Grapeskin – tucked away in the courtyard of La Ville hotel, is a contemporary grape bar and kitchen located in Citywalk, one of Dubai’s trendiest neighborhoods.
Ostro – the traditional Italian name of a southerly wind that blows over the Mediterranean Sea – seems to be Barsha Height’s (neighborhood in Dubai) best kept secret. I am of course, not talking about the wind but the restaurant! From the moment I walked into Ostro, it felt like I was transported right back to a beautiful little tavern in Mykonos, Greece.
I was recently invited by the wonderful people of Good Magazine for a ‘Flavors of Peru’ cooking masterclass hosted at the JW Marriott Marquis, Dubai – Garden Restaurant.
Park House on Kite Beach is definitely now my favorite spot for coffee and a healthy bite! It is a gorgeous space decorated in nautical colors with splashes of yellow – the outdoor picnic tables and benches sends out all the right beach vibes!
It’s al fresco time in Dubai these days…. Well, most days. Ideal to sip a coffee outdoors and if it’s by the beach, it’s a win-win.
Grub (slang for food) and shack –reminiscent of the thatched roofed, no-wall restaurants lining the beaches of Goa, Grub Shack is my new discovery for Goan food. Homestyle cooking of some of Goa’s well-known and most popular fare, Grub Shack is the result of a husband-wife duo who are self-confessed foodies and while their menu offers a whole lot more, I focused on the Goan cuisine. It was well worth the trip. The prices are reasonable and the portions generous. Bon Appetit!
