La Brasserie- a great new place in town

I firmly believe that a great view is one of the pre-requisites for a superb dining experience.

And when that is coupled with some authentic French cuisine, then that makes for a complete evening...

Which was exactly what we found when we tried out the 'La Brasserie' resataurant at the Mutrah Corniche recently.From the soup, to the superbly aromatic grilled fish, one really couldn't have asked for more.
The cool interiors
The view from the top

The French onion soup- to die for
 So for all you foodies out there, you can either take my word for it, or in this case, you might want to personally check it out, for many a time, "eating is truly believing"

More adventures of Arabia-Wadi Bani Auf

In February we went to Wadi Bani Auf and then owards to check out a bee- keeping farm over there.

It was great fun, all the more because it was a really rough ride.
The bees and their honey
Followed by a long trek upwards to the farm itself.

Now that was one of the most unique things I've ever seen, since the bees and their honey were sealed into logs of wood. There was just enough place for the bees to get in and out and most probably that was the secret of some of the best honey I've ever tasted!

As someone rightly said, "There is usually a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow."
Heading there
Dwarfed by nature

Lush green!
