Bouchon Bakery

Looking for another great spot to have breakfast in Dubai? We went to the new Bouchon Bakery at The Beach Mall JBR the other day and our visit was more than just ordinary. Bouchon Bakery is quite simple to find in the center of the beach mall, you can't miss it. Once we arrived at the bakery we were greeted by friendly & very polite staff who then assisted us to our table, there was not one member of staff that wasn't smiling it was a nice welcome. Our waiter called Subrata who served us all morning, guided us through the menu and was super kind and helpful throughout our visit. You could see how well the staff were trained on customer service and on what the bakery has to offer their customers. It was nice to see managers walk up to peoples tables saying hello to every customer shaking their hands making their experience a memorable one, also asking customers how they are and is everything ok, as they did with us too. It's nice to see them treat all customer like this as its keeping that special relationship with customer that will also bring people back for more as well as their tasty/delicious fresh food. 
Now enough said about the service, let's tell you how delicious the food was. It was hard to choose from the menu as there was many mouthwatering options. Pastries are all fresh and prepared the same day and you could definitely tell how fresh they were once you had a bite. We just had to try the cooked breakfast, the scrambled eggs with potatoes and veal bacon it was fantastic! The food was fresh and well presented and our favourite pastries were the lemon tart and the chocolate croissant. 
They have a huge selection of pastries as you can see from our photos so we are sure they will have whatever you fancy.
 At least we have now got another favourite place to go for breakfast and also close to home. 

Thank you to everyone at Bouchon Bakery who made our visit a memorable one.

Sahara Grill Dubai


We checked out a restaurant in The Mall on Jumeirah road the other day called Sahara Grill.
Sahara Grill is originally established in London and now has a branch in Dubai. We received a warm welcome from the staff and taken to a table, the staff were lovely.
We had heard a lot about how good the chicken steak's were and the lamb chops but we wanted to try something different. 
For starters we ordered chicken wings and chicken tenders. The tenders were by far the best chicken tenders we have had in a very long time, we highly recommend you have this as a starter and the wings were mild spicy which we thought was just right for us.
Then for main we chose chicken pasta alfredo and chicken fajita, everything came to our table hot  both dishes were extremely tasty. Oh and FYI we didn't try the lamb chops but we have been told they are one of the best dishes on the menu, marinated in Sahara Grill's signature spices.
For dessert we weren't expecting much because of what we saw on zomato on peoples reviews that they only had a few options but little did we know that there was a traditional British dessert section, we both literally had the biggest smiles on our faces and laughed at each other because a dessert that we loved from the UK was on the menu. It was treacle sponge pudding with custard and sticky toffee pudding with custard and yes it is literally the best we have had in Dubai during the 13 years we've been here. If you haven't tried these desserts before you should definitely visit Sahara and find out for yourselves how amazing they are. We will be taking our parents this weekend as we told them how much we liked our experience at Sahara.
We can't forget how nice the staff were, our waiter was helpful, polite and very humble which you don't get a lot of honest service these days and you can generally tell he liked serving us, as most places the service almost seems robotic.

Overall we had a wonderful experience at Sahara Grill and we left wanting more. If you are looking to go somewhere new in Dubai for lunch or dinner then check out Sahara grill you will love it.

Tips & Toes Treatments

Tips and Toes Spa has always been a favourite of ours. The staff are friendly and polite, they always do a great job and put 100% in every job they do. And their treatments are the most relaxing, you get an excellent result as well. We visited the tips and toes spa in Barsha, it was our first time going to this branch and it was amazing, they had a salon, a nail spa and rooms for facials and massages. 
We both decided to get different treatments, we got one hair treatment and one facial. The hair treatment was the Kerastase oil spray which gets sprayed onto your scalp and then brushed through your hair. Kerastase gives your hair intense care for suppleness, strength and shine, you will notice a huge difference with your hair hours after the treatment.  
There are quite a few types of facials you can get, Jen tried the Glamtastic mini facial it was only 30 minutes but it still gives you a glowing and smoother result. Inside the facial room there was nature music being played in the background, there was a nice scent in the room and the facial itself was extremely relaxing. 
You could actually spend the whole day at this spa, you could get your nails done, then a massage and then get your hair done by the experts, it would be the perfect ladies day out. 
We would like to thank all the ladies at tips and toes for always making us feel welcomed and relaxed.
