Girls' Talk for the month of December is all about revisiting the places where we enjoyed to dine, date, have fun, or where you spent a fabulous vacation. I think this is very timely as it will give me a chance to wrap up our Best of 2010.
I am also writing this for the people planning to visit Dubai. All GT posts will be divided in three: Budget, Mid- Range, and Luxury.
Here my dear readers are the places I enjoy and recommend to dine.
Budget: Under 50 AED for 2
1. Taza (Branch in Rigga and Al Satwa)
**They serve the best fried chicken in the whole wide world. It's juicy, crispy, tasty. Hubby and I are never fond of fried chicken but that all change when we visited Taza. The food chain is originally from Saudi Arabia.
2. Tipanan/Tagpuan (Branch in Rigga and Al Karama)
**They are the unbeatable Filipino restaurant in Dubai. Although they do not serve pork, their Bulalo Steak and Beef Asado makes up for it.
3. Picnic Restaurant (Al Satwa); WideRange Restaurant (Al Karama)
**They have the tastiest shawarma in town!
4. Jabal Al Noor (Al Dhiyafa)
**Is where you can get a good introduction to Biryani and Grilled Lamb chops
Mid Range: 200AED for 2
Any visitor to the city should experience what they call The Dubai Friday Brunch. This is where posh hotel restaurants open their doors to lavish intercontinental buffet including unlimited alcoholic drinks that even the most glutunous person would beg for the food to stop coming. But since this is done by almost all starred restaurants, I will choose which has the most unique ambiance
1. Planet Hollywood
**If you are a movie fan, this is the best place to visit. You can take time off from the sumptuous buffet and browse on the movie memorabilia around the place. There are entertainment for kids and they are served a different buffet as well.
2.Sezzam, Kempinski Hotel, Mall of The Emirates
**Whether you come to experience Dubai indoor-ski, or just content to watch from afar, Sezzam will give you a good view.
Luxury: 800+AED for 2
1. Al Muntaha
**For reasons that you can get inside the world's only 7-star hotel and get a good view of Dubai's skyline and the iconic man-made islands. Food as well is superb thanks to their multi-awarded Chef.
**It is located in Jumeirah The Meydan and the best place to watch out for Sheikhs coming for their afternoon tea. You will have a view of the racecourse where world millionaires run their horses (and yes a huge probability to see the horses from the Ruler of Dubai's stable). Moreover, the hotel is included in the filming of Tom Cruise's Mission Impossible IV. Need I say more? ((^_^))
