EASY ORANGE CHOCOLATE MOUSSE

April 29 2017
Chocolate Mousse

Those who can’t bake, eat the cake. That’s my life motto. I invited one of my fav foodie personalities, Gerald Tan of Boulangerry over to teach me how to make a no-bake dessert to add to my easy entertaining repertoire. But what really happened was that Gerald did all the baking and filming while I sat […]

Sushi Bento Express Lunch Cover

If you’re one of those people that suddenly get hunger pangs at 11am and your lunchbox sandwich just is not cutting it, W Doha’s Spice Market Sushi Bento Express Lunch is the place to go for fresh, quick, and beautiful meal that won’t send you to a post-lunch comma at work. Much to my dismay, […]

A FAMILY VALENTINE’S BREAKFAST

February 12 2017
Family Valentines Breakfast

Last Friday, I created a special family Valentine’s breakfast to celebrate our first Valentines as a family. Those who have been following me on Instagram will know that we take our Friday brunch pretty seriously. Since Naomi still doesn’t get the concept of sleeping in during the weekends, we are all up bright and early even […]

HAKKASAN CELEBRATES CHINESE NEW YEAR

Hakkasan Chinese New Year

Hakkasan was crowing in victory as they wowed guests with their decadent Chinese New Year signature menu. My romantic relationship with my husband has been on the snooze button ever since we had a baby. Although, we’ve enjoyed cozy nights at home, there’s really nothing exciting about binge watching Netflix in our pajamas and sharing […]

Nobu restaurant at the Four Seasons Hotel Doha is one of the restaurants I reserved only for special occasions when great food and some bubbly are in order. It’s lively, sexy and the food is always fantastic. But fast forward many special occasions post baby, my husband and I couldn’t manage to sneak away for […]

WAGAMAMA’S NEW KAIZEN CONCEPT

November 27 2016
Wagamama Qatar Kaizen

Wagamama launched Kaizen concept in Qatar, which is a Japanese word for ‘Good Change’. As someone who is pretty loyal to their fried chicken katsu dish, I was reluctant to this change, but sometimes, change can be good. In this instance, if change means improvement in dishes and services, I’m all on board. Intrigued about […]

TASTE OF HAKKASAN

“Do you want to go to Hakkasan for brunch?” My husband gave me a confused look and said, “Chinese for brunch?” Let me explain. Chinese cuisine is not our typical brunch affair. Our idea of brunch is a breakfast introduction of let’s say poached eggs or waffles, then continuing with a classic roast with potatoes, […]

I rarely got out for coffee in Doha, not that I have an aversion to coffee but, because I could never find a good one. Serving burned coffee in lava temperature seems to be the norm here, so when got invited to the art of coffee-making at Jones The Grocer, I jumped at the opportunity to […]

Vietnam Travel Diary-cover

I take my food research pretty seriously when we travel. Equipped with a long list of restaurants and food to try, we never face a problem of desperately looking for a place to eat. Happy tummy all the time! ‘Go where the locals eat’ is my philosophy to food travel. If you see a long […]
