INDIE Brunch | Restaurant Review

Indie’s brunch is big, bold and beautiful

as many starters as you can eat, a delectable main from a selection and a tempting dessert to follow. Go with an appetite because this one is for serious food lovers. In an atmosphere for trendy grownups with a taste for the good things in life, ladies visiting Indie can also enjoy a reduced BRUNCH*D set from 1 pm till 3pm.

Where: Indie, DIFC

Cuisine: International

Perfect for: a mellow (not a party) brunch

What we loved: We love how it’s the only brunch where you can order from 1PM-6PM, other brunches state 1PM-6PM but around 4PM is always the last order. We were actually surprised how the brunch ran so long. According to 3 packages, you get to pick 2 starters, 1 main and 1 dessert which may sound like a bit less in terms of food, but trust us it’s more than enough. Half way through the mains, we already got super filled. For the starters, we absolutely loved the spicy tuna (one of our all-time favorites at Indie), the smoked salmon & the spicy corn salad. They have some good vegetarian options too like the quinoa salad or the avocado toast (without eggs). For the mains, we really like the fish and chips & the chicken main dish – really good quantity. Lastly coming to dessert, we ordered the waffle and the french toast. Both of these desserts are a must try, especially the french toast! We asked them for a scope of vanilla ice cream too along with our desserts, and the whole combination with the vanilla ice cream is beyond delicious!

What we didn’t like as much: We expected it to get more lit in terms of a party vibe, nothing else we didn’t really like.

Ambiance: Not too crowded, being a weekend brunch scene. Live music till about 3PM, and then deep House music starts playing at around 4PM when the lights are a bit dimmed.

More on Indie…

Regularly changing live music with singers, bands and DJs help the digestive process along as does the decor; sophisticated industrial vibes predominate, reflecting the Indie theme of stylish guests, sophisticated food and exceptional, carefully crafted drinks.
