Agemono Japanese-Filipino Restaurant | Dubai

One of our favourite Japanese restaurant is Agemono which is located at Al Attar Shopping Mall in Karama. It is an asian cuisine restaurant serving varieties of Japanese-Filipino dishes.

Aside from individual menu they also offer buffet where you can enjoy eat-all-you-can at a good value. A stir-fry section is the best part where you can choose your own ingredients and someone will cook it for you. They serve maki, stir-fry noodles, tempura, Filipino dish favourites and of course the famous sushi. Here’s their menu from Zomato.

Below is a Chefs Bento that costs 52 dirhams with:

  • grilled hammour fillet
  • miso soup
  • crispy tuna roll 4 pcs
  • tuna sashimi 3 pcs
  • salmon sash 3 pcs
  • prawn temp 2 pcs
  • japanese steamed rice

Oh and don’t forget their bottomless iced tea – reminds me of home. It perfectly compliments their scrumptious food.

I noticed some Filipinos flocked to the place as if giving themselves a treat after a hard days work.

The restaurant is full packed especially weekends and some will be on queue because the shop can’t accommodate more than 30 persons. Hopefully they will think of expanding the area soon for customers better experience. I saw some photos hanging on the wall of Filipino actors and actresses who visited the shop makes me think that they have done quite very well on their job – it means business is good.

We were given a complimentary dessert from our last visit. I say they really know how to value customers. Kudos to Agemono!

Their branches are in Al Quoz, Satwa, Al Karama and International City. Here’s the complete address of the four branches.

Nothing beats the convenience and easy access to our weekend breakfast nook at Fiesta Cafe. Since the weather is turning a bit warmer these days we opt to dine in a walking distance place.

I love the al fresco setting of Fiesta Cafe. The cafe is just the same building as Spinneys and has indoor and outdoor dining areas. Beside it are McDonalds and Max Fried Chicken Restaurant.

The chairs are soft and comfy and the sun brights up the whole place that makes you appreciate mornings. Boyfriend doesn’t normally like mornings but with the idea of having yummy breakfast served in front of us makes him want to wake up.
Aside from breakfast they offer gourmet selections and other menu. Which you can find here.

The amount served per meal is just the right portion for me and it’s very cheap! Their coffee is 10 dirhams but you can ask for refills which is very good.

Last week we had our breakfast there and we noticed that they forgot to charge us for the two coffee. We asked the staff and their store manager approached us and said that there’s no need to pay for it. We thank him with a big smile on our faces. We are so grateful for the complimentary. He probably noticed us frequently visiting the cafe.

I say businesses should always be like that. Just a small thing can make a huge difference in gaining loyal customers. It’s not about high sales but it’s how you value your customers and that gives a good impression that will keep them coming back.

Expect a loyal customer from us Fiesta Cafe.

Tony Roma’s Restaurant | Sheikh Zayed Road

Once upon a lazy Saturday, dearest boyfriend realises that he has been sulking for hours with his laptop on until finally decided to go out and do something productive. Coffee shop hopping is the first thing to pop up on our mind.

I’ve been wanting to visit this cute little coffee shop somewhere in DIFC but we end up stopping by at World Trade Center Station where the wander begun. We were strolling from Dubai side which is the opposite of Crowne Plaza. A bit lost and uncertain to where we are heading we found an interesting shortcut tunnel which is an access to cross the huge road of Sheikh Zayed to the other side. It’s like a wee adventure, discovering a shortcut tunnel.

After we reached the end, we are then facing Crown Plaza Hotel, while tiling my head to the left my breath was caught up by the scenic view of the towers piled up on each side of the longest road in Dubai. City lights brlliantly shining and feasts my eyes. Such a wonderful feeling to see this remarkable man made toy-look-a-like .

On our way, we spotted some Indians filming along the side of the road. Being nosy we hang out a bit and suddenly realising that we needed to get food.

So the story ends with food. We went to try out Tony Romas. A steak house diner, same building as Sahara Tower. I have noticed this one many times while passing SZR but have never had the chance to try it until that night. Tony Romas are famous for grills, chicken, steak, seafood and burgers, more of like American diner.

They welcomed us with complimentary chips with salsa dip sauce.

The portions are really big and are of good quality and for that we are solved. It doesn’t require us to order antipasti or dessert. Excellent service as well as the staff being so accommodating. We will definitely go back and will highly recommend this one. The price isn’t too bad as the food is reasonably worth the try.
