Commenting on the opening, Chef Carmen said, “ME Dubai is known to be a stylish and uniquely designed hotel that acts as a bold statement within the Burj Khalifa district of Dubai. With BRIX’s innovative desserts and exquisite servings, we feel confident that the two brands create an excellent partnership concept-wise. We’re delighted to open BRIX as ME Dubai’s open café in the hotel. Our menu consists of decadent desserts made with quality ingredients which in turn elevates one’s experience and defines how sweet dishes taste. BRIX is known for serving a variety of delectable options, be it sweet or savoury, and we have created some new items especially for ME Dubai that we are excited to serve to guests at the hotel. Some of our highlight items include the ‘coconut mango’ which is made of mango and chia seeds as a base topped with more mango cuts, passion fruit and granola, which makes for a great light breakfast or a healthy snack throughout the day. From the beverage options, there is Japanese lemonade, made using Japanese lime and it is quite a refreshing beverage during summer.”
