Wake Up Reykjavík Food Tour Review

With food being such an important part of our daily lives and culture, is there a better way to get to know a new city than to eat your way around the most delicious and unique spots?  We don’t think so! When we decided to forgo driving Iceland’s Ring Road, instead mostly basing ourselves in […]

Busaba Eathai JBR Dubai review

It’s hard to beat a good Thai curry but over the last year in the UAE our Thai-food intake has drastically declined.  There are lots of fantastic food choices here in our corner the Middle East but we’ve struggled to find a stand-out Thai option – that is, until now. We were invited to join […]

A Foodie’s Paradise: Eating Italy – Rome (+ Your Discount Code!)

There are few countries as synonymous for their food as Italy; even before setting foot here, we were aware of how Italians cherish their food and the traditions that come with it.  It seemed inevitable then, that part of our time in Italy’s capital city, Rome, would be spent checking out some of their local dishes […]

Fine Dining at the Ritz-Carlton: Brunching Abu Dhabi Style

There are few brands as synonymous with luxury as that of the Ritz-Carlton; even the widely recognised logo, featuring a lion and a crown, gives a nod to luxury and wealth. Brunching is a favourite past-time for many expats living in the United Arab Emirates; this is not your standard run-of-the-mill eggs benedict at 11am though.  Brunch U.A.E […]
