Paellas and Tapas at Seville’s

Craving for a Spanish cuisine with a reasonable price?Seville (http://www.pyramidsrestaurantsatwafi.com/restaurants/sevilles.html)is the right place to book your next food trip. The restaurant is located in The Pyramids near Wafi Mall and Raffles Hotel. The place is an Egyptian inspired. You can see the pyramids,sphinx and a lot more. The details of the place will make you feel  like you are in Egypt.

When i reach to Seville’s, the ambiance is a little bit gloomy but the paintings and interior designs brings bright to the place. I was greeted with a smile by one of the staffs.Staffs are really accommodating and friendly.They always cater to your orders.While i was checking the menu i was shocked coz the food price is not that expensive at all compare to the one of the Spanish restaurant i visited 2 months ago near creek park.I had Paella which good for for 2 servings, chorizo and Rose Sangria. I bet you are now salivating.After the food was served.It is about time to taste everything i ordered and to my surprised the food tasted really good. They even have one of their Paellas on the menu with a rabbit meat. I didnt order that coz i feel like eating my own pet at home.I also learned that they have salsa tutorial every Tuesday for only 50aed with one drink for free. Isnt it a good deal already?I would really love to try it one day.The whole place not just Sivelle’s is a must visit place this winter. Can’t wait to take more professional photo of The Pyramid next time. I highly suggest to pay a visit on this place and let me know about your comments.

I sea food in Deira

Last night  i decided to dine in to the  most talked-about restaurant – Dampa Seafood Restaurant.

It’s located at the back side of Day to Day near Deira City Center, a 5 minute walk away from the Metro station. When i reached the restaurant. It was packed with a lot of people.So, we were on the 20th of the waiting list. It was hot outside and some people already lost their patience in waiting and opt to dine in the restaurants nearby. When our name were called, we were asked if it’s fine for us to sit outside since  the place was full and it was the only table available. Since, we didn’t  want to wait any longer ( did i mentioned that we waited for an hour for a table?),we took the table. We were given the menu by one of the friendly staffs.They have a very accommodating and friendly staffs by the way.

Its good for 3 people and it has 2 liters of drinks.You can choose to have 1 liter each of different mocktails. We had an Incredible Hulk which was infused with cucumber and lemon and Sex Appeal, an iced tea with peaches and lemon.

 Sex Appeal and Incredible Hulk 

The food was not that special. It was just a normal seafood restaurant that you can find anywhere. In my opinion, people are so eager to try it because it’s hard to find a seafood restaurant here in Dubai at a very affordable price. Don’t hate me for giving a 3 star out of 5. I grew up in a place where you can have fresh seafood anytime you want and seafood restaurants in my place is just everywhere and not to mention you can do live cooking.But for now i can settle on this till i get home. It was worth a try and I would still recommend it to people who want to indulge on the bounty of the sea.

Perfect week ender in Ajman

I have finally, decided to go outside of the Big City  and experience a quiet weekend.Living in Dubai is can be stressful and boring. All you see is almost the same everyday, the towering Burj Khalifa, the astonishing Atlantis in the Palm- yes, you’ll get used to it when you’re living in Dubai for almost 3 years. I decided to visit Ajman for the weekend. I booked a hotel which cost me AED 430. I opted to have a buffet breakfast. You’ll never know what surprises a place may bring so might as well start it off with a full breakfast. I took the usual Dubai taxi with the meter on. Running from Deira-Sharjah-Ajman, the fare had cost me 100aed plus a tip to the driver as a thank you for haggling with the traffic for me. I reached the hotel at night and went straight ahead to the reception. The lobby was packed with people, probably trying to unwind against the hustle and bustle of the city like me. I got my room key and headed to my room. I chose the higher floor for me to see how Ajman is from the top. I opened the door and saw that I booked a deluxe room, complete with a living room, dining area, a kitchen, 2 bathrooms and of course my room. It was fairly large but given that here in the UAE, people here take vacations with their families which will require more room especially for the kids. The first book that I picked-up was the room service menu. I ordered grilled chicken and waited 25 minutes for my meal to arrive while I was comfortably nestled on the couch.  Ding dong! Ah yes! Finally, food. I enjoyed my grilled chicken with plain rice and some steamed vegetables seasoned with salt and pepper in front of the television. Nothing fancy but very relaxing.I was mesmerized on how peaceful Ajman was and how liberated the people are compare to Dubai when I was thinking that I will be going in a place that is remote. I stayed for a night in Ramada Hotel and Suites Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed St. which is 15 minutes away from their private beach. They have a free shuttle every 15 minutes to the beach and they also have a free shuttle going to Dubai.Timings may change without notice so you need to verify to the reception.I also went China Mall which my colleague told me that it’s a must visit coz you will find everything you need for a cheaper price.I checked the place but unfortunately most of the shops are  closed as it’s Friday. I must go there again some other day to enjoy the beach and the sun. I still have 5 more emirates to visit and will keep you updated about my next travel experience.I suggest to visit the place and let me know what you think about it.

Holi Festival in Dubai

Holi is a spring festival, also known as the festival of colours or the festival of love. One of the most popular festivals in India. I was curious about it and decided to visit the park where they held the festival. I bought  my ticket in the entrance for 70aed.It’s a must (not really) that people celebrating the festival should wear white.Once you’re in the area, people will start throwing you colors (don’t worry it’s organic) or wiping colors on your face or on your shirt. Everyone is happy and having fun.I guess that’s the highlight of the festival
