Cookies, chocolates, nutri bars
Cakes, breads and sandwiches
Sabudana vada, Bhel puri, sev puri,
dahi papadi and more…
Coffee and Tea
And there were fresh fruits too.

Was
it a birthday or just a celebration? It felt like a bit of both…



We
were at The Dining Room in Park Hyatt to celebrate their 2nd
birthday and check out their high tea that was launched on the very same day.

Plush
seating areas, a beautiful view of the pond outside and huge french windows streaming
in natural light, bringing the place to life.

It
is quite the ideal setting for an evening meet, a business meeting, a casual
catching up session with friends or an opportunity to dig into interesting bites,
and sip on filter kaapi from the traditional dabara..

Quite a spread, not too heavy and not just
little bites. Crunchy biscuits with pistachio bits, chocolate chi
p
cookies; healthy granola bars for those who wanted to eat something healthy [ I
binged on them cos I loved the oats and flavours in this bar] and then there
was the flavour packed sandwich with cheese, tomato and pesto sauce. There was
also a brown bread sandwich with nonveg filling in it. We also dug into Bhel puri, and few other chaat items,,,[I had tasted these earlier during the Mumbai food festival and the chat items were just as good] 

Oh and how can I not mention the hot sabudana
vada served with mint chutney- it was soft, yummy and not as oily as I have
seen elsewhere.   

It
is now time to tease those sweet buds of yours- glazed fig teacake  with little bits of the fruit in it and then
ofcourse the brownie with chocolate mousse that was sinfully divine. This had
us curious about their Pastry chef Selva, who joined us and spent a few minutes
talking about the desserts. We also got the opportunity to meet Chef Greg [who
hails from Poland and has been here in Park Hyatt since Jan14 and loves his
cuppa filter kaapi – had quite an interesting chat with him about food from Poland and how he’s enjoying his time here
] .Apart from these, there were platters of fresh fruits as well [ watermelon & pineapple]


What
more could you ask for?All this for Rs600 and did I mention it is a unlimited High
tea? Yes it is~!!


Next
time, you have a meeting or just in the mood for something fancy and if it is
between 4-6pm, head over to Park Hyatt.
