Girls’ Supper Club

Our mission: To meet twice a month and experience Dubai’s many diverse restaurants while having a good time laughing, gossiping, and just girlie-talking.

The original branch of Caspian Kabab is located on Rolla Road in Bur Dubai. A street that would never have made it on my food radar had a new branch of this restaurant not opened up in Barsha, a neighborhood much closer to home for me than Bur Dubai. But keen for a sense of […]
