DFT in Dubai Part 2

Romano's Macaroni Grill
Dubai Mall (fronting The Aquarium)
Cuisine: Italian-American

If you get a little tired from walking around the Dubai Mall but also wanted to see more of the Aquarium, you can choose a seat in the Romano's Macaroni Grill facing the giant aquarium!

Calamari Fritti
Parmesan-Crusted Hammour
Roasted Chicken And Arugula Flatbread
Strawberry Lemonade
Sicilian Orange Italian Soda
Cranberry Orange Spritz

Mado Cafe
Dubai Mall
Turkish Cafe

If you are in the mood to try Turkish desserts and the healthiest ice cream made from 100% Goat's Milk with no artificial preservatives, the Mado Cafe is a place for you. They also offer other Turkish dishes but their selection of Baklava is surely an experience that you may don't want to miss if you are in this cafe.

What we had:
Pistachio Baklava
Pistachio Kadayif with a serving of Kahramanmarash (ice cream)
Turkish Tea

Chicken Mandi
Corniche, Sharjah
Traditional Arabic

Imagine yourself in traditional Arabic restaurant where there are carpeted floors from where you will be served with your food just like how it is done traditionally. However, this is a modern version where the place is air-conditioned and several sanitation procedures are done in order to make sure that you still enjoy the Arabic-themed dinner without worrying that you are eating leftovers from previous customers or eating from soiled carpet.

What we had:
Chicken Mandi set meal
(with rice, salad and yogurt)

Price: Dhs17 per set meal

Mina Road, Satwa, Dubai

Don't be surprised, there are Koreans in Dubai as well and they have introduced some authentic way of serving their food. We found this very intimate place in Satwa where they serve very good Korean dishes in very affordable price. In fact, the serve alooot of Kimchi as appetizer and can adjust the level of the spiciness of your food as Korean dishes can be a little too hot for some people.

What we had:
Tofu Joen (Pan-fried Tofu)
Haemul Joengol (Mixed Seafood Cooked in Casserole)
Beef Bulgogi

Price range: Dhs45.00 to 150.00 (ideal for sharing)

Nando's Peri-Peri

This is one of the first few restaurants that I have visited in my first trip to Dubai back in 2009.  Its a restaurant that reminded me of the long street barbecue (grill) in Davao. Nando's however made their chicken must interesting by varying the marinade and the dipping sauce/ siding of the chicken that changes the flavor the chicken.

What we had:
Nando's Chicken Platter

Price: Dhs105.00 (shared by 4)

Souk Al Bahar, Downtown Dubai

There is no other perfect spot to witness the Dubai Fountain show than in Urbano. Situated right beside the Dubai Fountain is an Italian restaurant that serves pasta, pizza and other favorite. You can choose to dine outside or stay inside the air-conditioned section and just join the crowd every 30 minutes when the fountain show play.

What we had:
Caesar Salad
Tagliatelle Gamberi e Funghi (Pasta)
Capricciosa (Pizza)

Price range: Dhs 50.00 to 90.00

  4. Last week we (Father, mother, sister) went to dinner when we visited in Dubai at Wagamama in Crown Plaza. You know That was an amazing experience for us. They serve Asian , Japanese noodle bar style food and healthy fresh juices. They have family friendly environment for people who wanted to visit there. My mother liked chilli dishes in there. After marriage I want to go there with my husband. And it is my dream now.
