A decadent lunch at The World Famous IVY restaurant in Dubai

Enjoying a lovely summer mocktail in my cute sun dress on a hot and lazy Dubai afternoon.

Miss Mimi enjoying her berry cooler!  We take the term "Ladies who Lunch" to another level:)

Heirloom tomato and Onion salad, sweet, tangy, and fresh! The gorgeous textures and colors make this salad so appetizing even in its simplicity.

The IVY burger has developed quite a reputation around town, and after trying one for myself.......
I would have to say, it's nicely presented and has a lovely array of condiments including the delicately cut relish and the mustard ketchup concoction, but it was overcooked, which is a BIG deal in the burger world! Perhaps it was an off day...... 
The Salmon cake was rich, with the creamy sorrel sauce and sauteed spinach.  The texture was soft and seemed to just melt in my mouth.

This was definitely one of the heaviest lunches I've had in a while, and to top it off......Banana Sticky Toffee Pudding!  This has got to be one of my most favorite desserts in Dubai.  Sticky Toffee pudding on its own is divine, but with the added banana, its unreal! 

The food at the IVY is rich and tasty.  It's one of those places you should save for special occasions, because the calorie count gets pretty high.  But every meal is presented beautifully, and meticulously crafted by the culinary arts professionals in the kitchen.  The IVY is located at Emirates Towers in Dubai.  For more information on the menu....
