Served to the sounds of everything from David Bowie to Aerosmith, dishes at the American-themed Souk Madinat Jumeirah restaurant and bar are brought to the table to share – with diners able to order unlimited rounds of starters such as chicken wings, Texas barbecue nachos, massive mozzarella sticks (swoon) and spinach and artichoke dip.
Choose a main from options including the Smoky BBQ Platter, featuring smoked beef short rib, cheeseburger slider, pulled brisket slider, a hot dog, creole grilled chicken and grilled shrimp, plus “all” the sides (lush), or go for the vegetarian option, starring vegan sliders, garden pizza, falafel wrap and more planty morsels. Fan of real bacon? There’s a dedicated platter featuring all that gear, too.
Round the whole thing off with P&B’s Brunchtastic Freakshake, which comes laded with doughnuts, brownies, toasted marshmallows, wafers and – unthinkably – more.
Taking place from noon until 6pm, rock up any time for a three-hour package priced at Dhs199 with soft drinks or Dhs299 with house beverages.
There will also be live entertainment throughout the day, including a fancy dress competition (!) and an air guitar contest, with the chance to win your next brunch at P&B’s on the house.
Each table also gets their own face-painting kit, using which they can create their own rock persona for all that air guitaring.
Finally, there’s an after-party package available from 2.15pm onwards, priced at Dhs99 per hour until 6pm – after which it’s happy hour until 8pm.
Time to shake, rattle and roll down to Souk Madinat Jumeirah, it seems.
