Among the plethora of options available for brunches in Dubai, the Palace Downtown brunch is high on the list. The brunch is hosted in Ewaan restaurant which is located at ground level of the hotel.
The hotel is known for its elegant decor and majestic grandeur. We’ve visited more than a couple of times before (also made it to the Iftar at Ewaan earlier this year) and have always been happy with their service and hospitality so we had high hopes before visiting their 1001 Flavors brunch.
Upon entering Ewaan restaurant, we heard happy chatters of families gathered at their designated tables and a few making their way to their extensive display of food. The cuisines served are plenty so it is okay to get intimidated at first!
After being seated at our table, we are asked about our choice of drinks. The husband ordered their detox combination of Grapefruit and Celery, while I went for an easier alternative of Melon and Passionfruit. Both are great in their own way, but since I am one for sweet and tangy flavors, I chose the latter.
Highlights of the Palace Downtown Brunch:
The brunch has some fantastic live counters like the pasta counter, grill station, and Peking duck counter. Since we love our meat and chicken, we were spoilt for choice at the Arabic grilled counter that had freshly made tikkas and kebabs.
The carving station also served a decent fare and we found ourselves going back for their roasted chicken with a wide variety of sauces.
Some dishes that really need the spotlight were; the burrata from the salad section, sauces in all forms and all the ones we know of literally, and seafood counter with an arrangement that makes the price of AED 345 quite affordable.
Keep an eye out for the bread section that can just be called as a carb lover’s heaven, while the dessert section is one for everyone with a sweet tooth.
Ambiance and seating:
There are two types of seating available; regular tables and a private area for families with plush sofas. The ambiance is what you’d expect at brunches in Dubai, relaxed and friendly chatting of families and friends catching up on the weekend.
If we’re going back to Ewaan: We have been here before and will definitely go back again. Palace Downtown is one of the best hotels in Dubai and a brand you can trust. Read below for our past experiences with the hotel:
