Last weekend we had dinner at MoMo in Harvey Nichols in Dubai. It was incredibly glam and full of beautiful Emiratis, as well as a generous sprinkling of uber-trendy Middle Easterners and a few Europeans.
Richard and I enjoyed a tagine of chicken with olives and preserved lemons. While the lads were smoking shisha I enjoyed a wafer-thin apple tart with star anise ice-cream garnished with crushed pistachios.
We really enjoyed the Moroccan tea they served from a beautiful silver pot into little glasses. It was a mixture of mint, clove and cardamom I think. We went straight out and bought some from the supermarket. (Lipton makes one.) We are enjoying it without sugar, with a couple of fresh mint leaves floating in it.
