Kanpai – Souk Al Bahr

Brunches have become a new norm in Dubai almost every other restaurants has some intriguing deal which tempts you to try out their restaurant and cuisine. But among so many how would you decide if one is actually worth dining or no ? That’s where I come in and make your work easy. Upon being invited to this newly launched Friday Brunch at Kanpai, Japanese cuisine and a Teppanyanki section is what I was looking forward to my visit here.image

A very chic and modern setting and the skillfull teppanyanki section where the chef demonstrates his talents in a nice fun way to experience your brunch here. Set menu with an unlimited starters and drinks is a good way to get your afternoon started. Began with two fruitylicious mocktails moving onto the range of mix starters and soup.image
Miso Soup – Best way to start the brunch is with this wholesome soup, bite sized pieces of tofu and the strong seaweed give out a great taste.
Green Salad – I think this salad could have more inducing sauces to make it a wonderful tempting salad.image
Wasabi Prawns – The crunch of these fried prawns sautéed in wasabi is delightful, wouldn’t mind having a few rounds of this alone.image
Chicken Karange – Golden brown fried pieces of chicken. Taste wise could have been more intense or flavoursome.image
Fried Soft Shell Crab – A bit odd to look at but packed with juicy flavours and each bite has a crunch to it.image
Vegetable Spring Roll – Satisfying and filling, goes well with the chili sauce.image
Chicken Gyoza – Oh these lovely dumplings have a pretty presentation and the filling is superb. The soy sauce gives it that zingy taste to compliment this dish.
Beef Tataki – These tiny mini Beef rolls are so easy to gobble down that they soon leave you hungry for more.image

My start to this Friday brunch surely was fantastic and after this enormous selection of starters we still had two more courses to go. We were served with two pretty little trays which consisted of Sushi’s and Sashimi’s which were scrumptiously good.image

For the main course we had a few options, I went for Chicken Noodles and my better half choose the Salmon with Vegetable Rice. The Chicken Noodles were perfect but the Vegetable Rice could have been more tastier since it lacked the aromatic essence and the tantalizing flavour of Fried Rice.image

Desserts creations consisted of Mochis and Macroons which were wonderful and the Cheesecake looked amazing but the bread could be a bit more moist and softer.image

Finally we ended this brunch session with a strong cup of Green Tea which was surely needed. And if you too want to have a relaxing lunch with a lot of food, suggest you go here.image
