Duck Seekh Kabab with Plum & Chevre mousse
It was perfect marriage of succulent & subtly spiced meat and much of their enduring appeal lies in its simplicity. This scrumptious seekh kebab was moist and with nicely charred edges, and the addition of tangy & chilli-spiked flavors that complements the plum & chevre mousse. It’s nothing better for whetting the appetite than watching the Chefs flipping meats on the grill in their open grill station. Absolutely authentic & delicious!
Crisp greens with Avocado & Mango Salsa
This Veg dish could lure the carnivores permanently. The taste and texture of chaat like dish (more of a salad with a twist) was absolutely flawless. On other hand it was perfectly seasoned with well balanced flavors. The dry ice presentation & cold texture added a plus. Without any further ado, this was my most favorite dish from my lunch.
The main course spread makes this restaurant menu a pilgrimage spot to all curry lovers to devour their authentic curries, from velvety Dal Makhani to boldly flavored Chicken Chettinad curry and lusciously textured seared black cod with cilantro & parsley sauce accompanied with crispy butter naans and rice. The gunpower naan & black quinoa and pomegranate raita was much applauded dishes!
There’s saving the best until last, and then there are these showstopper desserts. There are few sights like Lotus mess more gratifying than a calorie-laden, drool-inducing, end to a meal. Inspired from the vary British Eton mess, this warmer version of lotus with lot of berries, ice cream and lotus caramel & biscuit is a sinful delight to eyes and palate, apparently the chef has nailed it.
Mint Leaf of London reveled few of the best blow out meals. With impeccable service and off the wall Indian food options , this spot is possibly one of the best eatery in town.
Did I mention they have an outstanding view of Dubai Skyline, possibly one of the best view.

The Noodle House is my ultimate go-to hot-spot eatery for fast and fresh Asian Soul Food with a whole lot of noodles. My lunch at their newly opened BurJuman center outlet was a delicious affair.
Starting off with my favorite dish from their menu – Curry Laksa! I have realized that there is something inherently satisfying about their bowl of laksa with its coconut creaminess,richness and spicy punch ! It’s my kind of soul food! If you’re a huge fan of this rich coconuty broth then The Noodle House is the number one spot to get your Laksa fix. In my opinion, the best thing about the laksa here is the perfectly balanced gravy with lots of flavorful oomph. The thick strands of rice noodles are firm, springy and not soggy either, and are conveniently cut so you can slurp them up with a spoon.
Everybody, I hear them say, their soft shell crab bao buns are the bomb and I couldn’t agree more! Spongy bao buns chocked with tempura battered soft-shell crab and mayonnaise – they are all yums!
Satay is highly sought after Asian street food. You can opt for chicken or beef satay at The Noodle House. I knew I had to try both of it! The sticks arrived glistening, with a slightly charred exterior, and each bite is full of flavour. The meat is tender, that has a melt-in-your-mouth texture. We enjoyed dipping the succulent meats into their homemade satay sauce, which complemented it so well. Simply delicious!
Coming to yet another impressive dish from the menu – Beef Short Rib! An intriguing plate of Orange glazed fall-off-the-bone short rib on firewalker rice with a lot of Umami oomph!
Overall its a pleasant lunch date at this Asian Soul food joint and definitely my go-to spot for the best Laksa in town.
