ECLAIR – DUBAI

…السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Jumeira Lake Towers offers a variety of new cafés, patisseries, restaurants and many more start up companies! I really just want to spend a month there to try out all the new things!

Here is one of the new patisserie dedicated entirely to éclairs! The éclairs are high quality with fresh & fine ingredients. Though they need to be consumed in the next 24 hours after purchase to enjoy it (suggested by them) !

These mini éclairs are the perfect size for fancy gatherings or casual meetups with friends ! They are creamy and soft. Éclair offer 12 different flavors ranging from milk chocolate and passion fruit to Japanese green matcha tea.

Price: Each mini éclair is for 8.50 DHS while the regular is for 19 DHS.

Here is the box that we bought:

KRUSH BURGER – DUBAI

…السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

I think I am the last person in Dubai to try Krush Burger!

This joint has a short menu with 4 burger choices, french fries or sweet potato tots, milkshakes and soft drinks. You could order the two mini burgers as a combo with a side (46 DHS). And you can refill your soft drinks. The bill came out to be 104 DHS (for 2 people).

This was our meal, they would put everything in a tray but it looked SO good.
krush1

French Fries & Sweet Potato Tots :
The french fries was crispy from the outside but soft from the inside, just how I like them! The sweet potato tots was something different than the usual. But I am not sure how well it goes with the burgers. Would definitely go for french fries only next time!
krush2

Original & Philly :
The original consisted of grilled onion, lettuce, tomato, american cheese & house sauce. The Philly consisted of grilled mushrooms and onions, aged provolone, & red pepper aioli.
krush4

Buffalo Chicken & Cowbell :
The Buffalo Chicken was by far my favorite. If you enjoy something spicy then this is the burger for you. Cowbell had beef bacon, crispy onions, smoked gouda & BBQ sauce.

Personally, I would recommend a person to try the Buffalo Chicken & Cowbell with french fries. Things might get messy because their burgers are saucy.

Details :
Opening Hours : Sun-Sat 11:00AM – 10:00PM
Location : Between Murooj Rotana and Cafe2go, financial centre road.

A DAY IN KUWAIT

…السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

I thought it would be a good idea to do a post about restaurants a person should visit if they had “one day” to spend in a country. Kuwait is the first of this kind of a series. Kuwait offers a variety of options to explore. This post would include a place for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

For breakfast we visited a place called “Cocoa Room” which will soon be opened in Dubai (The Galleria). Be careful because it is only open from 8AM to 12PM.

– Caramelized Hot Chocolate with lots and lots of marshmallow:
CocoaRoom1

– Banoffee pancake with vanilla ice-cream:
CocoaRoom3

– Oreo pancake with chocolate ice-cream:
Cocoaroom2

For lunch we visited “Pizzetta” which is located next to Cocoa Room. They offer unique types of pizza that you would not find anywhere! We were seated outside while it was nice and sunny.

– Burratta (4.500 KD):
pizzetta1

– Mexicano Pizza (4.500 KD):
pizzetta2

– Cheese Burger Pizza (5.950 KD):
pizzetta3

For dinner we headed over 360 Mall and ate in “B+F Open Fire Grill”. As you enter the restaurant, it is dark with loud music. Since we were a very big group, we were seated in a place that is almost covered. You are then greeted with a complimentary drink (apple juice) and menu.

– Tokyo Salad (4 KD):

– Black Pepper Tenderloin Lollipops (4.5 KD):

SMILING BKK – DUBAI

…السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

One of the famous affordable Thai restaurants in Dubai. Known for its funny menu, unique atmosphere and good food! Smiling BKK is definitely one of my favorite Thai restaurants in Dubai.

bkk1

When entering the restaurant the only thing you wanted to do is just look around. There are so many things hung on the wall, mostly funny Mona Lisa portraits! As soon as you enter you are greeted and given the HUGE menu with a toy gun. YES A TOY GUN. This toy gun is used to call your waiter/ress so you do not look stupid just raising your hand and no one is looking at you. Everyone hates just waving at a waiter/ress and them not looking at you. The restaurant is fairly darker than any usual restaurant.

bkk2

Here are pictures of the variety of the things we ordered, that I would also recommend you trying. You can choose the “percentage” of how spicy you would like your food to be. We usually say “50%”. The bill came out to be 225 Dirhams.

– Som Tum on the right, Laab Gai / Nuea on the left.

– Nuea Yang

– Chicken Green Curry with jasmine rice

– Pad Si Ew (Seafood)

– Mango with coconut sticky rice

Why we keep going back? The food is authentic Thai food that is very flavorful and cooked well! I never went there and was disappointed by the food or the service.

ASHUK ICE CREAM – RAK

…السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

What other great way to beat the summer heat here in the UAE other than some ice cream. I have heard A LOT about this place in Ras Al Khaimah called Ashuk Ice Cream. Since as a family we had a weekend getaway their, we decided that we would not get a better opportunity to try this ice cream.

I think I was too excited and in the beginning had a full spoon which of course led to a very bad brain freeze! Eeekk … Anyways after awhile, eating more and more I started to realize how unique that ice cream was! It was the perfect combination of ingredients: vanilla, mango, pineapple, pistachio, pomegranate and more! I do not know how the person that invented this ice cream made it work but it did! It is not like anything else I have tried … Every spoon consisted of soft texture from the ice-cream and crunchy parts by the pistachios etc …

IMG_0097 copy

I finished the medium cup all by myself, but there was enough for two to share. There was three different sizes and the prices ranged from 6/8/10 dirhams. Personally, I would not go from Dubai to RAK for an ice cream because it is way too far for my liking ! But if I ever go back for a little getaway I would definitely revisit the place. I would recommend anyone around that area to give it a go.

HAPPY TASTING.
