The Great Americana Food Fest at Downtown Rotana

Bahrain Confidential tries Downtown Rotana’s newest themed Friday Brunch!

The American food craze has reached epic proportions on Bahrain’s shores. Just recently, we embarked on a culinary journey through the United States of America at Flavours on 2, Downtown Rotana. The brunch appeared to be a foodies’ dream-road-trip across the 50 States of America. Traditional favourites from both coasts and a selection of legendary southern dishes were just waiting to be indulged in!

An all-American brunch with down-home favourites can be found at The Great Americana Food Fest. From the salad station, we truly enjoyed the New York Potato Salad as well as the equally fresh California Avocado and Chicken Salad. However, the Montana Apple & Bean Salad stood out from the rest!

With a wide variety of dishes, it’s hard to know where to start. We were impressed with the starter samplers served, giving us a preview on what to expect during the brunch. The plate included tasty dishes including an unexpected favorite: chicken and waffles. The mac and cheese, on the other hand, was noteworthy! The wonderful cheesy goodness makes it a staple side dish.

Comfort foods are staples for anyone craving for a hearty meal and a little taste of home… and Southern food brings comfort like nothing else. Fried chicken, corndogs and macaroni and cheese? They’re all right here. There’s also an abundance of goodness at the live cooking stations. The steak section was just as good as ever.

Finally, the sweet ending. Chocolate cake. Donuts. Live candy floss. These are just some of the desserts you’ll find at the Friday Brunch that definitely had us screaming for more.

We can say that Downtown Rotana have put a lot of effort into making the experience look authentic. During the brunch, the staff wore USA Flag-inspired aprons which was a nice touch. The service was exceptional; our glasses were never empty and were constantly being refilled. Aside from having our tummies full, the live entertainment also kept us cool!
