What do you think of when you hear the word ‘brunch’? For many of us, it’s nothing more than a quick bite on Sunday mornings. A simple stopgap between breakfast and lunch involving eggs, avocados, toast and OJ – or an excuse to order a Bloody Mary or Mimosa with the first meal of the day.
Fantastic food, and plenty of it
To qualify as a decent brunch at any price point, the food choices on offer must be plentiful. You can satisfy almost any world food craving you happen to have – stacking your plate sky-high with devilishly delicate French pastries, wolfing down NYC-inspired burgers and fries or delving into a decadent Japanese street-food menu offering freshly prepared sushi, ramen, and yakitori. From Belgian waffles to Mexican mole, Turkish kebabs to Thai noodles, for the global cuisine-curious, at a Dubai brunch the world (and its food) really is your oyster.
Whether it’s the morning after the night before, a sparkling celebration or the prelude to an all-night party, there are plenty of refreshing ways to incorporate booze into your brunch plans. Usually, there’s a standard price for brunches that starts with free-flowing soft drinks, another for house drinks and a further tier for more premium beverages. This can encompass everything from craft beers and spirits to classic cocktails and bottomless bubbles. Cin-cin!
If the relentless parade of tantalising food and tempting tipple doesn’t grab your attention, perhaps sparklers, conga lines and an infectious beat will? With so many buzzing brunch spots vying to be the pick of the city, entertainment is often served as a value-added accompaniment. In its simplest form, expect a bit of live music, a DJ set or even a movie screening or jukebox on standby. But there are more elaborate options for the adventurous. How about diving into a ball pit for grown-ups, shimmying alongside a troupe of samba dancers, or having your very own karaoke party? At brunch, anything can happen.
Fun for all the family
Fancy bringing the little ones along? Many brunch spots allow kids up to a certain age to eat and drink for free – and some even have dedicated, kids’ only buffets and eating spaces. The food options are vast, with plenty of perennial favourites for mini foodies like unlimited mac n’ cheese, woodfired pizzas, and ice cream stalls. And it’s not just the food on offer that’s lavish. Loads of restaurants offer colourful play areas to corral the kids, with a myriad of activities, from superheroes and clowns to bouncy castles and petting zoos. The best part? With so much distraction on offer, you’re left free to enjoy a generous helping of peace and quiet, knowing your little darlings are having the time of their lives.
