Good news for all you crepes and waffles lovers. Choco monarch is now in Jumeirah J3 Mall!

Cozy ambiance, same delicious chocolate creations and more can now be enjoyed! I tried sushi crepe roll, chocolate brownie with ice cream and my guest tried out the the breakfast crepe and chocolate waffles. We paired our dishes with hot chocolate and oreo milkshake.

Desi Pizza From OvenStory

I was at office when I discovered that ovenstory is now in Dubai! I had tried them on my last vacation to India so I knew what to expect from their pizzas! The sauces are packed with flavor and the pizzas are generously topped with cheese 🙂

Ordered a large one because I knew that the moment the pizza waft is in pantry, a few of my lovely colleagues will definitely want some. I tried of the cottage tikka pizza (paneer pizza) very desi and delicious! I am a regular now because their pizzas are just so good! To those who arent use to spicy or power packed flavors the pizzas from here will be intense for those but they are definitely different and worth a try!

Indo Chinese Affair At Gypsy Chinese

I have visited Gypsy chinese before. It was located in Grand excelsior hotel. They have now branched out to Karama now.
The decor is inspired by the country, China. Accents of red and golden can be seen throughout the restaurant.
Coming to my favourite part, the food. We loved most of the dishes we tried. For appetizers we opted for kung pao tofu, sauteed wontons , paneer twin pepper and chicken. Our favourite was the kung pao tofu which is perfect for vegans as well!
For mains, I opted for wok vegetables & my guest opted for General Tao’s special chicken. Both dishes paired really well with fried chicken rice & sizzling vegetarian noodles.
 After all of that scrumptious food, we did end up trying thr delicious desserts too. I tried the chocolate cake whilst my guest opted for sizzling brownie. No prizes for guessing that the brownie was a clear winner!
Overall we loved most of dishes we tried. Service was a bit slow but we were still satisfied as we were been informed that every dish is made to order.
If you are looking for indo-Chinese fix around Karama, I’d definitely suggest to try out Gypsy Chinese.

Vegetarian Delights At Original Wings & Rings

I know ya’all probably thinking that I have gone bonkers to include vegetarian and wings in the title of this post. Well let me tell you that I certainly have included both because OWAR does cater to vegetarians well. Now they don’t have a full fledged menu or extensive variety but its decent to make a three course meal.

My guest who is a hardcore non vegetarian truly enjoyed his chicken wings with parmesan and garlic sauce whilst I tried out the artichoke and spinach dip, cheese fries, jalepeno poppers, onion rings, fried pickles and curly fries. All of the dishes I tried are great to pair with drinks offered.

For our mains, my guest opted for a ceasar salad and I went for the vegetarian quesadilla which was absolutely delicious and one of the best quesadillas I have had across UAE! The flavors were perfect and the portion is great too!

For our desserts we opted for chocolate brownie and apple taquitos. The brownie was the perfect consistency and I absolutely enjoyed! The taquitos were delicious too but a bit tart for my taste.

The best part about our visit? Aside from awesome food and killer music, they have an awesome outdoor seating option. My guest enjoyed the shisha whilst I was busy at the foosball table. The service is great and our server Mr. Damien was very knowledgeable and friendly.

Visit for? Friends and family outings, Shisha, ladies nights (30% off on food and bevs btw) , reasonable booze, wings eating competitions!

PS: Visited already? looking to gift a similar experience to your mates? OWAR also offers gift certificates that you can now gift to your foodie friends.

Acappella, newest bar/restaurant concept is offering some crazy cocktails & delicious food! We tried many of their dishes and every dish exceeded expectations. Our favorites, from the vegetarian perspective were kung pao cauliflower, vegetarian sliders & vegetarian tacos. My guest enjoyed their tandoori chicken & chicken wings dish as well.
We were wowed by the desserts we tried. Be it the super delicious sticky toffee pudding and banana ice cream. Our other dessert, chocolate sphere with spiced rum sauce was a show stopper too!

Restaurant Review: Bombay Chowpatty

Hey everyone! Apologies for the long blogging hiatus, I have been travelling, running around for my brother’s wedding preps and now back to base loaded with work.

Today I am talking about a fast food restaurant that is way popular and almost available in malls around. If you are looking for inexpensive quality Indian meal, check out Bombay Chowpatty!

Over the years, I have tried many of their dishes. My favorite always being the spring dosa. Its not only south indian, they do have some good options for those who love having full north indian meals. Almost all the dishes are below AED30 which makes it a great dining/delivery option. Their deliveries do need improvement due to delays but otherwise a decent restaurant option to try.

Review: Healthy Little Secrets Cafe

Healthy little secrets is a quaint cafe with some very delicious goodies! 
Most of their menu is based on salads or sandwiches. We opted for organic sprouted quinoa salad, pulled chicken sandwich, classic avocado toast. We absolutely loved and devoured the huge salad portion that came with lime and coriander dressing. My guest loved his pulled chicken sandwich as well. Our desserts were khasha cream & carrot cake. While we did not enjoy the khasha as none of us are buckwheat fans, we loved the healthy version of carrot cake and would mind going back for the same.
For a drinks, my guest opted for whey protein shake in almond milk & I opted for pink Pitaya smoothie in regular milk. Both were decent enough in taste. We loved the chocolate chai bubble tea that we had with our desserts.
Overall, HSL is a great cafe option for deliveries & takeaways. The prices are tad higher than usual but considering the fact that they have completely organic ingredients one wouldn’t mind paying additional.

Al Seef’s Gem- KP Vibes

Kailash Parbat, a well known vegetarian restaurant brand that has branches across the globe has launched a new concept restaurant known as KP Vibes

Located at Al Seef Dubai, this licensed restaurant offers interesting twist to Indian cuisine.
We tried their famous dishes from menu, pav bhaji fondue, paneer chow chow, paneer tikka pizza, thai green curry, vegetarian chowmein & paneer sizzler. All the dishes are great quantity wise & quality wise. We loved the chowmein noodles & the sizzler too. However the pav bhaji fondue could have been accompanied better with soft pav rather than croutons. The pizza had great flavor but the crust was overcooked and hadn’t risen well. We loved our desserts, the malai kulfi was delicious & jalebi rabri too.
If you are seated at the terrace you can also enjoy drinks from the bar that opens 2pm onward. Absolutely stunning views and you can also choose to be seated indoors where they have live music bands and shows. They do have a good range of non alcoholic drinks as well.
With stunning bar settings, killer drinks & gorgeous views Kp Vibes nails the ambiance quotient. They do have a kids play area as well which is free for diners. The restaurant is family friendly & wheelchair friendly as well. They have a elevator for those who wish to visit the bar area.

We tried the fried egg with avocado for guest, avocado toast with labneh for myself & special tomato & Goat’s cheese salad. For viennoiseries we tried cheese croissant & almond chocolate croissant. To end our meal we had French toast.

Whatever we ordered sounds so simple, however simplest dishes are the most complex to master. We loved the goats cheese & tomato salad and also the French toast which is the best one I have had till date.
If you haven’t already, do visit this delicious bakery & try out their dishes. Service was spot on & the woodworks decor adds a nice touch.
