It apparently seems like these days brunches are all what I am reviewing. But let me assure you that there are others coming up very soon.
So honestly when Zomato invited us for a brunch meetup at the Seasons in Hotel Movenpick located on the Corniche, we were frankly not that excited since having visited the restaurant on a previous occasion, we had found the cuisine only so-so.
However the brunch I must say was a different story altogether.
There was a lavish spread ranging from salads to sushi to a live laksa station,a live tempura station and even a waffle counter. To add, the buffet also comprised of soups, several other continental dishes, a cheese counter and desserts.
Another major highlight especially for parents would be the exclusive kids section. Movenpick surely got this one right because they surely knew that the parents would be happy and contented customers if their kids were kept busy and entertained. I loved the whole arrangement with the walls leading up to the area being lined with spectacular Disney posters and a variety of kids’ food and yes the ultimate, a huge jumping castle. The area also came with adult supervision. In my opinion, I would be comfortable with leaving kids above the ages of 6 in the area as the whole section is slightly distanced from the main restaurant due to which parents would be unable to keep a constant eye required for toddlers and pre-primary school kids.
The food stations were arranged quite well and served in the centre of the restaurant, ideal for customers seated on either end. Service also was a definite plus.
Coming to food, I absolutely loved the live tempura counter that I lost count of the number of plates that we would have ordered (rather I would have found myself in a quite embarrassing position had I counted ! ;) ) The tempura batter was perfectly light and crispy with the prawns cooked to perfection. Infact I wouldn’t going back to the restaurant for just them alone. It wasn’t just the shrimp, even the vegetable tempura made from red peppers, aubergines were also amazing.
Another interesting counter for an international buffet was the one serving Laksa- primarily a Malaysian spicy noodle soup in a coconut broth with beautiful aromatics such as coriander, galangal, lemongrass among many others. This especially would be perfect during the winters. This was being served hot and to order.
Also a hit among the sweet lovers in our group was the live waffle station being served with fresh cream, nutella, strawberries.seasons
Overall, we had an amazing time with the Zomato team keeping us entertained with animated conversations and Movenpick with the food.
