A round-up of our favourite things to eat, play and love this week.
With seating in the terrace overlooking the iconic archshaped entrance to Mövenpick Hotel Ibn Battuta Gate, Dubai, you can bask in the sun while enjoying the Friday BBQ brunch at Moroc Lounge. Pile your plate high with mini beef steaks, Arabic mixed grill entrées of chicken kofta and shish tawook, along with prawn skewers and coriander salmon steak – delish. The crunchy grilled corn on the cob makes for a yummy buttery side dish. Just check to make sure most of it doesn’t end up between your teeth. From Dh130 per person, 12.30pm until 4pm. Call 04 444 5613 or email email@example.com to book a table.
Sivvi.com has produced cool celebrity printed moustache T-shirts featuring the likes of Will Smith, Kate Moss and Beyoncé in aid of Movember and in collaboration with Parisian prêt-à-porter T-shirt designer Eleven Paris. Fifteen per cent of the proceeds of each tee sold throughout the month of November will be donated to charity in aid of Movember and will be used for research and spreading awareness of prostate and testicular cancer. You still have time to do your bit. Dh215 at Sivvi.com.
OBJECT OF DESIRE
BLING IT ON!
Go high brow for the party season with Swarovski crystals from Bling Brow by Benefit – to give you sparkly eyebrows. Trust us, it’s the look of the moment and if you’re subtle, it’ll look amazing. This set comes complete with 52 self-adhesive crystals, and a pair of mini tweezers to apply. The dermatologist-tested tattoo glue crystals can be worn for three full days. Dh130 at Benefit Brow Bars at all Sephora stores across the UAE.
Popcorn’s not just for the movies, you know, and Garrett’s gourmet snack now comes in limited edition Hazelnut Caramel Crisp (available until December 31) just in time for the festive season. We love the new Dubai Skyline tin designed especially for UAE National Day – but not as much as its contents! Dh188 at Garrett Popcorn Shops, The Dubai Mall.
4 GRILLED TO PERFECTION
Treat yourself to a culinary adventure at the award-winning China Grill, The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina. We loved the king prawn kushiyaki, habanero and limecured sea scallops, and barbecued wild salmon – grilled just the way we like it. Dh300 per person for a threecourse à la carte menu. 6pm to 12pm, 1am at weekends. Call 04 399 4141.
