Be transported to the swinging jazz age of 1920s Osaka with this new weekend brunch.
Sultry and sophisticated Japanese restaurant Mimi Kakushi has made quite the impression since opening at Four Seasons Resort Jumeirah Beach Road earlier this year.
The alluring menu showcases Far Eastern flavours with Western influences while adding playful twists to well-known Japanese classics. While the venue, which takes inspiration from 1920’s Osaka, will now be hosting an exquisite Mimi Kakushi Brunch on both Friday and Saturday lunchtimes.
Nibble on bites of citrus salt edamame before the cold starters appear, including beef tataki with truffle ponzu, sesame-dressed seaweed salad and a selection of sushi and sashimi. Next up are the hot starters featuring black cod and prawn gyoza with a citrus miso sauce, crisp vegetable tempura, Kushi Angus beef and yakitori chicken thigh with sweet soy.
Main courses are where this brunch hits its stride with choices such as the appealing marinated black cod with citrus miso sauce, grilled salmon teriyaki, glazed corn-fed baby chicken, sweet sesame garlic grilled Angus fillet and wild seasonal mushrooms with umami-laden seaweed butter.
A selection of Mimi Kakushi’s desserts is sure to enliven your senses (if you still have room). All accompanied by an extensive drinks menu.
From the team behind La Cantine du Faubourg, Twiggy by La Cantine, NINIVE and Lana Lusa, the Mimi Kakushi Brunch is served every Friday and Saturday, with three-hour slots available from 12pm to 4pm. AED 350 (soft beverages), AED 490 (house beverages) and AED 695 (Champagne).
