Gunaydin : A Turkish Steakhouse Restaurant by the Souq like no other!

Image
They say in Dubai you can't go wrong with Turkish food!

Its probably true because Turkish food has been around in the UAE for longer than anyone can remember. Right from the delicious Kepabs and Doners to the toothsome Bakalava and Kenefe - Turkish cuisine has remained an indispensable part of the UAE culinary gastroscape, so to say.




There are umpteen choices for experiencing authentic Turkish cuisine in Dubai and in my opinion Gunaydin is probably one of the best and most popular recommendation by anyone who knows Turkish food well.


Established in 1965, Günaydın began as a small butcher shop in İstanbul and slowly grew to become one of Turkey’s unequivocal leading meat brand ever since. Starting the Steakhouse restaurant concept to showcase its craftsmanship with the most delicious high-quality meats, Günaydın has become the most trustworthy address with over 40 successful restaurants and steakhouses in Turkey.

Ayubowan - An Authentic taste of Srilanka in Dubai

Image
For someone who has never tried Sri Lankan food before, Ayubowan came as a pleasant surprise to me. Not only did I enjoy the fare lined up for me, but also gained a new appreciation and liking for Sri Lankan cuisine. And needless to say, the Spice factor was the biggest bonus for me.


As an Indian who appreciates extreme spicy food, I enjoy every indulgence with loads of peppers, chilies and spices but unfortunately in Dubai many of the fare presented in five-star hotels are usually to suit the western tastes – or in other words Chilly is the las thing in the ingredient. So when I get a chance to indulge in some spice, I take it on.


We started off with some complimentary shots of Ambarella and tender coconut juice before going on to the starters.
In appetizers we were served with fish cutlet in the form of balls.The cutlets were soft and the fish flavor was subtle to a very enjoyable level. We then had a piping hot bowl of healthy and nutritious Gotu Kola Soup. This is a soup you can fin…
