Atlantis The Palm … Saffron Brunch …

Well the Saffron brunch is one we had been looking forward to for a while … When Perry found out that Mike and Adam were coming over this was the brunch he wanted to do with them … so along with a few other friends, Terri, Cliff and Paul we all made our way down to the Atlantis on Friday last week for Brunch …

The first time we did this brunch was earlier this year when Perry’s sister last came over … we had so much fun the last time we went we were really looking forward to it … and it didn’t disapoint either … so much food to choose from and plenty of drink stations with many a cocktail to try …

To start off the moring we did a little walk around the Atlantis to show the guys around before we went on to the indulgent food …

We were greeted on the way in with a mini bottle of sparkling wine … a nice way to start …

Pimms … a drink that always reminds me of home … And so much food to choose from … it was hard to make decisions …

The chinese food station  above and desert station below …

Fruity Mojitos … alot of these were consumed on our table …

Giant Roast beef … basically the entire back end of a cow …

Some roast pork above and the Dim Sum station below …

Aftershock shots in plastic pippetes held in Pinapple chunks and watermellon cocktails above … Daiquiri’s below …

Seafood & Sushi station above … Cheese selection below …

Jager station …

Macaroons … and the Chocolate Fountain with lots of yummy stuff to dip …

Adam with his first (rather reserved) plate of food above … and Terri and Cliff below …

Toffee/sweet covered apples … rather funnily labled as ‘Fresh Fruit’ on the bar … and Perry with a enormous slab of Turkish delight below …

Crepe’s to order … and Perry with his first round of deserts …

Mike decided to bring over one of the pinapples with shots of Aftershock balanced in it … we all had one … it wasn’t pleasent … but the pinapple eaten after helped get rid of the taste! … And below … the drinks started stacking up rapidly on the table …

A selection of the deserts above … and all the wonderful cheese’s below … yum yum …

Terri and I decided our table wouldn’t be complete without a giant watermelon cocktail centerpiece …

Paul gets back with another round of drinks …

A round of Jager shots made it to the table …

Mike’s face says it all really … Jager is not really that nice …

Paul was stunned by the Magicians tricks … while Cliff was rather more skeptical …

Blowing smoke out of a straw … like magic …

Perry went for a Chocolate and sprinkles covered apple … and below … me helping him out with it …

Mike had a fair amount to drink that day … oh and the coconut had pina colada in it … there were also Small hollowed out pinapples served with Mai Tai cocktails in them too … and below … Adam finished up the last of the watermelon cocktail …

After we finished with the brunch … (we didnt leave till about 5) … we headed on down to Nassimi beach for some post brunch drinks (like we hadn’t had enough already) … but I’ll save that for the next post …

Stay tuned …

Till next time …
