A cold night in Melbourne reminds us why we are lucky to be heading to the northern hemisphere for another adventure. Our A380 leaves a bit later than the scheduled 22:55 but we are soon fed supper and making our attempts to get comfortable and get some sleep. 695 more words

Have a walk with me through EATALY Dubai...

Discovering Eataly in the Dubai Mall (Downtown Dubai) was a nice surprise. I didn’t want to put up my hopes too high, after having been at Eataly New York. But no, I was impressed!

When you enter, you bump into The Nutella Counter, where they make fresh big pancakes and other Nutella inspired treats. This one definitely got my attention. In Belgium we are raised on Nutella!

The place is huge with many counters of different Italian foods. Such as, meat, fish, fresh pasta, pannini, gelato, chocolate, patisserie, bread, pizza and more. The easy part is, you don’t have to decide straight away what to have. A smiley person will seat you and yes…. here, there are many proper tables with seats (not like in New York, where they make you stand up!). The menu will cover the food of all the different counters, which makes it much easier to make your choice. All the food will be brought approximately at the same time, no matter which counter you order from. Important if you feel like eating together!

It is definitely a good place for a cheap lunch or dinner, knowing Dubai prices. You usually spend quite a bit of money for a good quality meal. One meal with soft drinks and coffee at Eataly was 100 AED (20 Euro).

The offer on Italian products got my attention, especially the choice in olive oil, including truffle oil, Balsamic vinegar, not to mention all the different kinds of unrefined salt, from all over the world!

I do have to admit…The one thing I missed was a nice glass of Pinot Grigio.

Easily, I could have spent my whole afternoon eating and shopping…. luckily we don’t live on walking distance!
