High tea at The Dining Room, Park Hyatt

Cookies, chocolates, nutri bars
Cakes, breads and sandwiches
Sabudana vada, Bhel puri, sev puri, dahi papadi and more…
Coffee and Tea
And there were fresh fruits too.

Was it a birthday or just a celebration? It felt like a bit of both…

We were at The Dining Room in Park Hyatt to celebrate their 2nd birthday and check out their high tea that was launched on the very same day.

Plush seating areas, a beautiful view of the pond outside and huge french windows streaming in natural light, bringing the place to life.

It is quite the ideal setting for an evening meet, a business meeting, a casual catching up session with friends or an opportunity to dig into interesting bites, and sip on filter kaapi from the traditional dabara..

Quite a spread, not too heavy and not just little bites. Crunchy biscuits with pistachio bits, chocolate chip cookies; healthy granola bars for those who wanted to eat something healthy [ I binged on them cos I loved the oats and flavours in this bar] and then there was the flavour packed sandwich with cheese, tomato and pesto sauce. There was also a brown bread sandwich with nonveg filling in it. We also dug into Bhel puri, and few other chaat items,,,[I had tasted these earlier during the Mumbai food festival and the chat items were just as good] 

Oh and how can I not mention the hot sabudana vada served with mint chutney- it was soft, yummy and not as oily as I have seen elsewhere.   

It is now time to tease those sweet buds of yours- glazed fig teacake  with little bits of the fruit in it and then ofcourse the brownie with chocolate mousse that was sinfully divine. This had us curious about their Pastry chef Selva, who joined us and spent a few minutes talking about the desserts. We also got the opportunity to meet Chef Greg [who hails from Poland and has been here in Park Hyatt since Jan14 and loves his cuppa filter kaapi - had quite an interesting chat with him about food from Poland and how he's enjoying his time here] .Apart from these, there were platters of fresh fruits as well [ watermelon & pineapple]

What more could you ask for?All this for Rs600 and did I mention it is a unlimited High tea? Yes it is~!!

Next time, you have a meeting or just in the mood for something fancy and if it is between 4-6pm, head over to Park Hyatt.
