My wife and I visited Liwan Restaurant in Swissotel Al Ghurair to sample their new Friday Brunch concept called “Around the World” which features cuisines from different destinations every Friday.

This weekly Dubai brunch concept is just in time for the opening of the Expo 2020 Dubai event. After all, the Expo is lauded as the World’s Biggest Show celebrating different countries around the globe.

While there are already a variety of cuisines offered in the sumptuous buffet stations, Swissotel Al Ghurair has a special spread where they highlight a country cuisine for the week. We were able to taste the Apple Strudel, Raclette, cheese fondue, Zurcher Geschnetzeltes, and many more.
