The one about Al Mayass
I’ve been waiting in anticipation for the Armenian restaurant Al Mayass to open ever since my hungry ramadan days. I’ve also called the Sheraton Hotel (where I was told it would open) to check if it had opened yet? When will it open? Why didn’t it?…They had no idea? Why?

All 5 tables were occupied once we came in and we managed to...
The one about Baker & Spice

So, when Baker & Spice opened in Dubai, you can just begin to imagine the nostalgia I felt. Although this outlet does not really have the same menu, it incorporates the same values and concept - Freshly made/baked...
