Reviewed: Logma @ Boxpark Dubai

The other day we had visited Logma in Dubai’s recently opened BoxPark, a chique Container Style Shopping and Dining destination, on Al Wasl Road in Al Safa. It offers a modern take on traditional Emirati cuisine in a friendly and authentic ambience that mirrors Dubai’s flair for combining the traditional with the contemporary. If you did not find parking in the free front row parking area, then you can easily catch a backside parking space ,and even this is not available then you can drop your car in the valet parking service that is provided.

Logma offers an indoor as well as an outdoor sitting arrangement , we selected an indoor table as it offers such a cozy and at the very same time very cool ambiance where we could feel the arabic modern yet classy design. The setting is very impressive and relaxing. The very hospitable team showed us a warm welcome with their traditional uniform giving you the full Arabic touch. The menu is well described and ingredients are well seen along with the posted picture which makes it very easy to choose dishes even without knowing them actually. The music played in the background is as well relaxing yet cool mixing arabic music with western sounds and beats.

We started the meal and ordered some appetizers such as Logma Fries crispy with Khaleeji spices and crisp herbs that have a great taste and feels like a biryani touch. You could never imagine the flavors of eating French Fries with this twist in your whole life. We couldn’t.

Personally, we liked the Samboosa beef and Samboosa cheese. These are delightfully served and mouth Watering, they as well easily can catch your hunger while waiting for the main course to be served. But careful here, if you eat too much you probably won’t make it to the mains! Quinoa salad is also yummy mixed with different herbs and dates that made it a sour sweet salad with a sweet taste because of the dates. Pomegranate mozzarella then served as it blends the taste of pomegranate, baby greens, yellow and red baby tomatoes with their own Logma dressing.

We ordered a wide variety of drinks and all were very refreshing and cool, One of the best Milk Shakes we had over here as well.The LOGMA SHAKE. And there is something different about this one for us, being mixed with dates, banana and honey. Also the Passion Of Arabia that have crispy passion fruits seeds with pineapple juice, and Atlants juice mixed with lychee, passion fruit, and lime. A must try!

The main course which were Logma Shrimp rice, suitable for seafood lovers, with mixed taste of biryani with crispy herbs besides the Logma chicken rice with brown crispy nuts and perfectly grilled meat.

Logma is serving sandwiches as well. We tried the Turkey Cheese and Pepper sandwich which was surely nothing less than a highlight in itself, as well we liked the chicken avocado sandwich that was so juicy and yummy.

At this point we were extremely full already from the nice and tasty food we had. But we were able to get ourselves to try the Lugaimat along with date syrup and with nutella and nuts, It was very light, fluffy and tasty, a perfect ending to the meal. At last we had tried the Chebab Katayef with crispy pancake and vanilla ice cream along with saffron cardamon syrup. Taste wise as well this was simply amazing. A cool and chilling way to finish our dinner we found in Emirati and Saudi coffee which was strong and pure and helps you to digest all the eaten food.

Overall Logma was an unexpected excellent experience with nice and delicious food along with an excellent hospitality service. Even if you are not into Arabic dishes, this will make you change your mind! Check out the pictures in the gallery below!

Reviewed: Boardwalk @ Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club

We passed by last night at Boardwalk which is located within the Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club. Being located directly at the Dubai Creek makes it almost needless to say that the location is stunning. Specially the outdoor seating is giving a great view on the Skyline and over the Dubai Creek. We had not had the luck of very clear weather, but still you could see Downtown Dubai and Burj Khalifa. Thanks to the outdoor AC units you can sit easily outside.

The menu contains of mainly Italian, Mediterranian and Seafood dishes which is matching quite well my taste. We went for a Bottle of still water, a Vanilla Milkshake and a Coke as drinks. On the food side we ordered the Fried Calamari as starter, a Margherita Pizza and a Lasagne Bolognese as main course. Complementary served was bread with a dip which was tasty.

The Fried Calamari are a pretty big portion and can easily be shared with tweo or three persons. They come with lemon and garlic dip which is a tasty combination. The Calamari where crispy and delicous. While still enjoying the ambiance and looks over the water the main courses arrived already. The Margherita Pizza was crispy and flavorful and well worth ordering. The Lasagne was perfect in taste and just mouthwatering.

Even if you just go for a few drinks Boardwalk is a perfect combination with the amazing views of this location and the really tasty dishes they serve. Value for money wise you are not paying more than in other places serving similiar cuisine. We ended up with a bill of 261AED which is well worth it in my opinion.  We will be back and the next time I will carry around a proper camera…

Reviewed: 82 American Diner, Motor City

Having spend the last few years before I left Germany to Kuwait almost every evening of the week in an American Diner in my Hometown this was something I have quite missed. A traditional looking Diner in 50s or 60s style that not only looks this way but as well has great Shakes and food (Sorry Johnny Rockets) is rare to find. I had not heard about the 82 American Diner previously, but when passing through Motor City the other night it caught my attention.

Today was no plan for dinner anyways, so we passed by in Motor City. Biggest fear I usually have over there is the parking, but luckily just around the corner is free visitors parking in the building, brilliant, that saves some stress driving in circles trying to find a parking.  Though the Diner has an outside seating area we found it is not the right time of the year to sit outside and hence decided to go in. I love the traditional benches and style of this place with the huge Neon sign lightning on the Wall. Surely this does not match everyone’s favor, but it fits mine.

Reviewed: BShawarma, Reem Island, Abu Dhabi

We had been on Reem Island’s Paragon Bay the other day and saw the Banner there for BShawarma. So we thought we just give it a try. The Banner does not give any location towards it so we had to ask people in order to find it. It is located on the outer Shops of the Paragon Bay on the back of the Geant Supermarket as we found out.

They have a quite big Menu over planty of Appetizers Shawarmas and even Pies, Salads , Desserts and Juices. We went for a simple Beef and Chicken Shawarma ans some Veggie Spring Rolls. Price wise the Shawarma’s come in at 10AED each which is really affordable, make it a meal and you pay 5AED more for really good fries and a drink on top.

The Chicken Shawarma was brilliant, I really liked it, it was tasty, flavoful and the bread used was superb. The Beef one was not really my taste as it had some sour incredients that just did not match my taste. But that is fine. The Spring Rolls had been average and nothing special, so for us an item to not reorder. We will surely go back if we are in that area and if it is only for the brilliant Chicken Shawarma

Reviewed: Stars & Bars, Yas Island – Abu Dhabi

The other night we went down to Yas Island to visit Stars & Bars at the Yas Marina. The location in itself is pretty nice located directly on the Marina with a , specially at night, amazing view on the Yas Viceroy Hotel.  We had sat inside as the humidity was pretty bad, but this is not a turn down. We chose to sit on the tables with the car seats as chairs which is pretty awesome and really comfortable.

Looking at the menu probably anybody could find something they like, a massive choice of starters, a very good selection of mains and deserts and almost more importantly a good choice of drinks.

We went for Chicken Fingers and the Crispy Calamari as starters and a Margherita Pizza and a Tenderloin as mains paired with a bottle of water and a Vanilla Milkshake.  It did not take long until the Chicken Fingers and Calamari turned up, the Crispy Calamari Rings came with an aioli sauce and as well some spicy Marinara, all was excellent and I really loved the Marinara in combination with the Calamari. The Chicken Fingers were average at its best and had no real taste unfortunately. Even my  5 years old turn them down and rather hit on the Pizza instead. This could surely be done better.

The Tenderloin , ordered well done, came with mashed potatoes and vegetables plus a mushroom sauce on top. The Tenderloin was perfectly well done and matched exactly my taste. The vegetables where tasty as well and the mashed potato was superb, for me a perfect dish.  The Margherita Pizza we ordered came with olives on top and looked already yummy. Taste wise it is certainly tasty with the dough being luckily not too soft. As well definitely something I can recommend.

Overall the taste experience was mixed with one starter being brilliant and one on average and both mains really good. The service was friendly and helpful and paid good attention. One thing that surprised me a bit negatively was the below standard condition of the toilets, this is not up to par with this otherwise really lovely location. We will nevertheless surely be back to try out some of the other options, and hopefully be able to sit outside when the weather is a bit more on our side.

Reviewed: Smart Brat , Kite Beach

Last night we passed by Kite Beach. Last time I had been there was basicaly when Doner & Gyros had opened up. Loads of things have changed ever since. Many food outlets have opened up over there. One of them is Smart Brat, a german style Bratwurst (Sausage) shop. What is different here than on a hot dog you might think? Well, You get a chicken sausage in a hot dog bread, but the sausage is german style and is really awesome. I am not sure wheater my favorite is the Smart Brat with Sauerkraut and BBQ Sauce or the Curry Wurst which is a cut sausage with fries and a stunning german sauce which you can choose in spicy or mild, I tried the mild one and loved it.

There is no big fuzz to make about it, it is a straight forward comfort food that is delicous. There is no seating available but around the Shop is a bit of a counter where you can eat at. The staff was very friendly and helfpul and the prices are on the higher end but the taste delivers the rightful high expectation set through the price. In the end this is still Dubai and nothing is on the same price like dishes are in any of their home countries, so who cares.

We loved it so much that I can’t wait to get back again and get more. I highly recommend to visit this outlet on Kite Beach, you will not regret it.

Reviewed: Tangerine, Bay Avenue -Business Bay

We had not been in the Bay Avenue in Business Bay since we moved away from there, passing by today we saw that way more shops and Restaurants are there than when we left back in beginning of 2014. One of the Restaurants, Tangerine, caught our attention so we thought why not try them out.

Tangerine is located on the Ground floor towards the Park side of the Bay Avenue. It is modern and chic styled and offers a classy ambiance. It offers dishes from different countries like Chinese, Thai, Indonesian and Malaysian cuisine. If you enjoy Far Eastern dishes there will be surely something for you around the big menu.  Prawn Crackers are served complimentary and are delicious. We went for Prawn Tempura’s which are crispy friend Prawns served with a Sweet Chilli sauce. These came pretty quickly had been really good, the Sweet Chilli Sauce was just a little bit spicy, just right for my taste.

As main courses we ordered the Beef in Black Pepper sauce paired with steamed rice and the Pad Thai Kung Sod. The Beef arrived first and the taste was perfect. Slight spicy as well, but in combination with the rice the taste was awesome. The Portion was served was huge and would have easily been big enough to share for two. The Pad Thai noodles were ordered with dried Shrimps and Prawns and where as well super tasty. As on the Beef before as well here the portion was huge and we ended up in a takeaway.

Value for money wise we paid 196AED for two persons which is in range. You would not walk out of other Restaurants offering the quality and taste with less. For us Tangerine was a very pleasant discovery and we will surely pass by again if head down the Bay Avenue.
