While we were strolling in Dragon Mart 2 mall, we stopped by the food strip area as we hadn’t had lunch yet. This was our first time in the mall and to our surprise, there were plenty of restaurants to choose from. We opted to dine in Olives & Tomatoes restaurant after scanning through our Entertainer App for some food options.
One of the joys of getting a driving license in Dubai is that you get to travel to other places in the city that you usually don’t go due to the lack of transportation. One weekday afternoon, my wife and I finally visited Dragon Mart 1 & 2. Although, there’s a bus that go to Dragon Mart mall, we usually don’t have the patience to go to these places. But this time, we finally visited this side of Dubai and explored the area.

Olives and Tomatoes Review: Italian Restaurant in Dragon Mart Mall
We strolled inside the mall a bit and then decided to have some late lunch as we were getting hungry. Olives and Tomatoes is an Italian restaurant which is managed by Hospitality department of Saleh Bin Lahej Group which also handles restaurants like Chili’s and Romano’s Macaroni Grill. We noticed some similarities in terms of the menu and dining experience which is good because Chili’s is a restaurant that we often visit.

I ordered some steak with pasta while my wife ordered a grilled salmon. The restaurant provided some complimentary toasted bread with cheese and olives. It was good that we requested for another serving to which the staff immediately provided.

Our meal was finished quickly and we were glad that there are many options to dine out in this mall. We did a bit of strolling again and looked for some items we could buy for our flat.

We didn’t completely explore the mall as it was too huge. Well, this is another reason to go back.
