The most Romantic Restaurant in Dubai – Vanita’s at Palazzo Versace
The elegant single white rose, that stands tall at the entrance of Vanita’s captures the sense of romance and charm, that is Vanita’s. The waterfront, signature Italian restaurant at the Palazzo Versace Hotel overlooks the Dubai Creek. It’s an utterly luxurious restaurant, that is a tribute true to Versace grandeur. There’s something rather endearing about Vanita’s from the moment you enter. The gentle glow from the candle light, and abundance of red roses just fills you with joy. The Versace Rosenthal tableware is absolutely stunning and it was quite clear from the start, the evening was to be exemplary. The platter of warm assorted breads included a deliciously light focaccia with sun blushed tomatoes and bread sticks. Served with a zucchini and chickpea accompaniments this was a perfect start. The amuse bouche was a unique light, saffron crisp, encasing a green basil sponge and topped with a cooling creamed cheese. There was something rather regal about the presentation of the starters. Each dish, served as a plate of art. The creamy Burrata “Caseificio Artigiana” was surrounded by a crown of pinzimonio vegetables and a green curry jelly, and just looked phenomenal. The Orto was a circle of deliciously fresh seared and gently […]
Tasting the New Spring Menu at The Perch, Oxford
Set amongst the meadows of Binsey, The Perch is a quintessentially British gastropub, that has beautifully preserved it’s 17th century heritage. It’s traditional thatched roof, with smoke bellowing from the chimney is charming. There’s a rustic feel, as the log fire burns, making it all rather cosy. The Perch’s new Spring Menu is worth venturing out for and it’s clearly popular amongst locals, with a full house mid week. The Butchers Board starter was a hearty platter exploding with smoked goose, home corned beef, Kelmscott salami, country pork pate,and served with a warm, rustic, homemade bread. The Charred Sprouting Broccoli, was fresh and buttery, topped with a perfectly poached duck egg served with fried, crunchy, salty capers. The meaty Chargrilled 8oz Burger,came fully loaded with farmhouse cheddar, bacon & tomato relish. Triple cooked chips are a guilty pleasure that we can never resist and were cooked to perfection. The Free-Range Pork Belly, on a bed of tangy scrumpy braised carrots, with crackling & pear mustard was delicious. One cannot visit a pub without trying their homemade dessert, especially when there is crumble on the menu. Even if it means loosening a belt, or popping a button, it is well worth it. This was no ordinary crumble. The Binsey Apple & Ginger crumble was fragrant and heart warming. The unique ginger and apple combination was […]
The Wedding Reception, London
Interactive Theatre International present a unique, theatrical dining experience at the lovely Kingsway Hall Hotel, in the heart of London’s theatre district. The moment you walk in you are cleverly immersed, as a guest, into Kate and Will’s big day. A wedding reception neither of them wanted. It is hilariously scripted, with the cast of four actors swiftly transitioning, seamlessly into multiple roles. The nightmare pseudo-wedding is witty and far fetched, full of surprises and mishaps. Imagine an intoxicated best man running around, jumping on tables, catching bread rolls in his underwear. A bride losing her locks, getting her hair caught in her father-in-laws crotch. A strange Aunty making a toast with a glass full of Grandma’s ashes, before the family break out into a rendition of “Thriller.” It’s a light hearted, laugh out loud performance. “The Wedding Reception” makes for an entertaining evening, whilst tucking into a delicious three course meal. The fabulously fun performance will make most weddings seem rather dull. Be sure to catch this show whilst it’s touring UK & Australia. The Wedding Reception, Kingsway Hall Hotel, Covent Garden, London. **This is sponsored post, however views are our own.
A Scenic Flight over Dubai with Seawings
Dubai is a city that has clearly been designed to be appreciated from above. You really can’t say you have seen Dubai until you have seen it from the sky. Seawings offer a unique experience to fly over Dubai and enjoy sensational, aerial views over the city. We couldn’t quite contain our excitement for this trip, as it’s been on our bucket list for a long while. The scenic seaplane journey starts from Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club. It’s a plush plane that glides through the water and before you know it you’re up in the sky. The seaplane has comfortable leather seats and is fully air conditioned, with complementary bottles of water provided for the journey. As the seaplane circles over Dubai, one can quickly spot the iconic buildings that make up the Dubai skyline. The Arabian Gulf shimmers in the sun and the views are utterly breath taking. Dubai is totally magnificent anyway, but the perspective from Seawings is just spectacular. The Burj Khalifa stands proud in downtown Dubai, as the tallest building in the world. The scenes are simply awe inspiring. The man made island in the sea, The Palm is to be marvelled over. The Palm is so perfectly formed, and the unmistakable silhouette of the […]
A Night at the Opera at TWID
Constantly in search of the next novel experience in London, we just found the first of its kind at TWID, in Battersea.”That’s What I do,” is a fun, dining experience that sees you immersed in live opera. Behind the facade of a converted pub, a peek through the curtains, and you are transported into what appears to be an almost, traditional theatre. There’s something rather exciting about going up the small set of stairs to the private opera boxes. There are interesting stone statues scattered around the restaurant, and clearly a lot of thought has gone into the décor, at first glance. By light of day, the décor is a bit rough around the edges, but as night falls it’s easier to look past the chipboard ceiling and appreciate the romantic booths, and the atmosphere that’s been created. The menu has a nice selection of small plates to choose from, that are ideal to share. They are actually far from small, and rather substantial dishes, and probably no more than five would suffice for two. There’s a call bell on the table, which is genius- if only every restaurant had this. It allows the experience to be private and intimate whilst maintaining attentive service. Sipping on a mojito is always the best way to start the evening. Following the a […]
Sitting at the foothills of the Alps, besides the fish pond in Zug, the Fischteich Lech is not to be missed. With a traditional, wooden chalet feel, there’s something rather cosy and quaint about this restaurant. One can’t help but feel like you have been transported back in time. Although this restaurant is renowned for it’s fish, it seemed the perfect opportunity to try the Kasenodelsuppe- a traditional Austrian cheese dumpling soup. The soft, semolina dumplings sandwiched together with cheese, tossed into a piping hot clear broth , were surprisingly light and delicious. All the fish on the menu is freshly caught daily, and it really seems to make a remarkable difference to the flavour. Accompanied by a rainbow salad, the buttery pan-fried trout had a perfectly crispy skin. Served on a bed of spaghetti, alongside a tomato sauce, this dish was cooked to perfection. The freshness of the fish really turned a humble dish into something special. The Kaiserchmarren were recommended as a local favourite, not to be missed. When there are pancakes on offer, there’s not much persuasion required for dessert. From the moment the warm, sugar dusted balls of pancake were brought to the table, came a gentle, sweet aroma. The pancakes are rather moreish, especially when doused with the sweet apple and plum compoted. Served on a platter made for […]
The Magical Christmas Experience at Lapland UK
Children all over the world are told fond Christmas tales about the hardworking elves, making toys tirelessly for Santa. The stories are mystical and enchanting, and it’s every child’s dream to be a part of it. Just imagine the look on your child’s face, when you tell them they can become Santa’s little helper in the North Pole. At Lapland UK, Christmas is brought to life in the annual, immersive, award-winning experience. From the moment the invitation arrives, the excitement is infectious, and sees grown adults turning into big kids, as they anticipate enacting their childhood dream. There’s a distinct dizzying feeling, whilst walking through the Enchanted Forest and being whisked away, from Whitmore Forest to the North Pole. The intricate attention to detail, from beginning to end, is just charming. There’s no mistake that you have arrived somewhere rather special. Greeted by jolly elves at check in, the children are given Elf passports, to collect stamps along the adventure. The elves are ever so cheeky and soon have you joining in on their songs and silliness. Be prepared to place your thumb on your nose and wiggle your fingers in jest, as the customary greeting throughout Lapland. The journey begins, with a group tour, through the illuminated evergreen […]
The Culinary Feast at Cosmo
Buffets are a really fun way to try new cuisines and completely overindulge. With over 150 dishes from all over the world, East meets West at Cosmo. It really is a feast for the eyes as much as it is for the palate. Walking in one can’t help but stop at the enormous dessert counter and the chocolate fountain. It takes a lot of self control to not just start with dessert. The international cuisines take you on a culinary journey from Italy to China, India, Japan and even Mexico. The variety of food is endless and the aromas coming off the live grill stations is mouth-watering. We tend to have an overwhelming sense of FOMO (fear of missing out) when it comes to buffets. The best advice is to eat little and often, to try as much of the food as possible. But better still, save some cuisines for the next visit as there is no way you can possibly try the hundreds of variations on offer. They really do seem to have every type of food you can possibly imagine, whether it’s a pizza, tacos, chicken korma or sushi that you are in the mood for. On a Saturday night the restaurant is really buzzing, […]
The Pottery Tapas Bar, Kingston
Spanish tapas are best enjoyed as a group. Small tapas plates are great for sharing and exploring a menu. The Pottery Tapas Bar is all twinkly with fairy lights which gives it a festive feeling. Chairs topped with Santa Clause covers gives it a quirky, fun feel. We savoured a few of the mouthwatering dishes from the extensive menu and they were all delicious. From the hearty portion of nachos smothered in guacamole, the crispy white bait, to the the flavoursome seafood paella. The lamb with mint gravy was succulent and well seasoned, the calamari in a garlic sauce was lovely too. The chorizo was great and the meatballs in a tangy tomato sauce were moreish. The moist chocolate cake topped with glacé cherries and a crown of a sweet spun sugar, was rather impressive. The service is excellent and although great for a group, the candlelit setting is quite romantic too.
Robot Restaurant, Tokyo
The Robot Restaurant in Shinkjuku is an exhilarating experience. The evening starts in a cycadelic lounge sat in a golden snail with neon lights and mirrors. It’s rather bizarre but that’s all part of eras mataz, that is rather whacky and intriguing.The arena is quaint and the robots huge. Front row seats guarantee the need to sit back and duck, whilst you tuck into your bento box, to avoid losing an eye. The performers are electric and high energy and this show can only be described a bit like Lady Gaga meets Power Rangers and Kung fu panda. Dodge lasers and wave your glow sticks as you are wowed by the performance. It’s a definitely a fun way to spend an evening in Tokyo. The Robot Restaurant, Shinjuku, Tokyo
Hummus Bros, London
Looking for something slightly different to cater your next event or meeting? Have you tried Hummus Bros? “Give peas a chance” and you will look no further after you see their spread. It’s impressive, fresh and deliciously inspired by the Mediterranean. Fully loaded bowls with hummus smeared strategically on the bottom of the bowl, before being piled high with chicken, falafel, tabouleh, chilli sauce and a drizzle of lemon before being sprinkled with paprika. Served with a flatbread or carrots, this is hearty and wholesome and will leave you content and craving more. Catch them at their pop up events or one of their four London branches. Hummus Bros, Wardour Street
Michelin Star Dining at Galvin At Windows
Michelin starred restaurant, Galvin at Windows reaches gastronomic heights on the 28th floor of the Hilton Park Lane. The views of London are exceptional, and the large windows allow the restaurant to glow as the sun beams in. The décor is minimalist and rather modern, stylish and sophisticated. There are postcards on the table which the restaurant will post for you anywhere in the world. This is such a lovely, unique idea and feels quite nostalgic. The muddled minty mojitos are refreshing and can be enjoyed at the bar or at the table. The smell of the freshly baked bread is just dreamy, and there’s a nice selection to tear and share. It’s always such a pleasure when the first course arrives, and it affirms all the accolades of a restaurant. Who said salads are boring? The fruity salad of goat’s cheese, beetroot, orange, pistachio and honey was a rainbow of colours. Wonderfully packed full of flavour, each component complimented the other perfectly. The main course of poached corn fed chicken breast, crispy leg, bois bourdon and hazelnut was slightly underwhelming in comparison as it seemed simplistic in it’s presentation and execution. Although admittedly, it did taste absolutely delicious. The Valrhona chocolate fondant was cooked perfectly, with a centre that […]
Tooti Candy Factory, Takeshita Street, Tokyo
Takeshita street in Tokyo has to be one of the cutest streets in the world with stores brimming full of pink, fluffy objects.
Blossoming Gifts Flowers
There’s always something special about receiving flowers. Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, Valentine’s or Mother’s Day, flowers tend to make people happy. Perhaps even more so when they are an unexpected surprise for no particular reason. Gone are the days of grabbing flowers from a petrol station or having to visit a local florist for a hand tied bouquet. Blossoming Gifts offer a wide range of beautiful flowers online, available for next day home delivery. The gifts come beautifully packaged in a sturdy box, arriving fresh and without a petal out of place. Anyone would be thrilled to receive a gorgeous multicoloured spray of roses, from Blossoming Gifts, which is just stunning. The bouquet is bursting full of what looks like, at least a hundred vibrant, bold roses. The sophisticated fusion of bright yellow with splashes of red roses, are unique and really rather pretty. The lightly fragranced baby pink roses, peachy orange, and deep red roses compliment these perfectly. The colourful roses release a the most gentle, yet uplifting scent. With plenty of buds ready to bloom these flowers become even more beautiful as the days go on. Flowers are perfect for most occasions. Consider adding a vase, chocolates […]
