CEL­E­BRA­TION BRUNCH

SHAKE AWAY THE WEEK AND IN­DULGE IN THE IS­LAND VIBES AT MISS LILY’S BLAZIN BRUNCH

CEO Middle East - - CONTENTS -

Ed Sheeran, Ri­hanna and Bella Ha­did: New York’s Ja­maican con­cept Miss Lily’s has big names count­ing it among their favourite hotspots in Dubai.

It’s noth­ing like the posh and swanky venues that sur­round it; no floor to ceil­ing win­dows with city views, or up­scale dé­cor or bur­nished fur­ni­ture. Miss Lily’s is all about laid­back din­ing in a colour­ful, Caribbean set­ting boast­ing vi­brant shades of green, red and yel­low. Ta­bles, benches and pri­vate group cor­ners are scat­tered around the cosy shack-look­ing space.

You might as well be on an is­land, with the easy go­ing staff ami­ably min­gling with cus­tomers while tak­ing or­ders of de­light­ful dishes sea­soned with fiery Ja­maican spices.

We de­cided to try the venue’s Blazin Brunch – a dif­fer­ent ex­pe­ri­ence to Dubai’s usual cos­mopoli­tan (and hec­tic) scene. The care­free vibes were quick to get to us groov­ing to smooth Reg­gae hits while gorg­ing on Ac­kee Hum­mus. The is­land fruit with pink skin and gi­ant black seeds is an ac­quired taste on its own, but in com­bi­na­tion with hum­mus is a de­light­ful, and sub­tly, sour.

The fruit is also mixed with salt fish dumplings to make for a pe­cu­liarly pleas­ant and spicy tang. Our hands-down favourite how­ever, was Miss Lily’s Burger; served with fat jerk fries and spicy mayo, the ex­cep­tion­ally ten­der and rich tast­ing patty re­quires sav­ing space for, its size is so gen­er­ous.

In essence, leave your busi­ness at the door, there’s no room for it at Miss Lily’s. The re­splen­dent is­land ex­pe­ri­ence, home-style Ja­maican fa­vorites only de­serves your full care­free at­ten­tion. – Lubna Ham­dan

Miss Lily’s Blazin Brunch be­gins at 12pm and ends at 4pm, while pric­ing ranges from AED250 to AED390 de­pend­ing on the pack­age.
