OlioJumeriahHotelLast night, I was invited to pass by for a dinner at Olio Restaurant - Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel and Spa. Around 7pm, I arrived to the hotel. I thought the restaurant is located at one of the restaurants in the ground floor. But the security guided to me to the restaurant located next to the swimming pool and beachfront area. They server lunch and dinner only starting from 12pm till 12am.

Olio is an Italian restaurant located on the hotel’s beachfront,  directed by a new Italian Chef. Francesco Picaro. They offer a selection of Italian appetizers, homemade pasta, oven fresh pizza and typical Italian main courses, as well as delicious desserts.

OlioRestaurantThe restaurant manager introduced himself and gave me some details about the restaurant. I chose to dine-in outside with a wonderful beach view. I had for dinner shrimps, mozzarella bread, margarita pizza and tiramisu cake. I liked their food specially it tastes as a traditional Italian ingredients. I just commented back to the manager about the dishes. I recommend if the food could be served in other dishes. Overall I don’t have any comments regarding the food taste. I rate the restaurant 09/10.

I saw on YouTube a comedy show by the Indo-Canadian comedian and actor Russell Peters. Through the show, he mentioned how the Louis Vuitton customers acts. I really start laughing how the Indians and Chinese act when they want to purchase Louis Vuitton product. I actually say, it’s absolutely true!.

HomeSlicePizzaThis suburb I entered by mistake during my walk in London – Soho. However, at that time it was rainy and windy. So I passed through a small pizza restaurant called Home Slice Pizza to have some lunch.

Discover Liverpool

April 22nd, 2014 | Posted by Khalil in Information | Personal | Reviews | Travel | World Life - (0 Comments)

LiverpoolLiverpool is a city were you can relax and enjoy the fresh air. I visited Liverpool when I was a kid. I drove down towards to Liverpool during my recent trip to London. Stayed three days re-discovering the city and meet up my friends.

I took London Euston Virgin Trains towards Liverpool Lime Street. The duration took 2hrs and 15 minutes only. I stayed at Liverpool Indigo Hotel. The hotel is quite good and near to the dock, city centre, shopping area and rail station.

LiverpoolDockOf course, when I arrived to the city, I walked down to the Albert Dock. Lots of things changed, new buildings and of course the museums are still the same. I enjoyed walking down the Albert Dock with my Starbucks Coffee and headset on listening to some music. 

AnfieldThis is the first time visiting Anfield (Liverpool FC Stadium). It was Thursday morning and just the day before Liverpool VS Man. City match. The stadium were full with guests. I waited for hours to get my turn to have a mini tour inside the stadium. The tour includes visit to the field and museum only. 

LiverpoolShoppingLiverpool City Centre is small compared to London. If you are looking somewhere to shop and eat. Liverpool ONE is a shopping, residential and leisure complex. Luxury brands, Cinema, Restaurants and Cafes are all available inside Liverpool ONE. 

I really enjoyed Liverpool specially walking around and breathing-in the fresh air. I think three days is enough to stay in Liverpool to  wonderful area the city.

StarbucksLondonI think there are special moments during the day to pick-up your coffee. During my last trip to London, I usually pick-up my Starbucks Coffee before I have lunch. I love to drink Starbucks Coffee in London because it got a unique taste and cheap price compared to Kuwait. In London Mayfair you can find Starbucks almost in every street.
