Accents at InterContinental in Dubai Marina hosts the Funusal Friday brunch from 12:30 pm-4:30 pm every weekend.
Our invitation to the Funusual ( fun+unusual together you get an experience that is meant to be both unexpected and entertaining) Brunch at Accents had us curious. Never having heard that term before, we booked our table for this Friday brunch in Dubai.
The place was buzzing by the time we arrived. Although there is seating indoors, it is the terrace that you must reserve. There is a wonderful view of the water and the boats that cross the Dubai Marina. The terrace is wide and spacious with plenty of comfortable seating.
The buffet style brunch has food stations inside made up of world cuisine. There is a salad and seafood bar that offers the freshest ingredients. One of our favourite was the flavourful Asian food that included noodles, hunan beef, mango salad and a spicy chicken amongst other dishes.
We also enjoyed a medley of marinated shrimp, tandoori chicken and beef ribs and have them cooked to order and brought over to our table.
If you are in the mood for something more traditional then do try the chicken, lamb or beef roast to pick from with an entire variety of sides including gravy, yorkshire pudding and roasted vegetables.
There are burrata pizzas and traditional Lebanese breads being baked in front of the guests in the wood oven. Let us warn you that it will be hard to walk past this counter if you love your carbs!
Not usually fans of dessert, we were quite impressed by the selection. Although you can order crepes or enjoy some of the bite-sized cakes and pastries, we recommend the flower pot. A quirky and innovative idea, the pastry chef builds chocolate mousse and edible flowers together in the style of a plant and serves it in a ceramic pot.
There is a live band that creates a party-like atmosphere and the friendly servers and chefs are always around to make sure everyone is being taken care of and having a good time.
Funusual Friday Brunch in Dubai takes place every Friday from 12:30 pm-1:30pm and costs 295 with soft beverages, 395 AED with house beverages and 595 with house beverages and bubbles.
