Roseleaf

My passion for home cooked food is one that is deeply ingrained, passed down to me through generations of formidable women in my life. Over the years these special moments and the sharing of recipes has imprinted a deep passion for food, cooking and the kitchen that is my sanctuary. The recipes shared with me have made my kitchen a place to welcome a constant circle of family and friends for home cooked meals with cultural influences from the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand.

Socks Apart

We don’t believe in logic. We can hardly follow the rules. We are even bad in math (you might get a ridiculous discount). We try, we fail, we laugh, we try again, blessed if we succeed, in that order. You are not the only ones laughing at us, we are laughing at ourselves too. Contrary to what we’ve been taught, we consider these our strengths. Flying kick, sir.

Lokal of the month

Mleiha

Mleiha, a UNESCO-nominated World Heritage Site in the Central Region of the Sharjah map, is home to a number of significant sites, including Bronze Age tombs and pre-Islamic forts. Fascinating artifacts and fossils were discovered here, including pottery, iron tools and camel skeletons. The Mleiha Archaeological Centre, which opened in 2016, houses these discoveries and even more artifacts that uncover ancient UAE history.

The centre also offers a range of tours and activities. You can explore the archaeological sites or venture into the sand dunes with a desert safari. Alternatively, you can also try other desert adventures like riding a quad bike or dune buggy over the sand. If you prefer to go on foot, consider trekking to Camel Rock for an expansive view of the desert. The surrounding area is a beautiful location for a desert camp on soft dunes and under glittering night stars.
