Festival City Mall Brings The Flava
Walking through one of the malls the other day (we had to go to Ikea again, after all), we were struck by our surprisingly familiar dinner options. Now, even for Dubai, this is a bit much - we really do have to call them out: On The Border, Chilis, Romano's Macoroni Grill, Fuddruckers, TGI Fridays, and a Bread Company? Seriously?
Now, we are nothing if not thorough researchers. Just to be sure, we had to eat at Macoroni Grill - and sure enough, you get your round loaf of bread with "Italian butter", they write upside down, and deliver food at American speed. Refreshing, but a bit annoying - where's the contempt? The lack of knowledge about the menu? The "I'm sorry sir, but we're out of everything except lobster?" Heck, we even got the left overs for take-away.
Now, where can I get some shawarma?
