There is something about @mr.crab_uae that makes me come back for more. Not sure if it’s an addictive ingredient in the sauce, the yumminess of the food, or simply my love for Crab Crackin’! —————————————————————————— Regardless, the tacos are a must try and the Crab-O-Nanza is the ultimate meal for 4 persons; or just me, myself & I. #soulselections #soulfood #mrcrabuae
I like waffles because they look like hashtags; only with extra Nutella! You can find this Old Faithful at @wofl_me - loaded with Nutella, whipped cream, strawberries and hazelnut pralines. —————————————————————————— Too messy to eat, but then again who cares? #soulselections #soulfood #wofl

Traditional Yemeni food and a Majlis seating is what makes @marahebuae the perfect escape from my usual food habits. An authentic experience for a humble price. —————————————————————————— Hanith, the meat shoulder, is my favorite item; followed by honey bread & 3 cups of Yemeni tea. #soulselections #soulfood #maraheb

Happy to have visited the house to “The Best Karak Tea in the World”! I enjoyed one of the best Saffron Karak Teas in Dubai (not sure about the world yet!) and paired it with Honey & Cheese Paratha, which I personally thought needed extra filling. Ended my visit with a superstar dessert made of layers of milk cake, lotus crumbs, berries, ice cream & lotus spread. Lotus Delight is an explosion of yummy flavors! Thank you @chaiandcouae for having me. —————————————————————————— Karak Lovers, @chaiandcouae is waiting for you, & so is the Lotus Delight!!

I’ve had breakfast @socialhousedubai before & loved it. I came back for early dinner & it was unfortunately disappointing. 3.5/5 ⭐️ Shrimp Popcorn Salad: Generous shrimp portion but the apple dressing was not enough. 1.5/5 ⭐️ Duck Spring Rolls: Smelled gamey as soon as it reached the table; didn’t taste good either. 1/5 ⭐️ Tantan Ramen Soup: I specifically ordered a vegetarian soup & got a ramen with beef chunks, seaweed & eggs that truly tastes bad. It was deducted off the bill. —————————————————————————— A very disappointing experience at a place that I’ve liked before; I’ll probably stick to breakfasts @socialhousedubai ! #soulselections #soulfood #socialhousedubai
Queuing for over 100 minutes in a sub zero temperature to have some Indian food; was it worth it? Warmed up with complimentary house chai while waiting, had the first & best okra fries in my life, absolutely perfect biryani & curries and the weirdest dessert possible. When I ordered the Kala Khatta, the waiter asked me if I was sure of my choice & knowing me, I insisted. The dessert is made up of shaved ice, fruit syrup, chili flakes, cumin, black salt, white salt, lemon & spices. I LOVED IT & the manager was happy to share that I’m the 2nd person to like it in 3 years. —————————————————————————— @dishoom was by far, the best Indian food I’ve had, probably ever. I’ll be craving those okra fries & Kala Khatta, until next time. #soulselections #soulfood #dishoom
My Serial from Cereal Killer! I encountered “the luckiest charm” in the middle of Camden Town! It was nice visiting the original place after a pleasant experience in Dubai’s branch.

Teatime in London is one of my favorite things ☕️ Enjoyed a heaped teapot of fresh Assam Tea @theportmanpub —————————————————————————— Grown in the tropical climate of Assam, Assam Tea is known for its malty flavor & bright color and this is exactly why I love it! #soulselections #soulfood #tea
Wishing you a year full of food, colors & glitter ✨ Happy New Year Everyone!! #soulselections #soulfood #happynewyear2018
Well I obviously ended my year with a Feast at London’s Beast! Extremely huge King Crab legs that are full of meat, 800g of rare chateaubriand that is unbelievably tender & juicy, a very special cauliflower carpaccio, delicious truffle chips, and a creamy chocolate mousse! —————————————————————————— The least I can say is that this dinner was pure perfection - one of the few 5/5 ⭐️ in a while! HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! #soulselections #soulfood #beast
Picture this: 1 scoop of vanilla ice cream 1 scoop of chocolate ice cream 1 scoop of hazelnut ice cream 1 homemade crunchy waffle 1 ball of Ferrero Rocher Honeycomb crunch Chocolate Sauce A handful of hazelnuts & lots of whipped cream —————————————————————————— Fell in love with this Coppa Nocciola from The Ice Cream Parlour @harrods 🍨🍨🍨 #soulselections #soulfood #harrods
Obviously not the best presentation, but definitely one of the best sirloins in London @hawksmoorrestaurants -Enjoyed a perfectly cooked medium rare juicy sirloin & wonderful service! Loved the Salcombe Crab on Toast too 🦀 #soulselections #soulfood #hawksmoor
For the love of eclairs!! The best eclairs I’ve ever had @maitrechoux !! Top to Bottom: Salted Caramel, Arabic Coffee, Turkish Hazelnut & Pralines. I can’t really decide which is my favorite as they all are truly amazing! #soulselections #soulfood #maitrechoux
Such a beautiful place with exceptional service & lots of great food. The chili egg on a brioche bun with mango chutney is superb; the tea-cured salmon is delicious & the cavolo nero has now become one of my favorite greens! All this at @grangerandco - London. #soulselections #soulfood #grangerandco
When Cheese gets it’s picture taken, what does it say? Enjoyed one of the simplest yet best cheese sandwiches - it’s exactly what I needed in London’s freezing weather. #soulselections #soulfood #cheese
Good morning London 🇬🇧 Step downstairs into the Alice in Wonderland decor to enjoy one of the best Australian breakfasts in London @daisygreen The Avocado on Activated Charcoal sourdough is super cool and the Salmon Royale is excellent! Check my story for more pictures ☝🏻 #soulselections #soulfood #daisygreen
Colorful, refreshing, delicious & low calorie - it is @moishi.uae , the Japanese ice cream. Mochi, a famous Japanese dessert is usually made of rice powder & cream and @moishi.uae is the upgraded version of it. And it is to die for!! So many flavors & so many happy taste buds yet lychee & salted caramel are my favorite!! You can find @moishi.uae in @citywalkdubai , @lamerdubai & @theoutletvillage Read more about @moishi.uae success story & the young entrepreneur behind it - link in Bio. #soulselections #soulfood #moishi
There’s something about breakfast buffets and brunches that makes you want to eat more! And @brasseriequartier at the @stregisdubai is definitely one of them! More pictures on my story! #soulselections #soulfood #stregis
I enjoyed the preview of “Reveillon” last night - it felt like I was a creole in NOLA (New Orleans, Louisiana) back in the 19th century; except I was pampered by an awesome Chef at NOLA Dubai. If you’d like to feel the same, book your table @noladubai and enjoy their festive menu before it’s too late. Make sure you try the veal rump & dessert; truly festive! 📌 For details & quick history of NOLA, check the link in bio! #soulselections #soulfood #nola
Matto, meaning crazy in Italian, is exactly how my experience at @mattodubai was - crazy good. The music, the vibes, the Italian staff, the authentic food and really everything was awesome!

I finally got hands on the famous Japanese cheesecake at @yamanoteatelier & to be honest I wasn’t impressed. I’m looking forward to trying other specialties next time; especially their savory tartines! Until then 🍓 #soulselections #soulfood #yamanoteatelier #yamanote
This vibrant futuristic ceiling is what brought me to @switchdubai & I am glad it did. A relatively small but lively lounge in @thedubaimall with a bunch of food twists to offer: 3.5/5 ⭐️ Mozzarella Sticks (45 aed): Good, yet basic. 4/5 ⭐️ Truffles Burrata (65 aed): Good quality cheese & delicious truffle salsa. 3.5/5 ⭐️ Peppered Calamari (45 aed): A bit spicy but good! 3.5/5 ⭐️ Camel Sliders (59 aed): My 1st attempt at camel meat & I am not sure how I feel! Cooked well though & the touch of pine nuts is interesting. 3/5 ⭐️ Pink Risotto (63 aed): @switchdubai have specialty pink pasta & risotto. The color doesn’t look appealing in the photo & taste isn’t too special. 4.5/5 ⭐️ Lotus Mess (52 aed): A baked lotus cake topped with lotus ice cream & a side shot of lotus sauce. Lotus overdose? 📌 The food is good overall yet I’m not crazy about it; but I am in love with the color changing decor, & of course the lotus mess; could be back for that. #soulselections #soulfood #switchdubai #switch
Couldn’t wait for the photoshoot to end before I devour my new favorite high protein meal @cali.poke 🥥 Fresh coconuts, super rich poke bowls, poke tacos, Peruvian & Mexican ceviche bowls and some garlic edamame - Can this get any better? #soulselections #soulfood #calipoke #coconut
This is my second visit to @treejcafe after taking part in their breakfast launch two weeks ago. Back then, I had a very unprofessional incident & had to reschedule the review. This time it was a weekend lunch & more mixed experiences. Excellent Jesheed shark salad but a flavorless Salmon Allaq; Very good Rosemary Chicken but a disappointing dense Coffee Burger; Nice staff but slow service; & beautiful presentation but average taste. Even though the colors & view of Treej are really inviting, something is missing - I wonder if it’s the slow service or the inconsistency of the food quality. Either way it should be looked into as the place has a lot of potential. I heard they have good shakes & desserts; maybe another time. #soulselections #soulfood #treej
This secret item is the exclusive new addition at @findsalt Surf House; and it’s available starting today!! Oh by the way, it’s just their famous lotus softie but in a lotus bun!! Run!! #soulselections #soulfood #findsalt #icecreamburger
There’s no snooze button on a Foodie who wants breakfast - good morning from @hub.1833 Small portions but good food, excellent coffee & amazing service. Oh and Burj Khalifa view! #soulselections #soulfood #breakfast
When you’re not sure what to order, order them all. Enjoyed a sunny breakfast at @lamiedoree Verdun - beautiful presentation, good food, and lots of yummy items to choose from! Try it out this weekend ☀️ #soulselections #soulfood #breakfast
Paname, slang for Paris, is the new bistro for you if you’re a fan of “Almost French” cuisine. In the heart of @saifivillage , @panamebeirut offers high quality food & great service: 4/5 ⭐️ Tuna Ceviche (36.000 LBP): the green mangoes & avocado purée makes it even more fresh. 4/5 ⭐️ Kale Salad (34.000 LBP): very high quality Scottish salmon! 4.5/5 ⭐️ Steak Haché (38.000 LBP): Not your average burger, it’s wagyu, it’s topped with a perfect egg, & it’s delicious. 5/5 ⭐️ Chocolate Mousse (16.000 LBP): Okay I admit it, no picture because it was too good to wait. Loved @panamebeirut & everything the Chef advised of trying. Worth the visit! #soulselections #soulfood #panamebeirut #paname
“It’s not another Restaurant, it’s not a bar, it’s a lifestyle.” This is the slogan that brought me to Brassica, the 2-month old restaurant in town: 4/5 ⭐️ Fried Calamari (16.000 LBP): The dip is special! 3.5/5 ⭐️ Fresh Burrata (26.000 LBP): Beautiful presentation but average tasting burrata. The balsamic reduction is not well done either. 4/5 ⭐️ Crispy Salmon Sushi (15.000LBP): Served on crispy rice, nice fusion & good taste. 3/5 ⭐️ Brassica Steak & Fries (38.000LBP): Not the greatest presentation, & not the best taste either. The steak is too thin & the sauce is really heavy. 4/5 ⭐️ Grilled Beef Tenderloin (46.000 LBP): beautiful presentation, good taste & excellent puréed potatoes. Very good plate. 3/5 ⭐️ Grilled Strip-loin (48.000LBP): I was disappointed with the quality of the meat in this item even though it was cooked to perfection. The baked potatoes are okay. 3.5/5 ⭐️ Classic Cheese Burger (22.000 LBP): Nothing too special but good overall. 3/5 ⭐️ Service: Very slow I’m a bit confused with the rating of Brassica as some of the plates were worth the visit & others were completely not. I will be back for other items & definitely churros this time. #soulselections #soulfood #brassica
I got the chance to have breakfast at the first cereal cafe in Lebanon @crunchy.flakes & as you can see, I took the picture of the stairway like everyone does. Besides the company and the snakes & ladders game that I lost at, I was a bit disappointed. The decor is not as fun as it is expected to be & the food is not as creative. I don’t think I’ll be back, but I will give their new branch a chance once it opens at @abcverdun 🌈 #soulselections #soulfood #crunchyflakes #breakfast
It really feels like home at @homesweethomebeirut - So many attempts & 3 different people taking pictures to finally document myself enjoying “Read this if you want to be Instagram Famous”, with a mug of Cappuccino & the best seat in the house. #soulselections #soulfood #homesweethome
Because you cannot possibly have enough! The beef platter at @swissbutter is one of the best meals I’ve had in a while. Such a simple concept, affordable price & great meal - See for yourselves! #soulselections #soulfood #swissbutter
Whether it’s a healthy poke bowl, a scrumptious dessert or a friendly staff member, I know something is bringing me back to @lapetitetablelb - 4/5 ⭐️ Salmon Poke Bowl (24.500 LBP) - Super Fresh! 4/5 ⭐️ Goat Cheese Pie (20.500 LBP): Loved the touch of honey! 3.5/5 ⭐️ Shrimp & Grapefruit Tartine (18.500 LBP): Very good but hard to cut through. 4.5/5 ⭐️ Passion Fruit Vacherin (14.000 LBP): A gorgeous dessert with fresh mango, sorbet & yummy meringue. I loved it! 4.5/5 ⭐️ Soft Serve with additions: the crispy granola is so so good! Next time you’re around, give it a try - their salad/Soup bar is my next stop. #soulselections #soulfood #lapetitetable
When my Soul takes me to Beirut, @leilaminlebnen is always one of my first Selections. With over 15 items on the table, my favorites never change. 5/5 ⭐️ Lahme B Karaz: I am obsessed with this plate & the sweet/sour cherry with the meat. 5/5 ⭐️ Fattet Batenjan: Balanced ingredients & excellent flavors. 3/5 ⭐️ Cheese Maamoul: The newest addition to the dessert menu is not as good as expected, the dough is very buttery & not soft enough. The service is great, the food is always up to standards & the feel of this new @abcverdun branch is really nice too! Always a joy. #soulselections #soulfood #lebanesefood #abcverdun
When searching the top steakhouses in Dubai, you cannot miss J&G @jgsteakhousedubai - I will not say much about the service, location nor ambience as they are really impressive & luxurious in every aspect. Had a few awesome appetizers before the star of the night was served. 5/5 ⭐️ 1.5kg Tomahawk: cooked to a perfect medium rare & cut in front of us. We were offered a large chest of specialty knives to choose from; each knife reflecting a certain personality. Winner of @goodfoodawards for the best meat restaurant & @timeoutdubai for best steakhouse; @jgsteakhousedubai is the steak place for you. #soulselections #soulfood #steakhouse #steak
💡 Q:What do you expect from the restaurant of an art museum? A: Food Art This piece of art is a burrata salad with pomelo, tomatoes & edible flowers, and it tastes as good as it looks! #soulselections #soulfood #louvreabudhabi #louvre
A Japanese coffee concept with such a simple yet beautiful branding & inviting decor. 4/5 ⭐️ Ethiopia Lomi Tasha Caffe Latte: Tasting notes of floral, lemon & black tea. 3/5 ⭐️ Iced Spanish Latte: A bit too sweet, couldn’t enjoy the Arabica blend. % Perfect for coffee breaks % #soulselections #soulfood #arabicacoffee #arabica

For those of you who know me, know of my obsession with “Tea on coal”; and while on the hunt for that, Hubby came across a real hidden gem! @aljalbootrstrnt is an Emirati restaurant with a traditional feel, warm decor & relaxing sea view. From a wide selection of biryanis, starters & other items, my favorite is the Jalboot Salad, Fish Foqah, & the Oman Chips Roqaq. Don’t forget to enjoy some luqaimat with the coal tea too! #soulselections #soulfood #uaenationalday46 #emiratifood
