I’m still alive.

I know it has been a little sparse on the postings of late but I am still here and I am still alive. I’ve been struggling the last few weeks with food in general – eating it, cooking it, being remotely interested in it. Nothing is inspiring me at the moment and I have been…

A well rounded local for the likes of JBR

A great little local bar called Ten Street; a Canadian inspired, laid back get away that has replaced the once popular Mai Tai Lounge. With graffitied walls, pool tables and a private karaoke room this almost sports bar offers so much more.

Why I am so over buffets

Buffets, the all you can eat and drink deals we know and love – more so if you live in Dubai, because after all, it’s a way of life – but I am so over them. Why you may ask? Well there are a few reasons: Starting with the obvious, food wastage. This is not…

Q&As About Juicing

But what about your protein? Protein does not only come from animal products, in fact most vegetables have the same, if not more protein than most meats. In short it comes from the avocados, broccoli, kale and spinach as well as most of the other vegetables that go into the juices. Aren’t you worried about…

Rounding the Last Corner

As we approach the final stretch of the Ramadan Juice Challenge (I promise that’s the last racing pun) I thought I would just share a little about how it has gone. We’re on day 24 now and while I’m not really struggling the excitement of getting back in the kitchen is palpable. I miss cooking…

Weslodge

Make way for the bearded and bespectacled gentry of Toronto as Weslodge Saloon opens its famed yellow door in Dubai.

The Whys of Middle Eats

As I approach the two year mark of Middle Eats I thought I would get a little deep and share my reasons for creating the blog in the first place. It’s not a great story, actually it’s quite sad, but I’ll share it anyway – if you want to read it then carry on, if not,…

Nestled in the heart of DIFC this hole in the wall style hangout brings something a little edgier to the glitterati stylings of the financial sector. Oozing the very essence of TriBeCa in all the best ways possible. With bathrooms clad in shirtless, godly, tattooed and bearded men (the ladies at least) and moody low…

Ramadan Juice Challenge So Far

So we are 17 days in and honestly, it’s not that bad. I know I’ve been a bit lax on the vlogging but in all honestly I find it really difficult and much more stressful than it should be. I’m not comfortable with myself in front of the camera so for the time being you’ll…
