Latest addition to Bangalore’s 5 star hotels The Shangri-La hotel, offers brunch at their Café aptly named B Café where the B stands for Bangalore. The Mighty Lunch, they call it, and it is mighty in every sense of the term!
The brunch here is not just your normal buffet with variety of dishes and cuisines, it is an experience and a celebration. There is something for everyone. A variety of counters, featuring dishes from around the world. A chat with the Chef will reveal the fact about how most of the produce they have is local. Encouraging local farmers, cheese makers is something they look to do. The chefs at every counter are very interactive and always ready to explain any dish, ingredient and cuisine to you. They’ll also whip you up something special to your taste and liking.
Coming to the various counters, where do we start! There’s Chaat, Sushi, Pita Breads with hummus, baba ghanoush, Salads and cold cuts also variety of cheese. The brunch every week usually has a theme as well. They serve slow roasted meats as well as live grill your choice of meat. They have live Shawarma and Pizza counters. They had a very interesting fruits and chocolate pizza topped with marshmallows. It was delicious with marshmallow providing the stringy effect of cheese.
There are made to order counters when it comes to Nachos, Tacos, Pasta, Thai Curries and Asian Noodles. You can choose your type of noodle/pasta and the sauce, the veggies/meat and it will be made fresh and delivered to you at your table. There is a fair spread of Pan-Asian and Indian food as well. The day we went there was Parsi food. They serve warm Dimsum, Shumai and even set up a barbecue grill on your table.
The experience part of the brunch comes with the molecular gastronomy counter where little blobs of different liquids are served and when they explode in your mouth, it gives a bang of flavour! While for the most part, the DJ there plays happy music, be ready for when “gangnam style” comes on, for all the chefs, maître d’s, the entire crew shakes a leg. They involve the customers as well. Truly a celebration indeed.
Thanks to the huge space they have that can seat 200+ guests, they also have a kids corner for them to play. And if that doesn’t excite them enough, they have a special corner called “Little Hat, Big Hat”, where the kids can indulge in culinary activities in a fun way with sandwich making, cookie decorating, smoothie making, that keeps them involved and excited.
