With an array of seasonal vegetables and festive flavoured cuisine, Sorrento — Shangri-La Eros Hotel’s fine dining Italian restaurant is all set to enthrall foodies this winter. Winter Brunch and Bubbly at the restaurant has loads to offer to satiate your tummy over a leisurely brunch with your friends and family. The massive buffet spread would win anybody’s heart with the colourful display of all the salad ingredients, different cheeses and marinated olives, the mains laid out in large cooking pots, the fluffy sandwiches and inviting pizzas laid out on the station, and the unmistakable sweet aromatic dessert area.
Choose from the wide range of tropical cheese and marinated olives, while you also pile up your plate with lip smacking shrimp salad, Caesar salad, goat cheese stuffed zucchini rolls, and Bruschettas — the winner of the range. As the goat cheese in the zucchini rolls melts in your mouth and you decide to grab some more, it is advisable to try out the bruschettas with your choice of topping. If you are looking for a variety of Italian delights, stick to the plan of trying every dish without binging onto any specific one.
A favourite for chicken lovers would be the Chicken cacciatore, hot from the cooking pot. As you cut through the large and juicy chicken breast, you can inhale the olive oil, tomatoes, garlic and basil leaves which have been enriching the braised chicken, and the accompanied peppers.
If grilled meat defines your idea of a perfect brunch, their medium grilled lamb chops and salmon steaks with potatoes, broccoli, and baby carrots will win your heart right away. Hovering over to the main course, it is wise to stuff your face with their homemade pasta, pizzas and sandwiches, fresh off the oven. Linguine with baby spinach, chili, garlic and prawns can lighten up the mood of any prawn lover, as you swoop in the pasta and much on to the al-dente prawns enjoying the sea-salty flavoured combination.
Unlike several food festivals and seasonal menus which lack options for vegetarians, Sorrento presents a healthy variety of options for their vegetarian patrons. The Eggplant parmigiana is one such vegetarian masterpiece. It is a unique Italian baked dish which provides a well blended taste of eggplant, cheese and tomatoes. The swell of cheese on the baked eggplant and the thickened tomato sauce produces an overwhelming aroma igniting all your olfactory nerves prepping your taste buds for a party.
What happens to be a befuddling decision is to stand over the desserts table wondering how you can gorge on all the delicious looking pastries. With over 10 different types of desserts, sweet-tooths will have a tough time picking their favourite mouthfuls. The winter menu has the classic Tiramisu, strawberry panna cotta, Chocolate decadence, Cannoli, zucotto. But the stars of the afters would be strawberries and rich Belgian chocolate, used generously in the cakes, puddings and tarts. The menu is balanced with an exciting selection of in house beverages like Ti Amo Prosecco, Grappa’s Signature Negronis, Red/ White Wine Popsicles, and Aperol Spritzers. Celebrate this winter at Sorrento with the finest bubbly and widest brunch spread over some quality conversation with your loved ones.
