Mina A Salam Madinat Jumeirah

Mina A Salam Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Waterside Dining with Enchanting Views
Chefs have come and gone over the years and with them the seafood-based cuisine has changed. One thing that has remained, however, at this over-water restaurant is the enchanting views. In one direction there's the illuminated sail-shaped Burj Al Arab hotel jutting into the sea and directly ahead the Madinat Jumeirah complex -- captivating at night! - sprawling along the coast. Located at the end of a purpose-built wooden wharf, Pierchic is Dubai's most romantic restaurant -- regardless of what's on the menu. The best tables are on the decks - a must during the cooler winter months. (In December and January, you might actually need a pashmina for your shoulders.) During the hotter months, reserve a table inside with the best views. The current head chef, Rosalind Parsk, worked for Michelin-starred British chefs Gordon Ramsay, Marco Pierre White and Gary Rhodes, so as you'd expect, the food is sublime, especially the fish. Whatever you do, start with freshly shucked oysters and bubbly, and order Omani lobster if it's on the menu.

Cuisine Wat Damnak

Krong Siem Reap
Cuisine Wat Damnak, Krong Siem Reap, Cambodia
Contemporary Cambodian
Since 2011, chef Johannès Rivière has been tempting, surprising and pleasing diners at Cuisine Wat Damnak, his marvelous Cambodian fusion restaurant in Siem Reap. The restaurant features frequently changing tasting menus showcasing lesser known Cambodian dishes and with unexpected flavor combinations. The focus at Wat Damnak is not on traditional Khmer food, but rather, new ways to use locally sourced, seasonal produce, such as Tonle Sap croaker and kuy fruit. The setting is refined, and a choice selection of reasonably priced wines pair well with Cambodian flavors. Chef Rivière's long experience in the region--he developed tasting menus at Siem Rieap's Hotel de la Paix, and headed culinary classes at Sala Bai Hotel and Restaurant School--make him the ideal guide to contemporary Cambodian food. A meal at Wat Damnak is a dining experience worth traveling for!

The Hotel Windsor

The Hotel Windsor, Melbourne, Australia
Playing Queen For An Arvo.
High tea is one of my faves. It's hard not to love an excuse to sit for hours on end, drinking bottomless cups of tea and enjoying sweet goodies. I can't think of a person who would be able to dispute the wonderfulness of that. Seriously. The Hotel Windsor, of "grand" 19th century hotel fame, offers an indulgent and fittingly delightful afternoon tea, any afternoon of the week. Culinary offerings include homemade scones with multiple jam varieties, perfectly gorgeous ribbon sandwiches, and a decadent selection of pretty little pastries. You'll be sure to feel a little royal, if only for an arvo.
