Which is why, when Ate Ning called me with an invitation for dinner at the hotel's J&G Steakhouse last week, I cleared my schedule for Thursday. Bonding with my sister over a free dinner at a luxury hotel…you can’t say no to that, right? ☺
Upon entering the hotel grounds that night, I couldn’t help but stare in awe at what I was seeing. The gardens and path leading to St. Regis Dubai was simply grand, making me feel like I was approaching a palace. The lobby was just as magnificent with two marbled staircases and an impressive chandelier hanging from the ceiling.

Compared to the brightly lit hotel lobby, the lighting in the J&G Steakhouse was dim, but we didn’t mind because it fit the ambiance anyway.

Our entrée was, naturally, the Tomahawk steak; and as our medium well done steak was being wheeled in on a trolley towards our table, we couldn’t believe our eyes. Weighing 1.4kg, it was huge!
In between bites, Ate Ning and I would talk about whatever what was going on in our lives. And since she's a doting aunt to Caila and Sophie, I updated her with their latest antics and kalokohans.
Despite being full, we simply couldn’t not have our favourite part of the meal. Dessert was Warm Chocolate Cake paired with Coconut Milk Sorbet topped with Pepper Tuile.
