18 April 2023
The London Social Brunch is a fine choice for those looking to dine along the JBR neighbourhood.
Breakfast may be called the most important meal of the day, but brunch is the most exciting one of the week.
If you enjoy the London foodie life, inspired by the melting pot that the English capital is all about - with mouth-watering Indian dishes, Arabic, 'Little Italy', Asian, and more, then the London Social Brunch at The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai, JBR should suit just down to the ground.
Come Saturdays, this sophisticated JBR spot serves up a stellar brunch between 1PM to 4PM, with options from free-flowing non-alcoholic drinks to house beverages and premium grapes.
The setting for the London Social brunch is stunning, overlooking the beautiful The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai, JBR gardens and Arabian sea.
The London Social Brunch executes the very theme its named after perfectly with fantastic attention to details, from the authentic telephone boxes and tube map place settings to the London landmark table decorations and the incredibly attentive staff dressed in original train driver uniforms.
Guests can check out 12 live stations all inspired by the different underground stations of the London tube, enjoy British-pop hits, and tuck into grills and seafood of almost all stripes on the menu.
We started the afternoon with oysters beautifully chucked by the chef followed by a selection of crisp salads and freshly-caught seafood.
The main course options were delicious, incorporating a full Indian section and vast Asian dishes all presented perfectly. In keeping with the London theme, the traditional English roast on offer included three different meat choices and all the classic favourites; Yorkshire puddings, roast potatoes, and other seasonal vegetables.
To end our perfect afternoon, we opted to end on a sweet note with a classic Victoria sponge cake and fresh scones along with a perfect pot of English breakfast tea.
The menu is far-reaching so you can expect a whole lot more besides, including beef wellingtons, fish and chips, and more. The icing on the cake are their fabulous signature summer cups and Instagrammable decorations.
This brunch is quickly becoming one of our top favourites in Dubai, for its breathtaking views, amazing ambiance, and great selections - we can't recommend it enough.
