Went to Dai Pai Dongs new Friday Night Hot Pot Brunch last night and it was great! The hops and grape package was good value for money and the food was typical DPD standard - delicious! You can choose between spicy or regular soup, or opt for half-and-half as we did. There is a selection of meats and fish (chicken, beef, meatballs, oxtail, mussels, scallops, prawns, fish sticks and fish balls) on the side to choose from, plus you could also order beef and other fish to add to the soup. There was also the usual salads - lettuce and veggies, but also about 4 different types of noodles available too! Not only that but there was also lamb and chicken skewers, Sui mai and duck dumplings, as well as vegetable spring rolls all included too! The included dessert was a nice fruit platter. Service was exceptionally attentive and we were well looked after by Leo, Manu, Thin Thin and Htoo!
If you like a Chinese Hot Pot, or have never tried one, get down to Dai Pai Dong at the Rosewood Hotel (joined to Galleria Mall) on a Friday night!
A diverted stop here this morning on our way to the usual spot! What a find!!!
A beautiful elaborate take on breakfast with spiced scrambled eggs and bread rolls and a French toast that melts in your mouth!
Karak tea and latte’s painted with beautiful swan like pictures just made it all that more elegant! And the final bill was a welcomed surprise, will definitely be back to this little gem in the future ☺️
(They do offer lunch, evening and children’s menu’s too)
A big shout-out to the team at Stock Burger today. Andrii made us three beautiful freak shakes with flair and enthusiasm, with fabulous attention to taste and looks. It was just so great to see someone so into their job and taking pride in their work - and then delivered so beautifully. Nice one guys!
The brunch kicks off with a welcome drink in the lobby where you can sip on a gin or a juice while enjoying the tunes of the resident pianist and admire the colourful display of desserts before diving in. Pro tip: Plan your brunch wisely – save space for dessert!
Chef Roland and the team have worked hard at revamping this brunch and the results have been amazing. An international brunch with a focus on Asian/Thai flavours, the choice and quality of food was impressive. Thai curry station (green or red), Foie Gras station, live pasta station, fresh dosa station, freshly carved rotisserie selection, caviar station (wasabi caviar anyone?), oyster bar and excellent seafood selection featuring fresh lobster, oysters, scallops, prawns and more. The highlights on our table were the Thai curry, the tender juicy roast beef and the pasta but I can guarantee there’s something for everyone! FYI – the chefs for the Thai food come across from Benjarong restaurant so you know it’s going to be good.
Waiters also bring around teaser bites to try from the menu of the soon to be opened Namak - an Indian fusion restaurant.
Desserts – I told you to remember this part! The Um Ali, Rhubarb crumble and crepe station are not to be missed, especially topped with delicious Movenpick ice-cream (real vanilla!) and some chocolate from their chocolate fountains.
There are a couple of bar stations – I spotted some Bloody Mary’s and saw them create a few interesting looking mocktails. Upon request, the bar tender made a delicious Mai Tai with his own personal twist.
At AED 235 net for basic and AED 335 net with house beverages (hops and grapes), this brunch is excellent value for money. 0-6yo dine complimentary and 7-14yo are AED 85 net, however, there are no kids activities at this brunch.
