The Sunday brunches are the in thing these days, well let me tell you, there are brunches in Pune and then there is the brunch at Hyatt. I’ve wanted to pen down about my lazy and laid back Sunday brunch at Hyatt Regency, Pune for a while now and finally I found my inspiration. Thank God it’s Sunday!
I totally loved my brunching experience at Hyatt. There is no pretending of being something that they are not, as The Café at Hyatt Regency have created a modern look with a solid team to offer a welcoming brunch experience.
This brunch offers you an assortment of cuisines that use fresh, organic seasonal produce, seafood, meats, all procured from local farmers markets and suppliers.
The freshest fruits welcome you as enter the café. I was pretty excited the moment I entered the place as I witnessed a huge lavish spread which consisted of almost everything a brunch comprises of. Breads, salads, juices, soups, dips, desserts, ah and also some delicious chaat.
The menu at The Café, Hyatt Regency isn’t the most inventive or surprising brunch menu, however, there are some noteworthy twists and add-ons to the usual suspects. Keeping in line with the current trending news, I started off with some sushis and dimsums.
The crab and prawn sushi were really good and for the first time in all these years I found the undercooked meat that sushi is, really good. The dimsums again were pretty good and had a super thin covering.
Just couldn’t take my eyes off from some of the exotic meats served at the brunch, one such thing were the rope farmed green lip mussels and I so want to try them again, yes, they were that good.
Another really good part of my lazy Sunday brunch at the Hyatt was the Chaat counter. Chef Anirban mentioned that he handpicked the best of chaat makers from the streets of Pune, believe me, they delivered. Loved the chaat Hyatt offered.
For the mains I tried the chicken yakitori and chicken satay along with duck salad, also my customized pasta which was to die for, actually a three cheese pasta!
They also serve rustic Chicken Rassa, Thecha, Zhunka and Bhakri, and not to forget the perfectly cooked Dum Biryani and the Murgh Makhni.
A lot of veggies too, but this carnivore didn’t even go close to them, you know why! A huge selection of cheeses and cold cuts on offer and just like they say, “The stinkier, the better, did try a few and found them decent.
I kept waiting for the best part of the meal while enjoying the live band, a cute Asian girl singing my favorite songs like “My heart will go on” by Celine Dion. And it was time for desserts baby!
I really had a tough time choosing from the wide variety of desserts that Hyatt offered, I am sharing the ones I liked the mot which included the classic tiramisu, crème brulè and the dragon fruit pastry.
The Café at Hyatt regency has hit the right balance of creating a modern cafe decor – that has come to be the norm – and matched with some great brunch dishes. They haven’t gone about to re-create the wheel but the slight touches makes this brunch experience worth travelling for.”
