In what is perhaps the best brunch-related news of the year so far, COYA is to launch a Friday feast. And they want you to get your hands dirty.
The hugely popular Peruvian restaurant at Four Seasons Resort in Jumeirah is to embrace the classic Dubai past-time from early next month, offering a complete range of serving styles.
Already a smash hit around town, despite opening little over a year ago, the London eatery, expects their weekend offerings to raise the bar for brunches.
Combining numerous food and drink live stations - but with a twist - guests can gorge on ceviche, tacos and traditional South American refreshments. Prices will start at Dhs298 (soft drinks), Dhs398 (house beverage), Dhs548 (bubbly).
So what about that twist? COYA want to educate your mind as well as inflate your waist, so cooking stations will be interactive, allowing foodies to find a little more about - and even get involved in - the preparation of ceviche and other dishes.
Beyond that, hot plates and desserts will be served to the table.
That means you can look forward to, as we described from a visit last year, 'red snapper ceviche that floods the table with truffle aroma, a lovely balance of heady, sharp and fresh yuzu'. There might also be 'plated scallop tiradito, delicate and elegant in appearance as taste'. And what about 'a salad of corn that makes excellent use of Peru’s many native varieties, ranging from crunchy and nutty to plump and creamy.' You get the picture.
