Back in November we were very excited with the opening of CityWalk in Jumeirah 1, so conveniently located and giving us a heap of fab new shopping and dining opportunities. The outdoor lifestyle mall by Meraas Holding consists of a huge area complete with tree-lined streets, shops and a large open square perfect for meeting friends, relaxing, people watching and enjoying a meal overlooking the dancing fountains. There’s also a small shaded play area perfect for kiddos who love to climb and some pavement water jets which the minis love to run in and out of!
♥ Sapori di BiCE our new weekend family favorite. Italian dining in a beautiful setting, a bright open plan space that’s both casual and chic, you feel at home immediately. We enjoyed an array of hearty Italian dishes like Burrata e Bresaola and Insalata di pollo (a Waldorf salad with oven roasted chicken in a gorgeous rich and creamy mustard dressing.) For main course the classic Penne arrabbiata, Pollo allo spied (crispy roasted chicken) and Milanese di Pollo (breaded turkey, melted cheese and truffle…mmmmm!) hit the spot. Everything was really good and we definitely enjoyed our lovely lunch on the terrace. Another great feature is the pizza making corner for kids – such a fab idea. This a great way to spend a family and friends Saturday lunch…
♥ Holland & Barrett We love the variety of natural ethical beauty and Aromatherapy products available. This is also a great place to pick up a jar of Manuka honey, the “magic elixir” from New Zealand highly estimated for its antibacterial and therapeutic properties. Holland & Barrett also carries a large selection of vitamins and supplements.
♥ Caboodle where Luella spent some fun afternoon playing and getting pampered. After the Dubai Mall location, Caboodle in City Walk offers us a second fun, educational, and stimulating environment where children can learn through play and exploration.
♥ In The Hood by Suce another shopping experience from one of our favorite quirky boutique. Great for girly gifts and fashion treats.
♥ The Noodle House, no need to introduce this Dubai classic. With its 7th location opened now in CityWalk, The Noodle House is going from strength to strength. This Asian diner offers an array of dishes to satisfy all taste buds. We got to lunch on the new updated seafood menu, from Butter Prawns (king prawns with chill butter and fried curry leaves) to Nasi Goreng (shrimp fried rice with chicken and fried egg) and Steamed Sea Bass with lime dressing… No surprise no disappointment, as we know the concept well and it’s become a firm favourite.
