Ronda Locatelli’s Family Brunch, All’Italiana

We were invited to the launch of Ronda Locatelli’s Family Brunch All’Italiana. The newest Saturday brunch offer at Atlantis The Palm Dubai was hosted by Chef Giorgio Locatelli himself. The brunch gives homage to family mealtime which promises to bring the taste of Italy in a warm and inviting environment where kids under 11 yrs. eat for FREE. Here’s a sneak peak of what we had that relaxing Saturday afternoon. Shared starters includes Calamari, Pizzettes, Bresaola and Burrata. Mains includes Italian staples of handmade ravioli and vegetable lasagna. It was delicious and makes you feel that you are having it at the comfort of your home.   We were all quickly drawn to the Sea Bream and Braised Beef while the kids enjoyed every bite of grilled chicken and lamb. Parents can have a relaxing brunch because they prepared activities to keep the kids busy. The Jam Jar Dubai kept the kids busy with painting sessions and they get to bring home their own artwork afterwards. They also got to make their own wood fire pizza and got …

Atlantis the Palm Fun Factory Air Hockey

Great deal of unlimited fun for the Family!

We’re back from our 3 weeks vacation and the kids are bored. They miss our busy schedule back in the US. Temperature in Dubai ranges from 36C in the morning and 40C in the afternoon, so playing outdoor is not a good idea. We were invited to have an afternoon of indoor fun at the Atlantis Fun Factory that offers an unlimited arcade games from 3pm to 10pm daily until August 23.

Our Valentine’s Date at Yuan, Atlantis The Palm

The date at Yuan was a surprise for our eldest, Kuya V. I wanted to re-assure him that even if he’s a big brother now, he will always be Mama’s baby boy. Yuan restaurant has a kid dining policy of 4 years and up. The initial plan was for Kuya and I to go on date and Dad will spend the afternoon with LittleMiss. We asked Yuan’s reception if they would allow us to dine with our toddler, they agreed saying that the policy only applies for dinner. Our hostess led us to our table and handed us Yuan’s Yam Cha brunch menu, we are to order anything that we want on the menu.

Bliss at Atlantis The Palm, Dubai

My Bana had a conference at Atlantis The Palm last week and we didn’t let the opportunity pass to stay in one of the most expensive hotel here in Dubai for free. The Bana initially suggested that we stay only on the last night thinking that we would get bored (boredom = more expense) since he will be in the conference the whole day and can’t even join us for dinner. Checked-in at Tuesday to one of Deluxe Guest Rooms which had 2 queen size beds. Sadly I was not able to take any pictures of the room, you can view it here instead from the Atlantis website. Since it’s before Ramadan the hotel was fully booked as Arab families flew from other Middle East country to Dubai to enjoy some time with their family and probably go shopping as well since it’s DSS. Staying at Deluxe Room will cost AED850 with full access to Aquaventure, Lost Chambers and a free day pass at Kids Club. A family friend who works on the same company as …

A taste of Atlantis: The Burger Joint

In each of our Atlantis visit I always tell Coy that they should open a less intimidating restaurant. A casual place where guests can sit down and order a familiar dish without worrying if they are wearing the right clothes. The newly opened “the burger joint” might be the answer to my wish. I remember Chef Sasha saying that they wanted to bring something “American” in Atlantis which eventually led to the burger joint (tbj). Indeed a great addition to the family and nicely located near Aquaventure an area which is always crowded with guests. I absolutely love tbj’s interior with beautiful black and white photos and guests can even write on the white walls.tbj team prepared mini burgers for us to try on. I wasn’t too eager to try some burger since I still had a steak hungover from Seafire (and secretly wishing that I left the meat haven with a plate of yummy steaks mmmm…) but I’m looking forward to tasting their homemade style fries. I tried three kinds of burger “cheesy,” “rooster booster” …

A taste of Atlantis: Seafire Steakhouse & Bar

One Friday I found myself at Atlantis The Palm on a food safari from the steaks of Australia, burgers and fries of USA, cheese and desserts of France and finally pizza and truffles of Italia. A big THANK YOU to Sally of My Custard Pie for organizing the event. Entering the grand lobby we were welcomed by Amanda Chong, Public Relations and Tarik Kaddoumi, Manager/Online Marketing of Atlantis, Dubai. We first proceeded to Seafire Steakhouse and Bar restaurant and we were introduced to Chef Sasha Triemer, Executive Chef of Atlantis. I have always been intrigued on what Seafire has to offer, yes I do know it’s a steakhouse but is it like any other steakhouse? Behind those massive wood doors a warm interior welcomed us bunch of lovely ladies. Did you know that Atlantis have their own beef? Atlantis cattle are raised in Queensland, Australia. They don’t even marinate their steaks it’s all in the beef just a little bit of salt and pepper, a good grill temperature and viola beef loving goodness mate! The …
