WHAT’S TEAM FRIDAY UP TO?
Last weekend I realised how challenging it can be to plan a dinner when you have both die-hard carnivores and strict vegans to take care of. Luckily a friend suggested Grub Shack, an Indian restaurant in Healthcare City. The food is delicious and well presented. The carnivore ordered Goan staples – beef pan rolls, spicy batter-fried kingfish and chicken xacuti; the vegan went crazy over fiery red potatoes and okra stir fry. I nibbled through it all as I’d spotted a kulfi cart from Kulfilicious at the entrance. Outstanding! Mrinal Shekar, deputy editor Q: What’s the best thing you can do on a Monday night in Dubai? A: A pub quiz, of course! I’m a complete trivia fiend, and you’ll find me and my competitive spirit anywhere there’s a geography round. My latest find is the new quiz at the Westin’s Cook Hall gastro-pub. The duck ‘quackos’ are good, too. Natalie Long, editor
