Irvine's Diary - Craving Overdose! Noodle Bowl.

My daily life in the Dubai has been very... erm... slow-paced! Rushing to work every morning, cough*, getting off work on time, preparing dinner, driving my love home after work, cleaning the house, hitting the gym, watching drama, blogging, playstation4, shopping and catching movies, travelling, etc.

But time passes... i dont know why, incredibly fast! Time flies. We have been here for almost a year now. But felt like only a few months. Am i gonna be a old brat? 

Unlike in Malaysia, we usually grab a pint of lager at the bar, chill out at starbucks outdoor, play some golf, wake-boarding during weekends, yum-cha, ta-kei, hit the club, drive up to Genting Highland to chill, etc.

In comparison, I guess my life in Dubai is much heathier then! Feeling old* 

Well, no matter where you are and what you are doing. There is always cravings for one thing. Good Food! In the desert country, right smack in the middle of the earth, you do get good food too. And what i meant was, Good Malaysian Food!

Noodle Bowl

At Dune Center, Al Diyafa Street, Satwa, Dubai

Craving too much of Malaysian Food after checking out so many blog post of mouth watering delicous Malaysian Food. So if you are in Dubai and you need to feel like home, or just wanting to try out Malaysian Cooking, indeed, Noodle Bowl is one of the best pick!

Steamed Egg Custard Bun
Half Roasted Duck

Malaysian Style Hainan Chicken Rice

Malaysian Style Nasi Lemak
Our late dinner for two! The food was really good, quite comparable to what you can get in Malaysia. Love the roast duck the most. Finally! Even the duck sauce was similiar!

Nasi lemak was good. Love the sambal. Not the spicy type, a little bit sweet. Just like what you will get in Village Park Nasi Lemak, Kota Damansara, Malaysian. My tummy was satisfied. I am definitely coming back for more. Authentic asian food!

Cost : AED165, equivalent to RM150. Damage!

Oooo...duck!!! I love duck but my missus does not eat it so I do not get to eat that at home. :( Nasi lemak sure looks good. Bet all these cost a bomb there...but it's ok, all of you there are very highly paid. Wink! Wink!

Ya, time sure flies. Coming to end of November, will be Christmas soon and then it's the New year!

ahh then you gotta "curi-curi" have it out!

yeah many thing cost a bomb here, but cars are very cheap though :)))

Well, living healthy doesn't have to mean that you're old. It just means you are enlightened earlier than others!
It's funny how our measuring yardstick changes when we are overseas. At home, we are obsessed with having the best nasi lemak in town, best char kuay teow in town and so on. Out there, as long as it taste similar to what we're used to, then it is very good! :D

Is this the only place serving Msian food in Dubai?

Coffee Girl said...

so it's not that difficult to get good Malaysian food there? would it be the same if you cook your own I suppose? :-)

Nux V said...

all the food looks good! i like the roast duck the most! UAE currency rate almost like MYR also, coz seeing frm the figure, the difference is not much. Anyhow, their cost of living is high right?

Irvine Chin said...

RealGunners, yeah, living things just get used to their daily intake. Just like "rice" is a food many asian need for their meal.

mun, there is actually quite a few more. this is just the first one i been to :)

Irvine Chin said...

hey there coffeegirl!

erm, it is not that difficult, perhaps very very few restaurants, less variety. You do get plentiful of indian food due to the huge population of indians here.

I do cook myself, however, some food like roast duck is something difficult to be done at home :P

at times i would eat out, too tiring to cook at home.

Irvine Chin said...

Nux V, thanks. erm UAE currency is just slight lower. say AED0.85 equivalent to RM1.00.

Yeah living expenses here is very high. can say in terms of property and food.

Other things seems faily comparable! cars are very cheap though. Many things can be a lot cheaper than Malaysia when it comes to tax free :)))))
