23rd November 2020
SUSHI BY THE SEA FOR LESS A cool deal at a very established venue in Dubai, ShoCho’s at the Dubai Marine Beach Resort in Jumieirah 1.
DEAL: 150 for 3 beverages, and to eat? Edamame, Sushi, Sashimi and Maki with gorgeous views of the sea. I like it as it’s a small but perfectly formed little bit of beach and ShoCho’s location is spot on!
Also if you didn’t go out or wanted to keep an eye on the pennies and the waistline OVER YOUR WEEKEND, but wanted something that felt high as a weekday treat, then AED 150 to spend on this kind of meal is a decent deal for Dubai I think. ? BOOK BEFORE HAND for this Sunday Classic Deal.
DON’T GET THE BLUES THINKING ABOUT THE PRICE OF BLUE CHEESE THIS WEEK! WHY? Because it’s on offer at Carrefour for AED 45 A KILO vs AED 75! So that means for say a decent 200 gram slab of cheese you pay AED 9.00 as opposed to AED 15 so buy some fancy crackers and sit in the garden and eat away the blues. Which cheese exactly ? Bleu d’Auvergne Skin-Pack Cheese, also some other french cheese also on sale this week at Carrefour

So book through Core Direction for a different start to Friday in Dubai.WHY PAY MORE WHEN YOU GO TO BRANDS FOR LESS? A brand new to me shop been opened for about 3 months now a large single floor of NEW, not 2nd hand goods all massively marked down products, from shoes, bags, clothes, jewelry, beauty products and designer sunglasses. I’d vote for little kids clothes, and maybe the designer sunnies. pairs of sun glasses if you live in Dubai.
