24 Karat Restaurant – Dubai

Food Instagram: @forkingfoodiedxb / Personal Instagram: @xotina143 My review of 24 Karat – this restaurant fits into the Dubai stereotype well as most outsiders see this city as luxurious and filled with gold. With beautiful presentations of the food served here, the chefs top it off with unique flavoured gold flakes. 24 Karat is now in the process of revamping their concept…

ZPizza – Dubai

Food Instagram: @forkingfoodiedxb / Personal Instagram: @xotina143 My review of Z Pizza – this is a great restaurant to get some satisfying pizzas. I liked the individual sizes of the pizzas, which is the small, and I found them to be a perfect portion for me. The crust and dough of the pizzas here were tasty and not oily at all. The…

Benjarong – Dubai

Food Instagram: @forkingfoodiedxb / Personal Instagram: @xotina143 My review of Benjarong – I am obsessed with authentic Thai restaurants serving delicious and wonderfully fragrant dishes. Benjarong is now on my favourite Thai restaurants list for Dubai and Canada.

I came here on a Friday night for dinner and got to enjoy some of the live entertainment. Not only was it a fun night, I was absolutely blown away with the amazing food…

Lao Restaurant – Dubai

Food Instagram: @forkingfoodiedxb / Personal Instagram: @xotina143 My review of Lao – Vietnamese cuisine is limited here in Dubai, and I have been craving a good pho soup since I moved away from home where there were so many authentic Vietnamese restaurants. I had the pleasure to try the Vietnamese dishes here, but I found them to be toned down for flavours…

Kaftan Restaurant – Dubai

Food Instagram: @forkingfoodiedxb / Personal Instagram: @xotina143 My review of Kaftan – specializing in Ottoman and Turkish cuisine, this restaurant was able to offer authentic breakfast dishes for me to enjoy. With a unique ambience, you are able to enjoy your meals here in a fully air conditioned clear tent. The soslu kizartma, (deep fried organic vegetables), was good, but I found…
