Al Maeda: Levantine and North African Cuisine

Finding a parking space in The Walk JBR sucks big time and the twenty dirham per hour in the paid mall parking is hefty while the chic hotel valet serves guest only. Surprisingly Al Maeda Arabic Restaurant and DoubleTree by Hilton The Walk has a complimentary self parking with ample spaces. Having said this, please note that Al Maeda offers its guest a valet service as well. Arriving at the venue, lovely and smiling ladies and gents greeted us and ushered to the terrace where we met the Food and Beverage Manager Angelikos who talk us through the property. Al Maeda and DoubleTree by Hilton is already at a premiere location. Al Maeda terrace is overlooking a breathtaking seaview and in front of it will soon rise the Dubai Eye, something like the London Eye but tree times larger than that, can you imagine?

Shayan Persian Restaurant Press and Bloggers Dinner Party

The last time I dine at Shayan Persian Restaurant was to  meet and greet a Professional Travel/Photography Blogger Laurence Norah . Only during my second visit for a Press and Bloggers dinner party hosted by Shayan I get to explore and adore the beauty of the rest of the restaurant, talk about ample seating with private nooks, elegant interiors, traditional music from a Santoor player and of course once again the taste of good authentic Persian food with some new addition.
