Sunday is all about a lazy day – a day to refuel your energy and pump up for the coming work week. So thought of exploring some lazy daisy brunches in the city. Came across the "Happiest Brunch in the Town" at Radisson Blu, Hinjawadi which gave me more than one reasons to visit them. The hotel makes sure that your Sunday is fun-filled with shopping, unlimited food, unlimited sparkling wine & unlimited beer starting at Rs.949 only!

After a long 45 minutes drive, we reached Radisson Blu, Hinjawadi and were excited to pamper ourselves on the special occasion of Friendship's Day. That Sunday was surely a memorable one for us. The place has its warmth and add-ons are the courteous staff, seating area in natural lights, colorful flea market, live pottery session and live food counters like candy floss maker, grill, chaat counter, live music and more. It makes the overall vivacious vibes.

We took our favorite seats and made comfortable near large windows overlooking the natural scenery. On a beautiful pleasant day, one can opt to sit outside. We were offered sparkling wine, but being a teetotaller we settled for some mocktails out of which refreshing Green Apple Mojito was the best!

A board with the starters names is placed near the lavish buffet. Those veg-non veg starters are served hot and fresh on the table. The day special veg starters were
  • Zafrani Paneer Tikka
  • Potato Corn Croquettes
  • Veg Pizza
The Paneer Tikka was nicely marinated and grilled to perfection. The sweet and spicy taste of tikka was worth trying. Potato Corn Croquettes were heavenly. The cheesy gooey croquettes were crispy outside, soft on the inside were ultra satisfying! Thin crust veg pizza was loaded with cheese and veggies – a complete treat to the palate. It was nicely crispy, light and relishing. Loved the starters.

The salads, the main course was the good mix of Indian and International variants including cold cuts, sushi, fattoush, pita, chaat, cheese, bread to name a few. A good deal of the dishes had the richness of dry fruits. It had something for everyone. The dining experience was uplifted with the live band performance. The music, the food, the vibes elevated the mood.

After a small plate of classic Waldorf salad, we moved on to try the veg satay from the grills. The pre-marinated delicious spicy, soft paneer satay was grilled right in front of us. So delish! Then tried the papdi chaat, gol gappas from the live chaat counter. OMG! so flavourful. Also, when chef got to know about my love for sushi, he happily served me veg sushi! So generous of him to quickly dish out the paneer tempura sushi. The taste of it still lingers in my mouth. Super scrumptious. Then next was the freshly made bechamel sauce pasta

We could not resist trying our hands on the Jalebi Rabdi from the counter. Fresh Jalebis were made right in front of us. So crispy and perfectly sweet. A whole section of sinful desserts was waiting for us. From Apple Puff tarts to Rainbow Cakes to Chocolate Cake to Chena Toast, to mousse cakes, I was spoilt by the choices the buffet had to offer. We limited ourselves to chocolate cake only as Jalebis satiated our sugar rush.

After the soul-satisfying meal, I attempted to try pottery but failed miserably as it needs a lot of experience and skills. Co-incidentally it was Friendship's Day as well that day and the arrangements of props and frames were made to take some memorable photos. I could see kids enjoying pottery, candy floss, parents in lunching and shopping.

Truly an enticing and enduring Sunday. I would love to visit again soon! Have you been there? Pen down your experiences in the comment below.
