Although it goes by the name Mahesh “Lunch” Home, it is perfect for a fine dinner with family and friends. With its large variety of seafood, from shrimps and lobsters, to every single type of fish imaginable, this Indian restaurant is by far one of my favorites! Mahesh Lunch Home has the best seafood soup: a family favorite, chef recommended, is the Crab Maryland Soup- a light broth with veggies and crab, cooked to perfection. Their mouth watering Tandoori King Prawns are unbelievable! To end the delicious meal, definitely recommend the Sol Kadi- it is made with kokum-a plant that comes from the mangosteen family, ginger, salt and coconut water. It has just the right amount of sweet and sourness and is the perfect way to finish up a heavy dinner.
When you’re tired of eating out, come home to Yoko’s! Yoko’s has the best sizzlers in town- my personal favorite being the Pepper Steak Sizzler, with cheese and side of creamy mashed potatoes and spanish rice: a heavenly combination! Another one of my favorites is the tomato soup! It’s perfect to enjoy on a cold winter night. Mmm! And, of course, the best way to end the night is with the Sizzling Brownie and Ice Cream- one of my childhood favs! The hot, sizzling brownie, topped with cold ice cream and warm fudge sauce, is an iconic combination and the perfect way to end the meal!
This world-famous take-out has received lots of popularity lately from children and teens specifically. With its oozy cheese burgers and loaded fries, this place has been a hit with everyone, kids and adults alike! My personal favorite is the cocoa burger, sour, with a hint of spice! Also, conveniently, they have their own website, which makes it easy to order online, if you are looking for something to enjoy while watching a movie on a Saturday night. Mmm!
Settle down to enjoy a walk through a home-style barbecue…
Hot, crispy corn is brought to the table along with delicious char-grilled shrimp- one of my personal favorites! Furthermore, their chili sauce adds tanginess and spiciness to the starters. As more and more skewers, bursting with flavor, pile onto the grill, it feels like you are at a barbecue! The live station on your table gets you to interact and gives it the true barbecue feel. Another one of my favorites is the Kiddie Korner, with fluffy cotton candy and flavored snow cones- mmmm! Although it is packed with sugar, this is definitely a guilty pleasure. Absolute barbecue is an absolute delight!!
Tarts, breads, soups, sandwiches- you name it, they have it! Their large variety in tarts, which is my favorite dessert, makes me love the place even more! Another one of my favorites is their French Onion Soup- a not-so-heavy meal, but filling enough! There’s still room for a good cup of iced caramel coffee. Great place to enjoy a good book, while chatting to your friends or even completing a school assignment! With free wifi, what more can you ask for? Highly recommend PAUL Café if you are looking for a quiet place to study and perhaps have a quick bite while you’re there- their pastries are absolutely irresistible! Why, they even make custom orders and deliver it to your doorstep! If that isn’t amazing , i don’t know what is!
The prestigious Burj Khalifa overlooks this elegant diner, its shimmer and sparkle lighting up the place. The cool breeze drifts past as the aroma of flavor mesmerizes you. Traditional kebabs and fish are elevated to extravagant, delicious dishes, with sides like crisp bread and creamy hummus!
A favorite among all is the golden brown quail, cooked to perfection, its succulent meat melting in your mouth. Even though most dishes were unique, the range of desserts could have been more interesting. However, overall, I enjoyed the experience and, although it is on the more expensive side, the quality and quantity makes up for that. Definitely worth a try!
Hidden in the very depths of Dubai Mall, this secret garden provides the most unique and innovative burgers, sliders, fries and dessert!
From chocolate, coffee sliders, to fried mac and cheese, Parkers definitely encourages crazy flavor combinations- my personal favorite being the Nutella pizza! Who ever thought chocolate on pizza would taste so heavenly? Another favorite is the lotus drama- with a light, fluffy sponge cake and pure white whipped cream, topped with delicious, creamy caramel sauce that melts in the mouth. Definitely a dish to come back for! Furthermore, the cheesy fries are a taste of heaven- they are to die for! Although the portions are small, I always believe in quality over quantity! Parkers is highly recommended by everyone, old and young, because there is something for everyone to enjoy!
Beef, ribs, wings, burgers- you name it, they have it! The divine aroma of southern food engulfs you as you enter food heaven…
Mmm!My personal favorite are the chicken wings- delicious and delectable! As you take a bite, your mouth explodes with flavors and your mind is blown at the tenderness and juiciness of these seemingly simple chicken wings. They are to die for! Moreover, the award winning ribs have definitely improved in flavor over the past years! Chilis, being my all time favourite restaurant since it opened, has definitely encountered a few changes over time- the best being the ribs, which have elevated in tang and spice! Definitely another one of my personal favs!
Ultimately, the best way to end the meal is with their delectable, delicious desserts! I have forever been in love with their traditional Brownie and Ice Cream dish! With a hot sizzling brownie, topped with snowy vanilla ice cream, I don’t think life could get any better! Highly recommended.
Al Ustadi Kebab
Located in the busy area of Bur Dubai, Al Ustadi Kebab has been a hit! Its cosy atmosphere and sensational history, has driven many of our favourite celebrities to this famous restaurant for a true taste of Dubai.
From delicious, juicy kebabs, to sweet, delicate rice, they offer everything you could possibly want in a traditional meal. Usually, kebabs have either too much spice, or not enough, but from my perspective, it has just the right amount- not to spicy, not too bland: perfect for both kids and adults alike!
Furthermore, their fluffy bread is to die for! Especially with the mouth watering chicken with a side of crisp fries!
And what do you need to finish up such a delicious meal? A perfect drink of course! Al Ustadi Kebab’s black, mint tea is the ideal way to end the night. Goodnight guys xo
