At JFK, before we boarded the plane for Dubai, we ate TO DIE FOR crab cakes at The Palm, along with a delicious chicken salad and wine (Malbec). I’d highly recommend this restaurant. (It’s a chain. Check it outttt!!!)
Our first dinner in the Dubai hotel was a light and spicy lobster/seafood bisque, homemade breads, mushroom salad with a delectable dressing, and white wine to complement the menu.
I have never tasted such delicious dates in my life. I bought some for Roy, and he devoured the whole box in one sitting. The hummus and Syrian bread is also to die for. (Dubai)
Hotels serve buffets for breakfast with a phenomenal selection. The chefs must be preparing all night for these meals. Here is only a small selection of the choices offered at the Address Dubai Mall Hotel:

Back in the daily groove at last. Bought Trader Joe’s “Mid East Feast” for lunch today (falafels, hummus, tabouli, and pita bread) – just longing so much for the taste of the food that I had in Dubai. It was nasty nasty! Can never be duplicated. Gotta go back for the real deal! (The bread even tasted like cardboard.)
