We are suckers for brunch on weekends. It gives us an excuse to wake up late and spend those lazy hours eating. There’s a whole page dedicated to brunch spots in Dubai, which you can visit here.
So last weekend, we headed to the Funusual Brunch at Accents, Intercontinental Hotel. The brunch promises multi cuisine food on display, some live stations, and booze, of course, like how the meal is done here. All for a price of AED 445. (AED 295 for soft beverages is the one we opted for)
The restaurant is packed with large groups chatting away and the ambiance is pretty upbeat. A walk around the place and our eyes immediately go to the roast and grill section which looks busy with orders. We quickly place our order of some grilled fish and shrimps with roasted chicken and beef. All of which is sent to our table merely by mentioning our table number. The other stations include Cold Cuts and Salads, Seafood, Asian, Pasta and Risotto live station, and an Indian counter with just Butter Chicken, Roti/Naan, and Steamed Rice. (The main target audience are UK people The Chef says, hence the butter chicken I think)
Just a short preview of our #brunch yesterday at @icdubaimarina where they have a live #salad station, #roast, #Asian, #Indian, #Seafood counter which is displayed here. The #Funusual brunch is AED 299 per person with soft beverages which is a little steep but worth once a while. Check out our #snapchat or #instastories for more 👆🏻
Another section that grabs our attention is where a kind man is giving out tacos loaded with pulled beef and some readymade shawarma with manakeesh.
After all the lazy eating, we move towards the dessert counter which displays some very delicately made treats. Our favorites are the Chocolate Mousse, Creme Brulee, and Red Velvet Cakes.
If I’m going back: For a price of AED 295 per person, Accents doesn’t offer much variety. We suggest that they cut down their attempt to multi-task and focus on cuisines they do best.
Accents offers outdoor seating as well, which was empty because of the weather, but that might be changing soon due to the onset of the cooler months.
Every Friday from 1-4 PM, contact 04 4466654 for reservations.
