Jumeriah at Etihad Towers.
Alright, so I’ve had a pretty solid top 3 of brunches in Abu Dhabi. It’s been pretty solid for a year, but today, that list got blown to smithereens!
Have y’all heard of this spot at Etihad Towers? Nahaam? I’m sure you’re like me. You’ve probably heard of it. You’re probably thinking that it’s a bit out of your way, or it’s not quite in your budget. Trust me, I’ve been there. I was there yesterday. But today? Today I’m a believer. Not a Belieber, but a believer.
We showed up at 12:20 today and were shown to our seats near the pool. We walked around the buffet and were amazed!
The seafood selection here is off the charts! I know what you’re thinking. How much seafood could they possibly have. Take the amount that’s in your brain, and double it! Then take that, and DOUBLE IT AGAIN! The seafood selection here is out of this world! Have you ever seen a chef take a full tuna, slice it up, and then eat that tuna? I hadn’t either. Until today. And let me tell you? It’s every bit as glorious as you would think it would be.
I know what you’re thinking now, but what about the desserts. That’s a valid question. It’s a question that many will ask. And it’s a question that I’m ready to knock out of the park like Barry Bonds in the 2002 MLB Playoffs. Sit down, grab a blanket, maybe a bottle of water and let me tell you some stories about the desserts.
You want ice cream? They got it. You want cheese cake? They got it. You want chocolate cake? Done. You want fruit? Come on, yeah they got it. In droves! You want crepes? Done done done! Get with it people. This dessert station is out of this world.
I mean, at this point, if I haven’t convinced you, and these pictures haven’t convinced you, you may as well be my mother-in-law, who doesn’t like me and won’t ever admit that I’m right because I married her daughter and—- sorry, where was I?
Oh yeah, just go to this brunch. Eat it. Love it. Live it. Kids under 12 are free, so you other parents have literally no excuses. Enjoy the pool access afterwards. Extend your day. Pretend you like your family. If I did it, you can too!
