You know it is special when they have Burrata on the buffet or a Thai chef tossing up Pad Thai for you at a live station, such was my Sunday lunch at JW Café at Hotel J W Marriott, Sahar.
One of the biggest coffee shops in towns in terms of seating, this place can also easily boast of the biggest buffet spread for a Sunday brunch replete with ample natural light and a lively awakening vibe. The spread at Rs 2250++ comprises Soups, Salads, Indian chaat and snacks, Dosa and Appams, Gyoza dumplings, sushi, tandoori appetizers, Indian mains and biryanis, pasta, risottos, Cheese selection, Thai counter, mezzes and shawarma. All of the above offered vegetarians options and of dishes I could taste the food was fresh, done well and came hot as most came from live cooking stations.
The desserts selection again was a long and delicious story with super delicious waffles with thankfully whipped ‘dairy’ cream and an assortment of compotes and syrups, assorted Indian barfis, Shrikhand, Gajar halwa, a repertoire of pastries, doughnuts, macaroons and the flavour of the season, mince pies. After all of this I still couldn’t resist the temptation of having plum cake, it plays on my mind every year as the cake-mixing season begins and it wasn’t on the buffet! Chef Prasad made sure he got me a portion from the JW Baking co and I can’t thank him enough for that, the Christmas season had arrived. My lunch like most of the crowd lasted for over 3 hours only to end in a deep Sunday slumber, of course followed by an evening run. A Sunday well spent indeed!
Their next special buffet line up at the JW Cafe is on Christmas eve and Christmas brunch both priced at Rs 2500 plus taxes and it is certainly destined to be a delight for non-veggies with roast turkey and chicken, leg of lamb, suckling pigs and other Christmas classics lined up.
Have a festive season y’all!
