Behind the scenes at a Dubai brunch

Brunch is one of Dubai’s most famous institutions. Every weekend, thousands of residents flock to the city’s restaurants to make the most of package deals that are not just economical (depending on where you go), but often dish up way more than just food.

Whether it’s coastal vibes, live music, karaoke or inflatable sumo wrestling, nowadays brunch is an all-encompassing tradition that is available practically every day, coming in all shapes and sizes.

But how does one of the city’s biggest brunches come together every single week? What goes on behind the scenes to make it a show-stopping foodie favourite?

We sat down with Monica Metzger, who’s the F&B Director for two of the major hotels in Dubai Marina – Le Méridien Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina and The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina, which of course is the home of Bubbalicious.

In this episode of The Big Listen, we go behind the scenes at brunch, and find out what goes into creating these spectacles.

You can listen to the whole episode on iTunes, Google Podcasts and Soundcloud now, and check out the rest of the series so far, where we cover topics from rent to comedy in the UAE and even the city’s theatre scene.
