Christmas Brunches At These Restaurants In Bengaluru Promise A Jolly Good Time

It’s not the holidays if you don’t stuff yourself with some delicious food in the company of your loved ones. And these restaurants in Bengaluru are here to ensure just that. Serving up Christmas brunches with traditional roasts, boozy concoctions, and delightful desserts, this festive season in the city is all about making merry. By Eshita Srinivas

Christmas is steeped in tradition, and every classic festive food has lore attached to it. For instance, having a whole-roast turkey at the table can be traced back to King Henry VIII, who was the first English monarch to have eaten the bird for Christmas in the 16th century. Candy canes, meanwhile, were believed to have been distributed by a choirmaster in Germany in the 17th century to keep young children quiet during long church services. Also, a tradition? Sitting down for a leisurely meal with the people you love.

That said, having to zero in on a tree and shop for presents while also planning out the perfect brunch can get stressful enough to take the joy away from the holiday itself. This year, leave it all to these restaurants in the city that have decked their halls and prepped their tables for the most scrumptious Christmas brunches. All you need to do is show up with a good appetite.
