Asian Fusion Tastes

While on holiday in the Dominican Republic, we had the opportunity to try a number of restaurants and tastes. My husband wanted to try the Asian Fusion and we were lucky enough to get a booking.

As we approached the restaurant, it looked promising. I loved the entrance to the place, the night lights making it appear inviting.

I enjoyed the look and feel of the restaurant once we had entered the space. The lighting was intimate and the decorations were a delight to look at.

The food was beautifully presented.

The tastes, however, were far below what we expected. As I said to my husband, it is best we don’t go to a restaurant that offers food which we cook at home. We are disappointed every time.

Do you enjoy tasting Asian Fusion food?

Christmas Tree Glory

The resort we stayed at in the Dominican Republic featured a beautiful Christmas tree in the lobby of each hotel.

I loved the vibrant red that had been placed on the tree as well as the glittery decorations.

At night time, though, the tree’s glory really shone through.

I could never have a Christmas tree like this at home as we do not have the space. So every time we passed the lobby or entered in the space, I enjoyed the tree’s beauty.

I saw this tree most often as it stood in the lobby of the hotel I stayed at. I did have the chance to see many other decorated trees around the resort but this was the one I saw the most.

Do you prefer the tree lighted or unlighted?

Shell Lines

While at the resort in the Dominica Republic, we had the opportunity to eat at a number of restaurants. While waiting for our ride back to our room after eating dinner, I could not help think of Becky’s challenge as I looked at the curtain of shells behind the bench.

I loved the shell curtain and looked a little closer at the objects. I could not help but wonder where these shells had been found as I had seen none on the beach during our walks.

Maybe we should have tried walking early in the morning but, after our late nights, I found it a little difficult to get up at 5am.

As we had not seen any shells in the wild, I was pleased to have at least seen these.

Have you seen a curtain of shells?

Lobby Lines

When we arrived at the lobby of the hotel for our trip to the Dominican Republic, I could not help admiring the centre piece.

I loved the sculpture and I admired it each time we passed by. I lenjoy seeing sculptures giving character to the surroundings – especially those of a tradition gone by.

Do you admire sculptures in your environment?

Buffet Lines

At the resort we booked into when we visited the Dominican Republic, we had the opportunity to eat at a varied number of buffet selections. The first buffet we visited was the one nearest to our room. The selection was good and we enjoyed our meals there. I loved the slatted walls and the holiday feel about the space.

After a couple of days, we discovered a larger buffet. A was a bit of a walk from our room but one that was manageable. When we first entered the room, I loved the clean lines of the place and it was definitely our most favourite place to eat. (This was the place that had the amazing dessert selection).

We had access to a third buffet restaurant which we tried out and, unfortunately, I did not take a picture of the environment. The place was buzzing but we did prefer going to the ones nearer to our room.

Do you enjoy eating at buffet restaurants?
