MY IDEA OF A PERFECT V-DAY
My ideal Valentine’s Day is as old-school as it can get - gorging on nachos and popcorn during our movie date, followed by a drive on Jumeirah Road sipping on milkshakes and coffee!
3 MUST-VIST RESTAURANTS
Masti Cocktails & Cuisine, La Mer
Dubai’s current talk-of-the-town Masti Cocktails & Cuisine located in La Mer strikes the perfect balance between traditional and modern Indian cuisine. Serving an Indian-inspired “global menu” consisting of fusion dishes from Butter Chicken Pizza to Keema Popsicles, Masti also happens to be one of the first operational licensed venues at La Mer. Offering both indoor & al fresco dining, Masti in La Mer is currently one of the most happening restaurants to enjoy Valentine’s Day!
I recommend: Pulled Tandoori Chicken Bao.
Previously a 3-level art gallery, BB Social Dining has recently been one of the most discussed restaurants in the DIFC district. Capitalizing on the ongoing trend of communal dining and sharing concepts, BB’s exciting mix of Arabic and Asian dishes served in a comfortable, casual ambience makes it a perfect contender for a relaxed Valentine’s Day dinner.
I recommended: Harissa Lamb
101 Dining Lounge & Bar, One&Only The Palm
Arguably the most romantic restaurant in Dubai, 101 Dining Lounge is the closest you can get to Maldives without actually going there! Set against Dubai Marina’s picturesque skyline, this Mediterranean restaurant & lounge serves fresh seafood and grills alongside tapas and bar snacks. Tip: Start your evening with drinks at Jetty Lounge in One&Only Royal Mirage, followed by a complimentary boat ride to 101 Dining Lounge & Bar for dinner and dessert!
