LEVEE Café on La Mer Beach, Dubai

IMG_9764Dubai never stops improving and developing so last year the new area popped up, La Mer. The place is close to downtown and holds lots of restaurants, cafes, entertainments and beautiful long beach.  Super nice and fashionable, in fact, a great spot to take photos. I haven’t tried many restaurants there but I am absolutely in love with Levee Cafe. Wanted to try it for a very long time and once I did, keep coming back every week. The  style of their food is contemporary French. Sound like I am talking about an art… but their food it is done in a very stylish manner. Also, it tastes great without some crazy things, just simple dishes in a fashionable manner. For me, Levee Cafe is one of the best spots for a breakfast. There is a quiet ambiance, beautiful decor, stunning view, and delicious food.  So if you are living close to downtown, definitely go for a nice relaxing breakfast on the beach. Plus after you are done, you can get some tan, swim and chill with your friends.

Senara Grilled Seafood on the Island

Last week I discovered a wonderful restaurant Senara which is located in the Yacht Bay on Palm Jumeirah. Great place to have dinner with a group of friends or a date with a beloved one. The menu mainly contains seafood choices so it is a perfect place for me. In fact, this my favorite type of food. For a starter, I tried shrimps avocado salad, lobster roll, and smoked salmon. For the main course, I ordered seafood platter to share with half lobster, oysters, shrimps and grilled veggies on a side. All these dishes were super delicious and grilled in a perfect way. After the food, I also took a coffee with two desserts, one sticky pudding, and the other banoffee. The photos of each dish you can see below. I definitely recommend trying this amazing place, especially if you like grilled seafood. Personally, I think the location and food there are just fantastic.
