There’s nothing quite like a wonderful Sunday brunch on a sunny winter afternoon in New Delhi. After all, unwinding with friends and family over a picturesque buffet which is worth Instagramming is indeed a memorable way to end the weekend. 

Not too many things can compare to a lavish Sunday brunch at one of the best hotel restaurants like Pavilion 75, WelcomHotel Dwarka in Delhi. In the past couple of years, it has introduced special brunch menus aimed specifically at the brunch-eater. From the more traditional eggs on toast, to a wide range of seafood, salads, elaborate Indian fare and even some refreshing cocktails on the side; you have the option of choosing between a sumptuous buffets or going the a la carte way—they cater to varying tastes and preferences. So, wake up late after a long Saturday night out, and head to one of these spots for a leisurely afternoon of good food and drinks.

The ambiance of this place is full of bright and vibrant colors with ample natural light that flows in from the front façade made of glass. It’s a huge place with lots of sitting and various food counters. One can have a chilled out afternoon with friends and family over awesome Tiki cocktails and chilled Hoegarden beer combined with numerous cuisines. They have put up most counters than any other place I have seen in recent times. Be it the Indian Kebabs, Cocktails mixing, Seafood, Churros, Donuts and the Gulab Jamuns. Salads were really very good especially the fruit cocktail and the artichoke salad. They also do octopus salad in form of wraps. Not to forget the chicken Dimsums, which were to die for though the oriental fare can be improvised a little bit as the flavors were not coming thru properly.

 The kebabs were amazing and the Indian curries like the Lal Murgi and the Dal were nicely done too. I relished the European counter much which had the beer can chicken and the black forest pork with polenta. 

Much focus has been given to the Desserts, like a big variety in the patisserie section, the Indian sweets like the Malpua Rabri, Rajbhog etc. The Churros and the freshly made donuts were awesome in various flavors and colors.

The ongoing promotion is with unlimited Hoegarden Beer which is a stupendous deal for sure. A must visit for everyone who loves good food in a great company like of their own family and friends.

Diabetic Dessert Trail: A Unique and Must Foodie Journey for all Dessert Lovers

 Diabetes is indeed one of the most commonly complained health conditions nowadays. No wonder almost every 1 out of 5 people in the family is afflicted by diabetes and unfortunately the remedy is a huge bag of medicines and saying no, no to sweets. But Kudos to Manoj and Seema Pinto, who with their personal experiences and enthusiastic sprees was able to come up with something new, innovative and a perfect remedy for all those diabetes lovers who just cannot live without desserts. Welcome to the diabetic food Trail, a journey that was the creation of these two geniuses who believed that even a diabetic person can also feed on desserts, only and only if they are enough healthy.

Delhi happened to witness such a healthy Diabetic Dessert Trail wherein several food bloggers were invited and were taken to different deliciously famous food joints. And then the surprise unveils. You come across scrumptious desserts and they are not diabetic, well, we mean, they are healthy and made in a manner to take care of all your diabetic safety measures.

The journey started with Berco’s , a culinary joint that has several branches in Delhi. However the Trail was executed in Greater Kailash Area and thus the branch chosen was Berco’s of Greater Kailash. Berco’s served two dessert delicacies: Sugar –free caramel custard and Sugar-free Lemon Cheesecake.

The best parts of these two desserts were that they were both a compromise on sugar but still they tasted equally delicious. What more can be a pleasure for a diabetic person who can happen to gorge on such fabulous dishes without even giving a second thought on the calorie counts?

The next food stop at the Diabetic food trail was GetAFix. This joint too is a celebrated name in cuisines and everyone was looking forward to what surprise shall be unveiled from them. GetAFix came up ith a unique concept of a sugar-free carrot cake and a sugar-free lime pie. A cake without sugar and that too made of healthy carrots is an unimaginable affair almost. Lime-pie also offers the same surprise and believe us both were once again filled with awesome tastes.

The third stop in the Diabetic Food Trail was Bohemia and I would recommend them to be the best amidst the lot. Being completely unbiased and impartial, I would give them extra brownie points because of their sugar-free tiramisu. A deep coating of chocolate, coffee flavors and without any sugar ingredients, Bohemia has in fact given me one of the best experiences. The other contribution on the plate was the sugar-free chocolate fudge.

The last but not the least companion in our food trail was G’s Patisserie. The sugar-free warm apple and cinnamon cobbler, sugar free zucchini cake and sugar free banana oats with nutria-choice essentials oats cookies were the offerings on their behalf. G’s Patisserie happened to gift us the company of an exclusive chef too, who explained the tit bits of the delicacies.

This endeavour- The Diabetic Food Trail in collaboration with Britannia Nutrichoice Essentials and Biocon, is indeed one of its kind in our foodie journeys. We loved it to the core and hope that it comes every year with such an informative experience by Seema Pinto and Manoj Pinto.
