Sundays are happy days. For many of us, it is all about spending quality time with family over good food. Brunching on Sunday is a universal phenomenon and we all look out for that one place that offers good food and great beverages. Vasco at Hilton Chennai will spoil you with choices at their all-new Bingeful Sunday Brunch. The live music, waiters tottering around carrying food from live stations to your table and some great liquor suggestions by the staff is all that you need to have a relaxed time with your loved ones. Oh, they also have a special play area for kids, where you can ensure your little one is all entertained, even as you begin your hedonistic pursuits!
The food spread is massive and we suggest, you walk around and just check out what they offer from beginning to the end. Each section has chalkboards highlighting the specials and we ensured that we tried those out. You can start off with the appetizer and salad section, that has some delicious vegetarian and non-vegetarian choices. Fried Arancini Balls, Avocado and Chicken salad in Cucumber Cups, Truffle-scented Mushroom Vole-Au-Vents, Brie and dry fruit Parcels jostle for space with Beetroot Carpaccio with Goat Cheese and Orange and Grilled Fish in Basil Mango Sauce and Tenderloin Wraps.
There is a separate sushi, tapas and mezze counter, where you can eat all you want. There is a separate seafood salad counter, where they have fresh prawns, calamari rings and clams. Fresh cheese varieties and cold cuts are kept right next to it and you can have them with any bread of choice from their bread station.
Just opposite the appetizer section is the woodfired pizza and pasta counter along with tandoori specialties prepared with lamb, chicken and paneer. They also had a carving station with some tantalizing pork belly and a section for special Greek lamb shanks. If you love your dimsums and baos, there is a whole section dedicated to the Asian delights. Just outside the Vasco’s in the corridor, there is a live grill station, where you can get your favourite meat or veggie variety grilled to your taste and right next to it is the shawarma counter.
By the way, we haven’t even started talking about the main-course spread. They have Asian, Indian and Continental main course. Flat noodles, mixed meat fried rice, pork curry and Chinese stir-fried veggies or Shepherd’s Pie, Braised Salmon slices with veggies and Zucchini, Aubergine and Parmesan cheese bakes or Biryani, Paneer Lazzat, Dal Makhni and Chicken Tikka Masala – take your pick.
The dessert counter was equally fascinating with Jalebi, Moong Dal to Rainbow Cakes, Blueberry Cheesecake and Dark Chocolate Baked Slices along with a separate ice-cream section and much more.
We were also served lovely bubblies from Jacob’s Creek, Bulldozer Margharitha (absolutely sensational!) and a Hoegarden based cocktail along with this giant spread.
When they say ‘Bingeful’, they absolutely mean it, guys!
The brunch starts from INR 2195 (+ taxes) onwards.
