Brunching seems to have become a favourite pastime for those that love to get out and about on the first day of the weekend and let loose. Dubai is not short of options and while the choices vary from the sublime to the ridiculous, we thought we would err on the side of caution and try a brunch that is not over the top, but presents food you can eat and has that ubiquitous free flow of beverages at an affordable price. mylifestylenews writes.
Blessing – a unique name of our server and he was quite attentive and with his recommendations of the signature dishes worked a treat and had we not been told to order the beets and cauliflower, we would have passed on some great food that is a must try. A couple of signature dishes are not to be missed including some vegetarian dishes and the food was served in the usual sequence, freshly cooked and no issues about food temperature and how long the food has been sitting on a buffet, so a la carte brunches are the only way to ensure hot food is served at its optimum temperature and well controlled especially in quality.
These oysters are #3 in size and identified by its white and gold-flecked shell and meaty texture. Not big but just right for an appetizer and to whet the taste buds – delicious.
While you may be familiar with the usual Benedict on egg, this variation with braised short-rib, cheddar biscuit topped with a runny poached egg is a winner.
Thinly sliced quality beef tenderloin carpaccio with a piquancy to die for and leaves you wanting more.
Never underestimate a good fresh humble salad that can be a triumph of flavours, well tossed with the homemade arugula pesto as a great base ingredient accompanied by roasted cherry tomato and chickpeas to delight you with the juicy palate. Simply refreshing!
Despite the texture of the grain-fed Angus striploin which may not be as tender as expected, but it was well char-grilled and the taste is quite flavoursome,
Moving on to another grilled selection by picking this Hikory smoked brisket burger well paired with the crunchy purple slaw. It is delicious and a classic take on the burger with every ingredient resonating on the tongue.
The tender and juicy chicken thighs are well marinated with Moroccan spice and served on a skewer. A smoky flavour defines the delightful palate and we only wished that the portion was larger.
Two large size of U10 prawns thoroughly marinated with five spice, cayenne, garlic and oregano utterly resulted in a scrumptious smoky barbeque flavour that will truly delight your taste buds.
This vegetable of all vegetables could be turned into an absolute zinger of a dish. It is rich and ‘meaty’ and full of smoky flavour. A must order!
This may well be among the best side dishes of choice from the brunch menu that come with the melted crusty cheesy top slushing down the serving dish with the warm and nice moist savory macaroni underneath. Sinfully yours!
The humble lightly burnt pineapple is worthy of inclusion and while simply done, it is full of flavour and the perfect foil to all the rich meats we had eaten and topped with the citrusy passion fruit over a scoop of vanilla ice-cream.
A classic execution of this much-loved dessert, that was not too heavy with the egg and cream and we easily made short work of this sweet thing!
