There are several routes you can take when driving between Los Angeles and Seattle depending on how much time you have. If you want a more memorable road trip, taking the Pacific Coast Highway (Highway 1) would be the one you’d want to pick. This route was voted as one of the World’s Most Beautiful Drives by National Geographic. The best way to do this is to really take your time and stretch your drive over a few days so you can take it all in. Guaranteed to be one of the most instagrammable road trips you’ll take.
The latest addition to the Dubai food scene from famed Chef Izu is now open at Emirates Golf Club. Carine, named after his wife, serves up some mouth-watering French-Mediterranean dishes. The restaurant’s bright interiors, floor to ceiling windows, modern furnishings and views of the golf course certainly add to the dining experience.
The ‘LAZY GRAZING LUNCH’ every Saturday at the Graze Gastro Grill will have you enjoying a relaxed and rather unusual dining experience with an endless flow of delicacies served at your table. With floor to ceiling French windows, rustic urban decor and indoor-outdoor seating, this restaurant creates a welcoming atmosphere despite the lack of diners (which I am amazed as to why?). Head chef, Juan Pablo Dominges, has put together some wonderful dishes using locally sourced ingredients with a dash of his Mexican heritage thrown into the mix. The menu changes week to week but a few crowd favorites stay on.
3 Fils, a quaint eatery over looking Jumeirah’s fishing harbour, has been the talk of the town for quite sometime.

Chef Akmal Anuar, a Singaporean native, heads up the kitchen and is the man behind all the magic!
Not many people know about Jeju Island! I didn’t even know it existed until I began researching places to visit in South Korea. Jeju is just 64 kilometers south of the Korean Peninsula and is sometimes referred to as ‘the Hawaii of Korea’. It is also on the New 7 Wonders of Nature and is a popular get-away destination in Korea.

The iconic Bangkok-based Indian restaurant Gaggan, has been ranked #1 on the Asia’s top 50 list for three years straight and came in #7 on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list this year. The restaurant is tucked away in a narrow inconspicuous street – until you get to the building, which is a majestic house with a beautiful glass pane front and lamps giving a warm glow. The interiors are set with white wicker chairs, wooden tables and high ceiling fans – almost retro in its feel. It sets the scene for the dinner that is to come – elaborate, sophisticated and very creative.
