          My dining partner and I hit up the Summer Choices Sunday Brunch at Dream Beach Club on Mother’s Day in early August. I have been to the beach club before, and it is a venue that I absolutely adore. Dream Beach Club is a great spot to spend the day, and we arrive just before noon to ensure we get the most of the brunch, which lasts until 4pm. The staff greet us warmly and show us to our table. Drinks are served almost immediately and we start to walk the floor to check out what is on offer for the Summer Choices Sunday Brunch.

          Brunch-goers are spoilt for choice at the weekly Summer Choices Sunday Brunch at Dream Beach Club. Not only are the views amazing and the pool inviting, the food is top notch and features enough variety to satisfy even the fussiest eater. The brunch consists of an outstanding selection of Seafood on Ice, BBQ varieties, humongous Live Lobster, a Japanese Kitchen with a fantastic sushi spread, Carving Stations with lush imported meats such as lamb, a variety of pastas, tapas, fresh salads utilizing local ingredients, international cheeses and decadent desserts.

          We pile our plates high and head back to the table to tuck into what is sure to be an awesome feast. I’m impressed with the food and an immediate fan of the fresh salads. The pesto pasta salad with fresh veggies and shaved parmesan is light and moreish, while the Greek Salad is delicious with all of its olive varieties. It occurs to me rather quickly that the Summer Choices Sunday Brunch focuses on light bites which utilize fresh ingredients. The dishes on offer are perfect for grazing the afternoon away while hopping in and out of the beach club’s refreshing swimming pool.


          My dining partner and I sample nearly everything that the brunch has to offer and are unanimous on our decision that the Chicken Satay is a standout dish. The chicken is tender, but the sauce, in addition to oozing with peanut goodness, also has a spicy kick that is not often found in satay. The mini burgers, or sliders, are also a hit and I go back for more than one serving of the Serrano Ham with Rock Melon. The seafood dishes are all fresh and flavourful, and by the time we decide to try desserts we are stuffed. However, we soldier on and fall in love with the soft, yet chewy, freshly made waffles with Vanilla ice cream and fruit sauce.

          It really is a wonderful day for us at Dream Beach Club, and as the afternoon wears on, we are a bit sad to leave. Honestly, the Summer Choices Sunday Brunch is quite posh which makes it even more enticing as it is truly good value for the money. A variety of price points include the following:
