I confess: aside from my thing for walls, doors, windows and food, I have a thing for eggs. Not the kind of egg that breaks your heart into pieces but eggs that actually make somebody else's morning - the breakfast eggs.
And Downtown Dubai is a great spot for an early egg hunting. Come search for best breakfasts in Dubai and you will easily come across several restaurants located at the Centre of Now. This means, a handful of eggs, of different recipes and flavours, from different countries, is waiting to be discovered.
Along with a few blogger friends (Lady, Doc Gelo, Myla, and Kriska), we crawled the stretch of Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard to search for the best breakfast eggs being offered in Downtown Dubai. What we found is more than just a plate.
Eggs Benedict - La Serre Bistro and Boulangerie
Omelette and Breakfast Pan's Sunny Side Up - Fümé Neighbourhood Eatery
This restaurant with a vintage feel attached to Manzil Hotel opened in Downtown a few months back and a lot of breakfast hunters like we do have given the same verdict: their eggs were good too. Not as fancy as the ones served at La Serre though, their omelette in particular has it's own unique character. It has this special texture - it reminds me more of the countryside life I've read in books and magazines. Well, the interior has got a lot to say...
Fume is serving a few breakfast smoothies - one thing that will ruin your concept of early morning drinks, but in a really good way. We have tried their Dubai mango mash and Burj Berry, both of them are really good. But they are also serving monster shakes as early as 8:00am so we didn't miss the chance to try it, we had Bro-nut and Berry freaky. Two-thumbs up!
We stayed a little longer at Fume, never realised we were there for 2 straight hours! Before we left though, two rainbow bagels arrived on our table free of charge. I guess the duty manager noticed our photography stunts while taking the shots so thank you Mr. Manager!
Shakshuka Eggs - The Bench at Rove Hotel Downtown
There's a lot to choose from as we booked for brunch. Aside from the unlimited buffet where you can select your own choice of cold cuts, salads, breads, juices, tarts, and many others, it also comes with a menu from the kitchen where you can choose one serving for yourself.
