Breakfast: Le Pain Quotiden

29 Nov

With a frame of mind of having some sandwiches for breakfast, me and Shruti entered Dubai Mall. We  ended up having some eggs.

Being the lazy combo we’ve been lately, we decided to try PQ aka ‘Le Pain Quotiden’ as it was right next to the parking entrance to where our cars were parked. The restaurants decent decor helped sway our decision to eat there.

The Social Network

17 Nov

Based on the book ‘The Accidental Billionaire‘ written by Ben Mezrich about the founding of facebook. The story revolves around how Mark Zuckerberg and Eduardo Saverin launched thefacbook.com that was later renamed to facebook.com. About the lawsuit between them and another lawsuit with Cameron & Tyler Winklevoss and Divya Narendra.

Jesse Eisenberg (playing Mark Zuckerberg) and Andrew Garfield (playing Eduardu Saverin) do a fantastic job making the lead characters believable in ever possible way. They complimented each other and the chemistry they oozed on the big screen was enjoyable to watch. Continue reading

Breakfast: Urban Tadka

15 Nov

Winter is still busy being somewhere else which means Dubai is still hot and hazy. This inevitably forces me and Shuti to shoot cityscapes early in the morning to get decent results. Early morning means breakfast which unfortunately isn’t well catered to in Dubai especially on Friday mornings. Our choices are pretty limited to Ravi, Karachi darbar or something similar. Not the healthiest of choices but worth an indulge once in a while. And then Shruti swooped in and recommended Urban Tadka. Situated in Karama (location map), it serves the best Vada Pav I’ve had in the UAE or the middle east by a far shot. I’ve ordered it every single time I’ve been there i.e. I’ve yet to taste anything else on their menu. Best part is, it’s value for money which puts this on our highly recommended list (at least for their Vada Pav for now). Oddly they’ve stopped serving Vada pav for breakfast recently but we still managed to order 4 as SJ can be quite persuasive.
