Last weekend was so much fun!
A friend of my husbands is in town and we arranged to meet up for dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe at Festival City in Dubai.
The hubby and I thought we'd make a weekend of it and booked a room at the Crowne Plaza Festival City.
I must say the hotel was gorgeous, and we were very lucky that even though it's Ramadan here at the moment the hotel still serves food and drink by the pool with the exception of alcohol!
We had a great afternoon chilling by the pool, actually mostly in the pool as it's over 40 degrees celsius at the mo!
My husband order some calamari, as that is one of his faves! and he said it was really good. I knew we'd have a big meal that night, so I just went for the ice-cream, three scoops.
I had two vanilla and one strawberry, oh my gosh it was so tasty, perfect for a sunny afternoon by the pool!
We had a great time at the Hard Rock Cafe. Never disappoints! I had their legendary 10oz burger with fries and it was gorgeous! Exactly how a burger should be, big, tasty and not filled with loads of salad! It does come with lettuce, pickle and tomato, but it's served on the side, so you can add to your tasting!
I've also started to collect their glasses! I have one already from their branch in Dublin, so I had to order myself a Hurricane cocktail for dessert and paid a bit extra to keep the glass!
I think the Hurricane is my new favorite cocktail, large, fruity and very alcoholic haha! All in all a great night. If you're looking for good value, tasty food, great location with lot's of atmosphere then I would definitely recommend the Hard Rock!
Festival City in Dubai is a great location, as you have the mall there too which is connected to the hotels, so no need to walk outside in the sweltering heat! There's a good selection of shops which include a big Marks and Spencers and an Ikea too. A definite must if you are ever in Dubai!
