Tired of leaving a brunch not feeling that great from the excess amount of foods and cocktails packed with unnecessary calories? Summer is here, it’s time to shift away from those brunches and stick to foods that will leave you feeling energized, satisfied, and in good health.
Fashion TV Café, located on the boulevard of Downtown Dubai, offers a Detox Brunch every Saturday from 12pm – 5pm
With this brunch, you don’t have to spend a lot (cost: 135 dhs/person) to enjoy a mouth-watering, fulfilling 3-course meal. The classic yet original dishes will leave your stomach satisfied.
As you can see from the menu, you have the chance to select one of the two dishes that are offered for every course. Who doesn’t love a variety?
The brunch kicked off with a refreshing drink; my friend and I opted for the same Detox blend; the Berry Breakfast Antioxidants – the ingredients that were listed on the menu were too good to pass on. It consists of raspberries, almond milk, honey, frozen banana, flaxseeds, and ginger. Right? And it tastes as good as it sounds, if not better
Soon after the server (who was really welcoming and informative might I add) took our orders, our first dish came. The Marinated cheese with olive and fresh mint. This delectable delight was the perfect way to start our brunch, it is light but packed with taste. You cannot beat the pairing of cheese with olive and mint can you?
I love all soups. One of the best things in winter is to be able to have soups every single day and to get creative with the cooking. I have never tried a beetroot soup so I was pretty excited to give it a try. I’m pretty sure it took me 2 minutes before I devoured the whole dish. If I had to pick my favorite dish in this brunch it would definitely be the Roasted Beetroot Soup with Caramelized Beetroot cubes & fat free Fromage Frais; it will not fail to impress you. It is such a delightful soup with an earthy, sweet taste of roasted beets
For the main course, we decided to order one of each so we could taste both different options:
- Grilled Salmon – Mango Coriander Salsa, baked Mushroom Croquette, Cucumber & Radish Salad with Avocado puree
The salmon was grilled just like we asked (medium well). The different spices that the fish was seasoned with were the perfect combination. What really surprised me was the mushroom croquette, from the right amount of crunchiness to the soft and flavorful taste of the mushroom – yum! (ignore the obvious little piece of salmon that was eaten. What can i say? I could not resist having a taste before taking the picture)
- Seared Chicken Breast – Quinoa Salad and Grilled Watermelon, with a Honey and Pomegranate Glaze
I love a good sweet and salty blend. The honey and pomegranate alongside the appetizingly marinated chicken breast makes such a great dish. Such a juicy meal!
We were stuffed at this point (stuffed being an understatement). But the words “cashew” and “caramel” were calling my name. We decided to order the Poached Peach with a light Cashew Caramel and Creamed Cottage Cheese dressing that we could share. And oh my thank God we placed that order! The sauce did not fail to impress us. So flavorful!
