So if I were to choose my favorite spots for Friday Brunch, I had to add Tresind to the top of the list. The whole molecular gastronomy concept is magically undertaken by plenty of restaurants in Dubai these days, but Carnival by Tresind takes the charm to the next level.
Earlier this month, they kick-started a Friday Brunch, which is more like a mega feast to the tiny little Rahma. Unlike, the regular Brunch, this was not a buffet, but a live foodilicious sorcery by the best in business.
Location & Staff: Over the years, I’ve been to some fancyish fine dining spots, but never have they welcomed us with extraordinary bubbles, ‘okay!! the inner child in me might be taking over’. But Tresind knows how to explicitly spoil their customers from head to toes. Now, I’m not so easy to be impressed, but the Staff, especially our attendant, was just a heartwarming treat, he took care of us from the start till the step out their doors.
Food: Honestly, one post wouldn’t be enough to justify, how enchanting & artistic the entire menu was, and that’s why I decided to vlog my entire experience. You really need a big appetite when it comes to tresind, because they have a master plan to make you eat the entire menu in one sitting, but you can be as lazy as you want. We started off at 1pm with a selection of bread and 4 kinds of butter and left at 5 pm only because we had a movie booked for later.
Apparently, Tresind doesn’t believe in a Drinks Menu, in fact, the only ask for your favorite fruits & what mood you are going for. It may seem weird but the experienced Drinks mixologist comes up with extremely amazing & refreshing drinks.
Truth be told, the never ending list of appetizers do leave you considerably full and when the actual main course arrive, you are staring blankly at the attendant. One thing, I’ve learned is, not to over eat any item, because the next best thing is around the corner. The Delhiite in me, just couldn’t get over the cold spicy Dahi Bhalla served with nitrogen power and the unique Waffle Dosa concept baffled me to my very core.
Hand’s down the entire menu is InstaWorthy, at times, I had to make the tough call between clicking pictures and enjoying the flavors, without any regrets, I selected the latter.
As we went ahead to the main course, you get a palate cleanser, Strawberry Murabba, and another feast on your way. From family picnic box filled served in tiffin boxes to popular demand of Punjabi’s – Sarson Ka Saag Aur Makki Ki Roti, everything is a trip down my favorite childhood memories.
Lastly, to roll down the final curtains, they dropped a giant bomb, literally. A massive bomb filled with all types of chocolate goodness & peanut butter awesomeness. Bewildered by the entire menu, we bid our goodbyes, promising to return very soon with my whole family.
Verdict: Though my love for Friday Brunches has increased tremendously, I believe they are often overpriced since people like me aren’t cut off for buffets and regretting at dinner. However, as the entire menu is served personally to you, with a relevant gap of 10-15mins, your stomach gets a nice little break to digest after every course. I won’t mind paying the amount for a 5-hour lunch, yes you read it right, reach at the doors exactly at 12 to enjoy the most of the menu.
