Say hello to La Tavolata, the new Saturday brunch at Bussola!
Don’t get me wrong, I love a brunch. I do. But I’m not always up for 12 hours of boozing on Friday, which ruins you for the whole of Saturday and leaves you still feeling pretty ropey on the Sunday. Well, this is where Saturday brunches come in!
My fave Italian restaurant, Bussola, has launched a new Saturday brunch, where for just Dhs250 you can enjoy a foray of the chef’s specials, paired with unlimited glasses of the house wine. Spend your Saturday sat on the stunning outdoor terrace with a glass of vino bianco in hand, whilst the sound of the DJ’s chilled tunes fill the air.
My mum and I sat down to a menu of mozzarella and tomato salad, charcuterie, mussels, scallops, calamari, ceviche and plenty more of their signature dishes. Everything was so fresh and light it didn’t leave either of us feeling remotely bloated or as if we’d over-indulged. The only thing I was slightly let down by, which I always am when it comes to Italian food, was the coffee-heavy dessert course. I really don’t like coffee, and although we were brought a delicious fruit platter to share, the other two sweet dishes were coffee-flavoured ice cream and a classic tiramisu – although my mum ended up devouring the tiramisu and said it was amazing, so if you’re a coffee fan then you’re in for a treat!
