Leela has always kept it simple, limited and standardised with its brunches. We recently tried the Sunday brunch @Citrus, The Leela.
Firstly what we love about this place is the greens surrounding the restaurant visible from its long glass panes. It has a very soothing effect.
Our table was right by the mini waterfall and the lush green plants .
India has such varied cuisines that itself is a celebration. We tried their Eastern Regional themed brunch and were stunned by their delicacies.
They had picked up dishes from Himachal, Bengal, Assam and more.
We tried the following :
Bengali style vegetable soup
Laksa is a typical delicacie .
And not to forget the delicious spicy momos.
For mains we tried ,
Phed Nor Mai wok fried bamboo shoot with string
Kaow Phad Pak – vegetable fried rice .
They had great fish like sarson diya mach .
Lets talk about my favourite part. Desserts.
And oh they had sugar free Rosgulla . I absolutely had no guilt then.
They had others too :
Kesar chum chim
Barring this, they also had the regular
Live pasta and pizza counter
And the best of all, lovely fresh popcorn popping in front of you.
They also served Hummus , Fattoush and more.
Their dessert spread was limited but good. We loved the fondue .
We also liked the innovation to the simple dishes.
We tried :
Chocolate mousse with apple cardamom compote
Pistachio crepe brulle crumble – I loved how the pistachio flavour dwelled .
Saffron baked yoghurt
Boondi baked lemon cheese cake – I genuinely liked the way soft boondi and cheesecake went together.
They say more than the food, what matters is the how they feed you.
The staff was genuinely so warm and fed us like we were family.
I was not well. Mr Ravi, served me some amazing black tea with ginger and honey .
Further, Ravi was recommending us some wonderful dishes to try on.
Mr Kaustabh took care of us extremely well.
Further, all the staff whose names I might have missed were warm.
We sat there for good 3 hours enjoying the weather from inside and gorging onto delicious food.
Every Sunday of this month is regional themed brunch.
Further , till 14th August on Dineout they do have 50% off on brunch .
