Brunch is a big thing in this part of the world. Social occassions, family time, eating, drinking. Whatever your reason for brunch it’s sure to be a good time.
When the Al Bustan Palace invited my family and I to try their brunch at the Beach Pavillion who was I to refuse?!
Sitting down to lunch with sand between my toes and a gentle ocean breeze was a very welcome change from my usual Friday lunch times.
Thankfully we still have a few weeks of decent weather left to enjoy these outdoor treats until the summer is upon us again.
The selection of starters are a dream come true for the sea food lovers. From prawns and oysters to crab legs and smoked salmon they had it all.
And for those who like bubbles with their food there are options for that;
The main courses came from the grilling stations outside on the lawns and offered a selection of great quality foods like steak, lobster tail, chicken tikka, biryani and lamb.
After a belly full of nuggets and pasta from the kids selection Spencer moved on to something more grown up, and his favourite for the day, chicken Biryani.
My sweet tooth always gets the better of me and lures me towards the dessert selection. There were many delights to choose from and also ice cream much to the delight of my child who demanded a second helping.
After plenty of food it was Mummy & Spencer time as I took him for a walk along the beach and to stretch our legs.
With plenty of space to run and play whilst Mummy and Daddy are brunching there is also the option for the kids with a play area complete with bouncy castle, drawing station and balloon animals.
I watch on nervously as Spencer shrieks with delight as his Dad throws him on the bouncy castle.
He LOVED it!
As the sun begins to set it was time to pack up and head home with full stomachs and happy memories.
It was a beautiful setting and experience at the Al Bustan and definitely a place we will return to as a family. Visit their website for more details.
Have a great week.
