Sunny side up, music, lively vibes, a sizzling mood... this Sunday, angels were passing by at SUD down in Mar Mikhael... flying over the rainbow, I felt transported by this positive dreamy ambiance. People enjoying themselves, superb vibes, outstanding music... it feels so good to be sharing brunch with the family surrounded by old Lebanese houses in vibrant Beirut.
Every Sunday Sud celebrates happiness from 11 am to 4 pm with its extraordinary brunch. Great vibes, happy people, vibrant music and much more... wait until you’ve tried the food! Delicious food prepared by Rita Yazbeck, chef and owner of La Petite Table helped by the brigade of Chef Adrien Trouilloud who have newly joined the team all the way from Paris after working at many starred restaurants in the capital of food.
It’s all happening up on the terrace where a bar and several tables welcome you. The place has been newly refurbished and equipped with a billiard table giving it a homey feel.
The tables are a feast for the eyes; live cooking stations, croissants, pastries, pizzas and tarts among many other specialties. Freshly cooked before your eyes are eggs, manakish and spaghetti. The choices on the dessert bar even include knefeh from Abdel Rahman Hallab.
Fine flaky croissant the real French way, a wide selection of cold cuts and smoked salmon, freshly baked crunchy bread, a dark chocolate fountain, homemade tarts and cakes and pizzas prepared downstairs by the pizzaiolo at Sud.
Daniele rocking the decks, you can’t help but move! Not a single tune felt out of place, just vibrant vibes from start to end, giving the space the magic of fun and pleasure. I loved how the chefs were moving around discretely, how the plates were refilled, how everyone smiled with excitement... it felt good to be there!
The food is exceptional! Try the croissant sandwich stuffed with cheese and ham. The gigot d’agneau, the raclette cheese and sausages, the sunny side up eggs and most importantly the desserts that come after. Desserts up to the standard of a fine pastry shop, a unique dark chocolate eclair, a memorable chocolate tart, a superb Paris-brest and probably one of the best tiramisu I’ve ever had in Lebanon! Chapeau!
It couldn’t be any better, happier and tastier... it’s “The Sunday Brunch” to attend. I felt energized for a long week ahead.
