LOVE reading the REAL GEORDIE ARMANI blog. LOVE the lady behind the words. LOVE her passion. One of the best places to find out about what's new and good is on the REAL Geordie Armani blog. With so many food outlets in Dubai, it’s great to have a credible route to finding them. What we love most about GA is that she has a real passion for good food, doesn’t shy away from recommending what food excites her and is particularly keen on supporting home-grown businesses. Go GA, you definitely have our vote xx

A very down to earth, no-frills review of restaurants in the UAE. All the while written in perfectly understandable language without a lot of the foodie jargon the others use. Website design is simple and easy to navigate, and has had me searching for Geordie Armani + 'Restaurant name' almost every time I want to try out a new place. Plus connections to Facebook pages and Twitter account makes sure we're always updated; a lot of dedication put in there!
