Headed by Mexican Chef Manuel Sanchez, ZOCO Dubai’s Arriba Arriba Brunch is a Friday escape to the streets of Mexico. The urbanised ambience, Mexcian cuisine and live band have weekend vibes written all-over.
The carefully curated menu comprises freshly prepared Latin American classics by the likes of enchiladas, fajitas, quesadillas and of course, fresh guacamole. “We try to give our guests an original taste of our food from the North to the South of Mexico by using age-old family recipes that contain the souls of our ancestors,” says Sanchez. “My only aim is to make my guests experience the real essence of Mexican flavours with our food.”

Over at the live cooking stations, brunchers will find an array of salad and seafood options to relish in, a live taco station and a no-regrets dessert section which includes a chocolate fountain and mocha-flavoured mini cakes. For those who fancy nachos, there's a whole pot of endless hot nacho cheese sauce too.
The authentic ingredients used by Sanchez showcase the preservation of Mexican originality while catering to an international audience. “I believe in staying true to your culture without compromising on its authenticity,” shares Sanchez.
And if it isn’t your cheat day, there’s a separate menu with healthy options too. Weekend Mexican fiesta anyone?
