Experience Br-Unch at Kyo in Palm Jumeirah
Where east meets west and morning meets afternoon!
2 October 2017
Savour a culinary match between East and West, by immersing your senses into the Japanese ‘Yoshoku’ philosophy at Kyo Restaurant & Lounge. Located on the Palm Jumeirah’s Golden Mile, this upmarket Japanese restaurant and lounge boasts a team of talented chefs who expertly play on the exchange of Japanese and Western influences, creating interplay between ideas, flavours, techniques, and design. The Kyo Weekend Br-Unch offers a traditional yet contemporary twist on the traditional Western morning brunch and the iconic Dubai afternoon institution.
The Br-Unch menu has been designed to showcase the best of the weekend dining culture, fusing a memorable tasting experience with an elegantly relaxed off-duty ambiance. Diners will step inside the Kyo zen garden lounge and be transported to the Far East, with a heady mix of lush greenery and vibrant flowers, before turning their attention to the series of dishes on offer. Up first is the ‘Br’ section, with its Western orientated flavours, executed with a surprising Asian element. A Viennoiserie basket and homemade preserves is elevated with almond and kumquat croissants, An Pan, green tea Melon Pan, and yuzi and chocolate brioche with tangzhong toasts, whilst the brunch staple of eggs benedict is reimagined with benedikuto, seaweed muffin, smoked salmon, poached egg and Japanese sabayon shichimi togarashi. A seasonal fruit salad is enlivened with hibiscus and sansho water.
The meal continues into ‘Lunch’, with Asian rooted recipes, including many new additions such as Hosomaki sweet water eel, hotate, waski duke, Uramaki salmon, ilkura cheese and lime and Nigtizushi flamed scallop and wasabi duke. Guests can also order a selection of fish and seafood, corn-fed chicken thigh or grass fed Angus Japanese kofta from the tepanyaki grill, prepared freshly and flamboyantly to order, with miso aubergine and vegetables grilled on the robata. Proceedings are bought to a theatrical close with the Kyo sweet platter, yielding a generous selection of decadent bites, perfect for sharing.
Both enriching and entertaining, Br-Unch at Kyo is the place to see and be seen this autumn.
