5 Must-Try Unique Brunches in Dubai
Dubai is such a dynamic city with literally thousands of eateries in every neighborhood. From Italian to fusion Asian, Greek to Purevian, family-friendly to wild ladies nights..and the list can go on forever.
When it comes to brunches, its a sacred ritual for all Dubai visitors and residents. The unique experience of glaming up at noon and spending almost half a day with unlimited fancy eating and drinking, is something the city prides itself for.
With such unlimited options around, choosing can be a headache! Therefore, I bring to you today 5 unique brunches that will suit all tastes and that you just can NOT miss when in Dubai!
AlForsan - Bab ElShams
This one had one of the most relaxed atmospheres I have ever seen. It is a family-friendly Arabic themed brunch with a massive buffet ranging from live cooking stations, Asian, Indian, an impressive raw Seafood selection and topped with all-time favorite Arabic dishes from across the region.
What I loved mostly about this place is the outdoors nature setting as well as the fact that it has something for every family member. So while adults can chill back and enjoy the yummy food and drinks, the youngsters will enjoy face painting, a small petting zoo and the popular Camel and Pony riding and other interactive activities too! It is a true Family fun day with lovely views and unique ambiance! Highly recommended.
AlBadia Picnic Brunch - AlBadia Golf Club
Tops my list everytime I mention a "Must-experience" in Dubai. This laid back, unique, understated picnic brunch definitely checks all the marks. A nice setting overlooking the massive AlBadia Golf Course and where You also get to choose if you want a traditional seating on the floor with a picnic blanket or a table. However, both comes with a full picnic basket with loads of choices of cold cuts, salads and appetizers, in addition to the live grill delicious selections and a lovely dessert buffet!
New Orleans Jazz Brunch - Zabeel Saray
First of all, Zabeel Saray is one of those hotels you HAVE to visit in Dubai. I mean, Tom Cruise was so mesmerized that he chose to shot the party scene that was supposedly taking place in a fancy palace in India, in this hotel's lobby! The Hotel also offers a Saturday jazz Brunch that will just transport you to a different time and place. The restaurant itself is incredibly impressive - probably one of the fanciest I have ever seen - and the food is to die for. A must-try from the buffet is the Fois Gras...Honestly, the BEST I have had all my life and I have had many in native French cities! The jazz music in the background enhances the experience and takes it to a whole different level!
Urban Picnic - Vida Hotel
Another picnic brunch, but this time its an urban picnic by the pool! You also get to choose from a table or a floor seating (I would highly recommend the pool side floor seating). This buffet boosts a wide selection of mouthwatering picnic friendly food as well as a few hot dishes and live cooking stations. The dessert was just O.M.G. and their mocktails were super delicious served in cute little glass bottles. This is one unique brunch where you can finish eating and take a dip in the pool!
French Fancy Brunch - Le Frioul, Madinet Jumeira
Located by the waterways in Madient Jumeirah, boosting divine views of the world-renowned 7-star hotel Burj AlArab, the French Fancy is an Al La Carte/sharing brunch that will surely leave you enchanted. From the interiors of the restaurant, the uber-nice outdoor seating, to the filling delicious menu with all time favorites like: Pizzetta Burrata and Fresh basil and Beef Rib with smooky glaze, its surely a place to try at least once every year. I also recently started heading to this spot for a quick drink on Saturday evening, where they also serve great Sheesha (hooka) collection! enjoy.
