The Lounge Dubai

Get to know me better through my Instagram: @xotina143 My review for The Lounge Dubai – If you’re a fan of Chef Glady, then you will have to stop by here to indulge his stunning signature dishes. The tuna tartare was outstanding, and the presentation was extraordinary. I loved the passionfruit flavours, and that extra acidity brought out the beautiful…

Azalya – Dubai

Get to know me better through my Instagram: @xotina143 My review for Azalya – it is rare for me to have Indian dishes for brunch, but this place had a variety of other dishes in their buffet that were not as heavy for me to enjoy during brunch. There was a station of Indian Street food, a large salad station,…

Estrellas Rooftop Lounge

Get to know me better through my Instagram: @xotina143 My review for Estrellas Rooftop Lounge – came here to experience the brunch and it was a small selection but would be great for those who just wants a quick bite before jumping into the pool or to sunbathe. The buffet had a barbecue station with some seafood and pasta, a…

Applebee’s – Dubai

Get to know me better through my Instagram: @xotina143 My review for Applebee’s – this restaurant disappointed me in many ways, but the most disappointing thing was the fact that there were cockroaches crawling around under our table and the next table over. This was horrible to see and I was shaking throughout the whole dinner because I absolutely hate…

Chop Suey – Dubai

Get to know me better through my Instagram: @xotina143 My review for Chop Suey – It is hard for me to enjoy western Chinese food because I am overly obsessed with authentic Chinese cuisine. The dishes served here were good if I’m not comparing to the real dishes in Asia. The crystal prawn dumplings were the only dish that I…

Kanpai – Dubai

Waka – Dubai

Get to know me better through my Instagram: @xotina143 My review for Waka – serving Latin American cuisine, this restaurant has opened my eyes up to brand new flavours that I never once had before.

Chawlas2 – Dubai

Get to know me better through my Instagram: @xotina143 My review for Chawlas2 – so much heart and soul was shown in the dishes served at this restaurant. I have not consumed much Punjabi dishes in my lifetime but everytime I get the opportunity to, it’s very different – in a good way. The tandoori gobi was an interesting starter…

Long Teng Seafood – Dubai

Get to know me better through my Instagram: @xotina143 My review for Long Teng – my husband was born and raised in Hong Kong, so he really knows what authentic Chinese food is. The food served here was definitely authentic traditional Chinese food and from the presentation of the dishes, I could really tell that the chefs really care about…

Seasonal Tastes – Dubai

Get to know me better through my Instagram: @xotina143 My review for Seasonal Tastes – I cannot believe how long it took me to photograph the buffet selection at this restaurant for the City Brunch because it was literally the biggest brunch I have ever been to. There were so many different cuisines served in the buffet and there was…
