The Yard in Last Exit Al Khawaneej: Of Love Locks and Food Trucks

In the search for trendy and romantic destinations in the city, Ed and I headed to Al Khawaneej to see the much talked about The Yard and Last Exit D89 during the weekend. This new development is situated on the outskirts, but in spite of being away from the metro line, it became a famous hang out spot. People are primarily drawn to it because it is where Dubai's first ever love lock bridge is located.

Tailgate Brunch at TRYP by Wyndham Dubai

Weekends in Dubai call for lavish Friday Brunches in hotels! I do love to dress up for this occasion, but more often than not, I would rather ditch the fancy dress and high heels for a comfy get-up! Hence, the Tailgate Brunch - a laid back bbq brunch - at TRYP by Wyndham immediately caught my attention.

Seafood Night in Mercure Barsha Heights

When you're welcomed to a restaurant by a harmless-looking pirate, you know you're in for a treat!

Ed and I were caught by surprise when Captain Jack Sparrow - I mean, a staff dressed in a pirate costume - greeted us at the entrance door of Day & Night restaurant in Mercure Dubai Hotel in Barsha Heights.

Wholesome Breakfast at Sophie's Cafe

Previously located miles away from where I live, Sophie's Cafe is the famous breakfast spot that I have been wanting to visit yet never had the chance to! Thankfully, they shifted from Palm Jumeirah to Barsha Heights recently! Still a long journey from home, but at least conveniently accessible by metro!

So, a couple of weeks ago, my friend Annie and I scheduled a breakfast date -slash- catch up sesh in Sophie's!

Seafood Feast in Paluto Restaurant by Chef Boy Logro

For a couple of weeks now, I have been raving about Paluto Restaurant by Chef Boy Logro on social media. Ed and I were so impressed that it became our lunch venue for two consecutive weekends! I constantly shared and raved about our dining experiences to the point that some people thought I was paid to promote it! Hahah! 

But I bet people who really know me understands the situation. I love seafood so much that I go craaaazy every time there is a new and unique seafood restaurant in Dubai!

Just in case you haven't heard about Paluto - Dubai's newest foodie hotspot, let me introduce it to you!

#LadyAsks: Where do you take your family and friends when they visit Dubai?

Living in Dubai for 10 years, Ed and I feel ecstatic whenever a family member or a friend decides to visit us. We take them to our favorite spots, to some are hidden gems, and to the city's world-famous structures! We want them to have the experience to remember! And although it's subjective, we always hope that they would love Dubai as much as we do.

Ed and I do love to play tour guides to our visiting loved ones. But given that Dubai is a fast growing city (There's always a new place to visit!), we wouldn't consider ourselves as experts. Oftentimes, we crowdsource, read blogs, and search on Instagram.

And so, I asked some of the Filipino Bloggers in Dubai... 

"Where do you take your family and friends when they visit?" 

Here are their answers!
