The amazing guys behind Tom&Serg gifted Dubai yet another great restaurant and café – The Sum of Us. It’s fairly new and just opened early this year. Before it was even operating, it has been making buzz in social media. It took us a while to visit and when we finally did, we went there for a lovely breakfast!
The Sum of Us is located in Burj Al Salam in Trade Centre, just behind the Sheraton Hotel. The two-level restaurant and café features a bakery on the ground level and an open kitchen with a massive dining hall on the top floor.
With industrial interiors and quirky and rustic decors in every corner, The Sum of Us evokes a hip and cool atmosphere. I loved how the owners stuck to this branding!
We sat at the corner on the second floor for a little privacy. People started coming in before lunch and when we left, the house was brimming!
For a change, we tried something else aside from our usual English breakfast and egg dish. We opted for a Morning After Wrap that’s basically a wrap with scrambled egg, veal bacon, chicken breast, mozzarella, crushed avocado, tomato, kidney bean and lime salsa. It came with a salad side and a yogurt dip. The variety of ingredients, savoury taste and freshly baked bread make this wrap delicious. It’s amazingly heavy for its size, too!
We also tried the uber good Salted Caramel French Toast. It’s not your ordinary toast because it is soaked in a gooey salted caramel sauce, topped with slices of banana and mascarpone and dashed with candied macadamia nuts! Ugh, my brain froze at the sweetness and crunch overload!
I loved alternating bites between the wrap and toast for a balance of saltiness and sweetness!
The fiancé’s café latte was good and my hot chocolate was thick and pure. One of the best hot chocs in town!
Service, like that of Tom&Serg’s, is efficient and deserves applause. I felt how good of a working environment the staff have because they’re always friendly and jolly, not to mention very hip that is just very fitting to this uber cool dining spot.
