VERY IMPORTANT NEWS!

EyeOnDubai has very kindly alerted all readers of this blog to a new and very exciting arrival in Dubai.

Read on......


Cheeseheads take note!

Just a quick heads-up – if you’re a fan of the curd, get yourself to Tony’s Deli in The Village shopping centre on Jumeirah Beach Road (on the seaward side of the road at the Bur Dubai end, opposite McGrudy’s). But do it soon…

Why the excitement? Well, in the rather unlikely setting of a faux New York deli right now you will find what must be the finest collections of artisan cheeses ever assembled in this city. Something like 140 of the stinking things!

There’s a large British and Irish contingent, ranging across Lanark Blue, Mull Cheddar, Cooleeny, Cashel Blue, lots of stiltons, Shropshire blue, a sheeps cheese called the Old Hundreds and many, many more. France and Italy are both well represented, with a spectacularly gooey gorgonzola on display, excellent parmesan, various bries and camemberts, raclette, reblochon, munster and more…

Prices range from a reasonable 14.95 dirhams per 150gm to an eyewatering 250dhs, and you need to be there when the new manager is in – this cheesy cornucopia is his passion, and the other staff are willing but clueless. But visit soon – some of the soft cheeses are already walking of their own accord!

Cashel Blue. *sigh* - I was IN Cashel over the Christmas, it's near where wife Sarah's homeplace is. Cashel Blue, oatcakes and warm, strong, old Port. MmmmMMMMmmmmm...
