Fen Restaurant – A hidden Sharjah gem

It was my first time visiting Sharjah. I mean I’d driven through it but after living in Dubai for 3 and a half years I never really found a reason to visit, after all there’s a multitude of restaurants opening everyday and loads of them within my reach.

However there was something that attracted me to Fen. Maybe it was the fact that it wasn’t within my reach. Could it of been the stunning social media account or was it the interesting sounding menu? Whatever it was it hooked me bait, line & sinker.

On Friday’s then open their doors at 3pm for lunch. There’s a paid parking lot right next to the Sharjah Art Foundation. Inside the courtyard are white geometric chairs and once entering the rather petite sized restaurant I adored the clean, minimalist feel with wooden windows opening directly onto the beforementioned courtyard.

The menu changes frequently according to the availability of the in season produce.

Chef Margo hails from the Philippines 🇵🇭 but works his magic on every dish that comes to the table. The inspiration for the menu coming from the owner’s desire to provide high quality fresh ingredients by sourcing local produce where possible.

The variety of starters we tried included a tomato & basil oil gazpacho, prawn Vietnamese rolls, served with a satay and a vinegar based dipping sauce, as well as a tuna sashimi with bee pollen, which they ensure to check for allergies at the time of ordering. I love Vietnamese spring rolls as you can really taste the freshness of the ingredients rolled inside.


Their selection of fresh juices and mocktail concoctions kept us happily hydrated.

If the starters weren’t impressive enough out came the mains. A grilled seabass fillet with sautĂ©ed mushrooms on a bed of capsicums. If I didn’t have to share this dish with friends I wouldn’t of. Trust me it was THAT good. Crispy on the outside, silky flesh on the inside. Just divine!

A juicy plate of medium cooked rump slices arrive soon after surrounded by sweet potato mash and piled high with greens. The beef is super tender and is well paired with the velvet mash.

Rounding off the mains was a scallop risotto topped with microgreens and finely grated Parmesan cheese. The Japanese scallops were cooked just right, which put a smile on our faces.

Who can possibly say no to desserts when they look this good!

The sorbet plate was too pretty. It reminded me of the corals in the Great Barrier Reef. Although I’m unsure of the white sorbet which tasted to us like truffle! Loved the biscuit crumb base though.

The sugar-free guiltfree beetroot chocolate cake texture was dense and drizzled with chocolate avocado frosting. The highlight of this cake was the home-made honeycombe which was out-of-this-world amazing! Reminding me of an Australian chocolate bar called Violet Crumble.

The most mesmerizing and my favorite tasting dessert was the ube leche flan, another sugar free cake, this time made of purple yam with a creme brûlée and toffee art sitting pretty on top.

The sugar free Matcha pancotta is served as a half solid sphere with koshi anko paste smeared in a shallow bowl and sprinkled with pumpkin seeds. You really have to love Matcha to order this dessert as it’s quite bitter and not really for the sweet tooths.

I have to thank the brilliant team at Fen Restaurant for making my first Sharjah dining experience a fabulous one. I left on such a high and wouldn’t hesitate it recommending this restaurant nor can I wait to go back, especially for the seabass.

Uno, dos, tres, Quattro 

Quattro Ristorante, is a conjoined twin with it’s sister restaurant Spice Klub being right next door and therefore sharing a kitchen.

Located in Mankhool these are the new kids on the block with fun, vibrant and modern interiors with super comfortable seating.

They open for lunch then close again before dinner service and offer some great business lunch deals which are extremely affordable.

We visited for a Friday lunch time and it was quieter than it’s sister restaurant next door. There is a water feature which runs through the middle of the tables and a strange mix of music playing faintly in the background.

The drink menu is split into 6 categories. We tried a berry mojito, a lemon iced tea and an apple basil cooler, all complete with a smoking feature thanks to dry ice. 🌬

​For those who didn’t know Quattro is a fusion of Italian & Mexican cuisines but with a twist. It’s completely vegetarian!

The appetizers we tried included taquito cones, risotto balls complete with a syringe of chili oil, corn fritters topped with loads of guacamole and sour cream foam…

and also Mexican corn on the cob. Unfortunately the corn was a bit soft which could be due to overlooking, but the flavors were spicy without being too intense. It comes served with corn ice cream in a fried corn shell.

I loved the taquito cones! It’s a small cornchip shaped into a cone filled with beans, cheese, jalapeños and topped with small spheres of avocado ice cream. They come served in a shot glass containing tomato salsa. The combination of flavors and textures and hot and cold just works! I could of eaten all 4.

For mains, we tried a chefs special. A jalapeño rice dish with a peppery gravy styled sauce, with crisp grilled paneer and truffle flavored fries. The whole combination was weird and I wasn’t sure exactly where in fit in to the menu.

Although the ravioli rose stuffed with spinach and cheese was nothing to look at, the taste made up for it. The pink sauce was warm and creamy.

The pizzas here are served on super thin crusts and we enjoyed the upside margherita where the cheese is on the bottom and the pasta sauce is on the top.

We shared two desserts, a deconstructed tiramisu which my friend didn’t know about until she started eating and said “this tastes like tiramisu” in which we replied “it is” followed by a few chuckles. Not only was the presentation on point but the separated flavors once brought together really stood out on your palette. This was the highlight of the desserts for sure and I’d highly recommend ordering it.

On the other hand if you’re a massive chocolate fan over coffee then the hazelnut mousse and Belgian chocolate ice cream desert is for you. Although the mousse was denser than I expected. It’s garnished with caramel popcorn.

Quattro Ristorante is great for those who are looking for a fusion beteeen two cuisines. The staff are attentive and knowledgeable and the menu is extensive for being vegetarian only. Now my only question is how it compares to it’s sister restaurant next door?

5 reasons why your next breakfast should be at The Claw

1. They serve cereal! All those American favorites comes together in one place with a choice or full fat, semi skim, soy, almond or rice milk. Think Reeses Puff’s, Trix and Lucky Charms. (Although the latter was not available on my visit)

2. The menu is so BIG that it caters for everyone. Vegetarian? No problems. Gluten free? There’s something for you.

3. Bottomless (black) coffee – These two words are music to coffee drinkers ears and so typically American too!

4. They serve chicken for breakfast! I had the Redneck which is two poached eggs on top of two buttermilk chicken pieces with a super generous portion of breakfast potatoes. Super delicious with a zingy hollandiase sauce. You can also order chicken & waffles.


5. You can have fun for free! They have arcade machines on free play and a jukebox as well as multiple TV screens showing American sports.​


The service at Claw is always friendly and the atmosphere is very relaxed and casual.

Unfortunately breakfast won’t be served again until after Ramadan so you’ll have a few more weeks to wait.

Also, breakfast is only served on the weekends; Fridays from 8am til 12pm & Saturdays from 8am til 2pm.

A piece of Africa in Dubai @ Tribes

If you managed to find the location of By Parkers then you would of seen Tribes on the opposite side of the mall.


If the name wasn’t suggestive enough Tribes in an African inspired restaurant and more catered to the carnivores than to the vegetarians. We were welcomed by one of the staff saying “Welcome to Africa”.

We choose our seat ( the table with the best light ) and are introduced to the manager who says they are trialling a new menu which is A la carte style rather than the ‘All You Can Eat’ buffet they once served.

Unfortunately for us and our rather large appetite the Prime Rib was unavailable and I settle for the South African 100 day grain fed beef fillet instead, cooked medium and my guest the hanging skewer.

In my opion Africa produce some of the best beef in the world, reminiscing on my steak in South Africa which I could cut with a butter knife. Although not to throw shade at my home country or neighbors, Australia and New Zealand cuts are also featured on the menu.

First to arrive on our table was a rather large loaf of warm bread loaded with sundried tomatoes. Pro tip: The mains are quite big, so keep the bread intake to a minimum.


Shortly followed by our drinks. I ordered the African sunset mocktail however they must of been out of fresh passionfruit as disappointingly there was none in my drink. 


I loved the decor especially the wicker basket lamp shades and colorful walls. The waitresses wore these cute printed dresses, whilst the guys outfits were very bright and colorful.IMG_7950

We shared the beetroot and avocado salad as a starter. It was light and fresh and I especially loved the  garnish of roasted garlic slices.


For me the crunchy prawn and avocado dish had the potential to be a nice dish but the prawns weren’t as fresh as one would of liked.


When our mains arrived my steak was cooked excatly to my specification and beautifully charred. Unfortunately the corn wasn’t straight off a cob and tasted a little more tinned than fresh and the sweet potato was the yellow variety so not as sweet as the orange type. 


Dessert was not required but insisted upon us, so we agreed to share the melting caramel malva cake which is a hefty slice of date cake with a burnt caramel cream on top. Indulgent to say the least!


If you’re celebrating a birthday don’t forget to mention it to the staff as you will be entertained with the African drums, singing and dancing which will have you smiling from ear to ear.

La Ville – Exactly like nothing else

The first hotel to hit City Walk, Al Safa is La Ville, a boutique hotel under the Marriott groups Autograph collection boasting a refreshing modern but minimalistic edge and consisting of around eighty guest rooms and five F&B outlets, three of which I got to experience recently.

We experienced a Culinary Immersion evening organised by Monica at DoinDubai. Starting with Look Up Bar. Make sure you do, as I nearly didn’t notice the sky above me as I was too fixated with the view of the Burj Khalifa over the infinity pool.


This rooftop bar situated on Level 5, serves up your regular cocktail options as well as some signatures using the hotels own mix of beauty elixirs. Cocktail with beauty benefits? Sign. Me. Up! As well as a variety of other drinks they also have a light bites menu. Some of the options include some rather large jalepenos stuffed with feta cheese, homemade marinated mixed olives and artisan vegetable chips. Think purple potato, beetroot and yuca all served with a tasty onion dip.


Chival Global Social is the hotels all day dining restaurant focusing on healthy food. The restaurant opens out onto a terrace and even has a private dining area good for 8-10 guests. This room is gorgeously decorated with leafy green plants and quotes on the walls. The overhead lamps add ample light and I almost forgot what it’s like to dine in a restaurant that isn’t dimly lit.


We enjoyed a range of appetizers including a beet & lentil salad, a spiced cauliflower and freekeh mix as well as my favorite dish a Tuna Tataki and Cucumber Salad with glass noodles, edamame and a miso vinaigrette, followed by mains consisting of Island Prawns, a rather greasy Prime Burger served in a pretzel bun and the hard to pronounce agnolotti pasta, pockets of pasta squares cooked al dente and stuffed with ricotta and spinach, the latter of which we ordered a second plate.

The third F&B outlet on the culinary immersion tour was Graze gastro grill. It’s a hip venue playing some upbeat tunes with an impressive ceiling. Another reason for you to Look Up. This was the location for our final stop on the culinary immersion and we enjoyed dinner over this gorgeously lit table.


First up we had a pre dessert made up of a blueberry and balsamic sorbet topped with a virgin mojito cream and a sprig of mint. A tangy palette cleanser that wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Followed by a smoked vanilla ice cream, a Japanese cotton cheesecake, a dark chocolate missipi pie and a white chocolate zabaglione. My favorite out of all the desserts by far was the Japanese cotton cheesecake. It was fluffy and light served with a sour wild berry coulis.


The hotel is still in soft opening but you can expect a grand opening next month. I’m looking forward to my next visit and trying out the Grape Skin Wine Bar which will be starting Ladies nights soon.

As always it was a pleasure dining with my fellow foodies Monica, Nairuz, Rachel, Meghana, Javeria, Mark and Rohit.


Next time you’re in the area, don’t forget to pay La Ville a visit. There’s plenty of options which are sure to tickle your tastebuds.

24 Karat magic in the airrrrrrr….

I don’t know about you but I can’t help but sing Bruno Mars 24K every time I hear the restaurant name 24 Karat. This newly opened Italian fine dining restaurant headed up but none other than Chef Glady (which many of you may remember from Per Te) calls the Marriott Al Jaddaf it’s home. Replacing a Japanese restaurant which never eventuated, the kitchen was changed, as was the decor to give this spacious restaurant, the midas touch.


The gold theme touches everything from the cutlery to your plate or even into your glass. Their menu’s are on iPads and offers a video preview of almost every dish hence it does take a little while to go through the entire menu. Luckily the attentive staff are on hand to give you some suggestions. I’m sat on a wide, plush, subtly golden chair which is so comfortable it doesn’t feel like I should be eating on it, rather be watching TV in someone’s living room.


For starters we ordered the 24 Karat burrata; served with 3 way cherry tomatoes, poached, cherry and sun dried, drizzled with basil dressing and creamy balsamic truffle flavored gold flakes! Two of my favorite foods together, what’s not to love?


As well as the seared scallops with creamy saffron, exquisitely made squid ink crackers, shimeji mushrooms and a cauliflower puree. Perfectly cooked and presented.


Not to mention the beef carpaccio; thinly sliced rare beef garnished with pears, pistachio, circles of parmesan cheese, sprinkles of black Hawaiin salt and slices of fresh truffle. Each ingredient playing a key part to balance out this dish.


Whilst we wait a slate board of freshly baked chilli and garlic crisp bread arrive made in house. It’s decorated with stracciatella cheese and olive oil with fresh sprigs of herbs.


Chef Glady also bought us a sample of the Japanese wagyu. A grade 9 marbled steak cut into slices and served upon a bed of truffle mash. The steak melts at 29 degrees and your mouth is generally around 34 degrees. So this piece of meat literally does melt in your mouth. If you wanted to order this in the restaurant be prepared to cough up 790 dirhams for a 350gram serving. However the quality of the meat is that good, it’s worth every dirham.


For mains we tried the paccheri Lobster and Crab pasta and the slow cooked and braised veal ossobucco milanese, the latter atop of a brightly colored saffron risotto.


The pasta was cooked very al dente. The large tubed pasta shells engulf the Canadan losbter pieces in the crab sauce that each bite is seafood heaven.


Last but never least order the golden bomb and tiramisu for dessert. The golden bomb is the highlight for sure. A chocolate sphere surrounded by a an edible forest; a nest of woven sugar which is drowned in hot white chocolate sauce until it melts leaving a mix of chocolate and berries on a bed of crumbled chocolate brownie. Just wow!


Before leaving we take a tour of the restaurant which has 3 private dining areas, a huge al fresco dining terrace with views of the Burj Khalifa in the distance. They plan to install an outdoor pizza oven too. My mouth is already watering.

At the moment the restaurant does not have their alcohol license but that could change in the future. They do however have a quite a range of soft beverages including Dubai cola, (a cola drink mixed with dates and honey which is very sweet) and lots of fancy non alcoholic wines with plenty of sparkles inside.

The Tiramisu

24 Karat fits perfectly into the Dubai brand with gold flakes and truffle ringing through their menu. However it’s the quality of their ingredients and the way they wow their customers with attention to detail which is why this Italian restaurant is set for success.

It’s not just in the presentation but with the execution of each dish. The passion for food really shines through. You’ll be hard pressed trying to find a dish that isn’t delicious or “grammable“.

A nostalgic trip with Chef Pradeep @ Jodhpur

A taxi trip drops us at Al Murooj Rotana, perhaps in the wrong spot, as we find ourselves walking through a car park, down some stairs, then through an outdoor garden setting before finally reaching Jodhpur. Flustered, we enter the premises and have time to cool down and start to relax as we walk down the spiral staircase to our table.
The interiors are lavish although possibly a little out dated, however the service we received from start to finish made us feel like royalty.
We were lucky enough to try 14 dishes from the menu and you can tell every dish was made with passion. The chaat macaron was such an incredible amuse-bouche touching on each of the five taste sensations and every dish following came with a story.
This fruit cocktail we were served had hints of aniseed which I’m not a huge fan of but it sure does look pretty.
I couldn’t choose my favorite from the 3 starters as they are all different and unique in their own way. Though being a carnivore and a sucker for tamarind sauce the short beef rib does lead the way.
The unique laban & ricotta kabab
There’s a decent break between each dish until you reach the mains which is when the portion sizes defeat us. Between two, we are already struggling. We jumped up to watch how the chef’s prepare the chicken & chestnut kulcha (pictured above).
This is when our dining experience was briefly interrupted by famous Dubai Vlogger Mo who looks like he might of been lost and rolled through the restaurant with his entourage.
This mango, cranberry and kaffir lime sorbet palette cleanser was the perfect size and served in miniature pressure cookers, cute!
The mains arrive and we are flabbergasted by how much food there is. The faux dal makhni substituted with moong dal was too hard to resist dipping the chur-chur kulcha in. Loved the mini garlic paos that come skewered on top of the batata vada too.
Not one but 3 desserts came out sometime after we’d managed to make a dent into our main courses. The kesar malai kulfi, comes served as one giant popsicle and garnished with crushed nuts and freeze dried raspberries.
The rasmalai was one of the best I’ve tasted in Dubai and for sure is my favorite Indian dessert. Irresistibly smooth, but also crunchy.
The jalebi’s come hung on a tree and are too many for us to finish despite their light airy texture so the rest are packed away for us to take home.img_0246
Chef Pradeep Khullar has created something unique, with the modern take on his childhood classics, that you too are taken on his nostalgic culinary journey.
Whatever you decide choose at Jodhpur, you won’t be disappointed.

O’Learys – Not your average sports bar

O’Learys hails from Boston, MA, U.S.A and is a sports restaurant loaded with sports memorabilia all over the walls as well as loads of screens to catch the latest games. The venue itself gives off that Boston vibe, the type you see on a lot of American sitcoms. From the green seats and the polished brass finishings along with the green and white checkered table clothes, it could of easily been a film set for an episode of Cheers.img_4035img_4034Speaking of games, this place is not just for the adults. It caters for all ages with the addition of a foosball table, air hockey table, retro arcade games, pinball and an addictive basketball hoop where you can challenge your friend at who’s the better hoop sinker.img_4066You can purchase tokens from the bar and play while you wait for your food arrive. Sticking to it’s theme it serves typically American bar grub, including chicken wings and burgers through to pastas and salads. They have an impressive drink menu which unfortunately for some is only non-alcoholic. Something they aren’t looking to change in the future.

Our waitress for the day was cheerful and pro active anticipating our needs. Due to the soft launch they didn’t have one of the ingredients to make the drink we were after so we settle with a vanilla iced latte. Served tall with plenty of ice cream on top it was that perfect combination of coffee and milk. Not too sweet at all.img_4045My friend and I shared their chicken quesadilla as well as the Buffalo Chicken Wings for starters along with a side of Potato Gratin. The filling of the quesadillas weren’t bad but they use bottled guacamole on the side. Fresh guacamole would of been much better. The chicken wings weren’t hot at all for buffalo wings, with more of a sweeter taste similar to that of sweet chilli. They make their own buffalo sauce in house. Next time I’d opt for the parmesan garlic flavour.

Starters done and off we were again this time shooting hoops. We were having so much fun we didn’t realise that our mains had started to arrive. Feeling parched we quickly order some iced berry drinks to cool us down.img_4061This time we shared the Boston Burger and the rib eye steak. The steak is chargrilled and served with a cob of corn and half a tomato which had also been grilled and garnished with some lemon. The Boston burger comes served in a basket with fries and even though it looked quite small had quite a thick bun and a patty with melted cheese, two types of sauce, as well as tomatoes and onion. The bread was a little dry but the patty was juicy. The two sauce combination didn’t seem to match and we would of preferred your regular tomato and mustard combo. The fries were cooked to perfection and salted just right. The steak comes served with your choice of sauce and the mushroom sauce was thick and creamy. A nice addition.img_4056img_4052I spent too long photographing the Mexican donut that when I eventually open it the ice cream inside runs out like a milky river. The combination of the thick crusted donut with the cold runny insides is delicious and I wish I tucked into it earlier.img_4069My friend goes for the banana split which is heaped with two different flavours of ice cream and lashings of cream and chocolate sauce. It’s enjoyable and demolished within a few minutes.img_4073Too full to even move at this stage we sit back and let the food digest a little before gathering for a group photo. So much fun was had that we leave on a high of sugar and adrenalin. A great place for all ages.

Totora – Peruvian cuisine in DIFC

There’s an abundance of Peruvian restaurants popping up in Dubai lately. A welcome invite saw myself and a guest have the privilege of dining at the newly opened Totora Cebicheria Peruana which calls Gate 7 in DIFC home.


I’m wowed as soon as I walk in, the floating bridge they’ve created for their entrance makes me feel like I’m deep in the Amazon. Lions and monkeys aside, the well mannered staff greet us on the other side and one kindly escorts us to our table upstairs in the main dining area. The pops of aqua green and cleverly hidden lights add a chic feeling while the music is a mix of Spanish infused house which is heard from the live DJ in the bar/lounge below.


Ronaldo is our server for the evening and passes by with a set menu for the evening. It includes three different types of cebiches. 2 years ago I would of never thought I’d be eating raw fish and here I am, fighting for the last bits of the Tuna cebiche, soaked in a salty but Asian inspired sesame dressing. Although we both agreed the mushroom cebiche is also outstanding and we’d definitely order this dish again.


We are offered a pisco sour, a traditional cocktail of Peru made with you guessed it, Pisco which is a brandy base originating from South America; mixed with egg whites, bitters and citrus juice.




Post starters Ronaldo serves us with another cocktail, this time it’s a Chilcano, which again uses pisco as it’s base but this time has a refreshing sparkling of ginger ale with fresh lime juice and a dash of bitters.


The next round of small bites include a maki roll topped with quinoa and a Peruvian sauce, some beef empanadas de carne as well as some anticuchos which are grilled chicken skewers. For me the sushi and chicken skewers were a little bland and something I would not order next time. I was happy to know that we knew exactly how to eat the empanadas with Ronaldo chirping in as we did. “Ahh you know how to eat them”. Apparently cutting them in half first then squeezing the lime in the center before taking a bite is the correct way. A good guess by us!




Next we rolled onto the mains which included a braised lamb leg perched on top of a bed of Peruvian squash, a quinoa salad with truffle oil, white wine, mushrooms and parmesan and last but not least duck on a bed of risotto style beer flavored rice. Not being a fan of truffle oil, the quinotta was the least favorite for me. Although it’s the most bland of the 3 the lamb was my favorite as it’s a comforting dish of slow cooked fall apart lamb in a warm gravy and whilst the duck meat was also very good I wasn’t a fan of the rice base so overall for me it the duck dish didn’t hit the spot.




The dessert comes later with two on offer – their Clasico Peruano a classic rice pudding with crumbled pieces of chewy fig and a traditional purple corn sorbet. As much as I appreciate the combination of flavors and textures the Tres Leches is right up my alley. A little annoyed I didn’t have time to take a “before” picture as Ronaldo starts pouring the condensed milk straight over the thick but fluffy wedge of cake which then makes the whipped cream peaks slide off the cake making for an “after” photo like the one below.



If I didn’t have a pending vacation I would of gobbled all of the Tres Leches down to myself as my guest preferred the rice pudding. Although I must admit I had troubles putting the spoon down.


As you can see the kitchen has a special eye for attention to detail and if you’re after a lot of fresh ingredients with ample flavor then Totora is for you.

Recipe – Nutty choc butter cups

Let’s just be honest. I’ve never been a fan of peanut butter in saying that though I don’t mind the odd peanut here or there. However walnuts and almonds are my favorite nut these days. So having a Choithrams down the road from me which sells freshly made almond butter from raw almonds has definitely changed the way I look at nut butters. Although I’m still not into slathering nut butters on to toast as I find the sensation of having a thick paste stuck to the roof of your mouth unpleasant, I don’t mind dipping sliced red gala apple pieces into a container of almond butter. Delish!

Below is a recipe I used to make back in Sydney and is borrowed from The Balanced Blonde.

I recommend finding and buying yourself some mini silicone cups. These will make your life a hell of a lot easier.

Mini silicone cups

Prep time: 10 minutes
Wait time: 30 mins

Firstly, for the nutty layer, mix in a bowl 1/2 a cup of natural peanut butter and 1/2 cup of raw almond butter, along with 2 tablespoons of organic coconut oil and a tablespoon of agave or maple syrup. I’ve decided to use this which is the best of both worlds.

Mix well then spoon the mixture into the mini silicone cups until 3/4 of the way full. Transfer them into the freezer to set. (Approx 15 mins).IMG_9595While the base is setting, in a new bowl, mix up 1/2 a cup of raw cacao powder, one tablespoon of the agave/maple syrup with a 1/3 of a cup of coconut oil until completely mixed in and entirely smooth.

Remove the cups from the freezer and top with the chocolate mixture and return to the freezer for setting. (Approx 15 minutes).

And voila! There you have it. Bite size raw treats that everyone will love and a healthy alternative to Reeses.NBCThe best part is you can leave them in the freezer for as long as you want and just grab one anytime you feel like a chocolaty nutty treat!
