It is 20 years since BurJuman first opened its doors to the hungry shoppers of Dubai, one of the first Malls to be built, if memory serves me right its Sister Mall Al Ghurair City was the first, however I could be wrong on that but I do remember visiting it in the 80's.

Back to BurJuman, following an absence of about two years we headed down to BurJuman last weekend, to see the hats, have some lunch and generally get ourselves reaquainted with a Mall which had been a second home to us when we lived in Mankhool.

Access into BurJuman is easy now that the Metro is actually complete and all the roads are open and free flowing, it took us just over 20 minutes to get down there, however it was a Friday and the roads are alot quieter. BurJuman has two parts to it, the original mall and the new extension. Both uniquely different but sharing the same "feel", warm, welcoming and relaxed.

The food court in the new extenson to the Mall is absolutely fantastic, the best food court in Dubai, it really does take fine dining in a shopping Mall to another level. The architecture is fabulous, I can't explain it to you, you just have to go down and experience it yourself. We has lunch at Cafe Spasso which was brilliant.

So many of us are now living in the "new Dubai" area of town and don't take the time to go and explore what real Dubai has to offer, BurJuman is one of Dubai's best kept little secrets.

Visit, you won't be disappointed
