ever had!
And I hook hubby up w the 🥑🥑🥑 even tho it repulses me, it's great for his #keto

My bowl contains shrimp, a fried egg & broccolini. I could have used a little rice or quinoa, but otherwise ✌👍
Have you checked out my latest post from the oyster event? All you can eat cooked oysters and there was other food. I didn't even have to worry too much about gluten bc almost everything was GF 😁. #nimatested
Looks like local #oysters
from last nights event. I tried to find out their location, but the chef was not sure.
w hubs, this was his #keto
pick. I dont think this made it to the Fall menu bc I can't find it now.

You can check my blog for the deets on this awesome new company @bungalohomes

Finally. I found one. Dubai’s version of a Reuben 😜. In fact, inspired by the long-standing salt beef bar in London’s Selfridges. Braised hot salt beef. Gherkins. Sauerkraut. Honey mustard mayo. No Swiss 🧀 though. Sandwiched between a caraway seed malt brioche. Damn delicious, and surprisingly light! Or if you wanna be healthy, the steak salad uses New Zealand grass-fed flank beef 👌🏼. A brown sugar rub gives it a delicate smokey flavour 😋. Both on the @jonesuae
brand new all-day menu, with separate dinner menu and sharing boards now also available - see link in profile. Across all locations in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, including those with booze 😉. Did you know Jones The Grocer’s UAE operation now owns the rights to the brand worldwide with their global head office here in the UAE? Are you a sandwich or salad type? 🥪🥗🥩 #sponsored #newmenu #dubaicafes

I'm very photogenic but the hardest thing for me is taking food photos lol. The first one looked great, but my husband cut out the food. Then I was kinda looking like this lol.
Oh and they have frosés now... that's what I am holding. It was so good!
B E E F | T A R T A R (this one is not GF) hubby had this and it's also new to the menu. I suspect this can be made gluten free if asked, but its #keto
friendly for him.
S O U P E | A U P I S T O U
This is one of my favorite photos from the night! This is the gluten free variation (it has no couscous). #datenight
Another new menu item... H A L I B U T with a poppy seed sauce, Veronique, and collard greens (these greens were on point!) This is the gluten free variation.
New on the blog today we decided to go to @elevagetampa
to try their new menu earlier in the month.
B R O N Z E D | S C A L L O P S over a sauce that basically is corn. This was so good it could have been my entree tbh.
Sharjah’s University City district is brimming with charming cafes. Here we have @ojsneighborhoodeatery
run by two Emirati ladies. The food is fresh, wholesome cooking, many made from family recipes - all with bundles of flavour (more on Stories) 😋. Any other Sharjah cafe recommendations? Would you welcome a round-up on where to eat in Sharjah? Huge thanks to @bod_bod
for suggesting OJ’s 🙏🏼. In fact, just follow him for all things Sharjah, and more 😎🍴 #sharjahdiva
