For those looking to carry healthy habits into the Eid break, Abu Dhabi’s first permanent five-star vegan brunch is launching at The Abu Dhabi EDITION next week.
Taking place at Market at EDITION you’ll find an entirely cruelty-free, plant-based three-course culinary extravaganza, taste highlights of which include — king kale salad, cauliflower tabbouleh, charred aubergine steak and black rice pudding.
The brunch was in part conceived by the Abu Dhabi EDITION’s Michelin Star-toting gastronomy partner, British master-in-Chef Tom Aikens.
The inaugural session gets underway on Monday, May 2 as part of the hotel’s assortment of grand Eid Al Fitr celebrations, and will then repeat daily through to Thursday, May 5. The timings are 1 pm to 5 pm, and the soft beverage option is Dhs155, with an upgrade to the next package available for just Dhs100.
After the holidays the brunch will then move to a weekly event taking place every Sunday from then onwards.

Elsewhere in the hotel over Eid, you can take advantage of a special festive staycation package for Dhs1,700 which includes
- An overnight stay in a Deluxe Marina Room with Balcony
- An early check-in
- Pre-dinner refreshments at the Library Bar
- A three-course set menu dinner at Oak Room
- Breakfast for two in Market at EDITION

At Dhs850 per person, that sounds like a pretty good deal.
