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.

Izu Bakery – Dubai Mall

Tucked in the corner of grand Galleries Lafayette, Dubai mall is Izu Bakery.
Chef Izu Ani famous for his restaurant concepts has designed a concise menu for Izu Bakery. They offer all day breakfast, salad & burger options.
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.

Chilling At Kava & Chai Al Seef Dubai

Kava & Chai is hugely popular in emirate of Sharjah. I have been to their university city branch and it’s a perfect grab and go outlet.
They recently have opened up at Al Seef Dubai. A larger branch, gorgeous views of creek. I can totally vision myself visiting here more in winters. Enjoying a great cuppa along with some snacks. On my recent visit to this branch I was forced to sit inside because it was so humid in the afternoon. However once inside I was enjoying my delicious detox drink called green veggie blend. Kale, green apples and baby spinach have never tasted so good!
My guest loved his signature chai latte, it was strong and perfect accompaniment to his chicken ceasar salad. I tried out the cauliflower & quinoa salad which was a great portion for the price and tasted so good. We also tried out the halloumi sandwich, pistachios and halloumi a match made in heaven!
Coming to desserts, we tried the oreo red velvet cake. The looks of this one are clearly deceiving. It was moist, the gooey chocolate center and perfectly sweet! this dish was a treat. Our second dessert, the carrot cake was again delicious and lovely!
Kava & chai has range of teas to try from. Their staff members are well aware about the infusions offered and they are more than willing to educate guests of the blends on offer. I would have loved to try these but since I am off caffeine, I couldn’t really taste their lovely selection.
Visit for great views, especially during sunsets and fabulous selection of hot beverages.

Breakfast Stories At Feast, Sheraton Grand

There is a saying that goes like ” have breakfast like a king, lunch like a Prince and dinner like a pauper”. That’s actually quite right because breakfast is the most important meal of the day. What’s better than starting your day at Sheraton Grand’s breakfast buffet?

A blogger friend ( check out Nikki’s blog Gooodcarbs) invited me for this tasting session. At first I was regretting waking up because it was the weekend and it was drizzling too. Parting with my bed was a difficult task but somehow I convinced myself as covering new places excites me.
Sheraton’s grand breakfast is like none other. They have live counters for pancakes your way, waffles and even stir fried noodles! All made fresh! The super sweet manager gave us a detailed tour of the entire spread! They had more variety than even some of buffets around the town.
For the health freaks there is also a gluten free and fat free option and no this was not on request, they always have these available considering the soaring demand. There is also a wide selection of fresh juices and smoothies for all.
My only dislike from the the range was Indian section as I felt better choice of dishes would have done justice to the cuisine. Nevertheless there were so many options that If you miss out on out section it shouldn’t be a big deal. Absolutely love the addition of ice cream to the breakfast buffet. Yes you read it right! They have delicious variety of ice creams ranging from sorbets to classics like chocolate.

If you are a UAE resident then you can get enjoy this grand breakfast treat for a little as Aed 69 by presenting your emirates ID.
Thanking Grand Sheraton always smiling staff for being so cooperative and letting us take delicious images of their stunning dishes. Everything is made in house freshly except the gluten free products which are sourced from trusted bakeries. Our server Viktor, an energetic chap was full of information about the buffet and did brief us on many of details.
Overall, Sheraton Grand’s breakfast buffet is a steal deal! Not saying this just because I was invited but because I have attended many corporate breakfasts at grandest of hotels. Either the prices are higher for the ones that offer everything like Feast restaurant does or there are limited vegetarian options. I am definitely going back especially for their bakery items such as tarts and croissants( I hope they start retailing them ’cause so good mmm..)
Grand Breakfast buffet deal is available at Feast restaurant. Visit Sheraton website ,  call +97145034444 for reservations or visit Feast - Sheraton Grand Hotel Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato  for menu

The promotion is as easy as 1,2,3;

  1. Bring an animal or Natural History Book- 1 per person
  2. Get snapped with your book by our campaign banner

Al Ain Zoo Director General, His Excellency Ghanim Al Hajeri said “In many ways visiting a zoo is like reading a book. Both can provide a fun and engaging learning experience that opens your eyes to the beauty and truth of the world around you – and once you’re hooked it’s always part of your life.”

He added “We’re proud to be able to offer this initiative in support of these two great educational causes; reading and science. The zoo is a great place with beautiful green spaces in which to enjoy your favourite books and to encourage children to find their joy of reading, and what better topic to read about than our natural world.”

So here it is the fruit of our four hour labor..Pretzel Chocolate Profitroles.

Hope you liked my interpretation of a good day. Follow me on Instagram for more amazing images.
