A brunch at St. Regis is always Grand and this one has a ‘POLO’ attached to it which makes it even more exciting. A perfect family brunch that has everything for the kids to Adults to enjoy. Food is brilliant. You get the best piece of continents, I still can’t forget their magnificent beef and meat grills. Plenty of horses for you to see in action, thanks to the POLO matches conducted during the brunch hour.
There is LIVE music for your brunch until the POLO matches begin. Once the POLO match starts then it’s LIVE commentary and horses galloping from one side to the other for the ball. They also have pretty horses for you to sit on and take a snap. At a corner you can always see horses getting ready with their owners for the next match.
There’s plenty to eat and you might even not notice some of them. The last time I was here I completely forgot about the salads. This time I made sure to try some of their fancy ones. It’s actually a work of art when you see their Salad station. Lot of color, neatly cut and very different selections from the usual salad bar which makes it an interesting one. They also have a dedicated side to Arabic Mezzah.
Sushis were really good. Dip those colorful sushis into their homemade sauces and nothing like it. There was a chicken soup that was just perfect for the cold weather and made well. There was also a specialized Ceviche counter where you can mix and match to your liking. Although I am not a big fan of raw fish, it’s the combination of spice and sauces that makes it a joy to try them
The hot starters were really good. This one spot was fast moving and at times some starters could run empty, you will just have to wait for them to refill as they were being freshly fried/baked.
They have the dining stage setup with a wide view of their green fields at St. Regis Al Habtoor Polo Resort. This is where we watched the Polo match while we ate our brunch. This is also where the grill station exist. The good part about this is that while you wait for your meat to be cooked you could be happily enjoying the Polo match from a distance.
I must admit their Paella was very good this time. It shows they take our feedback seriously as they seem to have worked up improving the Paella from last year. The meats and beef were the juiciest kind and you guaranteed to be happy with quality of the meats.
The Polo brunch comes with activities for kids in mind. They have a theatre room where they can be watching cartoons, face painting, a funny clown to get them laughing and complimentary shaped balloons for all kids.
Let’s not forget there is a kids corner for the Polo brunch which consists of a buffet, fresh juices and a premium ice cream parlor where they can place an order, have it in cup or cone and fill them with different toppings and sauces.
One area they need to improve would be their mocktails. For a five star brunch I was expecting some good looking and tasting cocktails but here they don’t seem to have anything impressive.
Desserts are elegant and nicely displayed in a glass box and it felt like picking these pastries fresh from a pastry shop. My favourite would be their brownie chocolate cake where the dark chocolate on it just blew me away. There is so much more for your sweet tooth but to be honest by the time you reach the desserts you are actually too full to eat anything or let’s say not able to eat them as much as you want. so I highly suggest to walk down their entire collection of buffet items and then start planning your choice. They also celebrate birthday in style with a special cake and fireworks.
