Chacha making fresh Jalebi - Imdad Sweets - Naif - Deira Dubai
© 2014 . All rights reserved.

The crunchiest Jalebi you can find in Dubai.

Your body is not happy, that’s why you keep falling ill. You’re not feeding it enough…Soul Food. Hm. Now there was a theory. It was not the lack of water, nor my negligence of multi-vitamins, nor my lack of sleep. … Continue reading

Old Dubai Eats

Don’t ask me what you can eat in Old Dubai, ask me what you CAN’T.

The past few weeks have been a train ride of food experiences in the city. Everything from Emirati and Egyptian to Korean and Pakistani have made it to my plate, so here’s a summary line-up of a few of the … Continue reading

Iskendar Kabab - Yildiz Saray - Turkish Restaurant Dubai
© 2013 . All rights reserved.

An Iskendar Kabab in Deira that Needs to be Revered, Glorified, Idolized. (…and eaten when the others aren’t looking.)

 A few of you might have suffered through my obsessive Iskendar kabab ramblings in the past—and this is definitely going to be another one of them. Because Iskendar kabab is that attention-grabber of Turkish kabab dishes that I will never … Continue reading

A bunch of good eats [that I swept under the carpet] finally see the light of day.

My pending posts have become like a disorganized Old McDonald’s farm of nibbles, here a nibble, there a nibble, everywhere a nibble nibble [which is tantamount to a massive nibble]… And no post to show for it. So rather than … Continue reading

A secret about my blog. And a slice of kanafa.

People, here’s a dirty little secret about this blog. I tell you about tiny little restaurants hidden away in some Godforsaken corner of Dubai. Places that don’t have great access to parking. Places that don’t have glittering silverware or white … Continue reading

If a Chocolate Photo Assignment is reason enough to not blog for a bit, well then, I have a Chocolate Photo Assignment.

I-DO-I-DO-I-DO!! And it’s the highlight of my month! I had to read the email request from Choco’a, one of my favourite Chocolate boutiques in the city, twice, thrice, before it sank in…would I be up for shooting a few of … Continue reading

SO much sugar at Bakefest that I had sugar burns creep up my back.

You know that feeling when you’ve had way, way, WAY too much sugar or chocolate or caffeine, and this crazy burning sensation starts inching up your back and around your neck?  Or is that just me?  It may just be … Continue reading

I LIKE MY BUNS FLOOFAY.

[Double-meaning perverted male culprits out there who’re snickering at my post title, stop that thought process right THERE. This is just a foodblog remember?] Anyhoo, let me present to you my super scientific taxonomy for bread… The Crispy and Crunchy. … 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? I’ve heard it every work day of February, maybe even January, to the point where it makes me want to wave … Continue reading
