Let’s admit it! Quite recently, Instagram has become the thing and we all visit restaurants just for the sake of taking pictures. Restaurants also have started expressing themselves through their ambience, food, presentation of food and instagram spots. I made a list of places I wanted to go which had both good food and Flamboyant decor. Though I could not go to all the places, here are a few places I have been to.
This was the first place on my list Papparoti. We ordered Peach flavoured IceTea and Signature buns with dark chocolate and nuts topped on it. Trust me when I say the buns melt in your mouth.
Ararat is a mix of Armenian, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisines. We went to this place only to taste the fancy pineapple rice and Yes We did !!
Spoon and Glaze – Dubai Mall
I ordered Chocolate Mud Cake which was AED 42. It was served in a multi layered chocolate sponge cake with dark chocolate fudge in between, which came in a clay plant pot. The chocolate cake was delicious. They provide various options of Mud cakes and Sand cakes, and all of them come in actual small-sized clay plant pots, along with a wooden spoon ! I plan on trying the sand cakes if I happen to go again.
Bread Street Kitchen & Bar, Dubai brings a slice of London to the iconic Atlantis Hotel located on the world famous Palm Jumeirah.
Arabian Tea House is covered with a huuuuuge old fortress wall. This is a rented house, built in the early 1920s by a pearl trader.
We had been roaming in scorching heat all day before we reached the hotel and had real doubts if we will be comfortable eating in a outdoor restaurant with no air-conditioning. So, we only thought of having a cup of chai but ended up eating the whole meal. The restaurant is air-conditioned and very comfortable. It has shady trees inside making the ambience all the more better.
Local house coffee shop and restaurant
Local tea house is a traditional restaurant located at the historical Bastakiya. It has been serving authentic Arabic cuisine for more than a decade. Sometime in 2010, Local House fascinated a few and maybe shocked a few when they introduced the first ever Camel Burger in the UAE.
