Com’ere. I have to tell you about these magic meatballs.

I didn’t discover them. Which is pretty damning since Bento-Ya has probably been serving them on Sheikh Zayed road for the past fifteen years. All credit goes to the blogger behind Dubai Bites, who within two minutes of my post … Continue reading

A sweet cheesy combo that would make for the Happiest of meals.

Anyone heard the two-whole-beef-patties-special-sauce-lettuce-cheese-pickles-onions-on-a-sesame-seed-bun jingle that McDonalds Arabia has been obnoxiously chanting over the radio for the past month?

Al Ammor. Serving up Egyptian comfort foods that call out to the little girl in me.
