Dubai’s food scene changes as fast as life in the city itself, new places constantly opening and new concepts introduced.
Brunswick Eatery, Bar and Terrace, in the Sheraton Mall of the Emirates is one of these new choices. Previously Brunswick Sports Club, which opened in 2016, has been recently refurbished to create a relaxed and social eatery. As soon as you enter, you immediately forget the bustle you have just left behind of a busy Sheikh Zayed Road or a crowded shopping mall.
A new menu was launched at the start of May offering a fantastic range of bar snacks, sharing dishes and sumptuous mains. With so much choice and all sounding really appealing, choosing was tough.
To start, the tempura cauliflower was a pleasant surprise, nicely spiced and with a delicious curry mayonnaise, the habachi chicken wing skewers were exactly that, tender chicken wings, still on the bone coated in a teriyaki sauce and sesame seeds. However the stand out was the simple garlic sourdough with a healthy spread of cream, parsley and French cheese fondue.
The same tasty sourdough was the base of the Summer truffle pizza topped with a combination of pecorino and ricotta cheese. The kind of pizza that makes you want slice after slice.
Our mains were a very generous portion of Wagyu tartare perfectly seasoned and served with a quail egg, a huge eggplant baked in salt and stuffed with barley, parsley and crumbled feta cheese, which was a meal in itself, and the beef short rib, which was up there with the best of them. Perfectly cooked, the meat easily fell off the bone and flaked into pieces as you picked it with your fork. The bourguignon sauce added the right amount of complimentary flavours.
Desserts are always hard to say no to, so we just had to try the peppermint crisp soufflé, a chocolate soufflé with peppermint custard, and I think we chose well.
Brunswick seems to have it all, a relaxed atmosphere and enough choice on the menu for everyone and every occasion, all of which are tasty and tempting. Prices vary widely depending on what you order but expect to pay around Dhs 200 per person not including drinks.
