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 sautéed 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.

Carnival by Tresind – The best value business lunch in Dubai! 

Looking for a superb Business Lunch deal in DIFC? Then head over to Carnival by Tresind.
For just 99AED ++ you get a 12 course set menu which is such great value. FYI, this price does not include your drinks.

On my most recent trip to CBT, I took my brother who was in town visiting. We were the first people to arrive for the lunch sitting but a few tables filled up after we had started eating. 

I adore the copper interior details along with bursts of bright colors and a dizzying black and white flooring. This time there were dream catchers hanging in the trees near our table. As we were being seated i noticed a small Cath Kidston style floral back pack on our table which contained our cutlery, serviette and water glass. 

The bread they serve is a small bun with grated cheese and a slither of truffle, freshly baked as you could see the cheese still melting.

The small plates almost arrived altogether which was not a bad thing as we were quite hungry. 



Out of the 6 they served 3 were vegetarian, a yuzu masala taco, peanut butter & jelly paneer, quirky & clever but not my cup of tea and game of corns, a corn curd cutlet with a goji berry chutney topped with a dot of kewpie mayo, surrounded by actual popcorn. The 3 non veg dishes included meat-a-licious grilled Australian lamp chops with a masala sauce, just slider – two chicken seekh kebeb sliders with jalapenos and caramelized onions served on an uber cute lego set made to look like McDonalds! I love the creativity and tongue-in-cheek approach as well as pulliinji; South Indian style ginger prawns, made crunchy due to caramelized palm sugar and topped with a crisp curry leaf.



Between small and large plates came a frozen passionfruit and basil seed sorbet so good, that I could of eaten a large portion for dessert and been content with my lunch for the day.

However the mains aka large plates were yet to arrive. 😞 Luckily there were only 4 of them. But not only do they serve up 4 mains, they also come with carbs. Rice, bread, you name it, there was lots of it.


Out of the chickpea curry, a simmering steamed in a bag seabass, a sweet on the palate butter chicken and a dum aloo, the fish and the potatoes dishes stood out for us. The fish was impressive as it wasn’t overcooked at all therefore the texture was perfect and the dum aloo as the flavoring was so addictive without being overly spicy.

I hate to say it but we didn’t eat all the mains. We just had the one serving which the waiter gave us and of course I tried some of the naan and stuck our forks back into the dum aloo. 

Once the mains were cleared away out came the dessert! Two of them, relatively small looking to our approval. Milk & cookies which consisted of a mawa (vanilla) cake, burnt banana with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and tiny heart biscuits. But the winner of the two was the tropical fruit cornetto’s layered with mango and pineapple sorbet and topped with coconut whipped cream. A heavenly combination.


​The service was fantastic as usual and I can’t recommend this experience enough. My brother who was visiting was particularly impressed. What I love about CBT is that they change the menu every season and add new and exciting dishes. Not to mention the uber hip ambiance due to the house music mix being played in the background.

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.

Gluttonous at Gunaydin, Souk Al Bahar

The strangely named Gunaydin meaning Good Morning in Turkish, is the restaurants first foray into the UAE dining scene with a whopping 42 restaurants back in the motherland. Unusual meaning as they aren’t even open for breakfast.


Perfectly located opposite the Dubai Mall, it’s the first restaurant as you enter Souk Al Bahar on the right hand side and has prime positioning overlooking the Dubai Fountains with a long open air terrace.

Inside, you’ll find they have their own butcher when you can even purchase cuts of meat to take home with you. ​

​There’s also a bar inside (although they aren’t licensed), a counter of uncooked meats that you can choose from and an oven where they freshly cook all of their breads. Inside is spacious and modern with a pretty patterned floor and caters for groups of all sizes.


Not knowing what to order as the menu is bigger than I expected (and we were handed both an iPad and a standard printed menu) we ask for recommendations instead.

In no time at all out came a vast array of cold mezze, hot bread and salads arrive on the table.

The highlight for me and what I can’t wait to go back for is the panço cold mezze dip. A chunky dip consistency loaded with potatoes and eggplant and a thick white yoghurt with ample garlic. I pretty much wiped the plate clean.


Then came the kebabs. Oh the kebabs.


But it was the lamb kebab that blew my mind. Fresh off the grill the flavor was incredible. I haven’t tasted lamb this good since I lived in Australia. Ranging from 100dhs upwards for two skewers it’s definitely worth trying.


The staff at Gunaydin are mostly from Turkey and even though we may have struggled a little with language translation, they are super patient and polite.


The beef is sourced mainly from Australia whilst the lamb comes straight from Turkey. The Gunaydin specials are sliced tableside and then seared in a melting hot butter and seasoned with sea salt. Superb and a decent serving size for two.


The katmer was spot on. Flaky layers of pastry topped with sticky Turkish vanilla ice cream and a very generous serving of pistachios, it’s the perfect ending to the evening, especially if you’re a nut lover.


Traditionally Turkish Tea is consumed at the end of the meal to help aid digestion of what was for us, a meat heavy evening.

Having visited Nusret before, Gunaydin is definitely going to give them a run for it’s money. Especially as they tell me they will be opening a licensed steakhouse in the near future. Salt bae look out!

Good news is they will be open for Iftar during Ramadan. Make sure to secure your table. I definitely will be.

Tasty Thai @ Fuchsia, Bay Square

There’s no other dates I love than ones that involve catching up with a friend over delicious food. That’s exactly what we did at Fuchsia, a funky Thai joint in the middle of Bay Square.

Once you find building C you can take the elevator to Podium level where you’ll see Fuchsia right in front of you.


The restaurant has a lot of outdoor and indoor seating but due to it being in a business tower tends to be a little quieter on the weekends.

Due to the humidity we take a seat inside under the table with the brightest lights and glaze our eyes over the menu. It includes a monthly special menu which has some tantiliaing options including a lamb shank curry which we later order.


To quench my thirst I opt for the fresh coconut water which comes complete with a straw and a spoon for eating the flesh after the drink is finished. I like how they are already planning ahead. 😏


Our server for the evening assists us in choosing our appetizers, recommending the prawn cakes, the lemongrass chicken wings, the papaya salad and some dim sums. Prawn hargao is one of my all time favorites so I insisted that we try them and we weren’t disappointed. I could tell by the freshness that they were made in house and not just store bought frozen variety as I’ve tasted in other places.


Personally I thought the chicken wings were a little chewy but the seasoning was good. The prawn papaya salad had a nice kick thanks to the fresh chili slices but was light enough to eat a lot of. The prawn cakes were so compact and nothing like I was expecting. I think I’m more used to prawn toast.

As mentioned earlier for mains we opted for the monthly special, a very tender and very hearty lamb shank curry in a red sauce with chunks of potato and a side of brown rice which is actually black wild rice which looks purple. It comes served a little sticky which I love. 💜


We also tried the stir fry scallops which come served with a heap of veggies and scallops that are cut up rather than served whole, as well as a pad Thai which we ordered as chicken but gets served as prawn instead, both of which are so spicy for me I can feel steam coming out of my ears like in the cartoons.

My favorite main though was the lamb chops, which come topped with Thai herbs and spices and potatoes wedges which have a citrus kick which make my mouth water. Such a delectable dish and one I’d order again.

Too full for any dessert we sit and relax and let our food digest before moving on. I can now understand why Fuchsia is already a favorite amongst friends who live in the Business Bay Area.


Luckily for me there’s a branch in Barsha should I need my Thai fix.

Review of the Saturday Roast @ The Croft

If you’re British, or have lived in the U.K. or even have friends that did then you’d know all about a Sunday roast. It’s probably a tradition or ritual of sorts where all the family gathers together to catch up over a meal, be it cooked at home or out at a pub.

At home, it’s exciting as the you can smell the aromas of the meat of choice, roasting away in the oven for hours whilst you eagerly await dinner time.

For those British expats that miss the joys and accessibility of a Sunday (Saturday Roast) then fear no more.

Darren Velvick and the team at The Croft are whipping up one not to be missed. Served every Saturday from 4pm until gone, there are 5 options to choose from including chicken, beef sirloin, lamb loin, organic salmon and even a nut roast for the vegetarians.

Last night my friend and I tried the lamb loin and the beef sirloin, the former which comes with a side of mint sauce and the latter with a horseradish cream.


When they arrived I was so impressed with the portion size and presentation. They didn’t skimp on anything. They serve it with creamy sweet potato mash and crunchy roasted potatoes as well as heirloom carrots, purple cabbage and perfectly cooked broccoli. Not to mention the giant Yorkshire pudding filled with gravy. This is exactly what a roast dinner should look like.

If you like a tipple with your dinner then you can enjoy their happy hour with house vino from 28aed per glass or 135aed per bottle. The house white – colombelle blanc is sweet on the palette but refreshing on a warm afternoon.


You can choose to sit inside in front of the open plan kitchen or outside on the deck to soak up the last of the rays or catch the warm breeze. Inside you’ll see the masters at work plating up the special of the day.


If there’s any room left you might be tempted by the dessert menu which has quiet a few options to choose from. The warm chocolate with crispy cornflakes is for the chocolate fans, a warm fondant served with milk ice cream and chocolate flakes.


I went with the rhubarb & custard, a famously British dessert, which is served with blobs of cold custard amongst poached rhubarb sticks and crunchy crumbs of oats.


So if you’re looking for a deliciously filling dinner on a Saturday afternoon or evening then head to The Croft, 5th floor inside Dubai Marriott Harbour Hotel & Suites, where the service is warm, the atmosphere is relaxed and the food is sure to delight.

Cubano Lito – A slice of Cuba in Dubai

I’ve never been to Cuba before. It’s definitely on my travel bucket list though. So when an invite to try a fairly new Cuban bar/restaurant arrived in my inbox, I accepted almost immediately. 

Cubano Lito is located in the Ibis One Central hotel, not it’s neighbor next door. I (learnt that the hard way). It was inconspicuous from the outside, with no sign, just a giant teal door painted with a flower. We tried our luck and sure enough inside we find this hidden gem.

IMG_0738The owners have left no detail spare when it came to furnishing and decorating this corner space. From a cigar corner complete with a cabinet full of Cuban cigars to a fully tiled bar with rustic pieces like old barber chairs, a jukebox mixed with alternate leather and aqua seating even down to the bar tenders uniforms it all combines to really recreate the feel of Cuba adding so much charm and character.

IMG_0776IMG_0790

Should you prefer some fresh air there is also a small al fresco dining space surrounded by lots and lots of pot plants. Karina from Peru is our waitress for the night and my guest and her converse in Spanish. The food menu is made for sharing and the chef prepares us a selection of dishes to try. First up was some empanadas, one stuffed with beef and served with a creamy dill dipping sauce whilst the other was totally vegetarian and stuffed with halloumi cheese and guava paste, this one coming with a sweet plum sauce.IMG_0757The mixed grill is served for two and contains seafood and meat. Everything is char grilled so there’s a very slight chance that it could come over cooked and dry which is partly what we were thinking judging by how well done the meat was, however we were surprised to find how tender the meat was. The charred seafood was so tasty it didn’t need a sauce but a slight squeeze of lemon was a nice touch, however the squid or calamari rings were the only things I didn’t enjoy off the platter as I found them a little on the chewy side.

We also tried their mojito ceviche which was one of the best I’ve tried in Dubai, well diced pieces of white sea bass with loads of herbs and citrus juice with a nice kick from the one and chili. So addictive I end up finishing the pot to myself. Oops!

IMG_0761They have some great cocktails most of which are rum based of course, my favorite being the La Mula, (it only took me 3 cocktails to discover it).

IMG_0766By this stage I want to get up and dance. At 9:30 every night besides Sunday a live Colombian band play a mix of Spanish and international songs. Lucky for us there was some guests who happened to be salsa dancers so they got up and put on a show on the dance floor for us. I was mesmerised. 

IMG_0796Considering it’s only been open for 4 months, it pulls in a decent sized crowd, who are there to enjoy the live music and soak up the atmosphere.

Cubano Lito is definitely a hidden gem in Dubai and I’m looking forward to taking friends back here and also trying their desserts! Or perhaps even learning how to salsa!

Hakuna Matata @ KIZA

Let’s be honest. I hadn’t heard good things about KIZA so I was very hesitant to visit. However last Monday evening a bunch of food bloggers (myself included) gathered for another BME in DIFC. I’m so glad I got to try KIZA for myself as in the end I had nothing to worry about. Hakuna Mata!

IMG_0533

KIZA is located in the same building as Mint Leaf of London and is easily found on the Ground Floor. There is no valet service unfortunately so depending on where you park you will have to pay.

IMG_5596.JPG

Our evening starts with a change of outfits. We were lucky enough to wear some incredible designs by Ntombi Couture. After a small photoshoot, we enjoy a welcome cocktail or mocktail of our choice. I opted for the passionfruit mojito which was served with a load of ice, fresh mint and fresh passionfruit. (My fave!)

IMG_0540

KIZA used to be located somewhere in Healthcare City and was a lot smaller venue/bar. The new space in DIFC is huge! It has a bar which takes centre stage lined with African drums as chairs. In the middle is the DJ booth and dance floor where we learn from the African staff members how to do a traditional dance which they do at weddings. It was super fun!

IMG_0534

Once we eventually sit down we are served two small portions of soups to try back to back. A pepper lamb soup which is very spicy, I nearly choke as the pepper goes down the wrong hole. The choking aside the lamb adds a nice meaty flavor to the broth although some of the lamb pieces were a little too fatty for me to finish my bowl. Next up was a lentil soup which was very powdery on my palette.

IMG_0550

From the starters menu we also try the Kiza mango salad, special BBQ grilled chicken wings and African meat pattys. The Kiza mango salad was fresh – I love the addition of fruits in salads which adds sweetness and the addition of walnuts for the crunchy texture.

The BBQ wings had a nice sauce I only wish there was more of it and I personally would of preferred if the wings were left on the grill for a little longer, as the chicken skin was a bit soggy. The African meat pattys are equivalent to South American espanadas, a thick pastry baked with a filling of minced meat and vegetables. Warm and comforting and addictive, I could of easily downed the whole plate to myself.

Before main courses arrive we change seats so we can get to mingle with other people. The smiling staff offer us a glass of red or white wine to go with our meals. First out of the kitchen was the African kale, Peri Peri Prawns and the jollof rice. The sauteed kale was drool worthy and the prawns were so big and mean looking and tasting. The jollof rice is a red tomato based rice which is a nice base for the Kenyan vegetable stew which is a little on the spicy side.

Next out was the Mixed Grill Platter which was huge in portion size and perfect for sharing, however juicy the meat looked i still found some pieces I tried to be on the dry side. Looks can be deceiving!

IMG_0578

The masala fries which landed on the table at the same time were thick cut potato fries rolled in ample amounts of masala spices and herbs.

IMG_0582

The sea bream was served whole and then cut up into pieces. A fleshy meat, (but beware of the bones); I enjoyed it with Kiza’s special African sauce which was served with the prawns.

IMG_0576

From the desserts we tried I most enjoyed the Pineapple upside down cake. The cake was light and fluffy and had a coconut flavor to it, whilst the cooked pineapple is just enough sweetness to end a filling African meal.

IMG_0585

For those who are lucky to work in the DIFC area and love an after work tipple KIZA have a happy hour from 4-8 everyday!

The food menu is quite reasonably priced considering it’s classified as fine dining. There’s definitely some items I’d order again like the African meat pattys, Peri Peri Prawns and the Kiza salad.

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.

IMG_7973

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.

IMG_7936

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. 

IMG_7938

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.

IMG_7945

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.

IMG_7947

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. 

IMG_7962

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!

IMG_7970

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.
