Hello! This post is about our cuisine preferences in Abu Dhabi and our impressions from hotel Sofitel Abu Dhabi Corniche.
The end of March and the beginning of April were full of occasions (Easter and our (my husband's and mine) birthdays) so we decided to celebrate them in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
From Kenya we went to Dubai with Ethiopian Airways through Adis Ababa. It was a red eye flight as we arrived at 3am in Dubai. Right after the arrival we drove in our rented car to Abu Dhabi which was our first stop in the Emirates. In Abu Dhabi we wanted to visit a couple of places as Sheikh Zayed Mosque and Ferrari World, not mentioning the fact that we had some business engagements to finish there.
About Sheikh Zayed Mosque and Ferrari World read in my next posts, while in this post I will explain why the first thing we looked for in Abu Dhabi was Arabic cuisine and whether the Sofitel hotel was worth staying in.
In Nairobi one can hardly find a decent cafe or a restaurant with delicious Arabic cuisine. So after almost a 5-month stay in Nairobi without a smallest bite of usual Arabic breakfasts, delicious hummus, mutabbal, labneh, shish taouk, waraq enab, kebbeh... and so much more. So we literally meant to eat ONLY Arabic food in UAE. That is why our first breakfast and many others were in Arabic, mostly Lebanese restaurants.
On the photos Lebanese Flower restaurant is pictured. We highly recommend this place in terms of the quality of their food and the usual quantities that they serve in Arabic restaurants. The service was great as usual. If you live in UAE or just visiting and love Arabic cuisine, you must visit this place.
After a good breakfast the only thing we needed was a good nap, as due to the night flight we had hardly slept. So when we arrived in our hotel we were very surprised as we had not expected our room to be so comfortable and nicely decorated. The first thing we noticed was the quality of the service of this hotel. Actually it was one of the best places we have ever stayed in. We would definitely recommend it to everyone.
Although it was not our first time in a hotel of Sofitel brand, as the first our experience was in Lebanon, Sofitel Corniche in Abu Dhabi is particularly luxurious and comfortable.
