Sushi Burrito – Where Japan Meets Mexico

Sushi Burrito is one of those fusion restaurants that offer you a unique combination of Mexican and Japanese.
We visited the emirates towers branch at DIFC that also offers complimentary valet parking( 2 hours )for the diners.
our choices consisted of DIY burrito which wasn’t the best I have had but fresh. The vegetarian sushi was passable too as it wasn’t prepared well. By that I mean the rolls were tied loosely. While few dishes mentioned earlier were a miss, what we really loved was the spicy edmame. The sauce on the edmame was fresh and lip smacking! My vegetarian poke is worth a mention too! Fresh vegetables and crunch from the nuts! I will definitely be ordering the same again.
My guest tried prawn tempura sushi which she loved! She also recommends the chicken katsu poke which was one of her favorites. For sweet endings, we tried the delicious mochi in mango & matcha, both were refreshing!
Overall, Sushiburrito is a great meal spot to try. The service is a bit slow but otherwise really friendly staff. I loved the decor & the long table dining option that is perfect for large families.

They have specials everyday of the week highlighting best dishes from Mexican & Japanese cuisine.

Dessert Heaven – Sukkar

I am a hardcore dessertarian which is why most of the time my instagram is filled with images of various desserts. When an invite from lovely lads at Sukkar popped up, I was super excited to visit them & try out their delicious offerings. Sukkar in Arabic means sugar & the name is apt for sweet treats they offer.

Located next to my favorite Logma, this place was once for brownie box. Same has been replaced with Sukkar.  Whatever I tried, everything was proportionate to price & quantity. We tried, arabian affagato, rose kunefe cheesecake, pretzel brownie, massive snickers milkshake, nutella well, assorted puffs & rosemilk cheesecake.
My favorites will always be the nutella well & pistachio & rose milk cake. I have never had a more moist milk cake.
If you haven’t visited sukkar yet.. Do make sure to try out their desserts once. I would skip multiple meals to try out their sugary goodies ❤
I will let the images talk to you & tempt you!

Italian Piadas In Dubai- Piadera

Piadera offers diners a chance to try the authentic Italian street food (piadas) with their own twist! I recently got a chance to try some of their delights. Read more to know.
They serve delicious dishes such as burrata, calzones & piadas of course. For those who aren’t familiar with piadas, these are flatbreads similar to pita but made in olive oil and cooked on a grid. Slightly thicker so that it can hold all the delicious filling!
We tried foccacia veggie, vegana piada, red calzone and mushroom pasta for our mains. The best of the lot was definitely the red calzone as it was stuffed with fresh mozzarella. I loved the vegana piada too as its made with soft tofu & olives. The pasta were a bit dry for my liking.
Our desserts were fabulous too.The chocolate torte was thick almost like cousin of a brownie. Our tiramisu was classic and delicious as well.
Piadera is best for those looking to try something new for their lunches/dinners. Their prices are reasonable and the variety of vegetarian dishes is great too!

Cheese Dreams At Shami Gourmet

Do you crave middle eastern food when you travel outside the mid-east? I certainly get withdrawal symptoms and start frantic searches for places that serve my beloved manaoushe & falafel. The best of which you can find only in UAE. In UAE is the polar opposite as you will find every nook and corner restaurant serving felafels & Shawarma. Sorting out the best ones in my job.
I was invited to try out levantine vegetarian offerings at Shami Gourmet. They offer a wide range of dishes right from grills to gelatos. They do have decent vegetarian options for one to make a meal of. I tried,out the grilled halloumi, cold mezze platter, Arabic falafel, mix cheese manaoush and fatayer.
The food is excellent for the price they are offered on. Everything Is fairly reasonable and portions are good too! Open style kitchen gives you a glimpse of how you order is made. The staff at all times were wearing gloves and disposal head caps.
For desserts my guests and I opted for snickers gelato & berry cheesecake. The former was my favorite of the two as the gelato was creamy & absolutely on money. The generous staff let me try all the flavours they offer. Mango sorbet & ferrero rockers were my favorite of the lot. The cheesecake on the other hand was decent enough.
The day I visited they were facing some aircon issues. Despite that the staff were making a constant effort to keep all the customers satisfied. They are more popular for their deliveries as I sat there watching deliveries fly out constantly.

Overall, Shami Gourmet is a good option to try. Their prices are reasonable and the dishes are fresh & delicious! Special thanks to chef and team for taking care of all our requirements.

Party Starters with Chips N Dips

What is a party without some chips n dips? Whether it’s a house party or you having chips n dips at burjuman, guaranteed it’s a party in your mouth!
I was sent an amazing range of dips and loads of chips to try. These are just delicious dips, especially the sweet and sour chili cheese which also happens to be their top seller is simply divine! Also the Seven layered Mexican dip is spectacular! Cheese, guacamole, salsa, herbs.. This dip was over in just few minutes!
They do offer delicious range of sweet dips too. My favorite be in the red velvet dip which goes so well with graham crackers
IMG_7106
All their dips are vegetarian and freshly prepared by them. I love their concept and the best part is that it’s really close to Vox cinemas in Burjuman so instead of ordering your regular nachos and cheese I would highly suggest you to try out the Chips N dips.
  • Free Wifi on purchase of a chips n Dips order
  • They do party catering as well. Contact them on 04 2244842

Reviewing 7th Heaven Beauty Products-Part 1

A few weeks back I gave away some fabulous beauty masks all courtesy of the generous sponsor 7TH Heaven(formerly known as our household favorite Montage Jeunesse). I was sent their lovely and colorful PR kit to try out the masks myself and share the opinion with you all. A bit of spoiler, these masks are definitely going to help you achieve that Pre Eid Glow!

I would have posted these reviews earlier but I like to see the effect of each mask within a week’s time to conclude on my reviews. So it took me a bit of time to try them all, the fantastic masks. I am going to post my reviews in parts so its easier for everyone. First up, I am reviewing the two tube masks i.e Cucumber Peel off mask and Dead Sea Mud Pac.

7th heaven

Dead Sea Mud Pac

Three main ingredients that make up this face mask is lavender, Dead sea Mud and Dead sea salt. Now I am not sure if you folks have heard about this but dead sea mud is a very popular product towards Morocco and also some Moroccan bath houses(hamams) use dead sea salt & mud extensively to clean the skin. While the lavender is used for reducing acne and even helps in eliminating eczema.

I was impressed with the contents but does the mask do the job? Yes it does indeed! Post the very first application, my skin felt clean and my T zone was looking a bit better. I have a combination skin with T zone being oily and the rest of skin being dry. I feared this face mask will dry out the skin but luckily such was not the case. Its thick and greenish color paste, easy to apply on skin. I am super recommending this one to all my combination skin buddies.

Recommended use: Once a week

Tube lasts: 12- 15 applications

Cucumber Peel off Mask

As the name suggests, the peel off mask has the main ingredient as cucumber known for its cooling properties. There is also lime oil and pressed flowers if cucumber doesn’t impress you enough. This mask is certainly as cool as cucumber! Its a peel off one and generally I dont prefer peel off ones. However this mask was very refreshing and good to use on all skin types. Its light and the skin feels slightly tighter after the application. Pulls out all the dead skin cells leaving the skin looking brighter.

Recommended use: Twice a week

Tube lasts 12 applications

Both of these masks are available at all leading supermarket/hypermarkets near to you. These are budget friendly drug store treasures that do the job while costing you almost nothing. All 7th Heaven products are vegetarian and cruelty free! They love animals like myself 🙂

Are you impressed with what you have read so far? Well there is certainly more to come! Stay tuned for the review of remaining masks from 7th in my next post.
