Hi guys...so its been a while since this plus size blogger did a food/restaurant review. So now that I am doing this blog post then you know it must be THAT good! Anyhoo, I was recently invited to Manzil Downtown to try their Levant brunch.
For those of you who do not know, Manzil is a boutique hotel located in Downtown Dubai with a very Arab look and feel. As you enter the hotel, there is someone offering you the Arabic coffee. Boulevard Kitchen is their all day dining restaurant which is where I tried their Levant brunch. Courtyard, which is like the outdoor section of Boulevard Kitchen is where I have been multiple times. I LOVE this place and if you haven't been here then you are missing out. It is a beautiful restaurant/lounge that serves quality food, shish and drinks. It is open from the top yet cool - this makes it a perfect place for the summer. I love it!
Now I have been there multiple times for evening shish catch ups, but never had tried their Levant brunch. As the name suggests, the brunch is all about a Middle Eastern feast. Hummus' of the world, Shawarma, Saj, Kunafa - everything I have grown up eating was there haha!
They have a wide spread of just the cold mezze; we literally took 45 minutes to try everything. A pretty decent section of hot mezze and mains too. I felt the mains were definitely better for non-vegetarians; not too many options for vegetarians in that section.
They even had a small Indian section offering the must have Chicken Tikka Masala. They also had some brunch items like croissants, tarts, cakes etc.
Obviously I was not going away without some dessert! I had the Kunafa and some French pastries and cake! Yummersss.....
But I think what makes this brunch amazing for me is the fact that you can SHEESH while you brunch! This is not one of your party brunches by the way. This is a brunch where you go to catch up with your girls, have some wine and sheesh with some good food! We at outdoor in the sofa area for shisha and with the coolers they had it was not bad at all!
