The One about Maria Bonita's Taco Shop
Best thing about writing a food blog is now I have a legitimate excuse to go on regular dining excursions with my favourite foodies! This Saturday, my dover sole mates Haif and Safa, picked Maria Bonita’s Taco Shop for a Mexican mustache bash! I loved everything about Maria Bonita - the company, the food and the service (in that order exactly!) aria My Review Food: We chose not to...
The one about Grand Central
Grand Central,for those of you who haven’t discovered it yet, is a burger joint serving Beef, Chicken and Veggie burgers/mini burgers. The best thing about Grand Central is the ingredients they use to create the burgers - Premium Wagyu Beef, Angus Beef and the highest quality Chicken from Al Ain Farms.

So, my wise friend, I believe the time has come.. 1. Mantoo - Afghani...
The one about Abu Dhabi's hidden gem
Zahrat Al Mada’en is truly a hidden gem in the Tourist Club Area of Abu Dhabi. Not a place to dine in .. Go there for: 1. The Kibbeh Mashwiyeh 2. ”Abdo” - an Indian with a ridiculously good Syrian accent 3. The Qaddafi look-a-like who owns the place Of the many delicious forms Kibbeh comes in I would say that Kibbeh Mashwiyeh, a Syrian recipe, is quickly...
The one at Monte Carlo Beach Club
Musts: Burrata Beetroot Salad with Labneh Scallops with pumpkin puree & green apple Quite good: Wagyu Beef Ravioli w/ mushrooms Disappointing: Fries ( Sweet & French)
