JANE: 

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.

Homemade bread with 3 choices of butter. The middle one was a yummy mushroom butter.

Wine to complement the delicious taste of the food

Lobster/seafood bisque – Dubai style

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:

Those veggies were full of HOT, red peppers…

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.)
