Salt



So this is what I did today. I woke up, checked social media, ate porridge, played with Roger and Rose, got ready, tidied the house, discussed the fact that I would quite like to lose about 3-4 kg with myself and then went to eat a deep fried chicken burger.




The burger that I speak of was from Salt. Now this is an Emirati brand that I have been following on social media for a few weeks. As a food truck concept they travel around the UAE and are never in one spot for long. This obviously makes them infinitely cooler than your average burger joint and I have been determined to locate them. After a tip off from Laura I headed over to Kite Beach in Jumeirah and sure enough, there they were.

The menu doesn’t seem particularly innovative at first glance – wagyu burgers and fries – but there are a few details packed in there that make all the difference. Probably the most famous/most WTF dish is the Cheetos slider. As a cheetos lover I am totally on board but it’s not your everyday combination. Let me tell you that it was absolutely delicious. The Cheetos soften within the bun and create a chewiness and texture that marries well with the chicken. I absolutely wolfed it down.

I love concepts like these. Nice branding, clever marketing and good simple, well-priced food. I really hope this is the start of more food trucks in the UAE. We just don’t have that scene yet and it’s a great way to support original non-chain restaurant businesses.  I have my fingers firmly crossed!

Now in order to ensure that this post is not entirely focused on Cheetos I will throw in a quick outfit segment. Sometimes all I want to wear is jeans and a white top…well not really sometimes, actually a lot of the time! It’s comfortable and also surprisingly cool.

The top is a basic from ASOS. I had the black and then I reordered another one in a value pack of two colours. The material is outstanding – it works well under a suit/with jeans but even better than that, it can be wiped clean! Yes that mayo on your burger that drips ungainly down your top can be eradicated with a swift wipe. Outstanding! It will seem like a very boring thing to order but trust me, you will wear them constantly!

Blazer: old ASOS
Jeans: Mango – Link!
Shoes: London Rebel (sold out I think) 
Bag: Furla – Link!

Next up either nail polish chat or a perfume review...let me know what you would prefer! :)
