Pinoy Lomi House: Karama, Dubai

Hooray for another affordable Pinoy Buffet!

100% Pinoy Buffet for 29aed?!!! Say what now?! So here I thought that we scored BIG when we ate at Hot Palayok (check out my previous blog about it here) with their buffet for just 49aed per head, and then here we have a Pinoy buffet for the price of 29aed! Yes the ambiance may not be as nice as the other one but it is a decent and neat place to eat. 

The nice thing about this place is that the taste and flavor of the food is at par quality! The wide variety of food is commendable with the value for money they offer. A downside though is that it is located in the busy area of Karama, so expect that finding a parking space is quite hard especially during peak hours! Just talking about it makes me salivate...note to self never write a food post on an empty stomach! :p

My favorite part was their dessert bar! Their Halo-halo was one of the best DIY station I've tried! Better try their Leche Flan surely one to die for! 

Love love their pastries area as well, their cakes are soft and moist and not too sweet, which I like! 

Salad bar to freshen your palate

















 Yeeessss...Crabs!

















I'm salivating just typing and looking at all these pictures! Will definitely go back one of these days!

Qasr Al Sultan (The Sultans Palace)

Suhoor at the Sultans Palace 


If you want to try a unique experience that reflects Arabian Culture, then... Qasr Al Sultan is the place to go to. I was lucky to get to experience this as, our annual Suhoor was held here. 

(Suhur "pre-dawn meal"; is an Islamic term referring to the meal consumed early in the morning by Muslims before fasting, sawm, before dawn during or outside the Islamic month of Ramadan.)

Being in Qasr Al Sultan is a whole new experience itself. Upon entering you have this elegant feel of being welcomed in a Sheikh's palace hence, the name Qasr Al Sultan. It's like you've traveled back to a time when Dubai is not that luxurious city that it is now. You know the feeling of being in the Disney cartoon Aladdin, that was exactly what was going on in my mind when we entered the place. As you go around you will be greeted by small traditional shops selling traditional arts and crafts, including ornate jewelry, lavish carpets and beautifully tailored clothing, before finding your way into the bright, colorful and aromatic spice bazaar. And not a long walk from these winding streets you will reach the hustle and bustle of the Food Bazaar, where live cooking is in every corner. 



























If you want to try and experience a different kind of dining that reflects the rich culture and tradition of UAE, I highly recommend going to Qasr Al Sultan. It's like being invited in an extravagant feast at the Sultans Palace.
