By Time Out EditorsNovember 18, 2021
Treat your taste buds to the sun-kissed flavours of Latin America.
It’s time to book into the newest Saturday brunch in the heart of Dubai, La Peña Brunch at Asado at Palace Downtown.
The culinary fiesta pays homage to the rich flavours and rustic charm of Latin America, with sweet and savoury Argentinean classics headlining the menu.
Brunch kicks off with La Picada, delicious cold dishes such as black Angus carpaccio, burrata Guyana and ceviche mixto, and Los Calentitos, traditional hot Argentinean plates such as empanadas, sweet corn stew and moreish potato croquettes stuffed with cheese.
For the main course, the slow-grilled baby goat is a must-try, and there is a range of expertly grilled meats from beef short ribs to lamb cutlets, all marinated with Asado’s signature chimichurri, and prepared as you watch by chefs at the live cooking stations.
Save room for dessert, with Panqueque Con Dulche de Leche, Asado’s take on the humble pancake one of the signatures, along with ricotta cheesecake and of course, crispy churros.
Let your taste buds succumb to the temptation of flavours whether piquant, sweet or savoury in a setting that transports you to a Latin American organic market, right here in Dubai.
A live singer provides classy, chilled-out entertainment for the perfect Saturday brunch, while Burj Khalifa and the Dubai Fountains provide the unbeatable view.
