La Parrilla @ Jumeirah Beach Hotel
Updated on 30 September 2015

La Parrilla, the authentic South American restaurant at Jumeirah Beach Hotel, has launched a family-style brunch with Latin flair. With a weekly rotating menu, you can enjoy a culinary tour of Latin America and award-winning dancing from an acclaimed Colombian duo. It’s an amazing performance of high energy and rhythmic moves of the tango, merengue, salsa and bachata.

What we ate
Set on the 25th floor with sensational views of the Burj Al Arab and Arabian Gulf, La Parrilla serves brunch to your table. Dishes included torta de quinoa and arepa de pato for starters, and perfectly grilled meats and seafood for the main course. The mains were accompanied by tasty sides such as Brazilian-style baked black beans and roasted vegetables with salsa, and all the dishes can be ordered as often as desired. On our table of 4, everyone liked their meats cooked differently, so we were delighted with the hot stone plate for those who prefer things a little more well-done! A seasonal cheese platter finished the meal nicely, while desserts including dulce de leche with banana and acai and white chocolate cheesecake satisfied the sweetest of cravings.

Verdict
Everything was beautifully cooked and very tasty, the views and dancing were absolutely incredible. This really is a must-do brunch with a difference!

Price
Brunch The Latin Way is available on Fridays from 12:30pm to 4pm. Priced at Dhs 325 per person for food, soft drinks and mocktails or Dhs 425 per person for food with house beverages, selected cocktails and sparkling grape.
