The Red Sun Brunch at Katana Dubai

Love Japanese cuisine? I’ve got the perfect Friday brunch suggestion for you, complete with a fantabulous view of the majestic Dubai Fountain and the Burj Khalifa. With a red carpet welcome right at the doorstep and artistic interiors that will awaken the Instagrammer in you, Katana Dubai is a hidden dining gem in Address Downton, Dubai.

Every Friday, Katana Dubai hosts its Red Sun Brunch from 12 noon to 4 pm where diners get served a 25-course tour of three popular styles of Japanese cooking.

Some of my favorites from the brunch included the Salmon Tataki Salad (for which the chef kindly served the salmon on the side as I was dining with a vegetarian friend), the Moriawase Tempura (an assortment of vegetables and seafood deep-fried with a crisp golden brown tempura shell) and an array of juicy charcoal-grilled skewers. However, the star of the brunch was the absolutely divine, decadently marinated Short Ribs in Asian Marinade.

The Red Sun Brunch runs from 12pm until 4pm every Friday at Address Downtown, and costs AED 295 per person including soft drinks, and AED 395 per person including house beverages and sparkling. Ask for the sake selection for a truly authentic, Japanese experience.
