As far as views go, brunch at White in Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort comes top of the pile. Glance outside and you’ll see a white sandy beach so beautiful you’d think you were gazing out across the Whitsundays. If you have people visiting from out of town, put them in the seats facing the windows and let the view do all the work for you.
And if the view doesn’t wow, the new monthly brunch series certainly will. The chic contemporary restaurant promises live music, festivities and fun activities for its second installment taking place on Friday November 15.
The food and décor will be island life inspired – think palms, tropical flowers, hula, coastal cuisine, delicacies, smiles and sunshine, with plenty of activities to keep teens and children engaged. Look out for a bouncy castle, and the roving magician.
For the November edition, the food will be inspired by South-East Asian countries including Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, and Vietnam. Expect a huge wok station alongside a very special Poke and oyster counter as well as a barbecue area, carving station and sushi corner. We also can’t wait to try the pineapple flambé.
And if you’re looking to keep the party going post 4pm, head on over to after-brunch party spot The Lounge, where all brunch goers receive a free drink between 4pm and 4.30pm.
