Inspired by the homely touch of the Lebanese cuisine and the exotic twist of the Brazilian delicacies, the newly opened Address Beach Resort’s Li’Brasil is set to become the talk of the town.
Going beyond the sunshine of the Rio’s beaches, Li’Brasil is a chic indoor and outdoor cocktail bar and lounge overlooking the Bluewaters Island and the Palm Jumeirah. Headed by Executive Chef Ruediger Lurz the menu is the perfect juxtaposition of the two unique cuisines in a tropical setting that makes perfect for a sunset brunch or a laid-back meal.
Li’Brasil’s interior features an exquisite lounge with a vibrant ambience, complete with tropical inspired elements and artwork. The opulent bar counter takes centerstage whilst guests can immerse in the different flavors of Latin American-infused cocktails or an array of delicately fashioned teas embodied with light floral undertones.
The meal begins with an array of premium caviars, halloumi skewers and slow baked sweet potato served alongside cold and warm bites. Appetizers include Brazilian shrimp cocktail simmered in coriander vinaigrette sprinkled with capsicum;lentil kibbeh and a classic interpretation of the signature Tabouleh salad layered with strips of parsley, tomato, and arugula for added flavor. The real showstoppers are the Pots to Share and the Li’Brasil Signature – Grilled seafood and meat skewer. Featuring an array of minced lamb prime sirloin and the grilled hamour, this dish is perfectly glazed with pineapple cream and adds a touch of Brazilian chili fries.
A meal is not complete without something sweet to end the evening. It includes a captivating selection like the acai cheesecake, Café con Leche, and a 23k gold flake Baklava Ice cream.
