When you come across a brunch titled 'Please Don't Feed The Animals', you know something unique and extraordinary lies in store. Promising to take you straight into the heart of the Amazonian jungles, Mama Zonia's Friday brunch not only boasts the finest culinary treats but also the best in entertainment to make your weekend a hit. So, if you fancy escaping into a jungle over the weekend without having to hop on a flight, this certainly fits the bill. Book your table now as a myconcierge member and choose from three packages offering soft drinks, house beverages and sparkling wine.
Mama Zonia goes all out to make guests feel transported to the Amazon. From the chimp locked in a giant cage by the entrance (more man in a furry costume, less actual animal) to the exotic birds, who easily pass off as real creatures, and plenty of lush greenery scattered all around, it's hard to imagine you're still in a desert. You'll find yourself so immersed in the setting that food might not be the first thing on your mind anymore. But once the platters keep coming – with flavours on point – you wouldn't want the indulgence to stop.
The afternoon sees you tucking into classic tropical fare, think nachos, calamari, chicken skewers, creamy guacamole, edamame, sea bass fillet with mango salsa, chicken wings, tiger prawns, rice noodles, beef short ribs, lamb chops and more.
When you've had your fill of the tasty dishes, head to the terrace for wonderful views of Dubai Marina where you can keep the party going with a round of sundowners. And with such inventive infusions, we can't promise you won't be tempted to stay all through the evening, enjoying mesmerising views as Dubai's skyline turns from gold at sunset to shimmering lights under the starry skies.
