It is known that I have an unconditional love for breakfasts & brunches and as long as Dubai has something to offer, I’ll test the waters.
Last weekend I found a new place in the midst of the busy city buzz called THE BRASS.
Located at City Walk Dubai, this chic place opened up its doors last November and since then, it has been a local favorite. Why you asked? With its modern yet cozy vibe that features Arabic and European interior, great food and even greater coffee that cater to everyone it’s no wonder why it became an instant hit! I have visited a fair number of cafes around and The Brass is one of the best and unique places to go to – rustic (brass-y), chic, simply elegant.
Of course, it will always be about The FOOD. Since my sister and I were starving we had The Atlantic Salad – a mixture of fresh veggies, orange and poached salmon made to perfection. It has this bursting flavor that feels like a summer -breeze.
But I heard that this place has The Best French-toast in town!!! Well, you know what they say, I gotta taste it to believe it. And oh boy, IT IS THE BEST! French-toast with Nutella filling and blueberries may sound too much or too sweet but what I liked best was that even with that combo, it turned out just right. It wasn’t too sweet; just enough to make me want more!
And the star of all cafes… COFFEE! Considering the weather, we opted to try their iced brew. I had the Greek Frapp and Affogato – an Espresso over a scoop of vanilla ice cream. They mentioned the coffee beans are locally roasted and mostly imported from India. That means, the coffee has a strong aroma and a slightly more bitter taste than the usual. But I like bitter brews. Ha!
There’s one special bread that The Brass is famous for (aside from the French-toast), it’s The Brass Croque Monseiur. It’s made of thinly sliced turkey, aged cheese and pistachio brioche and baked to heavenly goodness! This, I think, is the dish that has a balance of savory and sweetness.
To end our gracious and unconventional meal, we had their dark and white chocolate pop! This one’s a little too sweet for me. Hehe.
Aaaand because I can’t get over the coffee, I had to try another one!!! My now-favorite-iced latte!!! IT IS THE BEST ICED LATTE evaaah!
Overall, we had a great time. The menu was a contender, the coffee was sensational, the staff were really courteous and I would absolutely come back here! 🙂
