The Waxy O’Connor Experience

As a newb into Dubai – when you get an email asking if you want to go for brunch and a “few” beers you jump at the chance. So fresh faced and bushy tailed I turned up at Waxy O’Connors which is located at the Ascot hotel Bur Dubai.

Upon entry I was told to buy “drinks vouchers” and was at first a little concerned when I was offered ten – I went for the safer option of five at a rather cheap price of 50 Dirhams. I joined the lads who were all ready tucking into large portions of English Breakfast. My question was “how much was that?” answer “free”. Ideal I thought and got stuck into a generous portion of cooked breakfast myself which was washed down with an ice cold pint of strongbow – hardly an ideal combination but I convinced myself that it was a good replacement for apple juice. I was told that this was included in the price of the original five drinks voucher and that later on you are also entitled to a full roast dinner. I was staggered by the value the only catch was drinks vouchers are only valid between 12pm to 7.30pm – probably a good job.

One of the lads chose to go for a second round on the roast dinner – though I wasn’t sure about the bacon and green vegtable combination. I had to take a picture:

Just to review – 50 Dirhams which is about 8 UK pounds – buys one cooked breakfast (as much as you can eat), one roast dinner (as much as you can eat) and five pints of beer. In fact you are free to buy more vouchers and we all duly did – so the total was 100 Dirhams for two meals and ten pints of beer. Nutrion of Champions!

Anway with such an early start and that much to drink and eat I was safely tucked up in bed by 10pm.

Overall 10/10 – great fun with a group of like-minded lads and Waxy’s shows a whole lot of sport as well. Heaven.
