Little Suzie’s Diner Brunch is a new theme for Pullman Dubai Deira City Centre’s Friday brunch. It brings a new experience altogether as Medley restaurant transforms into a 50’s diner offering classic American fare while playing the best tunes of that era.
Last Friday, we had a preview of this new brunch concept. When the doors of the lift opened, we were surprised to see the skater girl herself, Little Suzie, together with a big brown bear. It was a nice welcome and these two just gave a glimpse of what was waiting inside. Excitement built up as we passed by displays of burgers, fries, steaks, salads and sweets. Mmm, comfort food in one place!
We were ushered to our table located just a few steps away from the dessert station. Man, why do I always get a seat next to temptation? The sweet station looked so appetizing that I want to skip everything for dessert.
The server came and offered us drinks – they got some fresh juices, milkshakes and alcohol. Then, we whisked to the rest of the buffet tables.
Our first stop was the buffet line that features soups, roasts, BBQ ribs (that the fiancé raved so much about), mac and cheese and some sides like corn and fried shrimp. Next to it is the Fast Food Central where you can ask for a serving of burger, hotdog or crab cakes with a side of French and/or sweet potato fries.
We moved to the Italian table after, aptly named Little Italy’s Corner. It was actually a surprise to find such a station on an American diner but the pastas, pizzas and the rest of the Little Italy spread was a nice random addition.
Right next to it is the big salad bar that offers a variety of everything you want with your “light” meal.
We returned to the next set and found out a heavenly display of my breakfast favorites, waffles and pancakes! I wish I had known it ahead because for sure I’d dived to this station first before everything else.
And since I already started eating sweets, we went to the desert table after. Cheesecakes. Fruit skewers and a chocolate fountain. Pies. Cookies and muffins, different kinds of them. It was a feast for my eyes and stomach.
Right after a very filling brunch, we roamed around and found tables and seats alfresco. There is also a very nice Kid’s corner, complete with a kiddie buffet spread matched with colorful plates and cutleries and a flat screen TV playing a cartoon show. On the counter is a popcorn station.
We were happy diners/visitors to Little Suzie’s Diner Brunch. It offers a variety of good food and a nice place to hangout with family and friends plus, the service is impeccable, especially with happy and helpful servers. The 50s music adds a cool vibe to the environment, too. We’d love to come back to Medley for brunch, probably with friends in tow next time. I’m sure it’d be fun.
