This Restaurant is very popular in Philippines for their tag line "DELICIOUS CHICKEN UP TO THE BONE" ( I translated it in English) its like you cant stop until u started eating it thats why you can even the bone.
Yes it was TRUE..in philippines..but since UAE is like a CHICKEN capital wherein you can taste all kinds of ROASTED,FRIED,GRILLED chicken, there was nothing much special now.
I ate there and find the chicken not juicy enough to eat even the bone.
but to be fair,some of their menu taste the way it is.
I love the bottomless ice tea that they offer.
But they did not offer it here in UAE.
But whatever still proud for seeing MAXs here in Dubai
SFC: A place if you want to have a diffrent taste of a normal FRIED CHICKEN in any FOOD CHAIN OUTLET.
different in a sense that its tastes a little bit "Homey" its like I visited my friend and she is bragging about how good is her fried chicken.
An yes it was /is good the SFC fried chicken.
Not to add i feel the place is a bit cozy compare to other leading Fried Chicken Food chain outlet, its like me and my friend will have a nice "chat" since the crowd is not noisy,( the ambiance is like you are inside a real little bit formal restaurant.) that we never experience to any other Fried chicken food chain, (because we feel we need to rush for there will be some people will need our sit.)
Not to add also they have varieties of menu like burgers,nuggets and Pizza not just fried chicken so if ever we had enough too much of fried chicken we will go for some pizza ( and they have flavors that will suit to our filipino taste).
Price is lesser compared to that leading Fried Chicken food chain.
BOMBAY CHOWPATTY: just with a name itself definitely we all can say this is all about INDIAN FOOD...and yes it is!
Normally I see this place where a lot of Indians flocks together and eat, I call this the "STREET FOOD WAY " of indian and personally speaking "street food" are the best to any country that we will visit.
Im shy to be a part of the commotion since i will be the only filipina there and im alone.yesterday I met my friend who like indian food also and we decided to eat there.
I ordered my favorite pani puri and the other just like pani puri but with potatoes and yoghurt ( i always forgot that name of thaT) that is her first time to have it, and she loves it. then we ordered buttered chicken and of course biryani. awesome taste for me because normally Im having that good food taste if I will eat in some fine dine in indian place.
And again Im tasting india in every bite,from the butter nan....to the puris..to biryani..i havent tried the kebab yet for im totally full.
but one of these days definitely I will!
So next time if i cant join the flocks..i will just take away an order.
As we all knew organic stuffs is a little more pricey compared to non oranic one,bur here in SPINNEYS i dont feel that organic stuffs is is costly, maybe they dont have all the organic things that we need but we can find at least the basic things.
One more thing I love on them is the BAKERY side of them "WOWOWOW" for me because, they have all the diet bread that you can Imagine in a lesser price.
Im not always a "dieter" kind of a person..but when i wanted to eat and disregard any organic or diet bread they have the section where you can buy cooked food and their roasted chicken eventhough I used to buy it for only 5.95 AED then..now its 10 DHS but still i love it an theur hotdog roll.
Spinneys for me is a place you can Trust.
Ascot and Royal Ascot are almost the same they just added Royal for the new building. I can say STAFFS here should have a monthly seminar ON HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR JOB IN A HOTEL or ETIQUETTE/S ON HOTEL JOBS, staffs dont know how to deal with their guest and visitors guest most speacially those who are in the reception.Im saying this based on my personal experience.
1. I went there since my friend will checked in royal ascot hotel,I spoke to the reception of AScot hotel and she looks irritated when she told me she cannot find the name,and then i told her can I sit to the waiting area because she is coming today, she nodded without looking at me,and i was just 5 steps away on the reception , another hotel staffs asked the reception girl whom I am looking and then that staffs i heard saying"IS SHE SURE THAT IS THE NAME?'' am I stupid?( i silently asked myself)
but i chose not to react .
2. The next day me and my friend had a long chat for we havent seen each other for a long time, early morning like 7:30 am a hotel boy buzz our room giving us a key of a BMW car?and we say what?this is not ours,but the hotel boy insisted, we just called up the reception who said the same thing it should be delivered on that room later on they just mixed the last 2 numbers.( of course!) if that is not the caze everyone will be staying in Royal Ascot then the next day they will have BMW car ;)
In terms of food, when we ordered this grilled platter it was good also their burger (room delivery service from hotel).
The only good thing about here is this is located in the heart of Bur Dubai, it is very near to all for shopping from expensive to cheapest.
they are near TO AL FAHIDI (a crossed road away) and Burjuman ( Taxi or bus within 5 minutes you are there.)also near to Dubai museum if u want to see the Old Dubai.
For me they are black and white, ebony and ivory,
They are perfect combination Cinnabon and Seattles best coffee best. We all knew how delicious Cinnabon is...the soft bread when you bite it and while chewing you can taste the soft blend of cinnamon on this margarine based bread delicioso,to team up with Seattles coffee woww what a day for me. Life needs frosting and yes,its only Cinnabon can give it.
They also perform and how do they make the cinnabon, so we can all say Cinnabon is freshly baked.
The only thing i want them to is ,they should have a place at least outside of the mall and a little big and smoking is allowed. thats heaven to all of us Coffee lovers.
WAFI Shopping Mall:the most extravagant shopping mall i have ever seen here in Dubai, because most of the shops here are having extravagant PRICE..only here i saw TANK tops costing 650.00 dhs, I was like WHAT? I can buy that same too for more little price.though it is not crowded as just like some other shopping malls.
Extravagant place ,because it can take you to Egypt for a moment for the dazzling design of Raffles hotel,they are all good in the eyes and of course for taking pictures.
But if i will rate the the shopping mall experience is good,because eventhough i dont have money for buying expensive things/stuff they having ,being there makes me feel rich .If Cleopatra is only alive this is really the mall for her.
Truly authentic experience, to any TOURIST who wants to experience some INDIAN WAY thing, this MUMTAZ MAHAL in bur dubai is a great place to go.they have live people singing, they call it GHAZA i think, and then there will be some lady wearing saree will dance in between, its like the ambiance of the famous UMRAO JAAN, great ambiance and awesome food, i love their vegetable kebab. a glimpse of india you will feel once you visit this place, but of course visiting INDIA (country) is a better more experience.
If I dont need to write 140 characters i will describe GAP in one simple ‘’ phrase you will never get wrong in GAP’’ to all their ensembles,from jeans, they got jeans that can make u look like tall,or slim, from shirt that even how many washes still never change the classy design of their blouses,polos will always make u “CLASSY” and “ELEGANT” Im talking about the WHOLE THING ABOUT GAP. when GAP first opened here i can feel the diffrence of GAP from USA to GAP from UAE, ( my cousins from NY send me when i want some desigs) and GAp IS NOT YET IN uae) .IM A Little dissapointed,but now they are improving, i think Gap made in Guatemela is one the best choice when I buy.they have it already here
because GAP made in india,eygpt or turkey has no diffrence if you buy to some other shops like MAX or Splash.some people may not agree with this but try to check the materials there will be difference to where it is made.
I also consider GAP as the TRansformer in the fashion world because again i will say you will never get wrong when u mix and match the formal to a beach wear stufss.
This what i noticed,a lot of people wants to take picture outside the shop/boutique of any high end fashion stufs,and if you want to do it in one time GO TO BURJUMAN CENTER,to a middle class earner here in dubai most of the shops here are good for the eyes,and in the fashion world but not much in the pocket.when i first enter here i told myself IM SEEING ONLY those "BIG Brands name" in magazine now its right infront of my eyes, (but i dont have pixs outside of those shops .;) ). i will say again as a middleclass earner this is more good if you just wanted to feel the big brands like LV.HERMES, BEBE and etc .touching your hand, there some minimal shops where you can afford but maybe 25% only.
Good thing food shops are not costly a typical stores you will find in any typical mall where middclass earner hangs out.
NEW LOOK as the name goes new look,yes for me when u go inside new look shop and buy some definitely U GOT A "NEW LOOK'' they offer differrent kinds of clothing style from peculiar style, i-will only wear infront of my mirror- style,from classic to formal style and not to add their INSPIRE collections wherein "BIGGY GIRLS" can now be in the latest fashion as well just like how those skinny people enjoys the "FAD LOOK" and again the classic style..NEW LOOK HAVE it.
This like a more less price version of ZARA but more choices of styles..but what i love here is there jeans,they are goodin me their YES COLLECTION the green tab one,but they discontinue it, this is the downside of new look they dont keep a CLASSIC style that can be found only on their shop,it seems everything is fast moving...it is the customer will keep the style not them. i hope they will return that series of their YES jeans in green tab
People might think that RASASI is only for ARAB perfumes,being an ASIAN , arab perfumes is too much strong for me,but this is a myth, because RASASI now offers you-can -compare-to famous brands smell in a more less price,i found here the same smell for my fave brand of ''gucci envy" but they discontinue it,and another one the smell of "gucci envy me".( sorry i wont tell what is it heheheh go and smell it there) and you can try some other fresh smelling perfumes of them in a scent of cologne,and what is good about here the smell last longer than the usual "less price perfume"
if you want to have an "arab-smell perfume "they have some varieties which is not much strong smell.
If you want to shop for good perfume cheap prices but still classy and elegant.I strongly recommend
CHILIS when you are hungry and craving for some steak in a "hurry way" go to chilis, their taste never change,its not bad but for me i consider chilis as "FAST FOOD HOUSE FOR STEAK" theres nothing to look forward on the taste. its like the normal when u eat to any Mc donald shop or burger king. (they will have new menu but taste its still the same" )
Good thing they have a great ambiance, this what i loved here,sometimes its surpass the boring taste of their food whenever i eat here when im with a friend,its conducive to have a good ang long intellectual conversation.
but one more good thing about them they have this unlimited nacho thing for a cheap price, not to add their staffs are trained to smile and be nice to the customers (better than to "fast food" staffs who are so stiff while taking our orders) eventhough i know some customers are annoying already,
Chillis is something when you are craving for some steak taste and you dont know what is that taste ,you will go here for you know exactly what its taste from the first bite.
