White Castle – New York City

 White Castel NY

While looking through some old photos, I stumbled upon some pictures that I took in New York last year. They were of White Castle. The place was located on 8th Avenue. The burgers were nice and they serve the order very fast, I had 3 slyders and fries. I wanted to try out White Castel ever since I saw the movie Harold & Kumar Go To White Castel (IMDB). I really liked my experience there, The slyders where good and they came in nifty little square boxes. 

White Castel NY - Burger & Fries

They serve a verity of burgers not just one kind of slyder. nothing that great but they do serve chicken, fish alongside the traditional burger,cheeseburger and bacon.

I have to mention that White Castel is the inventor of the modern Slyders/sliders burgers (mini burgers).

Ping Pong Dim Sum – Dubai

Ping Pong Dim Sum Dubai Mall

We went to Ping Pong Dim Sum restaurant when we we here in Dubai, I never been there before but my wife have tried it in London. So I let her do the honors of ordering.

 More Dim Sum

We got several orders of fried and steamed food, ranging from vegetarian to shrimps and chicken. At first I thought that it would be a lot but after the food arrived I realized that I was mistaken.

Fried Dim Sum

Both fried and steamed Dim Sum were great, loved every order we had except for the “Wasabi Peanuts” (The only thing I ordered), those things where burning HOT!! and not in a good way.

We had a total of 7 orders I think, and that was not enough I still left there not full, I recommend having 4 of Dim Sum orders per person and you can share them around.

I really liked it and recommend it to anyone who likes dim sum and/or Chinese food.

Ping Pong is located at the lower ground level in Dubai Mall towards the fountains.

The Wolfman – Movie Review

The Wolfman

Yesterday me and a couple of friends wanted to watch a movie and get a bite to eat. looking through the list of movies over at CineScape’s website there were only 2 options. The Wolfman and From Paris With Love. We chose The Wolfman just because it had Anthony Hopkins in it.

Man were we disappointed, the movie had nothing special, its your typical werewolf movie, no twists and turns. No surprises what so ever. I really had high hopes and expectations for this movie.

Sir Anthony Hopkins, you let me down.

I got a little cheered up after having a chili burger from Johnny Rockets though :)

That’s 2 movies out of a possible 5 from my list so far. Better get my act together and start catching up.

Shutter Island – Movie Review

22 Feb 2010  4 Comments

Being Sunday morning i was able to sleep in, i woke up and flipped thru my iphone and was face to face with Flixster. I decided to check out which were the nearest movie theaters with any decent movies, and stumbled upon Shutter Island. Flixster gave it a 70% but i decided to try it out nevertheless. I used to hate Leonardo Dicaprio, but after such movies as The Aviator,  Catch me if You Can, Blood Diamond, Body of Lies and The Departed more recently, he has become one of the actors i am enjoying most in movies. So we went off to the movie theater but decided to eat as we were an hour early for the movie. We went to a Brazilian grill restaraunt which was right by the cinema, and it was awful. Its called Tucano’s grill, and it seemed like the meat was from actual Tucan’s, the bird that is. Anyway back to the movie.

The movie is around 2hrs and 18mins. The only way i can describe it is delusional, hallucinating and utterly genius. It drags you on for almost 2 hours thinking that you know whats going on, when the last 10 minutes it changes totally. Its not like a Sixth Sense kind of ending, but you have the feeling all the way through that something is not right, but its totally different than what you imagine. Of course there will be parts of the movie where you might think it is slow and too easy to guess, but only the ending does justice to the movie. Basically it is about a US marshall (Dicaprio), who is investigating an escaped murderess from a remote island (Shutter Island) which is a hospital for the criminally insane. Martin Scorsese again does not fail to amaze with this plot and ending. IMDB gave it an 8.5, and for their standards that is pretty high. Great movie, with lots of twists and turns and worth the watch.

Munch Cart 

I posted a few days ago about our little burger BBQ that we had using the Kobe Burger. This weekend I decided to not do anything and just enjoy the food. so we gave Munch a call.

We order a few Pizzas, mini burgers, lamp chops and a couple of orders of chicken.

Burnin' Burgers

They come equipped with every thing (2 grills, a cooler for the meat, prep area, cooking utensils and all the ingredients needed) you just need your serving plates.

The food was excellent, will definitely give them another call really soon.

Burger on the Grill

Last weekend we had very nice weather hear, so we decided to have a BBQ. I usually do my own patties, but because this was sudden we decided to try the Kobe Burger.

Kobe Stack

So my wife picked up a dozen burgers from Sultan Center. It was a very nice burger with minimal effort. The burgers were so juicy and tasty. need to find a better bun though.

The Burger

I would love a real burger at the moment.
