Help keep the new Taiwanese ‘Honey Ice Cream Dessert Shop’ alive.

28/10/2014: The sinister niggling feeling in my heart played out folks, this place has shut down. A real tragedy that we won’t be able to support the Taiwanese taro-ball maker anymore.  Two months ago, a bubble gum-pink sign and fairy lights popped … Continue reading

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

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

Whoaaa! Horaaah! Fish and chips! Hooot! In London! Weeeeee! Land of The Fish and Chips! Yaaay! …Yay. Yeah. Ok I’m done with my hallucinations. I’m still right here, sweating it out in Dubai. That street photo up there is just … 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
