With the concept of Sip Savor & Shop, the Market Brunch at Feast, Sheraton is surely the ideal way for the whole family to gather and enjoy a leisure Sunday brunch with an open market setting. The concept of Market Brunch being very unique to Hyderabad, I wanted to try it out ever since its inception. Was happy to have been invited for a review by the management – an invite that was too hard to resist.
Before I could get started, Harsh & Prathyush from the marketing team, took me around all the sections and elucidated on how the concept of Market Brunch works. Apart from the huge variety of food on offer – a children’s play area with fun activities, live music and a live bangle making counter were the other inclusions. I was inclined towards the market arrangement where once could shop for fruits, vegetables, cold cuts, breads, Frappuccino, cigars, cheese and many more all of them fresh as per the hotels standards and priced at local market prices and not the inflated hotel price.
Back to the food, Feast offers Global cuisine from Indian to Oriental and Continental… name them and they have it !! Having dined at Feast quite a few times earlier, I skipped most of the common things that I’ve already experienced like the live pasta counter, the mezze station, the live salad counter etc. and left the choice to Chef Kapil Dubey himself who treated us with his signature dishes.
With a glass of Classic Shiraz for company, started off with Indian bbq & grill non-veg platter that included Dohra Seekh kebab – an exclusive combination of chicken & mutton sheekh and Murgh Anardana Roll – chicken with dry pomegranate seeds & chilies while the veg version included avocado and cheese wrap with Brussel sprout salsa. I liked the fact how succulent & flavorful the meats were, especially the anardana roll which was the star among them. The oriental platter included threaded chicken wrap with kimchi as an accompaniment.
Next up was Spinach and Panco crusted Prawn served with cranberry aioli that worked as a delicious side. The Chicken satay with peanut sauce that followed was as authentic and delicious as it could get. With duck & turkey on offer, tried the braised duck pancakes served with barbecue sauce. Duck meat in itself had a very distinct flavor and this when tried with barbecue sauce was super delicious. Being a sea food person, I would’ve liked the grill to have more sea food options.
For the mains, Natukodi Kura with puffed rice was first up. An all-time favorite delicacy of Rayalseema, this one was spicy, robust and delicious with a country style touch. Zafraan pulao with waterchestnut & corn spinach was just about decent enough and nothing extraordinary but the star of the mains definitely was the paneer mawa roll in makhani gravy with pesto naan. Paneer roll in the rich buttery creamy makhani gravy complimented very well while the pesto naan was the show stopper.
The dessert platter included a dry fruit sandwich, chocolate marquise, cheese cake and the Red wine Jelly.
With almost a dozen chefs dishing out some delicious foods under the experienced hands of Chef Kapil Dubey – the Market Brunch at Feast, Sheraton is indeed a delicious affair and is a place to be for a leisure family outing over food, drinks and grocery shopping.
Thumbs up for this one !
