Chennai is a home to many famous restaurants and brands ranging from local to multinational. Despite hundreds and thousands of restaurants available spread across every nook and corner in Chennai, Hilton stands as a class apart.
The brand Hilton needs no introduction.
For those who haven’t been to Chennai or pretty new to Chennai, Hilton Chennai is located exactly behind Ekkatuthangal Metro Station. Once the MRT is extended from Alandur to Chennai Airport(which will be done in few months), all one need to do is to board the MRT in the Airport and alight at Ekkatuthangal to gain access to Hilton Chennai for Stay, Food and Both. One can also come from other parts of the city – MRT from CMBT or by other modes of transport.
Having got the invite to try their Saturday Brunch, I knew that I would be overwhelmed by the hospitality and array of foods and my guess did not go wrong.
Mr. Achal Aggarwal, Executive Chef at the hotel, who holds his forte in Asian cuisine (with specialisation in Japanese cuisine) is looking to exemplify his breadth of culinary expertise through this whole new buffet set-up.
That’s the Executive Chef for you 🙂
The all-new buffet experience will look to offer to guests Japanese, Thai, Malaysian, Korean, Chinese, Burmese and Vietnamese cuisine and since this is the first time ever, this is being tried out Hilton Chennai is really excited about this.
Chennai being the hub of many Asian Majors like Hyundai, Samsung, Daesung, Honda, Takasago to name among the few, the expats of these companies who forms a major chunk of population has served as an inspiration for Hilton Chennai to start the Saturday Brunch.
Take a look at some of the food items that was kept for us to relish.
Hilton Chennai has ensure that both Vegetarian and Non-Vegetarian food has been given equal weightage. There is a separate LIVE Counter where you could order your food as per your preference and you get it served. Here is a sneak peek on Non Vegetraian Delicacies.
There is a dedicated Salad Counter as well.
You can add more taste to all these foods with the wide range of Sauces and Pickles.
