With the UAE weather at its best and al fresco dining making a comeback, Buddha-Bar Beach Abu Dhabi is marking the start of the city’s most exciting season by launching an enchanting, original and elegant Friday celebration. Providing an elevated weekend gathering full of wonderful flavours and beautiful memories, The Nikkei Brunch invites guests to discover the magical tastes of Japanese and Peruvian cooking, with a curated menu boasting over 20 sumptuous and artistic dishes.
Served out on the wide-open terrace, located just steps from the pristine white sands of the resort’s private beach, or inside in the chic and warm indoors of the restaurant, the culinary journey can either be enjoyed as a relaxing afternoon experience or as an electric evening event. Buddha-Bar Beach’s skilful resident DJs enhance the mood with a melodic mix of deep house beats, providing the perfect soundtrack to an afternoon of grazing and socialising, before gradually building up the alluring tunes to instil a livelier vibe. This ensures that spirits remain high after the sun has set over the sparkling Arabian Gulf and that the sophisticated party continues on long into the night.
Treating food connoisseurs to the perfect combination of stunning views, exceptional dishes and uplifting tunes, The Nikkei Brunch is an otherworldly experience that delights all the senses. The rich and varied world of Nikkei food fuses authentic Peruvian ingredients with Japanese cooking techniques, and Head Chef Renzo Reyes’ exquisite brunch menu takes diners on an enlightening voyage through the most amazing aspects of this charming cuisine. Proving that food always tastes better when shared, the spread of tempting creations begins with a selection of light nibbles. The ‘From the sea to your plate’ collection is one of the signature platters, featuring a veggie ceviche, tuna midori ceviche, salmon truffle tataki and more divine options that have been created specifically for the occasion.
The hot starters then feature delicious bites like authentic beef aged gyoza and prawn tempura, before the main courses present aromatic palate pleasers including beef robatayaki and black pepper chicken with a choice of sides. Finally, the blissful menu concludes with a stunning choice of decadent desserts, featuring the rich and delightfully sweet 100% chocolate and assorted varieties of traditional Japanese mochi.
Immersive and steeped in fascinating Peruvian and Japanese culture, The Nikkei Brunch can be savoured every Friday. A day and night brunch, guests can choose to enjoy the experience from either 1:00pm to 4:00pm, or from 7:00pm onwards.
Packages start from AED 325 for food and selected soft beverages, and AED 450 for food and selected house beverages.
