Many people think of Dubai as a super unique and developed place– but what they may not know is that it’s also beautiful. The architecture is phenomenal. Most of the towers are designed one-of-a-kind, and some even seem to defy physics. They are truly pushing the limits on architecture and design, in the most intriguing way.
In fact, you could spend a whole day just checking out all the unique towers Dubai has to offer. But what would be even better than that… is checking them out at night. As the sun begins to fade away, Dubai’s skyline comes alive. Buildings light up– a multitude of colored lights dance around the towers, the city: becoming, not tacky, but rather elegant.
As you could read in my previous post, dinners in Dubai don’t come up short. Out of all of the meals we ate, only one of them proved to be underwhelming, (and in all fairness it was probably a decent meal, just out shined by the other fantastic meals we had.) I’ve always been somewhat of a buffet-hater. This is partially because of the scaring experiences at unhealthy and unsanitary buffets after swim meets or on road trips. These various buffet restaurants cover the United States and come in all shapes and forms, but they most likely rhyme with ‘Colden Gorral.’ This previous conception of buffets was thrown out the window, (of probably a very tall tower,) while visiting Dubai. Buffets in Dubai are luxurious and pristine. Dishes are prepared in elegant and thoughtful ways as if they were being delivered to the tables. Not only are they stunning to look at, you will also be taken back by the options. You can find anything from lobster tails to lamb soup– sushi bars to cheese tables, and so on. The most impressive station at all of these buffets never failed to be the dessert tables– lined with cakes, mousses, indian sweets, and of course: chocolate fountains.
Another great thing about dining in Dubai is that you have every world cuisine at your fingertips. In fact, I had the best mexican food I have ever had at the restaurant, Maya. It was so good, Dad and I returned for a second time on my last night in Dubai. Unfortunately we filled up on the Maya Nachos and Tequila Chipotle Prawns we were too stuffed to eat their amazing churros. Next time I suppose…
I will admit, Dubai spoiled me. For those 10 days I became accustom to delicious world cuisine. Just as I was reminded of how much I love the sun and warmth, I was reminded of all of the great foods I love. And now I will try to, once again, adjust to the cold weather and endless bread and potatoes here in Norway. Wish me luck.
