The “Art of Brunch” offers an array of international delicacies served in there live cooking stations accompanied by a distinctive performance from their talented pianist. I was there for the Friday Brunch and it was a delicious spreads from all the continents, the place has so well bought the whole cuisine in one Brunch away. I was led by Debjani, the most chirping host ever experienced, she knows her food well and took me on my tour to the place.

Let me start with the Cold Cuts as i have to start from somewhere, Orange Cured Salmon, Smoked Haddok, Beef Breasaola, Beef Peppered Pastrami, Smoked Duck Breast etc. I often take cold cuts with breads and the various drippings. The start was a delicious treat and i know my journey has begun at Fountain.
Their seem to be a wide spread of Salads, it was fishing in a wide sea so i am going to mention my very favorites over here. Mutable, Fattoush, Hummus etc.
Mohammara, prepared with fried peanut, chilli paste, corn, flakes, olive oil, salt & pepper and drizzled with olive. Wow what a perfect Cold mezze i guess after Hummus this one is definitely going to be my favorite.

The spices, cutlers all were kept as decors, so Indian in vibes a big thank you to Fountain for reviving the culture in the International spread. such delicacies and a huge wide spread to really choose what to go with the first.
Chicken Tikka Masala, Paneer Tikka Masala, Roti and Rice were all very delectable and i specially felt the Paneer they used was the top quality and it really melted in my mouth with a hint of Milk flavored in it.
Malai Kebab Chicken, so perfectly done and the spices infused till the last bite. The Chicken all juicy, tender and succulent. A delicious treat to oneself.
The Sushi counter was on the other side of the restaurant and it almost took the half of the place, all types of Vegetarian and Non Vegetarian, Sashimi, Nigiri kept and i loved the Sushi bridge where all my favorites were placed. A picture worth sharing.
Dimsums has always been my favorite ever since it has known to me and in Dubai its very difficult to find the best ones. But at Fountain they have really recreated my childhood taste by serving one of the best Dimsums in town.
The Oyster Bar, so creatively presented, again a picture worth taken.
The Cotton Candy guy what a talent he is, was thrilled by seeing how Cotton Candy is actually prepared for the very first time.

The Cheese spreads such tempting and at that very moment you forget about your calorie intakes, just one thing goes over your head it would be so delicious with the bread spreads.
You have to choose from the table Menu to go with which dish and both me and my hubby chose the Sea Food platter and it was the best choice. A plate full of Tiger Prawns, Salmon, Hamour all grilled and Calamari battered and fried served with a lemon mayo dip. The fish all juicy and succulent, so perfectly grilled and the taste all divine and delicious. You should really go for this platter whenever you are at Fountain.
