Royal Affair for Iftar at Bombay Brasserie

Trail along an exotic and royal journey at Bombay Brasserie, located in Taj Dubai, as you feast upon dishes, inspired by the ancient secret recipes which were prepared in royal kitchens (Dastarkhwan) tracing back to the 17th century, written in the manuscript of Nuskha E Shahkajani.


As we made ourselves comfortable in one of the many seated areas, offering pristine views of the Iconic Burj Khalifa, we could not help but admire the traditional and modernist paintings of kings and colorful plush cushions, adding a modern aura to the restaurant along with an open kitchen where you can seat yourself down to enjoy a quick chaat. We started off by indulging in a hand cleansing ritual in a ornate dish adorned with rose petals.


Each dish is replicated based on the original with a middle eastern touch, creating a broader appeal.The highlights for me was the kofta shahi mani – fish kofta grilled with a culmination of spices like cinnamon, fennel seeds cooked in a meld of sesame oil and ghee – the kofta was so soft and tender that they melt in your mouth leaving you wanting for more, the yakhni teh bala, which bears a semblance to lamb biryani , but is actually cooked in goat stock with an amalgamation of ghee and cloves to give the rice a fragrant flavor – the rice had a nice moist flavor to it and reminded me a lot of home with the flavors being similar and making this a comfort dish at ease. The kaliyan shirazi, braised lamb shanks, aside from being picture perfect had me in awe as the meat fell so easily off the bone is cooked in saffron, packed with the nutrients of apricot, raisins, almonds and pistachios making it for quite a rich dish on its own. The harees badshahi is robust with flavor as the lamb mince is placed on fried brinjal fritter and the perfect couple of flavor and can be eaten as a taco. The dishes do have some exotic names that would surely leave you saying a tongue twister, but each dish varies in taste and holds a magic of its own.

Craving for some sugar after a delicious main course? I promise you, this is one of the best phirnis i have met in a while, a creamy rice based dessert, met with flavors of cardamom, a pinch of fragrant saffron cooked in a concoction of milk and sugar, leaving you to relish each and every bite.


With a modern ambience, offering pristine views and a feast to indulge in, which holds a story of its own, the set menu iftar Bombay Brasserie is a definite must try, priced at Aed 225

Iftar at Movenpick JBR

The Talk at Movenpick Jumeirah Beach offers Iftar which is truly a traditional blend of Arabic and international delicacies along with a delectable selection of desserts leaving you satisfied whole heartedly.

With live cooking stations devoted to Italian where you can have your made to order pasta, authentic Indian if you would like to feast on some delicious kebabs and one of my favorites, a shawarma counter, my favorite comfort street snack along with an extensive selection of dishes ,salads and desserts for your palate to enjoy , accompanied by the peaceful rhythms of the oud player making for a harmonious environment.

Some of my favorites from the buffet were the stir fried beef, soft and tender and generously packed with the flavor of spices, the grilled salmon delivering fulsome flavor , the chicken lollipop , crispy to the bite and leaving you wanting for more and the variants of kebabs, juicy, seasoned well with spices and ultimately melt in your mouth.

From the desserts, the highlights were the umali and the baklava both making for wonderful treats and a perfect way to end the meal. I usually love my umali on the less sweeter side and was hence pleased with the taste of this pudding as it was light hearted and warm. The baklava had a nice crunch to it with a little moisture, making it easy to slice into.Though it was a tad bit sweet for me , i loved how crisp its texture was.

The iftar is priced at Aed 160 including fresh juices and pleasant for a family get together or a quick catch up with friends.

Iftar At Layali Zaman, Le Meridien Dubai

Embrace the month of Ramadan by feasting on a scrumptious iftar held at the ambient Layali Zaman located at le Merdien Garhoud. Layali Zaman which means “ancient times” when translated, holds testament not just for its food factor but also the ambience showcasing arabesque interiors and beautifully lit chandeliers making for a promising atmosphere, to be shared with loved ones.

With a lavish spread varying from salads and mezzes, live cooking stations featuring an indian bread counter, italian and shawarma station and an assortment of main dishes originating from far and near and a satisfying dessert counter, you will undoubtedly have yourself tempted to try out all the dishes even if you had to queue up more than once.

Some of the highlights of the iftar were the lamb ouzi, the meat was genuinely soft and tender and when combined with aromatic and flavored rice was enjoyable to the very last bite.


The prawn tikka was one of my cult favorites as the culmination of various spices lent flavor to the plump prawns making them succulent ,and was a definite best seller and a perfect treat for seafood lovers as we had ourselves coming back for second servings.

The arabic mixed grill was another favorite as there were an assortment of various meats such as lamb chops, shish taouk and beef koftas. It was hard for me to pick a favorite but if i had to choose it would be the lamb chops, which were juicy, perfectly grilled and held a wondrous flavor.

The beef stroganoff was a pleasant surprise as it is not common to find this dish on the menu during the iftar but Layali Zaman takes care to have a little something to suit all palates. The tender strips of beef are cooked beautifully in a creamy and light silky sauce, robust with flavor and best enjoyed with a bowl of steamed rice.

As the fragrant aroma of crepes called out to me ever so softly, i could not resist and had myself a crepe made in seconds, thanks to the live counter on display, which could be paired with a choice of sauces , as i leaned towards a gracious dollop of nutella. From rich and diverse arabic sweets consisting of umali, rice pudding and varieties of ice creams, i could not help but dive into a serving of gulab jamun , small round sized dough balls soaked in a sweet syrup, though a little on the sweeter side, they literally melted in my mouth as the interior was ultra moist, thanks to the syrup.

The iftar is priced at Aed 165 per person and is a definite must try for this steal of a price. For reservations: 04 702 2618.

Holiday Work Out Tips from The Talented Team at Embody Fitness

How to stick to your fitness goals during the busy summer months!

With summer in full swing and all those fabulous holidays booked, the team at Dubai’s leading luxury member’s only gym, Embody Fitness, have outlined 6 essential tips to maintain your fitness goals. The award winning fitness center will ensure that your jet set lifestyle doesn’t affect your physique with some simple suggestions for your holiday work out.

After working so hard to get your guns out when the sun’s out, don’t let go of your routine during the jam packed summer holidays! Rob Richards, Head Trainer of Embody Fitness with over 25 years of experience in the field as a strength and conditioning coach, outlines easy work out tips to help you keep in shape while you travel from coast to coast, making sure you shine in the sand this summer.

1. Do You Need to Workout?

The first question to ask yourself with holiday workouts is do you need to workout? If you’re only going away for a few days then you probably don’t need to make any workout plans, but if you’re going away for longer it might be a good time to get creative with your fitness, and put a plan in place. For example, you could plan to train really hard for the 4 weeks before your holiday and then take the time off as a planned rest week. 

2. Do The Other Stuff

What is the other stuff?  The other stuff is ‘the stuff’ that you always should do but don’t. A great example of this is stretching and holiday is a great opportunity to dedicate some time to really stretch out your muscles. This helps working on your mobility and also on core strength and stability. To get in a good stretch you don’t need a gym, so you can spend your energy focusing on those neglected areas, which can in return bring on some amazing results.

3. Start Moving Your Body

No gym – no problem! Bodyweight workouts are a great solution if you don’t have access to a gym while on holiday and also provide great results. You can do bodyweight circuits almost anywhere and keep in shape! Think squats, planks, sit ups, push ups and pull ups. These are all low tech exercises but are high in reward.

4. Slow It Down

Slow it down and focus on the movement. For example if you find yourself in a hotel with a basic gym and no heavy weights – no issue here! Instead you can just vary the speed of the movements to still generate strong results. Try a bench press with 5 sec up and 5 sec down,  or do a bicep curl 10 sec up and 10 sec down. For this you don’t need much weight to get the desired results and you can also work on perfecting your technique.

5. Try Something New

If you find yourself on holiday with no gym in sight – get creative and try something new. Go on a bike ride, or hop on the beach for a quick game of volleyball, grab a partner and play some tennis or even go swimming, jump in the pool and do some laps! Think of something you don’t normally do in your day to day work out regime and you’re bound to feel some ‘new’ muscles.

6. Go Big But Not Often

If your away for a long time and feel your losing those hard earned muscles then you can always find a local gym and do 2 maintenance sessions a week. These are not designed to break any records but just to keep you in the groove and to keep your fitness levels up.  If you can fit in two full body workouts a week that should keep you on track even if your away for a for a long period of time and will help you keep that summer body!

Cool down this summer with Six Senses

BANGKOK – June 1, 2017 – Ice cream lovers rejoice. The mouth-watering frozen delights at Six Senses resorts are handmade, full of local healthy ingredients and empty of processed rubbish. What’s more, they are complimentary at selected times during each day, which means it’s always ice cream o’clock in one of the worldwide destinations.

These tempting summer treats are a rainbow of colors and a spectrum of natural flavors. The selections and toppings vary from day to day to keep taste buds tantalized and decision-making skills honed. Do you go for the Japanese Green Tea or Vietnamese Coffee? Toffee Banana Ginger or Black Forest and Lemongrass?

At Six Senses Laamu in the Maldives, the complimentary line-up stretches to 42 flavors introducing guests to tropical Pandan and Honeydew Melon. Healthier options (did you know ice cream is already a source of vitamins A through to E?) offer dairy-free Coconut, sugar-free natural Yoghurt and dairy-free/sugar-free Banana. On the island of Félicité in Seychelles, the Six Senses Zil Pasyon ice cream expert cruises around the island in a truck to serve guests as they dip their toes into the pool. The free ice cream is made from local fruit with the house specialty created from vanilla beans harvested from the island’s own plantation.
