EAT. PLAY. LOVE
A round-up of our favourite things to eat, play and love this week.
NAIL NATIONAL DAY
Show your love for the UAE by painting your talons in the national flag colours for the 43rd National Day next week. Choose from Glittering White, Fade Sparkling Black, Bottle Green Shine, or Ruby Red Shimmer from the Paese Glitter nail polish collection. It dries in 60 seconds, leaving you more time to celebrate. Dh39 per bottle, Paese stores across the UAE.
Enjoy National Day celebrations at The Parade Downtown Dubai. Soak up the atmosphere as floats, mascots, dancers and men on horseback parade along Mohammad Bin Rashid Boulevard. November 29 from 3-5pm. Register at www.mydowntowndubai for free entry.
SOHO SO GOOD
Soho Grill has added a new breakfast menu to its repertoire of burgers and steaks. It’s packed full of delicious treats from caramelised banana pancakes and bouncy waffles topped with strawberries and cream, to sticky French toast. We enjoyed a hearty plate of Eggs Benedict, but if you really want your belt to groan, try the SoHo Big Breakfast – we won’t spoil the surprise, but it is huge! Add a fresh fruit salad or a freshly squeezed juice to stop any guilt pangs. Available every day from 7am to 11am. Call 04 343 4007 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meat lovers know the frustration of ordering a steak and it arriving as tough as an old boot, or a tad too pink. Head to the newly opened Rib Room at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, Palm Jumeirah, for choice cuts including Wagyu grain-fed tenderloin and dry-aged grass-fed Irish beef cooked to perfection. The Brit-centric restaurant also offers a cheese board like no other (think Lincolnshire Poacher, Colston Bassett Blue, Wensleydale), desserts including sticky toffee pudding and even tasty veggie options, too. Dh600 per person for a three-course à la carte menu. Call 04 453 0444 or email email@example.com.
e just love this on-trend Armani Exchange timepiece from its men’s collection, but with bold, striking black and gold-tone plating, we think it would look sleek and fashion forward on any woman’s wrist, too. The intricately designed dial and three gold chronograph sub dials make for seriously stylish arm candy. Get it on your Christmas list. Dh1,330 at Paris Gallery stores across the UAE.
