Dare I say this is my new favourite breakfast in Dubai?? I’d been wanting to try Firebird Diner for yonks but never seemed to make my way to DIFC… until I learned about their not-very-well-publicised, all-you-can-eat breakfast!
‘Twas the first day of Ramadan so it seemed that not many people had yet discovered that this awesome diner by Michael Mina at the Four Seasons at DIFC is open during the holy month.
If you’re not fasting, you can get a cracking breakfast for only AED 100 + 10% DIFC fee for anything and everything off a fab menu from 7am to 11am. (Price goes up to AED 110 + 10% outside of Ramadan and includes a cold buffet.)
You can order whatever you want off a menu that includes coffees and teas, mocktails, smoothies, milkshakes, pastries, omelettes, hot breakfast items like eggs benedict and shakshouka, the best coconut yogurt I’ve ever had, and sweet breakfast desserts like the must-have “The Elvis” French toast – a deliciously soft, custardy, sugar-encrusted hunk of French toast with spiced peanut and caramelised banana.
Verdict: For 100Dhs for all-you-can-eat at a Michael Mina restaurant, you can’t go wrong!
Note to self: Arrive early and plan for a long and leisurely meal.
