I have always said that brunching is a big part of Dubai weekends, it is after all a time for families to gather and unwind with good food. I also make most of the two days off to enjoy a meal that I did not cook. We were recently invited to the re-launch of Fab Family Brunch at Hawthorn Suits by Wyndham located at Jumeirah Beach Residence.
Hawthorn Suits family brunch took place at the hotels Flavours Restaurant which has access to the hotel pool, kids play area and outdoor garden. The place has a cozy feel with all the natural light coming in and the easy access outdoor gives kids the option to sweat it off by running in the big lawn.
The brunch spread was presented so beautifully and although not as lavish compared to others, food options were enough to satisfy once cravings. I personally fell gastronomically in love with the salad spread. This is probably the only brunch where my plate was filled with more salad than meat.
They also offer a decent seafood bar with oysters, mussels, shrimps and crabs. All tasted so fresh that my son V satisfied himself with a good helping of shrimps.
If you are not satisfied with the food inside, step out and have either freshly grilled chicken, lamb and lobsters. We are big fans of any food that is grilled so we kept getting more meat outside. They also offer some mains like Tandoori Chicken but I unfortunately did not get to try as I was busy stuffing myself with salad and grilled meat.
Kids menu consisted of the usual chicken nuggets, fish fingers and fish fingers with some rainbow bread. I think though that they need to work on the kids menu and think more than the usual.
Desserts offerings consisted of mousses, cakes, tarts and fresh fruits.
We recommend spending a relaxing brunch at Hawthorn Suites. It is great for families with children and not worry about them getting bored with a great play and outdoor area. Doesn’t cost much too and offers good food.
