Such was the case when we went to Marriott Hotel Al Jaddaf two Fridays ago to sample their brunch. Aptly called the Friday Lazy Brunch, diners can take their own sweet time trying the wide variety of dishes that are spread all throughout The Market Place, conveniently located at the hotel's ground floor.
While Hubby and our girls started filling their plates with the food from the nearest selection, I opted to take a look around to explore the choices first before diving in.
Boasting of international cuisines, there were dishes from Japan, China, India, and the Middle East. Since they had a live station where diners could ask for their choice of pasta, grilled seafood or meat, I asked for spaghetti carbonara because Sophie loves pasta, and grilled salmon and sirloin steak for me and Hubby. For our pizza lover, I asked one of the chefs to make a small cheese pizza as Caila looked on.
Generally, the food was delicious. With lots of options to choose from, diners will definitely find dishes they'll like and go back and take seconds (or more!) helpings of. And I liked that the food was spread out throughout the restaurant. It allowed us to walk around and explore The Market Place each time we emptied our plates.
The only thing missing was activities for the kids. Good thing Sophie was prepared with her own means of entertainment ☺
The Friday Lazy Brunch takes place from 12:30pm to 4pm. Prices are Dhs175 (with soft beverages), Dhs405 (with sparkling, house beverages, hops & cocktails), and 50% off for kids 6 to 12 years old. Children under 6 years eat for free.
A late brunch also takes place between 6:30pm and 11pm for those who like to start their Fridays really late ☺
Disclaimer: We were invited to try the Friday Lazy Brunch as guests, and although I was not obliged to do so, I wanted to share our experience on my blog. All views and opinions are my own.
