It was a lazy Friday morning with just the right vibe for a brunch someplace relaxing
Marhaba’s latest weekend brunch adventure brought us to Sealine. If only for the view and the relaxing vibe that engulfed the place, the re-opened buffet brunch of Al Odaid at Sealine Beach, A Murwab Resort, was totally worth the long drive.
The buffet offered a combination of the usual and not-so-usual brunch favourites – a selection of chicken, beef and seafood dishes, with the star of the buffet – the ouzi lamb – sitting in a warm bed of flavoured rice. The icy drinks were refreshing, with summer flavours that were almost irresistible.
Our table was overlooking the beach and it was almost difficult to focus on the food while the water beckoned outside. If you’re expecting a grand buffet, this is not the place for you. The food on offer were simple and light, enough to keep you nourished and ready for an afternoon swim.
We had plates after plates of shellfish and several servings of dainty salmon sushi on the side. This was an expected treat and we were very much satisfied. We had three hours to sample everything on the buffet – from 12:30 pm until 3:30 pm – and after at least a few trips, we lounged happily back on our table, with a cup of fresh, brewed coffee.
The meal can only be described as fresh, in keeping with the ambiance. The staff kept their distance, but were always available whenever you need anything.
Are we coming back? Definitely (with swimsuits!).
