Bid adieu to summertime with the all-new Shanghai Grand ‘dusk’ brunch
Newly expanded menu of Asian flavours and all-indoor seating make Wakame the go-to hang out to mix and mingle
Dubai, UAE, 15 September 2016: Yes, it’s about time we said goodbye to the hot temperatures and head out in style for the first post-summer brunch. If toasting sunset over a feast of dim sum, maki and more sounds like the ideal way to celebrate, then take a seat at the all-new Shanghai Grand brunch at dusk at Wakame, the real modern Asian experience.
Welcoming the start of Dubai’s Autumn brunching season at Wakame is an expanded offering that features everything guests have come to love about the Shanghai Grand experience – not least the popular unlimited dim sum and speciality maki. New to the table will be a refreshing green market bowl salad, the must-try chicken yakitori and vibrant vegetable tacos, enlivening tables with the colours and tastes of Dubai’s much-awaited outdoor season. Diners will also have the choice of one speciality dish per person, with regularly changing options available on a rotating menu throughout the season.
Wakame’s chic all-indoor setting provides a welcoming space to relax on Friday afternoons while guests toast sundown and savour the revamped menu, including edgy twists on the traditional sushi roll such as Rainbow Reloaded and Firecracker Roses.
