A recap of Bahrain Confidential’s brunch experience at the Waterfront Restaurant at the Grand Swiss-Belhotel Waterfront
‘Breakfast is a meal but brunch is a culture’ – we can’t get enough of this saying, especially when it comes to trying out new brunches around the island! If you’re looking for a recommendation, Grand Swiss-Belhotel’s Grand Friday Brunch is a must-try.
Overlooking the sea, the brunch was set at the Waterfront Cafe, with an extensive spread. The three-course meal begins with a variety of salad options. We personally enjoyed the eggplant salad (recommended by one of the chefs and made for a tasty surprise!), the egg salad with avocado, and the quinoa salad with roasted vegetables and feta cheese!
Moving onto the main course options, the Roasted Beef Brisket was a true delight with well-done slices of meat coated with a thick rosemary roasted potato sauce. We also tried the Herb Crusted Hamour, the cheesy Macaroni and Bechamel, and the Traditional Lamb Kabsa (known as a one-pot rice preparation). The key attraction though was the selection of Sushi with crab, tuna, vegetables, and egg!
Coinciding with celebrations for Saudi National Day, the brunch had a green theme – which was curated with organic greens and herbs. The dessert section was a treat to see with a green (white chocolate) fondue paired yummily with a slice of kiwi along with lime macaroons, green apple mousse, pistachio cheesecake, and some mint scented Cream Brulee!
Not only was the brunch a delicious spread of everything from vegetarian to seafood options but a treat for the eye as well! If you’re looking to try out a new brunch this week, we recommend you give Grand Swiss-Belhotel Waterfront!
