“That’s Dubai, eh…,” responds a manager to my statement that the menu at new chic Dubai beach club, @driftbeachdubai in the One & Only Royal Mirage is overpriced (minimum AED350 per person for three courses without alcohol). Well he does ask how our meal has fared. Shame as the food overall is decent classic Mediterranean fare. More in my review now live on FooDiva – see link in profile. How much would you pay for a three-course beach club lunch in Dubai? 🍴🐙 🍷#foodivareviews #foodiva
These little gems of goodness are snail doughnuts 😋. Genius interpretation of classic Escargots a la Bourguignonne by @follydubai 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼. Perfect lunch fodder today. Thanks to @finediningmatt for the heads up. One of my favourite restaurants in Dubai (see link in profile for the other 27)! Also happens to be my wedding party venue 😜. Where else serves snails in Dubai? 🍴🐌 #foodivaloves #foodiva

What is Balkan food? Actually pretty decent wholesome fare full of punchy flavour that overcomes a slight lack in presentation 😋. I dined @21grams.dubai last night, a new cafe-cum-bistro on Jumeirah Beach Road at the Al Thanya intersection (in the Park Regis Boutique Hotel - unlicensed) operated by a Serbian owner and team. Named after the weight of the human soul (!); the latitude of the Balkan Peninsula; and the area code of the owner’s Serbian home town (Novi Sad). Now who would like to set the record straight on the countries classified as Balkan please? Google is most confusing 😜🍴#balkanfood #foodivaloves #foodiva

The new al fresco Meraas development @lamerdubai has opened its first licensed restaurant 😋. @mastidubai which translates to "fun and mischief" is another new ‘Indian restaurant’ for this city, but don’t just expect a modern interpretation. The cuisine would be better described as fusion with strong Indian flavours. More in my review now live – see link in profile. Have you tried any other restaurants at La Mer that impressed or even disappointed? 🍴🌶🍸 #foodivareviews #foodiva
A well-executed Neapolitan classic - spaghetti alle vongole in bianco at new snazzy beach club, @driftbeachdubai in the One & Only Royal Mirage for lunch yesterday 😋. No surprise given the chef is Maxime Le Van who specialises in Mediterranean dishes - you might recall him as the opening chef of Boca. Shame the pricing is so sky high though 🙁. More in my review soon. With such blissful weather, where is your go-to spot for al fresco lunching, preferably with a view? 🍝🍷🍴 #foodivareviews #foodiva
Happiness is this great shot of our favorite poké bowl! 😋👌 #Repost @foodiva (@get_repost ) ・・・ It’s rare for restaurants to get multi-cuisine menus right, in my opinion. Salmon and crab poke bowl for me. Pulled beef brioche burger for husband. Prawn biryani for mum. Steak tartare for dad. But Lafayette Le Gourmet @citywalkdubai pulls it off successfully, like with its Dubai Mall sibling 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼. Something for every palate 😋. Great to see a City Walk restaurant so busy for a late Friday lunch. 🥢🍚 #foodivaloves #foodiva

Recognise this dish? Gorgeous grilled marinated poussin, a twist on Palestinian musakhan, that we demolished @bhardxb in the new Renaissance Downtown on New Year’s Day, but previously tasted at Q’bara 😜. The modern Middle Eastern menu is identical (same sous chef now exec chef). Part of an AED90 three-course business lunch deal (including NY’s Day!). Whilst the food was excellent, the Fawlty-esque service left much to be desired ☹️. Having enjoyed an aperitif on the mammoth terrace on another occasion, Bhar makes for a more atmospheric dinner venue than lunch. I wonder if we’ll ever see the day where exec chefs will be able to trademark their dishes? 🍴🍷 #DealDiva #FooDiva

Only 2 spots left for our newly designed mystery #DineAroundDubai on 29th January! This time round we are including separate oyster and cheese tastings 😋. Start the evening at our first mystery restaurant with @ruinart Champagne and an oyster tasting by the founder of the UAE’s first oyster farm, @dibbabay #FooDiva will guide you around three high-end restaurants, each serving a different course and cuisine. You'll taste a hand-picked selection of signature dishes, presented by the chefs and paired with wine courtesy of @mmidubai - explained by Lindsay from @thetastingclass At our last restaurant prior to desserts, you will enjoy a cheese tasting, the French way 😜. All restaurants are in close proximity, either a short walk or with a car transfer. Join us if you fancy an evening of fun, fine dining! It's an intimate event for 12 people only (with 2 spots left) so reservations are required in advance (see booking page link in profile). 🍴🥂🍾🍷
Brunch w/ the family ❤️☕️🍳🥔🥩
A few too many antiquities for my liking, but the Jean Nouvel architecture of @louvreabudhabi is impressive and well worth visiting 😎. A few tips - buy your tickets online in advance; arrive for 10am opening otherwise expect huge queues; skip the cafe/ restaurant (pricey with shambolic service) and go for lunch elsewhere on Saadiyat Island 😉 #foodiva #abudhabidiva
BAONUT @bbdifc #afternoontea . . #Repost @foodiva ・・・ THE best doughnut I have EVER eaten 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼. At new restaurant opening @bbdifc 😋. Thankfully, it’s not filled with anything - just the way I like these little gems. Slice the soft dough apart; spread raspberry jam and/ or chocolate-dusted Chantilly cream should you wish. Wonderful with a cuppa of English Breakfast. Are you a doughnut purist or do you like them filled/ coated? What’s your favourite? Enjoy the long weekend lovelies. x 🍩🍩🍩 #foodivaloves #foodiva
Mesmerising performance @laperledxb 😍. Well done Dubai 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼. Expensive even with a 40% early bird discount, but worth every dirham. Add it to your bucket list. Just avoid the very mediocre @citygrilldubai for dinner after the show ☹️. #touristinmycity #mydubai #foodiva
The bubbly was well and truly popped...and drank last night by a family of ten 😜. Cheers all to a fabulous food-filled Christmas Day 😋. Much love and good health lovelies 💚🥂🍾🎄 #christmascheer #foodiva

Blimey, are restaurants suddenly improving in Dubai for me to dish out a second consecutive 4.5 out of 5 knife rating?! Or am I becoming soft in my old age? 😉 My experience with Indian restaurants in Dubai are hit and miss. I love punchy flavour, but I can’t, or rather my stomach can’t tolerate high doses of chilli spice. Digestion issues aside, I feel that, a little like truffle, extreme spice overpowers the natural flavours of a dish, and in the case of chilli, sets your tongue on fire. So it’s a welcome change to dine in a new Indian restaurant here, @littlemissindiarestaurant at @fairmontthepalm , where the menu has no indication of spice levels 😋. More in my review now live – see link in profile. What other licensed Indian restaurants hit the spot for you? How do you like your spice levels? 🍴🍷🍹#FooDivaReviews #FooDiva
