Islanders brunch - Doubletree by Hilton, RAK

Brunch Reviews | In Unspecified on March 13th, 2017
200-300 AED
Escape to the islands on a weekend sojourn to the tastiest brunch in RAK. With giant blue letters at the entrance spelling out "Lets Brunch," you know they mean business right from the outset.   This beachside fiesta is all about modernity and freshness, but also provides an ode to the past with retro fitted memorabilia including a vintage mini cooper and Vespa scooter adorning the terrace.   THE FOOD   Vespa and Brasserie, the hotel's side by side signature restaurants are transformed for Friday brunch. Vespa is hollowed out and turned into a fresh salad and vegetable market where diners gather their own selection of greens and hand them to the waiting chef who will then chop, mix and garnish them expertly into your very own custom creation. The other features of the minimalist offering include a vast selection of cheeses & charcuterie, the fresh, made-to-order pasta and the wild porcini mushroom risotto served inside an oversize wheel of Parmigiano Reggiano.   0106cbc60b949fe9a1a8c7f86d9328bcf656ffa36d 0144148ab887407e8267230f8da2b721b4c49f768a 01561406453f847c2856aad5d8806ff23b15dde59a   One of the most impressive sights on the day was to be found just through the interconnecting door into Brasserie where the "fish shop" mounts an impressive display of local and international catches from the stable of the famous actor Gerard Depardieu. The daily catch included Red Scorpion Mullet, Monkfish, Yellow Fin Tuna, Razor Clams, Lobster, Mud Crab and many other deep sea delicacies which the chefs would then prepare either deed fried, grilled or flash fried to your preference in a number of marinades. The meaty monkfish and green salsa verde sauce was outstanding and a highlight of the day.   01972b537e1fee0e5eea3ca74753f5a0171dbe6a43 0108ffe5e2070025ba0d49b0519b4a6ac94c84affb 018e48a922f2b85bb0fef4963dbb20281dade1acd1   In addition to a generous salad bar there were more options including Roast Beef and Roast Duck with Yorkshire puddings, Cheese Fondue and a fresh and zesty fish tartar station. Outside on the terrace, the Arabic tent served up succulent grilled lamb skewers, lamb ouzi and kofta's while the Asian section played host to an authentically tasty Nasi Goreng and large fried prawns that you had to be quick to snare as soon as they came out of the fryer.   013b354a287d6851e754522fab9c19f5128decc0ff 01175bf08b5c16f6d80db118ea0c560798cee2dad7 01e479bf22afd89ad95b84c5fdaeaff5f1f7b70daa   THE DRINK   The brunch includes 3 packages in keeping with the island theme; The Hawaiian includes Unlimited soft drinks, mocktails & juices.
