Give the traditional biryani a miss this Eid and celebrate modern Indian dishes at Mint Leaf of London. The finedining eatery at Emirates Financial Towers is serving a scrumptious three-course Eid menu featuring signature hits such as asparagus and paneer samosa, succulent adraki lamb chops, zesty kaffir-lime infused Fisherman’s Prawns, and dessert delights like rasmalai! The huge windows’ vista of DIFC’s dazzling lights mean you’ll top off your festive food with a festive mood. Dh280 per person, today until Monday (September 9-12). Call 04 706 0900 for reservations. Fireworks, food, shopping and games are the ingredients to a perfect family outing. Yas Marina is cooking up just that over the Eid weekend today and tomorrow (September 9-10) with a spellbinding fireworks show, a heritage tent for culture vultures with activities like basket-weaving, traditional Emirati games, and kids’ movies. Hungry for more? The dockside promenade’s restaurants from Lebanese to Rigid, boxy tablets have made us stretch our arm muscles, perform acrobatics for better viewing position or weight-train just holding them. With Lenovo’s sleek Yoga Tab 3 you can go back to being lazy and only exercise your grey cells. The limber tablet hangs to project videos from the in-built projector, stands or tilts (for reclined movie-watching), has 18-hour battery and AnyPen technology so conductive objects – ballpoint pens, graphite pencils – can be used as a pen and dirty fingers can’t stain the 10.1-inch screen. Did we mention the lovely faux-leather finish? Dh1,999, Emax.
