The Most of 2011

Most Sought After

The Most Sought After

Everyone and their pop-in-law seems to be googling "Shake Shack Dubai" or "Shake Shack Menu" or some other shake + shack + search + string. Not everything on the menu may be worth the frantic search and hype...except maybe that hunk-a-chunk of a cheese-oozing portabello burger. So stop googling and just go try it people. Cyber cheese and menu-ogling just doesn't cut it.

Most Seductive

The Most Seductive

...aka women dressed in chocolate, cake, macarons...the works.

I just realized that my bride-to-be sister and I went through half a year of planning her wedding, and I totally bummed off and forgot to use ideas from this chocolate wedding bash inspired by Choco'a.



Most Artistic

The Most Artistic

All my creative juices were unleashed to procreate this masterpiece for my cheesy sausage fattayer post. I present to you: Blob the Slug. Complete with his own dream sequence and a belly-stuffed wobble. Anyone looking for cool artwork for that empty wall facing their bed?  Well tough, cause this priceless baby ain't for sale.

Most Impactful on the English Vocab

The Most Impactful on the English Vocab

[...yes, I'm aware impactful is NOT a word.]

In a fit of extreme verbal ineptitude, I coined the word floofay to describe these Papparoti buns. When I think of those buns, I just want to run up to a mountain of them and scrunch my teeth through the lot with butter squirting all over in a fountain of happy buttery warm carby yumminess.

They're just so goddang FLOOFAY.

Most Preachy

The Most Preachy

Few things annoy me as much as the loose standards we apply to cupcakes. Not everything with a swirly buttercream top and a cutsie wrapper deserves your precious tum space. And if you can't fathom why not - heck, cupcakes are pretty, and we live in a shallow, shallow world...well read my thesis post on cupcakes and up your standards. Cause you deserve better than a 14 dirham slimy buttercream-capped rock in your mouth.

Most In Your Face

The Most In-Your-Face

Most of my blog posts aim to unveil some foodie find in a tiny corner of Dubai. But this one dedicated to Aubergine Burgers at Gourmet Burger Kitchen had one and only one purpose — to prove that Aubergine Burgers can kick ass if executed right. In reality, this one was sorta mediocre...but my point still holds.


Most Random

This post from one of my escapades in India was called Why a 500 rupee note can't buy you a guava.


...nope, it didn't have any guavas in it.

Most Gluttonous

The Most Gluttonous

I think the intro to our mad binge at China Sea says it all:

We all ate like little big fat piggies at China Sea last week. Six people at the table, twelve dishes, bucketloads of soy sauce, and bellies that had stretched past the point where popping a button or doing a quarter-pull down on a zipper just wouldn't have cut it. If you want to eat at China Sea, arguably one of the oldest authentic Chinese restos in Dubai, then elastic is the only way to go.


Most Mmmm…

The Most Mmmmm...

If I close my eyes and think back to everything I'd eaten in 2011...reminisce about the ups and downs....figure out what I loved most...I'd probably pass out, snoring like a cow. So with my sleep-deprived crackly red eyes barely open, let me tell you what really knocked me out of my senses: those creamy buttery Behari Kababs at Daily. They're tongue-blastingly delicious and deserve to be worshipped in the foodie hall of fame.

Most Mushy

(A little timeline of how Fooderati Arabia came to be...too teeny to read it? Click here for the full blown kahuna version)

I don't typically get all teary-eyed, but one year completed as a group of lovely local food bloggers is worth shedding happy tears over. Fooderati Arabia: you make my blogging experience so much richer...thanks for being the awesome group that you are. If not for the constant inspiration and energy I get from you, I'd barely be churning out 10 posts...a year. *happy sob*
