DESSERT TRAIL….Sunday brunch at the Intercontinental
I always look forward to a SUNDAY BRUNCH, the idea of a gourmet spread of food in a laid back atmosphere, interspersed with some eclectic conversation is most appealing.
It brings back immediate memories of buffets and brunches, with elaborate menus, that I visited in my growing years.It was my silent seduction to the food world,I would say.
Enter the simply, elegant and beautiful Intercontinental at the marine drive,Mumbai.Bright warm vibes that start with the visuals of fresh flowers.
I move to LONG AND SHORT,the well-lit sea facing all day dining restaurant.
As I cross the draught (draft) beer keg, a display of well constructed appetizers and salads greet me.Beer on tap weaves into the atmosphere of this Sunday brunch.
Fresh juice shots support the appetizer and cheese array
My smiling,table attendant presents a selection of hot starters from the kitchen.
An unlimited range of starters arrives one by one.
I always say, a second helping counts as food appreciation and not gluttony 🙂
Midway the live band duo arrives. As they sing “stand by me “…..I move to the main course section, displayed in warm chaffing dispensers.I can see the traditional “kali dal with hot steamed Basmati chawal”. A bite of this, and I am looking out for the chef, who made this bottle worthy dal to perfection.
The wisely planned main course section,has a blend of Indian,oriental and international options.
Aha a, finally…..I head to the dessert counter.I see colorful, flavor ridden slickly presented desserts.
A Sunday brunch,that seemed like an extended party !
Taste this at The Intercontinental,Marine drive,Mumbai.
