Dubai: "I used to think The Meydan Hotel was only open during the Dubai World Cup," I told my dining companion as we stepped into its signature outlet, Farriers. 

The restaurant is one of four at the five-star hotel, with a terrace offering great views overlooking the race tracks. It's as close as I want to get to the Dubai World Cup vibe without having to wear a ridiculously ostentatious hat.

Friday brunch here is a secret delight, with a huge buffet spread that literally spreads out to the lobby and the terrace. There are live cooking stations and a great mix of Middle Eastern, Asian, International and Continental cuisines. Plus, there's a live band dishing out a Postmodern Jukebox ensemble to add to the happy vibe.

For June, the hotel has put up a beautiful, white Ramadan tent where people can enjoy iftar with live oud and tabla performances.

The iftar spread is just as elaborate and combines specialties from the hotel's restaurants along with traditional Arabic fare. 

There's something here for everyone and every taste bud. I enjoyed the delicious lamb ouzi after finishing a platter of sushi. I also helped myself to dimsum and some roasts. I finished with a selection of Arabic sweets, including a delightful bowl of um ali and a heavenly slice of creamy cheesecake that got me thinking of horses and yes, even ridiculously ostentatious hats.
