Brunch Review: Accents -Intercontinental, Dubai Marina

We are suckers for brunch on weekends. It gives us an excuse to wake up late and spend those lazy hours eating. There’s a whole page dedicated to brunch spots in Dubai, which you can visit here.

So last weekend, we headed to the Funusual Brunch at Accents, Intercontinental Hotel. The brunch promises multi cuisine food on display, some live stations, and booze, of course, like how the meal is done here. All for a price of AED 445. (AED 295 for soft beverages is the one we opted for) Continue reading “Brunch Review: Accents -Intercontinental, Dubai Marina”

Fine Dining or Casual Eatery? Bread Street Kitchen, Atlantis

When Gordon Ramsay announced the opening of his new restaurant, Bread Street Kitchen (BSK), last year, many of us who have been watching the Chef on our television sets from childhood, rejoiced. Gordon, who is popular for starring in Hell’s Kitchen and Masterchef is also the owner of BSK in London.

The venture here is situated in Atlantis, The Palm which needs no introduction to anyone living in the U.A.E. The restaurant hosted full tables with most of the crowd from The West, we could also spot a couple of tables with Arabs seated. Not bad for a weekday! Continue reading “Fine Dining or Casual Eatery?

Bangkok under AED 4500 for 2

I’m just back from my trip to Bangkok, Thailand, a place that is well-known for its bustling atmosphere and of course, food. I’m always on the lookout for new places to visit at affordable rates and Bangkok is sure one of them.
