Matagi launches brand-new ‘crazy rich’ Friday brunch

We’ve seen a few new summer brunches pop up this year, but this Pan Asian restaurant’s new evening declares it’s crazier than the rest. We’re intrigued.

Matagi has announced a brand-new Crazy Rich brunch, and it promises to be “more decadent and daring than any brunch before”. Don’t fret, it won’t be too heavy on your wallet.

Taking place every Friday from 7pm, the four-hour brunch will serve up an array of Asian dishes, along with the latest DJ tracks and creative beverages.

For food, expect sharing-style appetisers of sashimi and maki platters along with hot dishes such as chicken thighs, yakitori and ikura udon.

As for mains, expect miso lamb chops with spicy slaw, grilled wagyu sirloin wasabi and garlic soy glaze portobello mushroom.

For those with a sweet tooth, brunch-goers will get the choice of either mochi ice cream with passionfruit or mikan cheesecakes with cheesecake mousse, mascarpone cream, peanut brittle and caramelised peanuts. The more items on a dessert, the better, we say.

Every dish is handcrafted by the Matagi chefs from the show kitchen, so you can see all the food you’re about to eat being whipped up.

This new Friday evening brunch is set against the backdrop of a live DJ set, serving up an extensive mix of house and electronic beats. Basically, don’t forget your dancing shoes.

Even better, guests can get a 40 percent discount on their way to the restaurant on Palm Jumeirah using Careem. Just use the discount code MATAGI on the app.
