The lavish, innovative Sunday brunch

The lavish, innovative Sunday brunch

Food review

This drink is unlike anything you may have tasted before,” says Sumit, one of the chefs at Radisson Blu as he introduces us to Blue Topaz, the frozen mocktail, aptly named after the precious gem.

A drink, one of the most popular ones at the Radisson Hotel chain all over the world, truly lives up to the chef’s words. However, Blue Topaz is just one of the many delicious surprises you can expect at the Sunday Brunch at Level 2, the all-day dining restaurant at Radisson Blu Hotel, Paschim Vihar.

With a comfortable ambience, a most helpful staff, scintillating live performance by Final Ace and even an in-house magician, the brunch has all the perks you can expect at a luxury abode. Especially if you are a music lover, the covers by the Final Ace band of some all-time favourites like Elton John’s Sacrifice and Lady Antebellum’s Need You Now are likely to make your eating-out experience ever more satiating than you expected.
And it’s not just the atmosphere; the food with all its varieties is a gatronomist’s delight. The menu, thoughtfully prepared by master chef Dheeraj and others, offers wide ranging choices from the Indian and continental cuisines. Making the dining experience more profound, Level 2 offers live counters serving Pizzas, Pastas, Crepes and many more dishes served along with the signature mocktail Blue Topaz and a wide range of unlimited beverages to choose from.

The brunch begins with a delicious bang with some amazing starters, such as Bhuney Piyaz ka Murg Tikka, Palak Paneer Kabab, the Lebanese Lamb Kababs, Fish Dumpling and Tandoori Bharwa Aaloo. The Murg Tikka has an interesting mix of spices, which along with the Lamb Kabab and Fish Dumplings will satiate the meat cravings of any die-hard non vegetarian addict. Among vegetarian starters, the Palak Paneer Kabab is clear winner, quite unlike any other thing you may have tasted.

For fans of the Italian fare, there are also some thin crust pizzas, white sauce pastas and crepes to choose from, apart from some Chinese delights like dry Manchurian.

The best way to describe the main course in the brunch is to call it a combination of innovation and tradition. Some of the dishes like Tulsi Paneer Tikka Korma and Bharwa Tinda Masala have been introduced by the chef to the benefit of those who love the traditional Indian food, while options like Spanish Eggplant Casserole and Spinach Noodle will be loved by those looking for something different.

The stars of the main course are Chicken Chettinad, Roast Leg of Lamb with Curried Jus and Stir Fried Prawns. Chicken Chettinad is a clever rendition of the famous dish from south India and is spicy enough to stir the taste buds of Indian eaters, while Roast Lamb has a very unique taste which literally melts in your mouth and remains with you for long. The other options include Bedmi Poori with Aaloo Bhaji, Sambhar Vada, Murgh Biryani and Dal Makhni.

After the main course ends comes the best part of the meal: the desserts. And Radisson really excels at it. Cravings for the sweet tooth are well taken care of with an extensive range of scrumptious desserts displayed at the huge dessert island with an array
of choice.

With a combination of some finely made breads, some Indian sweet dishes and experimental desserts, the chefs give a fitting finale to the guests.

On offer are Brioche, Croissant, Cake Slice, Cherry Danish, Chocolate Danish, Oats Muffin and Diet Muffin. The combination of these exquisitely prepared breads are a heavenly treat along with sugar syrups, Nutella, strawberry and raspberry preserves.

Talking of desserts, you will be in a sweet dilemma: What to try and what not to. Whatever you opt for, include Betel Nut Parafit, which is unlike anything you would have tasted. The bluish Curacao Bleu Pannacotta is also a treat. The small, adorable Mocha Cho Bun will definitely make you try more than one. And if you are a chocolate fanatic, the Dark Chocolate Cheese Cake will give you enough reasons to continue your love affair with it.

Also worth a try are Red Velvet and Cardamom Torte, Chocolate and Kahlua Roulade, Lemon Crème Caramel and the unusual Carrot Cake with Cheese foresting. And this is not all. If after trying all of the above, you still have some space left, you can taste Kaju Mango, Chocolate Roll, Cheena Toast Pakhija and Pineapple Halwa. For those who want it, a large variety of wines, champagnes and beer are also available to go with your
sumptuous meal.

Apart from the food, the ambience and comfort of the restaurant provide a perfect setting for a family hangout. While the live band keeps you entertained during your meal, guests can also relax at the pool deck, while the special zone for the kids keeps them occupied with magic and puppet shows.

All in all, the lavish Sunday brunch makes for a memorable experience, worth trying at least once.
