We had some amazing food experiences this year. Here are our faves from 2019!

Tres Leches at VaKaVa

This dessert turned me! I didn’t think I’d like the consistency or taste but was happy happy happy to be proven  wrong. Scheming to get back for a rematch!


Butter chicken & burrata panuozzo at Gino’s Deli

This was somewhat of a culinary revelation for me. What an inspired combination! I could easily eat a couple at one sitting. Divine!

Risotto Osso Bucco at Sacci

This dish was simply incredible and ticks all the boxes: presentation, taste and a huge ‘want more’ factor. There isn’t a better risotto in the city: it’s absolutely glorious.

La Bomba at VakaVa

Dessert isn’t usually my thing but this dish came crashing into my list of favourites, quite literally. Chocolate, berries, brownies covered in strawberry sauce and caramel.


Pumpkin Gnocchi at Filini Garden

Little pillows of goodness, this creamy, pumpkin gnocchi is the perfect comfort meal. It washes down well with a glass of white while watching the sunset over the Abu Dhabi skyline.


Feta Tempura at Mazi

I refer to this little parcel as the ‘feta bomb’. To be eaten in just one bite, the flavours of the lemon marmalade and caper meringue cuts through the salty taste of the feta and explodes in your mouth! Yia Mas!

Turkish Eggs at Tean

Perfectly poached eggs, lashings of fresh yoghurt, smoked salmon and dill. Drizzled with chili oil and  served with warm bread to dunk it all in. What more could you ask for?


Elaborate Seafood Tower
at Turtle Bay

Chilled crab, mussels, oysters, lobster, two kinds of ceviches and prawns. It’s a seafood lovers paradise.

Chicken Finger Combo
at Raising Canes

Crunchy chicken strips, peppery sauce with crinkle cut fries and coleslaw. I’m officially a ‘Caniac’!

La Bomba at Vakava

What an amazing dessert – it has something for everyone and it was all good! I loved the brownie especially.


Superpoke at Boutik Mall

This is my go-to for fresh, healthy food. It never fails to satisfy me, regardless of which combination I try.


Tomahawk at Flavors

Tomohawk steaks are my favourite cut but this one stood out for me because of the excellent standard of cooking and reasonable price.
