During a business trip to Dubai i walked into a restaurant called Zaroob which i found that is a Palestinian restaurant it’s the first time for me to have Palestinian food which was quite good. It’s just like Lebanese or Syrian food with a twist.
The food is delicious and feels so fresh. I was going there every day for breakfast for 3 days, on the third day the works where telling me on my way out: See you tomorrow! i told them: oh tomorrow i’m going back home, but next time i’m at Dubai i’ll visit again
So i like the food, the workers there and the decoration was quite nice and cozy. Strongly recommended and you shouldn’t miss their cocktail one of the best i’ve had.
Location: Sheikh Zayed, Jumeirah Tower
Open hours : daily 9am-3am
Phone: 04 327 6060
I became friends with this young boy, quite funny guy or at least he thinks so
Oh yes the Zaroob is the small building (Hut) attached to the Barn.
Jones the Grocer, Australia-based healthy organic restaurant & boutique, is planing to open in Kuwait in 8 months. It’s one of nice places to experience once you are in UAE or Qatar; I find it close to Dean & Deluca concept where you may have nice brunch and finds gourmet products.
The event was about how to order at a restaurant and make your order healthy as possible. The event was at 7 O’clock and since i live relativity near by i decided to take my new 3900 Trek bike and ride to the event
I arrived early as usual, people started coming slow because it wasn’t easy to get to the chef boutique you could get lost but anyway we started the event with the Chef Pall as he gave us advice on how to order in Italian, Mexican, Lebanese and Japanese restaurants because the are the most common restaurant we go to in Kuwait.
Basically you should order food with less calories, fat, sugars and carbs since we can’t control the portion sorta speak and try to odrer the fool freshly cooked and ask the waiter for that. Also ask the waiter to tell you what is in your order.
The best thing i heard in the event was from Chef Pall “learn to dine not to eat in a restaurant” meaning taken a longer time in eating so that you digest the food properly.
Many new restaurants opened in Kuwait lately that are Kuwaiti franchises which i really like
We received an email from Mr. Joe the marketing manager of Zee Burger inviting us to try them out at the Palms.
So on a Thursday i picked up the gang and went on our way
When we first arrive i really didn’t know what to think of this place -Zee Burger- i just gave it the benefit of the doubt
I asked for Mr. Joe we introduced our selves and sat on a table and he started explaining the Zee Burger concept.
Let’s get to the food
Mr. Joe was kind enough to order us all the menu :/ thank god i was prepared i brought friends
All the salads are very nice just like Maki’s salads but stay away from the Chicken Caesar salad
Nice Salmon try it
The above chicken wings are not that bad
Zee Burger time !! look to give you the bottom line order one or all of the following burgers
The Spicy bits
the other burgers are not that much
As for the fries i only enjoyed the sweet potato fries (Sweet Taters) southern accent
Dessert ! yes
The Brownies with the vanilla scoop is nice but not that special ]
Yup i saved the best for last the popcorn pancakes are a must have
When you try out the place please give us a comment and let us know what you liked and how did you find the place. C ya
Last week mrdirector80 & I went to Missoni hotel to try out their new menu since we heard that there was a celebrity chef visiting and created a new menu
For those of you who don’t know Cucina is an Italian restaurant with the original taste of Italy
Cucina Chef Claudio greeted us when we were seated at the table – such a nice person – i told him please get us sample size dishes so we can try the most we can … but before that let me talk about the restaurant it self.
The interior design of Cucina is very lovely and cozy, the staff is Italian so if you know how to speak Italian that would be great to show off in front of your friends.
Now let’s start with the food dude
mrdirector80 and i had the same drink its ginger with parmigiana but don’t hate me i didn’t get it’s name :/ i had two, yes its that good.
First on the table was the Calamari & Zucchine – of curse sample size as we ordered. I do recommend this as a starter. Let’s carry on.
Then we had “Insalata Tiepida di Gamberoni & Carpaccio di Cernia con Insalata di Finocchi e Melograno” yes the name is too long for a plat to small mrdirector80 liked it but personally i didn’t like it at all not recommended from my side.
As i was looking at my un-finished previous plat “Carpaccio di Manzo con Rucola e Parmigiano & Insalata di Pollo e Peperoni, Condimento al Balsamico” arrived at our table. It was good but not the kind i would come to Cucina to order it again. Don’t be disappointed it gets better.
We had a date with “Tonnarelli con Gamberi e Pomodorini” next, it was one of the best things that hit our table, simply its a must have.
The “Tagliatelle al Ragu di Manzo & Gnocchi Patate ai Quattro Formaggi” was after highly recommended. when i a had it and tasted it i didn’t know what was i eating but it was delishes.
By fare “Orata alle Olive Nere e Balsamico” was the best thing we had, if you like Italian sea food you must try this one
We are almost done bear with me as you see and drool on the above picture of “Filetto di Vitello con Purea di Patate e Salsa ai Funghi” yes Italian meat ball :p it was so nice that i eat it before taken the picture thanks to mrdirector80 told me “Hey take the picture first!
Finally the dessert “Tiramisu” i have one thing to say about it which i told the Chef, its not layered, i do it better sorry guys layered it better a layer of the cream then a layer of biscuits and the same thing again.
I do like Cucina i would go there again give it a try and let me know what you think dear foodies see ya
Its an exciting post for me so last weekend i was in Dubai, who was following the blog on Twitter and/or Instagram know
I arrived Friday early morning and was at the Armani about 10:30 am there was a choice of having the hotel pick me up from the airport by a Bentley but that would cost A.D. 500 so i didn’t go with since i payed a lot for the room :/
As we entered we were greeted, our luggage cared and seated for check-in were the check-in procedure really took long because we came too early :/ so about 11 am we entered our room
Everything in the hotel is Armani design i’m not talking about the staff uniform and talking about chaser, spoons lights, rugs perfumes everything (o_O)
The room was so stylish (of course) where i think there was a Japanese inspiration or influence where the TV, Minibar, closet and bathroom doors are sliding doors just like the Japanese architectural.
Upon check-in we were assigned a lifestyle manager that take care of all our needs (a fancy way to say butler ) he gave us his number to call him anytime if we needed anything and she explained the features of the room.
I love the Armani bathroom i don’t i have a thing for fancy bathroom. In the shower the water come from around the sealing light so when the water hits you you light up amazing.
Also during our stay we used Armani Spa and the treatment was so pampering (دلع) i didn’t want it to finish.
What’s great about the Armani is not just the design or facilities, the staff were very nice and the location is just perfect if you want to go shopping at Dubai mall it’s a 2 minute walking distance, even for business its great and the restaurants are waaaw, we had lunch at the Japanese restaurant there called “Hashi” we were seated at the tiers in front of Dubai mall fountain. By the way Hashi means Chop Sticks in Japanese
The experience was amazing almost perfect if it wasn’t for the delay we faced at check-in. I highly recommend the Armani you should try it out or try their restaurants.
Since last week i was trying to make this post about my new favorite dessert Macarons ;D and my favorite flavor is pistachio which is what i’m making my review on.
The restaurants that i used for the Macarons review are:
Chocolate & Macarons
All of the Macarons are Pistachio flavored and of course the review will be my opining on the price and taste
I went on shopping hunt for the Pistachio macarons i made stops at 360 Mall, The Avenues and Marina Mall to get the Mac’s
Now let’s talk about the appointment’s i couldn’t find the size that i wanted to compare the mac’s with, some were big and some were small and i wanted the small one’s but any way.
Laduree = 0.600 KD small 1.459 KD big
Chocolate & Macarons = 0.250 small
Fauchon = can’t remember small
Paul = 1.200 KD big
Have a look at them
I laid them all next to each other took the pic and then took them to a trip inside my body ;D
Laduree and Paul where the best, where Chocolate & Macaron and Fauchon where the worst (sorry guys i know u had high hopes)
The problem with them is that they were not fresh and tasted like they where old comparing with Laduree and Paul.
Overall price and taste Paul is the best macaron but i have to say if you don’t care about the price go with Laduree
