Food: The Counter – an all American meal!

The Counter recently opened up it’s newest branch in The Dubai Mall and I was happy to find a great burger place close by.

Famous for their burgers (voted LA’s best burger) and the customizable  options on the menu – I decided to make my own milkshake.

My shake consisted of sweet butterscotch, strong espresso and bits of salted pretzels in every sip!

Fries are life, and the offerings at the Counter sure back up that philosophy. Loved everything that was tried: from chili cheese fries with a subtle yet spicy chili with sour cream and onions to complete the dish –  to a sweet and tangy mixture that is sweet sriracha fries with sweet onion and sesame seeds for a crunchy kick. There were also light sweet potato fries with horseradish aioli, onion strings and parmesan shoestring fries. This was definitely fry heaven!

Un-brie leavable chicken burger from @thecounterme super fillling and slightly sweet!

The un-brie-lievable was the perfect burger choice for me, grilled chicken lying atop a bed of mixed greens and tomatoes then topped with a layer of brie cheese and juicy cranberries. This crisp multigrain bread was another winner and the sweet apricot sauce served on the side made this burger seem a little festive!

Tried out the build your own burger which consisted of 1/3 lb ground beef patty with organic greens, spicy pepperocinis, tomatoes, tillamook cheddar, red relish and topped with smoked beef bacon in a hamburger bun.

Overall a fantastic lunch I’m sure my instagram caption summarizes it befittingly – Burgers, iced tea and a date with fries at the newly opened @thecounterme

Christmas with Paul and Eataly

Last week, we headed to Paul early for breakfast and a media preview of their new Christmas collection. The hustle and bustle of Paul surely doesn’t stop even at 9 am, people gotta get their pastries and coffee.

We started off with a range of their new selections of bread and canapes. Mmm salmon crostini’s and caprese sticks innovatively presented sandwiched between a cherry tomato.

Isn’t this cool, use a huge hollow roll of bread to keep your sandwiches in perfect idea for a picnic, The stuffed croissants were also kept in another fresh bread container – give me a croissant stuffed with mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes any day.

How can it be Christmas without some roasted turkey, talk about delicious with tender caramelized meat. The maple glazed salmon was also flavorful with a sweet aftertaste.

Paul also stocks a range of Christmas cakes that you can pre-order at least 24 hours in advance. Continue reading Christmas with Paul and Eataly
