Be ready to eat till you drop! This winter, make your Sunday mornings absolutely delicious by enjoying the Sunday Brunch at The Glass House at Hilton Garden Inn Gurgaon. By Sushmita Srivastav
It’s a warm, sunny December morning. The Glass House at Hilton Garden Inn Gurgaon is awash with bright natural light, the floor-to-ceiling glass windows are offering soothing views of the lush lawns outside; some peppy Jazz number is playing in the background; my table looks no less than a mosaic with a variety of dishes placed atop, and there’s a glass of bubbly sparkling sangria in my hand. I am at bliss.
However, Sundays, as I am told, are always this perfect at the Glass House. For Hilton Garden Inn Gurgaon treats its guests with scrumptious brunch buffets every Sunday. The all-day multi-cuisine restaurant lets you indulge in an extensive buffet of Indian, Italian, Continental as well as Pan Asian cuisines, and the gastronomy experience is further elevated with live stations, salad section, a dedicated dessert station, and drinks coming fresh from the fashionable Pose bar standing next to it.
The ambience is airy and the soft golden light of the chandeliers above mixed with the daylight streaming in is making the entire place look even prettier. As I am feasting my eyes on the views of the tall palms slowly swaying with the soft wind, there arrives a fizzy pineapple drink and a granola bar with my name written with cream on it, as a warm (and the sweetest) welcome. Across the hall, there’s a live South Indian counter, where hot paniyarams are being dished out with coconut chutney and tangy sambar. Behind it, is the section where everything from fresh fruits and salads, to pieces of bread, sliders, and even a variety of chaats are being laid out. After picking some beetroot and feta salad and a smoked chicken slider, and ordering some paniyarams for myself, I retreat to my table. Meanwhile, there’s some pepper chicken fry waiting for me at the table, sent by the chef.
I take my own time and pace to finish what I have on my table, keeping in mind two things—the fact that the Sunday brunches are made to be enjoyed slowly, and that the portions here come large. My second course begins with a delicious half-and-half thin crust pizza (pepperoni and ), some freshly made Tagliatelle pasta in Aglio e olio sauce, a small portion of fed chicken pan gravy, and some Vietnamese fish curry with steamed rice. There’s also a dedicated Indian cuisine station next to the Pan Asian station. But even for someone like me who loves to explore every section of an elaborate buffet, this is as far as it goes.
The dessert station brims with the likes of tiramisu, chocolate mousse, sugar-free panna cotta, a variety of custards, rasmalai and more. But I am too full to take even another bite and decide to drop by another Sunday to enjoy what could be called one of the finest brunches that I have had in G-Town.
