Mumbai Food Review: Of beer and bites, and feasting galore

Beer and bites

Sunday mornings just got better with the beer fest at the Radisson Mumbai Goregaon. The Liquid Lounge is the ideal place to chill and unwind with the lager, good music and great food. The buffet tables at the sprawling 180 Degrees groan under a satisfying range of options. From welcome drinks, to soups, and salads, it just gets better as you can have your starters (Continental, Oriental and Indian) served hot and fresh at your table. You might also want to stroll across to the live pasta station, Mumbai sandwich station, omelette counter, dosa and chaat counters, where the smiling chefs will whip up your choice of nosh. Punctuate your bites with plenty of sound bytes – catching up with family after a hectic week – and you will have room to sample the main courses in all three cuisines. From among the fab spread, we found the Malaysian chicken curry with Lemongrass Steamed Rice particularly flavourful, while the Malbari Pomfret Curry was also declared a winner. The desserts with no less than 12 tempting options, along with an ice cream station or the lovely cheese platter, round up your meal perfectly. Don’t miss this one.

Feasting galore

ITC Maratha’s Maximum Brunch is the road to the most elaborate Sunday brunch in town… and how! It is all about luxurious indulgence as you savour an array of dishes from all of its award-winning speciality restaurants at one price. Go with a hearty appetite to do justice to the offerings from the five iconic brands – Peshawri, which comprises the culinary repertoire of the cuisine of North West Frontier; Dum Pukht which offers the 200-year old culinary legacy born in the royal kitchens of the Nawabs of Awadh; Pan Asian which represents the authentic culinary traditions of China, Japan, Korea, Mongolia and Thailand; Dakshin Coastal which presents the culinary traditions and authentic flavours from the Southern states of India and the Peshwa Pavilion, which offers authentic seasonal specials. This is a buffet spread crafted with incredible a la carte delights. No wonder then that we spotted many happy guests hopping from one fave restaurant to another on their culinary expedition. Top off that fabulous repast with a choice of exquisite desserts. Other must-try non-edible delights: complimentary salsa and bachchata dance classes, and a playzone for kids with a giant Dora smiling on. What’s not to love??
