Food: Brunch at Sesame Dubai

My current Saturday routine is a good one - brunch at a new spot, a walk on the beach and an afternoon nap. I would say that I could get used to this but...I already have. It won't be long before we're back in the "indoor only" months so now is the time for exploring my still-sort-of-new city. Last Saturday we headed to Sesame Dubai for their breakfast menu. Located in Sunset Mall, the beach is a two minute walk away for a post-brunch wander and the menu promised tasty, healthy fare with a lot of veggie options.

While browsing the menu and taking in the decor I ordered a "black milk" - homemade cashew milk, black sesame seeds, banana and honey. It was delicious and a great alternative to coffee, although I would have loved to have seen some coffee-based drinks on the menu featuring the homemade cashew milk, too.

The decor is really lovely and its clear that a lot of thought has gone into make Sesame a place to linger - my phone did not go in the box but it's a cute idea! There are magazines to read and succulents decorating the tables. We arrived at around 10am (probably a personal best for a Saturday) and grabbed a booth in the naturally lit dining area (so important for Instagram-worthy food photos!).

I obviously had to have the avocado on toast with goats' cheese, honey and thyme. Such a good combination! The sourdough bread was delicious and the portion sized was perfect. My boyfriend had the potato rosti with poached eggs and avocado (I'm a good Instagram girlfriend and he is allowed to start eating while I photograph mine from seven angles). Service was speedy and friendly but it pretty much always is in Dubai!

We were the only diners at first but by the time we left a few more tables were occupied. It was a shame that such a lovely spot wasn't as busy as it should be but maybe when more stores open inside Sunset Mall that will change (and maybe we were just there painfully early for a Saturday morning). They are on Deliveroo, too, and while I'm trying to curb my Deliveroo habit I definitely want to order some of the lunch options soon.

  1. That box is a good idea, but then if you do that then you can't take pictures of the menu and share them on the internet- maybe that's why less people go there if it's on the internet less?


I ♥ comments. Questions? It's probably easier to Tweet me (@LilyLippy) as I'll reply faster.
