A good vibe from the Moroc Friday brunch at Movenpick Hotel - IBN BATTUTA GATE
Vibes - that's all this Friday brunch was for me - good vibes!
From the moment we entered we got a good vibe that this brunch was going to be different and we were right, The Moroc Friday brunch isn't your usual "over stuff" - "every cuisine under the sun" type brunch - its different. Good food, affordable and amazing atmosphere with the DJ spinning some lounge music to help start your weekend.
We were welcomed by Gino who offered to kick start our brunch with a refreshing cosmopolitan - again all good vibes :)
This was followed by a mojito and a margaritha - the vibe was still good! Each drink refreshing and complementing to the texture of our grilled items.
The vibe changed to great as soon as we started on the BBQ items - which essentially is all what this BBQ is all about.
The mini rib eye (with the option of pepper or mushroom sauce), the succulent prawns (with the option of a slightly over-powering saffron and butter sauce) all were the MUST-HAVE'S of this BBQ. The beef kabab, lamb kofta and a live shawarma counter accompanied with some corn on the cob, fried rice, onions rings and crispy spring rolls.
By the time we reached our dessert platter, was which an absolute win we realised that Moroc had definitely won us over - again!
What really stood out for me? Service, smiles and genuine hospitality.
Be it from the welcome of Jad, the lowdown of the brunch from Sarah or the detailed descriptions of our cocktails from Gino. This isn't the first time we've enjoyed the warm service of Movenpick Ibn Battuta gate and I'm sure it won't be the last!
The brunch is priced at AED 130/- with soft beverages and AED 239/- with house beverages, shisha is priced at AED 75/- and with the current weather now would be the best time to visit!
