Went to Fatafeet a couple of days ago for lunch. It seems they do their main business at night, as we were the only customers there in the afternoon. We had stuffed pigeons, foul madames and okra stew. Their menu is extensive. However, the stuffed pigeons did not taste fresh (I guess it is difficult to have such a dish made the same day). The okra was tasty and the meat in the stew was tender. We were also given an aubergine salad - this consisted of sliced aubergines covered in a garlic, chilli and oil dressing. It was tasty and very spicy. We had two big baskets of bread - Egyptian bread and pitta bread. Overall I'd say this is a good restaurant. I would go there again in the evening (when the weather is cooler and you don't have to sit right next to a huge AC unit) for a better atmosphere, shisha and some mezze! Very good: Blue Elephant in Al Bustan Rotana Hotel. We had the buffet special for 95 Dhs. Good choice of dishes, including a pick-it-yourself stiry fry that is cooked for you there and then. I noticed they had a special vegetarian section as well. The service was immaculate. We felt like royality. The dessert section was amazing - such a wide range of fruits (as well as some other Thai desserts). This included lychees, jack fruit, mangoes, melon, mangosteen, papaya, pineapple and water melon. Definitely worth a visit. One member of my party assured me that he had never seen such a comprehensive wine list (in Dubai) as the one at the Blue Elephant. Very good: Noodle House in Emirates Towers. We had to wait 30 minutes for a seat (they do not take reservations), but it was worth it. The seating is on long benches, refectory style. We had beef szechwan, steamed rice and cantonese style duck for the main course. For starters we had chicken dumplings and vegetable spring rolls. All the dishes were tasty and refreshing. The beef contained a balanced mix of black bean sauce, stir fried veg and onions and chillies. Enjoyable: Chilis in City Centre shopping mall. For Mexican fast food, this restaurant is a good place to go to. The atmosphere is relaxed and the portions very generous. As usual: Clay Oven was excellent. Had the vegetable kadahi - yum yum yum. We ordered peas pilau as well as Naan. It is great with the Naan. For 4 of us the bill came to 115 Dhs (£19)!! Such excellent value on top of a delectable meal - what more could you ask for?
