6 great things to do in Dubai this week: April 18 to 21
Welcome to another week in this beautiful city…
It’s Sunday again and with a new week comes new possibilities, new places to discover and new things to do in Dubai. Here are six of our top picks.
Sunday April 18
1. Get a slice of authentic pizza
If you’re looking for a little more pizzazz with your pizza, look no further than brand new restaurant Moon Slice, which recently opened in Al Wasl. Hugely popular Dubai chef Reif Othman was consulted on the design of the menu and customers can expect some seriously innovative ‘space’ pizzas such as the ‘Fruity di mare’ with shrimp and octopus carpaccio, fontina and BBQ aioli. They’re served up on a crispy ‘Naples’ base.
Moon Slice, Dar Wasl Mall, Al Wasl Road, Dubai, Sun to Tues 12pm to 11pm, Wed 12.30pm to 11pm, Thurs to Sat 12pm to 12am. Tel: (0)4 239 8363. @moonslicepizza

3. Indulge in a Ramadan themed dessert
To celebrate Ramadan, Brunch & Cake has created four Ramadan-themed desserts and they look amazing. Choose from the saffron milk cake: A richly soak saffron flavored milk with gold crispy crepe, topped with a Muhalabia flavored cream, or the sticky caramel date pudding: A combination of salted Caramel and sweet dates baked into a hot pudding, topped with our homemade chocolate chip cookie served with ice-cream and creme anglaise.

4. Give back to the community
The second edition of Ramadan Heroes has arrived to promote the spirit and values of giving among society members. The initiative invites community members to contribute by purchasing Iftar meals or providing Ramadan boxes of food supplies through the online food ordering company. It will be delivered safely in cooperation with ERC and UAE Food Bank to beneficiaries’ houses across Dubai.
