Andreas Turns Two

Posted by Kero at Sunday, December 27, 2009
Look who is a big boy now! Andreas celebrated his second birthday on December 26th. We decided to have a family celebration instead of a kiddie party. I booked a brunch on the date at the 7-star hotel Burj Al Arab.

The world's most luxurious hotel boasts of seven restaurants. One of them can be visited via submarine. But since we see the Dubai Mall Aquarium almost every day, I passed for the signature underwater themed dining. Instead, the family opted for Al Muntaha which is located at the 27th floor of the Burj Al Arab.

I will be sharing the famed atrium and interior dripping in gold in the coming PBW posts but for now, i will share the photos from Andreas birthday brunch.

Al Muntaha sits out in the semi-circle structure of the magnificent Burj Al Arab. The express lift option made me dizzy all the way up to the 27th floor.

Maybe because we made an early reservation or because we had a birthday celebrant that the family was given one of the best table. I silently thought so and smiled to myself. It was further confirmed when a number a dining guests came to ask permission if they can take photos beside our table. The intrusion made our five-hour brunch more pleasant.

The view from our table. This....the Dubai Skyline and among the most exclusive beaches of the city.

.... and the world famous man-made island, The Palm Jumeirah.

The birthday boy and his complimentary cake. He was also serenaded by the beautiful lady in red. It was one fabulous 2nd birthday celebration for Andreas!

There was so much food on the buffet that just the sight of them made me full. There were several live cooking stations. We had caviar, foie grass, roast beef, sea food, sushi, and all the Christmas dessert you can imagine. I ordered double Glenlivet for hubby but i stayed drinking Voss and fresh orange juice since i intend to tour the hotel in heels :)

The service was superb. The staff were friendly and not overly-helpful. It was our dream brunch for a very special family celebration. And we were definitely given an experience to remember for a long, long time to come.
