Why I love brunches? Difficult to say but something about brunch makes me feel classy. The food options are unlimited, you can keep on drinking and yes there is no rush – you can stay forever…
Playboy has introduced the Sunday brunch at their beautiful Balewadi High Street set up with live grills, live music & live egg counter. Bubbly Mimosa keeps the atmosphere sparkling on a lazy Sunday.
You can have milk with cornflakes & some bread & cheese platter to start with. Some fresh fruits & made to order eggs are enough to give you a smile. But thats all folks.. the breakfast ends here and you jump over to the luncheon..
The next level:
The wide variety of appetisers or Tapas have everything from cold soup Tomato Gazpacho to Kerala spiced squid rings (yum) served with pickled madras onions. The selection is creative with vegetarian & non vegetarian options which will spoilt you for choice.
A special mention to the Tenderloin roulade with sultanas & rosemary glaze – a perfect amalgamation of sweet and savoury flavours.
The continuous flow of appetisers will keep you entertained throughout. I really liked the mini jerk chicken pizza. Veg spring roll with Schezwan sauce & devilled cheese toast was totally a regular affair.
Live, Love & Grill…
The live grill at Playboy is the highlight of Sunday brunch. The proteins may differ but who cares.The aroma curling up from the grill makes me high !!
The first thing that will grab your attention is the scent of smoke – sweet & fragrant. Pork ribs have wonderful flavours with slightly sweeter sauce to counterbalance the saltiness of the rub. The meat is moist & juicy. The texture is little crunchy & little chewy.
Try their veg Burmese Khow Suey, one dish soup meal with egg noodles, coconut milk & veggies along with complimenting condiments. The one served to us was little spicy but tasty for sure. Add lemon to add some tanginess
Mi – Mo – Sa
Mimosa is a refreshing and bubbly cocktail, perfect for brunch. Take a chilled flute glass, fill it with 2/3 of prosecco, add some freshly squeezed juice, garnish with fruit and viola – your bubbly is here..
Its not very sweet, has tanginess from fruits and bubbles will definitely lift your spirits. You have to give it a go guys, or may be more….
Well after so much of good food, if you still have some space left, the mains on buffet are all set to make your brunch in a gluttony.
By the looks, I opted for chicken fricassee. The gravy was rich, smooth totally complimenting the mashed potatoes. The chicken was beautifully cooked. Loved all the elements of the dish.
Chicken biryani was not outstanding but in the right spirits & out of all the other dishes a better option.
Desserts are the most exciting part of any meal and here you will feel a slight disappointment. There is nothing on the menu which will give you a sugar rush. The only saving grace is strawberry panna cotta.
Good food, live music, magician and a complimentary foot massage will make your Sunday afternoon into literally a fun day. You will get all of this in
