Little Bangkok
11 hours ago 

I usually always go to the other Little Bangkok branch in Media City or get delivery from them but I like how these guys are spreading around town. I came in for lunch today and it looks pretty much like the other branch, just a little smaller. Srvice was very friendly and it did not take long to get our meal.

I kept it light for lunch so all I had was a soup and a salad. I had the tom yum goong and the yum tua pu. Both were really good Actually the salad was excellent. I usually order the Som Tom (papaya salad) but this salad I think is much better.

I am a big fan of these guys. For great Thai food at a reasonable price in Dubai I think they are the best.

So being a total meat eater I got drug into this place kicking and screaming...what do you mean its vegan (what is vegan?)?. But being a pretty open minded dude and feeling a little on the chunky side I gave it a try. I had to be explained what vegan is and what RAW means...basically no animal products what so ever (even cheese) and the food is cooked no hotter then I believe 43c so the food doesn't loose all its powers.

I was first handed this smoothy thing which was actually really tasty so I was cool with that. Then onto my entree. I had cauliflower rice with some kind of vegetable curry thingy. It sounds way more painful then it is and once again surprisingly it was good. The only thing that kind of weirded me out is that when the food comes out it is not hot so that RAW thing kicks in and you get a luke warm meal. Taste wise it was good. For desert I had this mint cake thing and it basically tasted like mint chocolate chip ice cream which was good as well. Overall I was really surprised with the food. I wouldn't eat here everyday but honestly once a week is probably really good for you and a nice change up from shoving my face with burgers and steak all day.

Also the staff was great, very friendly. I had a chance to meet the owner which was nice because I needed to be explained a lot on what every thing was which she was more then happy to help. Also they have a little store that sells vegan RAW products as well.

Jazz at Pizza Express
22/04/2014 

I have heard a ton about Pizza express and how it can get wild on the weekends so my first time here I decided to come for lunch....it was dead. Not saying that as a bad thing, there was just know one in the resturant. I do like what Jazz at Pizza Express is doing though. It is a really laid back restaurant plus they serve booze. I hear at night the have live bands and this place gets bumping.

As a pizza restaurant in JLT the pizza was not bad. We had the American Pizza which was decent, not crazy good but ok. To start we had the grand chicken caesar salad, crema di funghie patate and dough balls pizzaexpress. All were pretty good as well. Overall it was an ok place for lunch so I will be abck on the weekend for dinner and the live music.

Umi Sushi
21/04/2014 

My second time trying this place and so good so far. Actually I had them deliver it this time and they were right on time...takes about an hour. We tried the Sashimi Large Platter, spider maki, salmon skin maki and the crazy crunch maki. All were good but I do not think I would try the crazy crunchy maki again, it was a little mushy. The platter was great because they let me substitute some of the things I do not like for some of the ones I do which was nice.

I have tried delivery from a couple of sushi restaurants in Dubai and I will give it to these guys being the best. It is not 5 star sushi, but for delivery sushi it is more then fine. The sushi is fresh and made well.

Elia
11/04/2014 

What an amazing affordable restaurant. I will definitely say I have a man crush on Elia. Such a beautiful homely Greek restaurant, who would have thought in Dubai. Located in the Majestic Hotel so I was a little skeptical because the only time I ever come here is to go on a pub crawl in Bur Dubai and we come to The Music Room.

Walking in I was pleasantly surprised, defiantly a homely mom and pop feel to it which was great. Not a huge restaurant which is nice as well, they have seating inside and out. We sat inside which was really nice and had a great waitress. We did not know what we wanted so the manager who is Greek helped us out. We actually ordered about 5 appetizers which was plenty for 2 people so we did not even get to order our mains. We also had a nice Greek bottle of wine (311aed) witch I have never had before either which was a little pricey but ok. We had the octopus, green quasadilla thingy, feta cheese and a couple more that I forgot. All were exceptional and more then filling.

All in all the bill came out to be 510AED with the 300AEd bottle of wine so it is more then affordable. I will definitely be coming back here again in the near future.

Medcare Orthopaedics & Spine Hospital
10/04/2014 

Like all UAE doctors I am skeptical to begin with but I have had this lingering back issue for awhile and all the physio docs I have seen have not really cut it yet or maybe I just wanted the opinion of a real doctor. Anyways I thought I would try Medcare Orthopedics since it is recently newly opened on Sheikh Zayed road and it looked professional.

The facility was nice and it was buzzing with people with all sort of issues so I was feeling better about my choice since there was actual people in there. I called the day before to get an appointment so I was not waiting forever which was a good call. I filled out the normal paperwork and settled in untiled they called me.

Basically the doctor looked me over for about 30 seconds and recommended I take some anti inflamatories and call him if it does not get any better. I don't know if it is just the injury I have, I pulled a muscle in my back and it just wont go away, or what but I really wanted a definitive answer from him on how to fix it which he just said it takes time and you need to stretch. I kind of feel short changed but maybe that is the answer. Anyways I am doing what he says so lets see in a couple of weeks. Overall the the experience was ok and the facility was nice.

Sumo Sushi & Bento
08/04/2014 

I have not been back to Sumo Sushi in awhile so I decided to grab some take away this time. Lunch time is still caos in this place so I suggest calling ahead instead of just walking in and ordering. I had the chirashi but basically asked them to just have salmon and tuna, the other white fish they usually use is not that good...stick with basics. Overall still ok sushi at a reasonable price.

This place is surprisingly good. They are an Japanese restaurant that covers a bit of everything in Asian food. I had some tuna maki and salmon maki rolls as well as some salmon sashimi and tuna sashimi, both were fresh and good so no complaints. I also had some vietnamese spring rolls and honey chicken that hit the spot as well. Also the pancake duck is decent, not amazing but good enough. I did the take away thing so can't comment on the delivery and dine in aspect but so far so good. I will be hitting them up again. Side note they were a little pricey, I think our bill came out to be around 250aed

Mekong
05/04/2014 

What an awesome restaurant. First of all it is the only restaurant in Dubai that gives you a koozie for your beer. Don't let the koozie fool you, it is a really nice restaurant. Mekong is an asian restaurant that serves a lot of different cuisine, Chinese, Thai and Vietnamese. It is really cool decorated and we ate outside ion these rickshaw tables which were fun.

The service and the food was really good. We ordered a bunch of different things but the duck pancakes, rice and chicken leaf thingy and the sticky rice for desert was amazing. I really like this hotel, it is really well done. After dinner for a night cap you can go down to The Beach House for some cocktails which is great. Overall some of the best asian food I have had in Dubai and surprising not that expensive. Per person I would say its around 250aed with booze.

Iris Dubai

I had not been back here in awhile so I decided to try their brunch and it was great. It is an a la carte menu which I like so you don't over do it. They did have a fruit spread where you could help yourself that was chill. They had a bunch of things on the menu, everything from burgers,pancakes, crab salad, eggs benedict, ceviche...you name it.The burger was excellent and so was the quiche. It was a very tame brunch where people where just relaxing, drinking and eating...nothing to crazy. They did have some live music and the guy was amazing. Overall a nice chill brunch to go to.
