The UAE (like the rest of the world) is addicted to the notion of the next best thing, or the new and unique experience. Over the past few years we have seen culinary food gimmicks evolve to unprecedented levels! What began with the combining of ingredients, giving us the must have foodie item of 2013 ‘the cronut’ (half donut half croissant), has evolved into the downright bizarre – have you seen the chocolate sharwarma found in Dalma Mall?
Nowadays even the way in which our food is presented to us has to be innovative – yes we are looking at you Rogo’s, with your astounding rollercoaster delivery system. The novelty of these ideas shows no sign of letting up… So we here at Out & About UAE, were really intrigued with the concept of FrostBite – the creation of ice cream out of thin air!
Having recently moved to Reem Island, we here at Out & About UAE were very keen to try some of the culinary offerings close to home. So early one evening we headed into Boutik Mall to see what was on offer, and were pleasantly surprised to find the Asian inspired Smoking Doll right on our doorstep.
After a brief summer hiatus Out & About UAE is back! Kicking off with a new feature to the blog in the form of our very first restaurant review.
Pizza Express is a staple of the UK high street, so (as British expats) we were very excited to discover that the company were opening their very first branch in Abu Dhabi at the World Trade Centre Mall. The restaurant itself is located on the fifth floor of the mall and is currently the only place open on this level, but don’t let that put you off as the venue is simply stunning.
