The Noodle House

My latest food trip is a taste of Thailand. I've heard a lot about good food in The Noodle House and I have been bothering Far-ouT to take me to the place every opportunity I had. So once a upon a time, my chance was right before my eyes and I grabbed it. You know, Carpe Diem! Hahaha!
And so here we are in one of their branches in Burjuman. They only have a small area in this mall. When we came, we only waited for a few seconds and luckily had our table from one of the customers who were already leaving during our conversation with the receptionist.
I find the plate setting cute. Just a simple spoon and fork and chopsticks wrapped in the table napkin. Neat!

As you know, this is our first time to try The Noodle House so we really don't know what is happening until we called the server and was informed that we need to tick our order from this list.

See, another first. Isn't cute?

I am seeing a lot of this kind of set-up lately from most of the restaurants, where the kitchen are visible to the customers. It just show the hygiene and cleanliness of their place.

These are the condiments.

I ordered one of their dimsum, shrimp siew mai (Dhs 25/4pcs.). 

Its new from their menu - I just find it soggy though and had too much taste of the wrapper instead of the shrimp, maybe this is better of as fried.

This is the Crispy chicken with plum sauce (Dhs 54.00)

I don't find the chicken crispy enough and the presentation was quite plain and boring.

But the taste was A-Ok, more on the sweet side of a dish.

This is their house favorite - Roasted Duck (Dhs 45/Quarter). You may also order for half and whole serving.

Its my first time to taste a duck and its really something new,

By the way, you wrap the duck in this white wrapper.

I wasn't impressed with my first bite considering I had a lot of raves about it. But after several more bites, I appreciated the taste already.

Far-ouT ordered the Shanghai noodles with beef tenderloin from their Wok Fried Noodles

You know what? I actually thought that The Noodle House has lots of soup noodles to offer my mistake but they only have like 3 dishes from the wet noodles and soup.

Nevertheless, I love the taste of it.

We order my mini-ME her own meal from their kids menu. I like this better that the Crispy chicken with plum sauce actually and I mistakenly thought this was that menu until the server brough my order.

I would still recommend you to try The Noodle House - they have several branches
Jumeirah Emirates Towers, Souk Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai International Financial Centre, Gloria Hotel - Dubai Media City, The Dubai Mall

All the best (get a better view by clicking on the photos),

The Lime Tree

I don't know how to start with my new entry. This is just one of the days when I am thinking if I should blog or not and just delay it till next week again. I don't want to pile up with all the photos and late entries so here I am just trying to blog away while my mini ME and Far-ouT is taking out the Christmas tree. Anyway, I just want to share with you my latest food trip with my colleagues. The place is one laid back setting along Jumeirah Beach Road in Jumeirah 1.

I like their napkins

Menu is written on the wall.

Here are their food choices

We have chosen the Roast Chicken, Rice, Lentils, & Crispy onions with lemon tahini dressing. Imagine how long to order just one from the list of menu. hehehe.

Another one is the Grilled Ambergin and Halonmi Salad with Promegranate dressing

This is yummy - Roasted tomato & Basil Risotto Fritters with Mozzarella & Pesto served with sour cream


Each order is good for 1 serving only as they serve small portion unless of course you eat so little.


 Refreshing Drinks

Their carrot cake is to die for.

If you are looking for a healthy alternative visit the Lime Tree.
All the best,

End of Thinking Capacity (etc.)

I am glad the summer is almost over. You can now feel the cold wind blows of winter. The changing of the season made my mini ME a little bit sick. Fever, cold and cough, hopefully she'll get to it again soon. She already missed some lessons in School.
This is also the season to start the idle body at work. Although, I lack trainings this year, my colleagues and I recently joined the charity run, Dubai Women's marathon 2012 for 5K run. I am all muscle sore at the moment but I wouldn't miss that one for the world. Its just feel so great to participate an event with a cause.
I am inspired once again to do some exercising, I prefer something like swimming though, running is just making me thin than I already am and that's not good.
By the way, I just want to share with you my recent buys which is really cute. Hahaha!

Its a Hello Kitty bag! Remember my post about The Bag, the design of the Kitty bag was the same so I immediately feel in love with it. Paired with my Enzo Aglioni black shoes. Very nice combination indeed.

There were a few more stress buster simple events in the office that really made it more enjoyable.

The Breast Cancer Pink Awareness Day where we participated by wearing something pink in the office.

and I did a little mini-mouse costume for our Halloween day celebration. I borrowed my mini ME's headress.

Some made a career out of it and some were improvised props

A nice photo ops to end our COB

Kempinski Hotel Ajman

When I said Danat Jebel Dhanna was so far my best hotel, I still stand on my opinion even after experiencing the grand hotel of Ajman with Kempinski Hotel Ajman. The service is far more satisfactory for me. With this hotel, we were greeted with a serious type of receptionist. well, maybe that's how they should be, I think.

Nevertheless, when it comes to elegance, both will be on my top list.

 Hello, beauty.

Hi Bathroom

We were given a nice balcony overlooking the beach

Of course, there is only one place where we'll spent the rest of the afternoon. By the pool.

There is also a mini bar from the far end of the area.

This is the way to the beach

Where we spent the rest of the afternoon in the sand

Oh by the way, the promo this time included dinner aside from the usual bed and breakfast.

Both were enjoyed in Cafe Kranzler

So let me tour you on the hotel areas.

Although Jabal Danat Dhanna offers many amenities than Kempinski Hotel Ajman, I must say its truly one luxurious hotel


Summer is almost over, I wonder what would be on my next list.
