The big brunch review: One Brunch at City Walk

By

Toro + Ko, Galvin and Lima join forces for a new courtyard brunch…

It would seriously be worth hitting our big brunch review spot just for Toro + Ko’s saffron-scented seafood paella, but it’s even more worth it when you’re able to eat it alongside selected plates from two other top restaurants. That’s the key to this new brunch at City Walk, where diners at One Brunch are invited to sit alfresco while flanked by What’s On Award-winning Spanish restaurant Toro + Ko, Peruvian venue Lima Dubai, and London import, Galvin Bistrot & Bar.

The brunch features three starters, one main course and one dessert from all three restaurants, which means guests share 15 dishes. Highlights include the salmon ceviche from Lima, chicken croquettes from Toro + Ko, and Galvin’s grilled harissa prawns.

But make no mistake, it’s Toro + Ko’s paella that makes this brunch stand out. Full of flavour and a little charred on the bottom, this paella is as good as any you’d find across Catalonia.

The restaurants also serve their signature tipples such as Toro’s sangria and Lima’s pisco sours, while a DJ spins classic Friday brunch house beats.

It’s a welcoming alternative to the loud and lairy hotel brunches while the weather is on our side. There’s also an after party from 5pm to 9pm on the second floor of each restaurant where drinks deals start from Dhs150 for five drinks.

The Square, City Walk, Fri 2pm to 5pm, Dhs350 with soft drinks, Dhs450 with house drinks, Dhs550 with champagne. Tel: (052) 7987292. onebrunch.com
