Dubai Mall is my absolute favorite place to be as I do my cardio here.. I mean my shopping . Along with plethora of brands and stores popping in there is a wide variety of dining options available too!
Spotted Scoozi in Dubai Mall that serves the two most popular cuisines, Japanese and Italian. At first I was wondering which cuisine to choose but since there was large variety my guests and I decided to order the best from both.
They have fantastic selection of coolers to begin with. My favorite of all was the strawberry cooler, so refreshing & the fruit flavor bursts out making even the most warmest days go cool. For appetizers my guests & I selected mozzarella crocante, vegetable spring rolls, Tricolore (burrata dish) and avocado maki. Surprisingly everyone voted for avocado maki & crocante to be the favorites from this set of courses. Rest of the dishes werent less delicious but these two were just perfect!
For mains we all went italian as vegetarian selections were not too many in japanese. We ordered a Margarita pizza, gnocchi quattro formaggi, ravioli & Farfelle Al Funghi. Our favorite was definitely the gnocchi quattro formaggi as it was so creamy & so rich! All their dishes are well portioned and their pasta are all fresh! My guests were truly impressed with the main courses & so was I.
For desserts we opted for Chocolate fondant & Flourless chocolate cake. Both of them rich, chocolaty and simply superb! Lacked a bit in presentation but overall tasted really good!
My only concern was the service as it was a bit slow post the appetizers and the staff were hesitant to give their suggestions on the dishes. Also they weren’t attentive enough as many a times I had to repeat my queries.
Pro tip: If you ask for a table towards the fountains you get the perfect view without having to stand in crowds or even in heat for that matter of fact. Paired with delicious food, Scoozi makes the perfect place to dine in.

am a pizza maniac, I can eat it any time of the day! So it’s obvious that I keep discovering new places and telling you folks about the same.
Glad that restaurants are taking the concept of healthy eating seriously and so following that is Zpizza. They use GMO free flour and do offer gluten free options.
I tried their meal for four option which includes two salads, two medium pizzas, coke & six pieces of their garlic breads served with marinara sauce. My choice of pizzas included, spinach & mushroom which has white sauce base & California Veggie, filled with all the possible veggies. Whoever said pizzas are unhealthy are really wrong, just look at those veggies man! For salads I tried Greek salad & California salad, both were delicious & hearty portions. The garlic bread sticks were a bit tough to chew on but i am assuming that’s because i consumed it while it was cold.
Can’t wait for Zpizza business Bay branch to open up! It’s going to be near from my office which only means one thing.. more pizza lunches!
Please note: I was sent the meal as I had won their giveaway. I was not asked to review them but they do offer genuinely good food so do check them out!

Freez is one of the most talked about cafes in Dubai. Why so you ask? Well they have sweet treats for the fussiest of eaters and their innovative crepes and cakes are popular amongst the younger crowd.
To find out what’s the hype all about I visited their outlet located at Al Qouz. It’s a small outlet but since most of their orders are takeaway/delivery this area seems sufficient for them. Colorful interiors that have graffiti of products from the 90’s such as Areej juices, oman chips and more.
Coming to the menu, we tried the Happiness cake,which is essentially a super moist red velvet cake topped with white and milk chocolate. This dish is not for those who are not sweet fanatics. It’s indeed delicious but a large portion for one. Apart from this I also tried the refreshing pistachio shake. Served in a jar of nutella, this shake is all you need to be summer ready! We loved it a lot. The other dish that I tried was the chocolate mousse cake, oozing liquid chocolate topped with more chocolate! I was in chocolate heaven! We also tried the lotus pancakes, kraft pancakes and more.
Overall, if you are in Al Qouz or if you spot their pop up stores, do give their dishes a try. They are sweet but delicious treats all priced reasonably.

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
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

Are you obsessed with middle eastern cuisine? I think I am a bit because I cannot live without hummus and my favorite halloumi. Giving a twist to these simple ingredients a modern concept of Saj Bistro was created.
Located conveniently at Aspin Towers, Saj Bistro offers a wide selection of burgers, wraps, face ups (manakeesh).
For appetizers, I ordered the quinoa salad and my guest opted for eggs sunny side up, fresh juices and halloumi wrap. The pesto halloumi wrap was delicious and interesting.
Must tries from the menu are definitely the akawwi cheese faceup that doesn’t only look delicious but the stringy cheese is a sight for cheese lovers.
For desserts, we opted for lotus waffle with ice cream and baklawa with ice cream.The former was light and not overtly sweet except the sauces while the latter was too sweet for my liking.
Overall, Saj bistro serves delicious fusion of leventine cuisine. Their quick service and delivery system sets them apart from the restaurants catering similar cuisine.

I love the diversity in Wafi restaurants. They have Seville’s for Spanish to Asha’s for Indian. Adding to the list is the newest member, Marco’s Italian Kitchen.
Marco’s is named after the chef Marco Ghezzi who hails from Italy. With no fuss and frills the menu is kept simple and authentic. Ingredients are imported from Italy including vegetables.
For antipasti, we ordered burrata and zucchini chips. The burrata was fresh and the sourness of cherry tomatoes help in cutting through the rich and creamy taste of the cheese. The zucchini chips were simple and flavorful.
For Our mains, I opted for cannelloni stuffed with spinach and ricotta served in alfredo sauce. My guest opted for gnocchi. Both dishes are highly recommended for vegetarians. We also tried the pizza Napoli (vegetarian version) it was the best and most delicious pizza I have had!
Marco’s offers excellent wine selection both white and red. These are perfect to go with italian food. However I chose to try their signature cocktail, Amore Mio. This rum based drink was delicious and pink! My guest opted for the beer as he is not a wine person.
For desserts we tried the tiramisu which surprisingly was a larger portion but so light! Served with mixed berries on side. The other dessert was a chocolate torta ( Torta Barrozzi), basically a dense cake, brownie kinds that was served with berry compote and berries.
The food definitely does brighten up the day but more than that it’s the beautiful decor. Wooden tables, fresh basil and thymes pots on each table, soft lighting and the lovely view of the terrace. You can opt to dine at the terrace but since it was a windy day back then we were seated inside. The semi open kitchen looks beautiful. Suggesting this place for lunch dates as the ambiance is very relaxing and gorgeous.
