If you’re an avid brunchgoer, chances are you’ve heard of Love Parties. For the past few years the group has been throwing some of the most popular party brunches across the city including Hidden Brunch, The Stage (which took home a highly commended gong for Best Party Brunch at the Time Out Dubai Music & Nightlife Awards 2019) and We Brunch.

One thing’s for sure – the team knows how throw a party – and For Love Of Brunch (F.L.O) is the latest addition to the impressive roster of lively brunches.

Taking place at pan-Asian eatery Lah Lah, we head there with high expectations, our comfiest dancing shoes and ready to party the afternoon way.

We’re greeted with the choice of pink grape, white grape or hops and take a seat in the light and airy space. It’s packed with a stylish crowd but lacks the knees-up vibe we were anticipating. It’s relaxed and cool – the kind of brunch you could to go with your mates and have a laugh but one you could also take your parents to and still enjoy.

The set menu is served to the table sharing-style. Salmon tataki with a yuzu-ponzu dressing is fresh and zingy, prawn tempura maki rolls are tasty and the vegetable spring rolls and Korean-style fried chicken wings are pleasant enough. A few more healthier or vegetarian options wouldn’t go amiss, though.

Swiftly after, the mains hit our table. The spicy Cantonese lobster lacks much of a kick but the Thai chilli and cashew nut chicken is juicy, sticky and firm favourite on our table, as is the perfectly cooked grilled lamb with a punchy hoisin glaze.

The mains are served along with arancini (perfectly crisp orb oozing with melted cheese) and triple-cooked chips – odd accompaniments but we’re not complaining as they’re delicious.

For dessert we are brought Lah Lah’s Delight – a single red velvet cupcake each – and a platter of tropical fruits, ice-lollies and mochi which are gooey, rich and unquestionably live up to the bold name than the sad and rather lonely sole cupcake.

Service could do with sharpening – there’s a lot of hanging around – but music is class to keep you entertained.

If you’re a fan of old school R&B and hip-hop (we’re talking Dr. Dre, Mary J. Blige, Snoop Dogg, TLC and Usher), get ready to squeal “I love this song” about a gazillion times.

As the brunch nears an end, the atmosphere starts to turn up a notch when partygoers arrive for the post-brunch shindig at the bargain price of five drinks for Dhs150.

While it might not blow you away, it’s a steady choice and the atmosphere is lively. Will it give well-established party brunches a run for their money? There’s work to be done before that happens.
Dhs295 (soft drinks), Dhs375 (house beverages), Dhs450 (sparkling). Fri 2pm-5pm. Zabeel House by Jumeirah, The Greens (052 798 7292).
