DELICACIES AROUND TOWN
So I am reviving my "Foodie Havens" page by now adding images of the dishes I enjoyed in all these places. I would like to point out though that I'm not going to criticize any foodie place. Who am I to decide what is good or not, everyone's taste buds are different.. And if I can influence anyone in any slight, even teeny, tiny way, then I wouldn't want to spread negativity, and maybe cause even the slightest harm to a business and therefore someone involved. My conscience would haunt me forever! After all, I just want to spread the love of food :) So I'm only commenting on the nice, pleasant and yummy dishes I've had, and will leave my humble negative criticisms to myself. So having said all that, I now hope you enjoy this little section as much as I do. I'll keep it updated with all the new places I try out around town. Much love, D xx
Mezza House in Old Town:
I'm not someone who actually eats at a lot of Lebanese/Arabic restaurants, but the other day, I went for lunch with my sis and a friend at Mezza House, a restaurant specializing in "Levantine" cuisine. From Lebanese classics, to Jordanian and traditional Syrian dishes, I must admit reading the menu made me wonder why I don't eat or cook as much Arabic food as I should. These are a few of the memorable dishes I had, their special Mtabal was lovely with pomegranate seeds and beautifully caramelized onions. Also really enjoyed the fattoush (it's tough to find a good fattoush in restaurants, no matter how easy it is to make!). The Ras Asfour and the Kibbe with Sumac and Onions were delish as well, simple but with a twist.. It's making me hungry just writing about it!

Fire & Ice @ Raffles Hotel - What can I say, this place simply has the best burger in town.. Literally!! And the truffled potatoes were to die for.. As was their beautiful wine selection.. Delicious!
