Last Friday I had the pleasure of being one of the first diners in Dubai to try out the Playhouse Brunch in Liwan restaurant at the newly opened 5-star property Swissotel (which has opened in Al Ghurair Dubai earlier this year).

As a mummy, I love restaurants that go the extra mile to keep little diners happy. A happy child means happy parents, and a genuinely chilled out brunch. There are quite a few brunches across the city that cater to this need with a dedicated kids play area, etc but none of the ones I’ve been to come even close to all the fun and games that’s to be had at the Play House Brunch!

Every Friday morning, my little girl Farasha and I have a special weekend ritual that we call ‘Girls Day Out‘. While daddy snoozes, we like to go out for a bout of girlie shopping, and often treat ourselves to a light lunch.

My daughter is only 7, and this means our dining options are often restricted to quick fixes that end with a free toy. However, I’ve recently discovered that one of my favorite Greek restaurants also has quite a specialized kid’s menu.

This was us a couple of Fridays back at Eat Greek Kouzina, The Dubai Mall. Was super fun shooting with the Eat Greek Kouzina and Le Pear Societe team, and they were so patient with my super hyper bunny. Click ‘play’ on the below Instagram post to see:

Just a week after I wrote a post entitled ‘3 Weekend Brunches Your Kids Will Love‘, we found ourselves at the Mazina Superhero Brunch at The Address Marina (Dubai), and I think this one definitely tops that list! Centrally located with a sprawling space extending to both indoor and outdoor seating, Mazina takes on the avatar of superheroes every Saturday between 12 noon to 3.30 pm.
