Brunch – It’s not quite breakfast, and it’s not quite lunch, but it’s as popular as ever.
Dubaians love nothing more than a bottomless, vibrant and virtuous brunch. It’s a great time to embrace the mid-noon meal. Friday and Saturday noon in the city are now all about scoffing and scrumptious food – washed down with cocktails and mocktails, naturally and I can’t think of many more delicious ways to start the weekend. But with quantity comes varying quality, and no one wants to waste their weekend on boring food. With that in mind, we’ve selflessly brunched our way at Mint Leaf of London.
Mint Leaf of London epitomizes the laid-back Dubai Chic attitude, in a space that a cross between a fine dining and coolest lounge diner. Their weekend brunches offers a Indian food gala with 6 course menu showcasing flavorsome curries , kababs and lip smacking good desserts to go with signature Mocktails.
Highlights from the Brunch
- Non-Veg Kebab platter comprising of Malai Chicken Tikka , Tandoori Chicken Anarkali & Classic Lamb Seekh Kebab.
A great kebab is a wonderful thing – a perfect marriage of succulent & subtly spiced meat and much of their enduring appeal lies in their simplicity. This scrumptious platter of kebabs was moist and with nicely charred edges, and the addition of tangy & chilli-spiked flavors. It’s nothing better for whetting the appetite than watching the Chefs flipping meats on the grill – unless it’s the mouth-watering aromas. Absolutely authentic & delicious!
- Veg Tandoori platter compromising of Zaffran Malai Broccoli and Paneer Kaju ki tikki
Mint Leaf of London is hard to beat for truly authentic and vivid flavors. This Veg platter could lure the carnivores permanently. The taste and texture of Paneer Kaju ki tikki was absolutely flawless. On other hand, Zaffran Malai Broccoli was perfectly seasoned with well balanced flavors.
- Curry-licious main course spread
The main course spread makes this brunch menu a pilgrimage spot to all curry lovers to devour their authentic curries, from velvety Dal Makhani to boldly flavored Khatta meat and lusciously textured Palak paneer to creamy and rich Chicken hara pyaaz accompanied with buttery nans & saffron rice.
There’s saving the best until last, and then there are these showstoppers. Whether you call it pudding, dessert, or sweet course, there are few sights more gratifying than a calorie-laden, drool-inducing, end to a meal.Everybody knows that the best part of any meal is dessert – no argument note! This Indian dessert platter comprising of Mango & Chocolate Mousse,Almond cake,Gulab Jamun & Ras Malai were a sinful delight to eyes and palate. Indian desserts are a classic for a reason, and that reason is because they are delicious when made right , apparently this spot nailed it.
Peach Julep is the best pick from the Mint Leaf of London’s Mocktail scene.Brimming with beautiful Indian flavors,this mocktail is particularly lovely and completely refreshing.
Brunch, by name and by nature, is the very best of both worlds. Better than breakfast – in that it affords a weekend lie-in and it generally allows one to eat more – and more leisurely than lunch. Mint Leaf of London Brunch reveled few of the best blow out meals. A relaxing weekend treat with live musical instrument performance. With impeccable service and off the wall Indian food options , this spot has to offer possibly one of the best brunch in town.
