There are brunches, and then there are Yalumba brunches! Of all the places I’ve dined in Dubai, no one seems to have perfected the art of a Friday Brunch like these Aussie geniuses. Apart from a gastronomic lineup of spectacular food and bubbling bevvies, Yalumba’s latest ‘Brunchology’ includes wacky games and chart-topping music from the ’80’s and ’90’s. Yalumba is the only brunch I’ve been to where random diners get up and dance together!
“Fusing together the Friday atoms, tinkering with the usual brunch molecules… we have mastered the science of brunching! Some call us mad, we prefer… eccentric!” – Yalumba.
When we walked into Yalumba for brunch last Friday, I saw a few tables decorated with balloons and festive streamers. ‘What a lovely day to celebrate a birthday’ I thought. And then as I walked on further, I realized the party vibes were spread throughout the venue. Everyone had balloons and streamers, and fun party props! This looked like just the place to be to start off the weekend on party mode!
Yalumba is an eclectic Australian restaurant located on the Ground Floor of Le Meridien Hotel (Airport Road, Dubai). We tried out Yalumba’s Bubbly Brunch, which runs from 12.30 pm to 3.30 pm every Friday, and starts from AED 499 per person inclusive of house beverages and champagne.
