They invited a group of us Dubai-based parenting bloggers to try their Kids Menu. Ivo was very impressed, and loved being allowed to sit on the benches like a grown-up boy. He even had a glass of apple juice in a champagne flute!
East Kitchen had prepared a lovely selection of vegetable and cooked sushi, including teriyaki chicken and avocado rolls. Crunchy vegetable spring rolls and chicken satay completed the menu, along with a huge bowl of prawn crackers.
Ivo spotted the crackers instantly, and enjoyed dip-dipping into the sweet chilli sauce. While I chatted to the other bloggers, he managed to put away nearly half the bowl!
As a consequence, we didn’t actually manage to get him to eat any sushi, but he was very enthusiastic about the satay sticks, and the avocado from inside the rolls. I think we’ll build up towards the more exotic options.
Ivo also enjoyed exploring the restaurant, including the kitchens, and playing hide-and-seek under the table.
All-in-all, the trip was a huge success, and great mother-and-son bonding time without Arthur the baby. It made me realised we ought to take the children to more restaurants – it’s a proper treat.
