Expat Life in Dubai

Dubai: The Underground Pub in Habtoor Grand Beach Resort and Spa

June 10, 2013

I’ve always loved this pub. If not for the fact that the valet parking service in Habtoor Grand Beach Resort and Spa sucks, I probably would drag the boyfriend here all the time. The very first time I went there was last August 2012 and it was love at first sight. Since then, we’ve been frequenting the place.

I must warn you though, the Underground Pub is not really for the health freaks which is why I love it. They serve real food with huge servings, very good value for money. Last Friday, the boyfriend and I were wondering where else can we go for breakfast apart from Shakespeare & Co.. I was craving for tapsilog for reasons I don’t really understand. Tapsilog is a Filipino breakfast meal which consists of dried or cured beef, fried rice and fried egg which is how I like my breakfasts to be.

However, I was pretty sure that the boyfriend will not like this kind of breakfast so I searched for a restaurant which serves a big English breakfast. I got really excited when I found out that The Underground Pub serves an all-day English breakfast so off we went there.


Now THAT is the way to start your day. LOL. If that didn’t make your mouth water and you can honestly tell me that you’d prefer to eat a croissant even after seeing that goodness, then you are absolutely crazy. Yum yum yum! Let’s go through each and every food that is on that plate:

Eggs – you can choose to have it cooked either scrambled or fried, as you can see – I prefer the latter.
Hashbrown – crispy.
Pork bangers – (yes they serve pork) filling
Pork bacon – a little salty but I ate it with the egg so it was a good combination. :p
Mushrooms – fantastic!
Roasted tomato – didn’t touch it (the only healthy food on that plate was left untouched, yes)
Beans – (not on the photo) great!

Then I downed it all with 2 glasses of orange juice. Yes, it was a great meal and yes, I’ll try to drag the pseudo health-conscious boyfriend there for breakfast whenever I can.


I used my Entertainer voucher so we got one of the English breakfast for free. 🙂

    Yum! hash brown and mushrooms! I love hearty breakfasts. Roasted tomatoes are good, you should try it next time 😉 and lucky you, you got to drink two glasses of O.J. 🙂 This looks like a hearty and delicious breakfast. I would have to replace the pork with beef or turkey though 😉

      I do love roasted tomatoes but couldn’t eat it anymore after all the other things I ate from that plate. Lol.
