Aubaine – Dubai Mall, Dubai

Coming home from NYE celebration were very late. It was about 3:30 am, and we were so tired. Though we woke up about 11 am in the morning, got ready and went to the Dubai Mall for breakfast and shopping. Right next to the main entrance of the Dubai Mall is the Aubaine Restaurant & Bakery. It is a french themed restaurant that offers pastries and breakfast.

We started with some delicious bread along with the yummiest jams and some fresh tea from Mariage Frères. I went with the Thé Vert Fuji-Yama Earl Grey Impérial, which is Green Tea from the Mount Fuji in Japan 😉

For breakfast I went with an omelette filled with tomatoes, cheese and mushrooms along with some delicious kale, slow roasted cherry tomatoes and sourdough bread. It was so good 😉 (Didn’t take any pictures). We really enjoyed our breakfasts. The strawberry jam from Aubaine is so delicious, so we both bought some bottles of these 😉

Bombay Urban Cafe, Dubai

After the helicopter tour and visiting the Dubai Frame, where we went for a very big walk, my friend was so exhausted, and only wanted to take some rest – actually sleep, and I was bored AF as I wanted to go for shopping on my own. Dubai is one of the safest places in the world, you can go wherever you want on your own. As we’d already been to Dubai Mall several times, I decided to go to the Mall of the Emirates for some shopping. The Mall of the Emirates has more than 560 shops, more than 90 dining options, 5 star hotels and world’s biggest indoor ski – what an incredible view it has!

The Mall of the Emirates is located near our hotel in Al Barsha, but I went there with a taxi, as I was not sure about walking. Going there with taxi still took about 8-10 minutes.

After the shopping I went for dinner at an indian restaurant nearby our hotel – Bombay Urban Cafe. Continue reading “Bombay Urban Cafe, Dubai”

Jumeirah Beach Hotel – Villa Beach Restaurant, Dubai

The 2nd day in Dubai started with a sightseeing at Souk a Bahar, following with lunch at Jumeirah Beach. I love beaches, and spending time here is like meditation; just watching the beautiful waves and the sound of water is so mesmerizing. In addition, of course Jumeirah Beach is necessary a visit!

I chose to have our lunch at Villa Beach Restaurant at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel. It has the most beautiful view of the beach and the Burj al Arab 😉 Continue reading “Jumeirah Beach Hotel – Villa Beach Restaurant, Dubai”
