Decadent – is the only word we can use to describe the opening event at La Patisserie Des Reves in Abu Dhabi’s Yas Mall.

Housed inside the prestigious Tryano department store, you wouldn’t even know that the quaint little patisserie even existed – unless you were in the know. The patisserie is currently one of Abu Dhabi’s best kept secrets – but we’re sure that’s about to change!

Salt has just celebrated its first birthday and although seemingly late to the game, we recently enjoyed our very first visit to this food truck phenomenon.

Salt became the talk of the UAE last year with its clever social media campaign which adopted the hashtag #FindSalt. The concept involved a travelling food truck that would reveal its location via photographic posts on Instagram. Thus encouraging customers to come and find them at secret locations throughout the Emirates. This clever marketing strategy worked exceptionally well, because nothing liked this had been attempted in the region before and it created such a hype that people would literally queue for hours to indulge in their signature burgers

Lets just get one thing out of the way – we here at Out & About UAE absolutely love a good Friday brunch!

Brunch is a pastime that we don’t really have in the United Kingdom. So we were super excited to discover the all you can eat/all you can drink mayhem of this legendary UAE tradition upon our arrival on these shores. Having worked our way through a fair number of these brunches over the past two years, we are calling it now… Olea at the St. Regis Saadiyat currently has the best Friday brunch in the capital!
