The mention of barbecue conjures up images of ranch and an alfresco setting where fresh meats are being cooked on charcoal fired grills. However, now you do not need to hunt for a farmhouse or ranch to enjoy a lovely barbecue. You can enjoy the pleasures of freshly grilled meats sitting by the poolside right here in Mumbai at the Hyatt Regency, Mumbai.
This upscale hotel in Mumbai suburbs just recently launched the concept of Backyard Barbeque for Friday evenings and is holding a fun buffet package comprising of different meat & vegetable options prepared at live counters and a salad & dessert bar.
I relished the succulent Cajun-spiced chicken, spicy tandoori masala chicken drumsticks, butter laced corn on cob, sausages and lamb steaks. Crunchy salad greens with a berry flavored Caesar dressing and freshly baked baguettes & other breads with herb flavored butter proved perfect accompaniments with the meats.
Both alcoholic & non-alcoholic drinks are served up at the barrel bar depending up the buffet package you opt for. The bartender churns out delightful mocktails & cocktails on request. I ended up downing the refreshing watermelon, litchi juice based FRUIT PUNCH & orange juice based BASIL ORANGE mocktail.
I concluded my gluttony on a sweet note with some fresh fruits and chocolate cake among the numerous desserts served.
A special mention for the rustic, spaced out poolside setting amidst pleasant evening breeze is the highlight of this barbeque setting and simply goes on to make the dining experience a memorable one.
So, do try out the backyard barbecue taking place on Friday at this place and let me know of your experience.
Till then, HAPPY EATING...
