Dubai 2018

As some of you may know, me and my husband went to the Maldives and Dubai for our honeymoon earlier on in the year but lucky us, we got food poisining. Yep, you can imagine after making a huge list of all of the places we could go and eat at in Dubai, boiled potatoes and rice as requested by the doctors wasn't quite what we thought we'd be eating! So, when my sister inlaw told me she wanted to go abroad for her 25th birthday I thought what better excuse to go Dubai again. This time when we visited, we rented an apartment on the marina called ‘Golden Stay Vacation Homes’ which was a five minute walk from JBR. The apartment was clean, hotel staff were attentive and I’d recommend it if you are looking for somewhere close by to the walk. Booking it early gets you a great deal too – we got flights and apartment for under £500 pp! I'll add a bunch of pictures so you can see what we got up to during our time there

Typical Dutch Pancakes - Dutch Pancakes being made from a simple batter of eggs, milk, flour and a touch of salt can be served both sweet and savoury - I obviously had to go for sweet option and got the pancake topped with fresh banana, strawberry sauce and whipped cream. 
SALT - Located on Kite Beach, SALT  is a food truck serving an urban food experience with the aim of bringing people together to enjoy a simple meal in the environment they love most and with stunning views of the beach and the mosque I couldn't agree more. We ordered the Chicken Cheetos Sliders which was deep fried chicken, topped with melted cheese and cheetos sandwiched between two soft buns and the Double Wagyu Burger which was 2oz Wagyu beef topped with melted cheese, lettuce and pickle. Both burgers tasted ever so fresh, juicy and flavourful. 

IHOP - Two fluffy Raspberry and White Chocolate Pancakes topped with a dollop of Cream Cheese frosting.  Although it doesn't look like much, they were quite filling and definitely for those with a sweet tooth. 
Chicken Benedict - Two poached eggs on grilled chicken. Gruyère cheese and toasted english muffin. Topped with their famous hollandaise sauce and served with lyonnaise style potaotes. 

Bvlgari Cafe at City Walk - Passionfruit & Pistachio mini gelatos + Italian Ice Coolers, A blend of Amarena Cherry, Apple, Vanilla and Lemon. Encased in a crisp white chocolate pistachio shell, the Passionfruit gelato was a light and refreshing option whilst the Pistachio gelato was smooth and creamy with hints of Almond.

Bombay Bungalow - The standout dish for me was the Burratta Butter Chicken. A different take on butter chicken,  this fenugreek tomato dish ties together both Indian and Italian influences. 
Huqqa - Located on the third floor of Dubai Mall, this shisha café/restaurant had stunning views of the dancing fountains and served the best mocktails of the trip - oh and they also serve selfie lattes, choose a picture of yourself and tada you'll be served a latte with a picture of you on top! This place was such a good find we headed back again for a second time before heading back home to England. 

Nikki Beach - One of the days, we decided to  make a trip to Nikki Beach for the day (Tuesday is Ladies Day and you get your ticket for half price) Here, we spent the majority of the day relaxing, going to the beach and using the pool. The Ladies Day offer also includes six drinks for free.

As you can see, Dubai is definitely the place to go if you're a foodie and a place I'd love to visit again!
