Movenpick Friday Brunch

Giveaway: Back to School Friday Brunch

Giveaway! Celebrate your kids milestone of adjusting well to school life with a Friday Brunch. We did just that at Movenpick Bur Dubai’s ‘Back to School Friday Brunch’. It was a well deserved treat for the kids and us parents too. They offer a wide variety of food selection to cater to every one’s liking. Some meals were even served in a tiffin box keeping up with the theme. A wheelbarrow carrying assorted seafood visits each table. A dedicated kids room located at first floor has a buffet which offers Movenpick’s Power Bites menu. I felt that the room needed more attention specially to keep younger kids entertained. Game consoles are available as well which kept the older kids occupied. The kids room is on the first floor while the buffet area was at the ground floor, I suggest that you accompany your children specially if they are under 6 years old. Join the giveaway over at our Instagram page, here.   Terms and Conditions: The gift voucher is for a Friday Brunch for 2 …

Friday Farmers Family Brunch at Bab Al Shams

We have heard great things about Bab Al Shams Desert Resort and Spa from friends who have spent a weekend staycation but we have not been there ourselves. While it may seem like a stressful long drive just to have brunch it became a fun scenic trip once we found ourselves driving in the middle of the desert, we played spot the camel first which made journey pass in no time. Driving in the resort took our breath away and immediately regretted not visiting the place before this brunch invitation. The resort look similar to the old forts we visited at Fujairah, it was just beautiful. Friday Family Brunch is held at the resorts Al Forsan Restaurant which won the Shorlist Award for the Best Family Brunch for 2017. The place had a beautiful outdoor area overlooking the desert, a big area for the kids to run around. Join us for brunch in the video below.

Fab Family Brunch at Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham JBR

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, …

Ronda Locatelli’s Family Brunch, All’Italiana

We were invited to the launch of Ronda Locatelli’s Family Brunch All’Italiana. The newest Saturday brunch offer at Atlantis The Palm Dubai was hosted by Chef Giorgio Locatelli himself. The brunch gives homage to family mealtime which promises to bring the taste of Italy in a warm and inviting environment where kids under 11 yrs. eat for FREE. Here’s a sneak peak of what we had that relaxing Saturday afternoon. Shared starters includes Calamari, Pizzettes, Bresaola and Burrata. Mains includes Italian staples of handmade ravioli and vegetable lasagna. It was delicious and makes you feel that you are having it at the comfort of your home.   We were all quickly drawn to the Sea Bream and Braised Beef while the kids enjoyed every bite of grilled chicken and lamb. Parents can have a relaxing brunch because they prepared activities to keep the kids busy. The Jam Jar Dubai kept the kids busy with painting sessions and they get to bring home their own artwork afterwards. They also got to make their own wood fire pizza and got …

Boulevard Kitchen Grilled Calamari

Lunch at Boulevard Kitchen, Manzil Downtown

The whole stretch of Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard offers various restaurants and has become a haven for food lovers. Our latest find came in a lunch invitation at Boulevard Kitchen of  Manzil Downtown. I gave our reservation details at the reception and they seem confused and surprised that we were there. A gracious lady asked where we want to be seated, the kids replied that they would love to sit outside, the courtyard area, she informed us that we can’t because it’s the smoking and shisha area. We settled at the corner table with a view of the open kitchen, the kids always enjoy watching the chef’s work. It was surprising that we were only handed a two pages lunch menu, refreshing as it gave an impression that the dishes were carefully chosen. They now have a 3 course menu selection with shisha for AED 119 per person from 12pm until 4pm. We started off with dishes from the Soup & Salad selection and chose Grilled Calamari Skewers and Smoked Salmon. Roasted peppers and tomato salsa with chili vinaigrette complimented well with the perfectly charred calamari. Even …
