BENGALURU: If you are are having a lazy Sunday and are looking to spend the afternoon having a brunch at a place with an “aerial” view of the city, get into this restaurant located 30-floor-high for a Retro Asian Brunch at High Ultra Lounge. With great food, be sure to make the experience memorable with live music.
As we entered the property, we were served a glass of sparkling wine before we took the elevator. Choose your table wisely – open air or inside the restaurant – as the wrong one can mess up your experience. We got to participate in grape stomping session.
The place scores more for its ambiance than for the food it serves.
The presentation of buffet takes you back to the days when CDs were a craze. The disks are placed on the buffet table to make it interesting. The live food counters for sushis, tepenyakis, and grills, draw us towards them.
Vegetarian and non-vegetarian sushi, which are the chef’s, speciality, offer three choices each. California Maki Roll with an outer coating of sesame seeds will be loved by anyone trying sushi for the first time. It looks unique and delectable. The nuttiness and crunchiness of the sesame seeds adds to the bland and chewy sticky rice. Corn and Nuts Dumpling placed with the sushis has a sweet and nutty flavour.
The chicken wings are saucy and sweet. The Sweet Corn Coriander serves as a perfect accompaniment with the drinks. Wine and Fruit Cocktail enhances the taste of the starters.
In the main course, Steamed Rice with Thai Green Curry Vegetables outdoes the rest with its thick and creamy texture. Vegetarians too have ample choice here.
Asian sago, in the dessert, will remind you of Indian kheer. As you bite into the sago, you can taste cononut milk, in which it is cooked.
Mango Panacota is a custard like pudding that will take you back to summers, when the king of fruit is predominantly available. It can be had by somone looking for something not too sweet. Other desserts served are fruitsalads, ice creams and mini brownies.
The brunch opens on every Sunday at 12 noon and ends at 4 pm.
