Burj Al Arab from a far

From the distance, you seem to be an ordinary building. Just like any other buildings your one amazing infrastructure. People would like to see the inside of you. Your unique body makes it unique from them all.

Burj Al Arab was completed by the year 1999. The building was design by a consultancy named Atkins, led by Architect Tom Wright. It is owned and managed by Jumeirah Group of companies in Dubai owning different other 5 star hotels.

When hearing the word Burj Al Arab the people will immediately say “The Golden Hotel”. True to its promise, the building is really the most lavish hotel and only 7-star in the world.

Burj-The Golden Hotel

April 26, 2016, when I first step on your door steps and I really love what I am seeing. Inside of you has left me completely looking for more. Burj Al Arab will definitely set your goals when booking their rooms. So I, my fiance and his family went there for a show around and a scrumptious lunch buffet in Bab Al Yam.

Burj Facade

When entering inside you will see the gorgeous fountain in between two escalators. From the facade with different colors will leave you completely mesmerized. You think you have seen it all? This is only the beginning. After entering we were given the chance to explore the hotel and after it got the chance to see their stunning deluxe two-bedroom suite.

Yes there is a fountain inside the hotel, amazing right?

South-East Asian Dining at Noodle House | Dubai

Noodle House is owned and managed by Jumeirah Restaurants. The inspiration of the restaurant was based from South-East Asian countries mainly from Hongkong, China, Thailand and Indonesia.

Since it opened in 2002 it has already 16 restaurants in different parts of Middle East like Pakistan, Cyprus, Oman, Kuwait, UAE, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia.

I myself have been to their three branches in Dubai which are located in Souk Madinat Jumeirah, Burjuman and The Dubai Mall. Burjuman branch will always be the best one for me because of its ambience, relaxing setting and its location.

So far the dishes that we tried are their best selling. From dim sum, duck, noodles and beverages. They also sell desserts too!

Their duck dim sum and vegetable spring rolls are the best. Duck dim sum is best consumed while it is still hot and  vegetable spring roll is best paired with their sweet and sour sauce. Dim sums are best when you are hungry because serving time is only around 10 minutes from the time you order your food.

You will never go wrong with their Chicken Siew Mai served with hot chilli bean sauce.

Singaporean Curry Laksa is fiance’s favourite, well I liked it too. Ingredients are laksa noodles, chicken, prawns, tofu and fish balls. Small costs 40 dirhams and large 55 dirhams. Believe it or not, large is good for two people.

Duck wonton soup is best for people who loves to eat duck. Ingredients are ban mien noodles, duck dumpling and roasted duck. Small costs 35 and large is 45. So cheap right? The soup was really cooked well, along with the duck and the dumplings. It really tastes good!

Paid Thai, my love affair with Thai cuisine. Ingredients are rice stick noodles, prawns, fried tofu, beansprouts, tamarind sauce and nuts (it is optional by the way). The noodles were not overcooked, and the spicy of it was medium only and the overall flavour was good! No wonder Thai cuisine is definitely loved by all people.

Nasi Goreng

Nasi Goreng. An Indonesian cuisine, ingredients are chicken satay, fried egg on top of fried rice and prawn crackers. The chicken satay is soft and chewy that makes you crave for more. This and Pad Thai are one of their best sellers. It only cost 50 dirhams for one dish.

They serve different kinds of beverages from mocktails, iced tea, tea, soft drinks, juices, water and coffee. The one I ordered was Strawberry Lemonade which is their best seller so far. Includes fresh strawberries, and mint leaves that’s why it has the minty effect.
