It may seem surprising but Christmas is widely celebrated here in Dubai, almost all establishments are adorned with festive decorations and Santa Claus make several appearance across the city.
For many Filipinos this is also the time to reunite with relatives who they have not seen for a long time and a special day to remember the birth of Jesus Christ. As with any celebration expect a traditional feast that would require one to spend a few days of food prep and whole day in the kitchen. You can skip all and just enjoy the night away by spending Christmas eve or lunch at Movenpick Hotel Jumeirah Lake Towers.
A few weeks back we attended the hotels tree lighting ceremony, listened to Nord Anglia International School Primary Carolers’, a visit from Santa and enjoyed an early Christmas buffet.
Christmas Buffet is hosted at Movenpick JLT’s NOSH restaurant, they sure know how to satisfy someone’s appetite for good food.
Entering the restaurant you are greeted by a wide array of beautiful desserts that taste really good too. Let this be a warning to talk to your kids to have some proper food first before getting on the sweets.
Honestly, I just kept coming back to appetizers which had a really good salad and seafood choices. It was a seafood lovers haven. Also a lot of choices for your picky eaters with crunchy selection of fish fingers and some mains.
