For a memorable Friday treat that promises both, the views and great food, BOA Abu Dhabi is the place to be. Overlooking the stunning Eastern Mangroves, this charming venue instantly transports you out of the city's buzz. What you're left with is a laidback afternoon surrounded by views of the coastal waters and serene greens. And we couldn't ask for a better setting to tuck into a delectable brunch overflowing with culinary treats, from seafood to succulent grills. When you book your table as a MyConcierge member, you enjoy special discounts on all packages including free-flowing soft drinks, house beverages, sparkling wines and French bubbly.
Brunch features an à la carte menu with dishes served to the table and is divided into five courses. It all begins with a towering seafood platter – think everything from jumbo prawns and oysters to tuna tartare and rock lobster Louie – followed by cold starters, hot appetisers, mains and dessert.
After devouring the treasures of the ocean, your next course sees you enjoying a selection of Caesar salad, burrata with heirloom tomatoes, cold smoked Atlantic salmon and beef carpaccio, all served to the table. This is followed by delectable hot appetisers including mud crab cakes, foie gras and goat cheese baklava.
For mains, you can take your pick from an extensive list of steakhouse favourites. It's hard to whittle down your choices, but there's always scope to keep coming back for more and try out everything on the menu. The grain-fed tenderloin packs in plenty of flavour while the black Angus striploin melts in the mouth. You can also opt for the black Angus rib-eye with a red wine sauce while the braised beef short ribs, cooked with merlot, is not to be missed. There's also roasted corn-fed chicken and herb-crusted salmon fillet on the menu. Each of the mains is accompanied by a side of your choice – sautéed spinach, truffle cheese fries or grilled asparagus.
Bringing your meal to a sweet end is a platter of treats including chocolate brownie, vanilla ice cream, mini apple crumble and New York cheesecake.
