Relish a vast spread of international and local favorites, fresh in flavor and dedicated to various regions of the world at Flavors on two restaurant located at Towers Rotana on the second floor,centrally located in the bustling area of Sheikh Zayed Road.
As we love to lazy brunch in our own sweet and happy time on Fri-yay right in time to enjoy that decadent meal, we decided to venture out to this popular restaurant to embark on a culinary journey of exotic flavors.
Copious portions of seafood of all kinds line the buffet counter – from a selection of freshly made Sushi and sashimi (one of my favorites being the california roll – fresh crab and ripe avocado rolled in unison to create this testament of deliciousness) to cold seafood salads – fresh and crispy to the touch and a diverse collection of succulent sea food – delicious and fleshy crabs and jumbo sized prawns from the depth of the clear blue ocean.The orange shelled beauties were definitely my favorite as the meat was flaky and soft and slightly moist in nature.
I absolutely love my dim sums – steamed, fried or stuffed delicately with prawns and meat.There is something quite heart warming on seeing these translucent stuffed dumplings that makes my palate go in eat and savor mode, so on seeing the dimsum baskets on the other side of the counter, i could not help but smile from ear to ear as i peeked into the baskets, almost feeling like a little girl opening her presents. My favorites were the siu mai, a dimsum classic, they were super stretchy in nature and these little nuggets were packed with flavor. The chinese steamed buns were delicately soft and was easy to pull apart- just the way i like them.The meat inside was perfectly flavored with a hint of spice and all things nice.
For those who are looking something a little more meaty, the grills will not disappoint from lamb shanks to grilled beef tender portions and grilled chicken breasts, i knew better than not to step on the weighing scale that day:) My favorites were the braised lamb shanks which truly melt in your mouth as the meat is meltingly tender to the bone simmered in a rich and a flavorful gravy and a perfect accompaniment was a bowl of hot steamed white rice to really enjoy the flavorsome flavors.
To wrap up our lunch, we chose an array of desserts and sweet treats from meltingly delicious chocolate fondue to creamy strawberry cheesecake, the highlight being the date cakes – though this usually is not my first choice of desserts- the warm color and fragrance enticed me to take a quick bite only to my delight as the cake was not too rich and lightly smothered in a sweet sauce to tantalize your tastebuds.
