If The Beegees, Elvis Presley and Jonny Cash are your ideal brunch companions, be sure to dig in at the ‘Little Suzie’ brunch on Fridays. This ‘American diner’ style brunch has a great retro, 1950s vibe, complete with waitresses on rollerblades and Mac n Cheese!
The brunch hosted at Medley restaurant at Pullman Deira City Centre, under Executive Chef Andreas, aims to make us travel back in time and enjoy the culinary heritage of 1950s America – a fresh and exciting concept that makes it stand out in the crowded brunch options in Dubai.
The appetizers were mainly different types of salads with a range of toppings such as tuna and chicken among others. However, the main course buffet spread was far more exciting with burgers, hot dogs, fries, wings and rings, BBQ’s, roasts and more.
The chefs on duty offered made-to-order omelets and I loved the bagel station, which churned out delicious cream and cheese bagels – very close to the ones I had in New York.
The brunch is family friendly with a dedicated “little wonderland” for kids and a variety of mini bites and desserts at Kid’s corner. There’s another ‘Little Italy corner’ with selection of veggie bites, pastas and salad bar.
My favourite section was the dessert bar, ofcourse- The variety was mind-boggling with classic American pies, tarts, decorated cupcakes and brownies. For the more health conscious, the dessert section offered fruit as well.
In all, the concept is brilliant and a welcome change for the city’s brunch-scape. Highly recommended for a slice of the retro American kitchen.
