For lazy noons

For lazy noons
I had a very confused idea about brunches. It was all about a late breakfast that filled you up so much that there was no place for lunch. But then I had to redefine things in my head. Brunches were breakfast lunches that spread over half the late day, over noon and a little bit of those early evenings. And am talking winter sunlight - what’s not to love?

Making most of the winter sun most hotels across the Capital are hosting their special winter brunches. We headed over to Blooms at Eros Hotel, Nehru Place to try their spread. Priced at Rs 2500 (plus taxes and without alcohol) they offer unlimited sparkling wine, some great cocktails and of course beer.

Start with the incredible spread of cold cuts. Out of all the places we have tried out for brunch, Blooms had one of the most impressive cold cut platters, hands down! Dig in to fresh salmon, ham, pepperoni, prawn cocktails, mussels, squids and the list just goes in. It is a complete meat lovers’ delight. For those not willing to go all carnivorous, you can try Roasted mushroom caps with balsamic and cheese flakes, Potato and bean salad, Caprese, French beans with sundried tomatoes, Tea flavoured eggs with tapenade and there’s more.

For the main course they have a buffet on offer as well as live counters for Teppanyaki, Dimsums, Italian, Sizzlers and Grills, Galouti and Prathas and dishes from the Tandoor and even some awesome South Indian fare.

Make sure you try the prawn dimsums and get the chef to whip up some great fried rice at the Teppanyaki counter. Do not miss the grills where you can get salmon, lobsters, squid and tenderloin steaks grilled for you. Try the grilled pineapple for guilty pleasures. As the chef suggests, do try the malabari parathas with mutton.

Please keep some place for deserts as they have the chocolate fountain with fruit skewers and an incredible chocolate cake with the liquid centre that is baked fresh for you. You can also take a pick from the ready dessert platter.

Head over this Sunday, the brunch is on from 12 to 4. Make a date out of it. You won’t regret it!
