What a wonderful way to celebrate the perfect weather in Abu Dhabi is to have impeccable Evening Brunch at KOI Restaurant and Lounge, imaginative dishes are inspired by traditional Japanese preparations, then deconstructed and infused with modern California accents. We are absolutely stunned by the gorgeous interior and fancy vibes that welcomed us. 

My look that night is very simple yet stylish, threw these white trousers paired with a navy blue turtle neck jumper and wool dinner jacket with white pocket square from Lanvin and to complete the look with this gorgeous pair of slippers called The Chase from Bachelor Shoes 

What's on our table to start? Well, we had two choices of soup the original and spicy Miso Soup, Edamame with sea salt on the side too and Indonesian Gado Gado, some raw papaya and shrimps salad with soy sesame sauce and we also had Fried calamari salad with tofu dressing too. 

We tried the Vietnamese prawn spring rolls with hoisin sauce, Salmon tartar with Gyoza chips and Wagyu tataki with mushroom & Ponzu sauce. Of course, we shouldn't miss the assorted Sashimi - salmon, tuna and yellowtail and the Maki Rolls with spicy tuna, California rolls, salmon & Unagi and fried white fish with avocado

And before we hit the Main Course, we had the Creamy Rock Shrimp Tempura and the Spicy Grilled Chicken Wings with Umami Mayo

Always pair your white meats with white wine

For the Main Course, it comes in Platter and perfect for sharing or for one (If you really have a huge appetite) Miso Marinated Black Cod comes first and Sauteed Prawns with sweet & sour sauce are so good, my fave will be the Thai Chicken Curry with steamed rice (obviously with rice) we also had Burmese Khow Suey, Pho Bo beef noodle soup and lastly the steamy Nasi Goreng! 

The last but definitely not the least and my fave part of every meal, DESSERT Time!!!

And we ended our amazing night with Cappuccino and hot chocolate for Mark. Massive thanks to KOI Abu Dhabi Team  for the impeccable Evening Brunch
