Just the idea of visiting The Address hotel in Downtown Dubai makes one feel jittery and excited. So, was my situation. The moment I walked into the hotel, the lavish lobby and beautiful decor caught my attention. Upon reaching the restaurant, warm aromatic cuisine surrounded me from everywhere. That paired with the unbeatable view of the tallest building in the world.
I chose the non-alcoholic package for brunch and went ahead to explore different stations. Started off from the salad corner where all the fresh vegetables in different varieties were present. Followed by this was the bread spread where various kinds of breads were showcased. I tried so many types and ended up liking them all.
We were served a fresh jug of exotic fruits infused non-alcoholic cocktail which was a blend of gingerale, lime juice juice, sugar syrup and pomegranate juice. Absolutely loved this. There were fresh slices of strawberries and lemon with cucumber floating on top that gave this drink such a refreshing touch.
As I walked past the kitchen counter, I witnessed the head chef passing orders to the kitchen staff i:e his team and all of them roared “Yes Chef”. It was so surreal! almost felt like watching an episode of Masterchef live. All the food served was fresh and warm, especially the prawns. They were the best crispy prawns that I have ever tasted. Beautifully cooked beef and chicken kebabs, fancy hot dogs with mustard and ketchup toppings, honey glazed chicken drumsticks and the juicy mini burgers are just a few items on my hit list from this brunch.
When the mains were served on our table, the presentation of each and every item stood out. Especially the rotisserie chicken, that charred look on top with fresh pop of green vegetables was pretty amazing. The roast of the day was Lamb that was paired with roasted vegetables. Lamb was cooked to perfection, it teared away with a single poke of fork. The lamb gravy served with it was so luscious and intense, I even added some of this to the mashed potatoes and enjoyed.
One dish that particularly stood out was the Salmon en croute. Lightly seasoned salmon was enclosed in a fresh puff pastry and the moment you break it open into half, salmon is uniformly distributed inside. Simply loved this one!
For desserts, I had my heart set on the ravishing red velvet and fabulous chocolate fudge cakes. They were so pretty that it took me quite a few shots to get just that perfect one but even those won’t do justice to how deliciously constructed these cakes were.
We were served a dessert platter on the table that included Eton mess, ice cream, sticky toffee cake and signature crumble with custard. These were divine, my favorite was the signature crumble where you can actually enjoy the warm crumble melting in your mouth. I would also like to mention here that the ice creams were remarkable.
