Brunch by the Blue - Sunday brunch at Aloft Bengaluru Cessna Business Park followed by Christmas Cake mixing!



Aloft Hotel at Cessna Business Park, Bengaluru is one of the Marriott Hotels in Bengaluru which I wanted to visit since very long time. Santa came early this year and my wish was granted. I was here last weekend for a lavish Sunday Brunch at poolside followed by a Christmas cake mixing ceremony. I always enjoy my visit to any of the Marriott properties. The staffs at Marriott hotels are very professional and best when it comes to unparalleled hospitality. At Aloft also the story is no different. The Execute Chef - Aniket Das and his team made a fabulous ‘Brunch by the Blue’ spread which left us with no words.









As I was a bit late for the brunch, before taking the plate I grabbed a glass of Chandon Sparkling Wine. The Diwali edition Wine bottle designed by Designer Manish Malhotra will surely catch your attention, if not any other bottle at the Bar counter. A sunny afternoon at the beautiful poolside with live music and sparkling wine in my hand made me hungry enough to check out the live food counters. There were separate sections for salads, Cheese and bread, Italian, Chinese, Grill stations (for Veg, non – veg and seafood), Main course and desserts.







I tried a small plate of mixed salads, Chicken roulade, spicy grilled chicken & prawns, and a portion of chicken and mushroom pizza. For the main course, I tried Chicken Biryani, Kadhi Pakoda, and Dal. By then I heard a lot about the main course especially for the Meen Kulambu and Nalli Nihaari. Sadly I couldn’t try those as we getting late for the cake mixing ceremony.

If not for any other dishes, just go for this brunch only for their desserts. It was pure art in different forms, colors, flavors, and shapes. We always go gaga over International Chefs who createbeautiful pastries. We should learn to appreciate our local Chefs first. They are so talented and can match the International standards for sure. Everything was so heavenly especially the Macarons, Orange Delice and Mango Entremet – French desserts at its best. Overall I enjoyed a great brunch in recent times. They also had Indian desserts like Rasgulla, barfi, and lot more.







Soon after the brunch, we head to the cake mixing area where there was an enormous quantity of dry fruits and nuts were arranged beautifully on the long table. The beakers filled with liquors were just waiting for us. It was a fun-filled evening and the group went crazy by going live, clicking pics and also most importantly soaking all the stuff together for a perfect Christmas Cake. There was a small tub of non-alcoholic fruit mix for kids to enjoy the fun of cake mixing. That was so cool.
