Al Qasr, Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai
Prepare for decadence. The Al Qasr brunch is one of the priciest in town, but what you get in return is a fabulous experience, with the very best dishes from its three main restaurants, Al Hambra, Arboretum and MJ’s Steakhouse.
If you can, book an outdoor table. The atmosphere is that bit sweeter, with the band keeping things lively and cooking stations specialising in Asian cuisine sending all sorts of alluring aromas wafting through the air.
It’s all about the small samples. Be sure not to load up on any one thing. The baked Brie in MJ’s is a must-try, while the seafood bites in Arboretum are divine. Meat lovers should try the live barbecue outside, serving expertly cooked slabs of lamb and beef.
Love cheese? The enormous selection of fine fromage on offer will be sure to satiate your appetite, along with a spread of cold cuts that complement it perfectly.
Sweet teeth are welcome. If cheese isn’t your thing, there are plenty of dessert options, including some of the best churros this side of the Atlantic, as well as a plethora of sweet treats such as gummy bears and cola bottles.
