MORE TO SEE AT MORAH
A brand new restaurant on the 72nd floor of the JW Marriott hotel in Sheikh Zayed road. We're brunching at Morah, called Byblos in Miami and Toronto but Morah in Dubai. We're eating oysters, pides and classy rice and daal. This is part of the same group that brought us Weslodge a few floors below. Belly dancers or the Burj Khalifa, what turns your head? Here's Chef Stuart Cameron telling about what he likes at Morah.
HIGH END CUISINE FROM HYDERABAD HERE TO STAY
Tried some excellent Indian food this time part of a special Hyderabadi promotion at the Ananta at the Oberoi in Business Bay. Although the visiting chef who learned his craft from one of the only 6 remaining Royal chefs specializing in Hyderabadi cuisine has now left, you can still try quite a few of the dishes at the Ananta as they'll be keeping them on there. We loved our Apollo Fish curry and purple sweet potato aloo ki tikki! Could eat this once a week for a year! The cuisine of Kings well Nizams as they were called now available at Ananta. Try it Here's Chef Dirham talking about the prawns served on a hot brick of Himalayan rock salt!

IL BORRO SOUNDS BRILLIANT
New and romantic. I'm looking forward to try Il Borro the first branch outside Tuscany for this Salvatore Ferragamo family owned Italian restaurant. Sounds romantic as it's located on the side of the Turtle Lagoon in the new Al Naseem hotel next to the Madinat Jumeirah. Sounds like classic Italian food, not as casual as Toscana, but not as formal as Cipriani. Some friends of mine have already been, it opened on 12th of January and they loved it. We'll review this one next time, but if you fancy Tuscany for half term then try La Bandita townhouse in Pienza.
