As my family and I stepped into the lobby of Jumeira Rotana and walked towards Olive Oil Restaurant last Friday, it was hard to miss the strains of the familiar song. We had been invited to try the Filipino Food Fiesta, which is Olive Oil’s new offering for their Friday brunch, and upon seeing that the hotel’s all-day dining outlet had been adorned with colourful buntings near the entrance and at the bar, it instantly put us in the festive mood. And the photobooth with the Philippines’ “King of the Road,” made us more excited to see what was in store for us.
Joy of Blessed and Blissed blog was also there with her family to try out the brunch. And although we often see each other during activities in Kids for Christ, it was only then that our kids had the chance to meet and bond.
The Filipino Food Fiesta offers a selection of food from the Philippines at Dhs69 per person. You just need to add Dhs15 for unlimited soft beverages or Dhs50 for selected but unlimited alcoholic beverages. And if you're a group of 4, you'll just have to pay for 3.
Another good thing is they change the menu each Friday. So if you want to go back every week, your palates and tummies won’t get tired of having the same food as before. There will always be something different each time you visit. Now that’s a fiesta, right?
