I’ve realized that my appetite for bread have grown increasingly the longer I stayed in Dubai which is good for me of course. I wanted to gain weight – so bread is a friend.
Cheese manakish of Al Reef Lebanese Bakery, is for me the best cheese bread ever! It is a white Arabic bread that is serve fresh and warm with cheese filling (mozzarella) made from wood-fired oven.
It’s so good when it is still warm you can see the cheese stretches when you bite. For only 6 dirhams my dinner is solved!
According to an Emirati friend who referred this bakery. Al Reef is the oldest and famous for it’s delicious Arabic bread and sweets.
The bakery is located in the same street of Karama Post Office. The shop beside it serves nice shawarmas too. What I like about the shop is the massive selection of Arabic sweets displayed on each side of the shop.

The only part of Abu Dhabi that I’ve been to is in Yas Island. The first time is when we went to Ferrari World with my cousins where I nearly died of heart attack after boarding the fastest roller coaster in the world!
Yas Island is one of the must-see destinations in Abu Dhabi. It is a massive place ideal for family that seeks leisure time. You will find amusement parks just like Ferrari world, Du Arena where big concert takes place, Yas Links where golfers can be found, Yas Marina circuit where F1 and Grand Prix are hosted and the recently opened massive waterpark the Yas Waterworld and etc.
Just a week ago we were together with the thirty thousand crowd who witnessed the legendary Rock N’ Roll band. The Rolling Stones! I am not much of a big fan but I’ve known them ever since and the thought of seeing and hearing them live makes the hair of the back of my neck stand.
Imagine they started playing and got famous the same era as The Beatles around 1964 and now it’s 2014 and they’re all still kicking ass on the stage which is totally exceptional.
These are some of the songs that the crowd have loved:
- Paint It Black
- Shine a Light
- Gimme Shelter

After a long day of work we have decided to visit an old fave restaurant. In the buzzing place of Karama sits Singapore Deli that serves Asian dishes mainly, Indonesian and Malaysian.
For starters we had Fried Tempe (Tofu). This was served hot with an amazing super spicy dip. We considered ordering Sambal Tempe but decided to choose the former. According to my partner it’s the spiciest food he had ever tried.
I have ordered Fried chicken with Kangkong and steamed rice (very similar to Filipino food). There’s a small dip on the side which I’m not familiar with but it tasted like fermented something with chili on it. It has a strong flavor although it really compliments the dish.
My partner ordered a Seafood Curry noodles. It has a light flavor just as what you have expected in a curry soup.
It’s nice to sit outside especially with the lovely weather we have now. Try it for yourself and share your experience! x
