I vividly recollect my childhood days being spent outdoors. Cycling to school and tuition along with friends and stopping by to purchase Phantom Cigarettes. Yeah, Phantom Cigarettes played a big part while growing up as we sat by the river bed, our cycles on the side and acted out movies scenes with the sweet cigarettes in our mouth.

Then along came the luxury of Magic Pops. Magic Pops were a bit of a luxury because they were a few rupees costlier than the daily pocket money which was handed out. So these could be purchased only when I went shopping with my mom. The nostalgia of having them pop in the mouth soon as you put them in. Those were days which have now given way to the Cadbury’s and the Bournville’s of today.

Thankfully, the Kid’s themed Saturday Brunch at Amara brought back a tide of memories of those glorious times. The thought to having to spend your school money to buy samosas from the stall beside the school, Kathi Rolls and Pakodas. The Brunch featured a lot of dishes like Chaats, Masala Papads and the likes. It was like a pure reminiscence of the times spent while growing up.

The live Maggi and Pav Bhaji Station was a delight. The Maggi could be ordered in any style you wanted it, be it Nainital, spicy Andhra way or an absolutely new way of cooking Maggi just the way you like it. I also adored the Keema in the Main Course which was absolutely perfect with a buttered pav.

The Dessert section was the “Trump Card” of the brunch though. The desserts had been modelled in the theme of Cards we used to play. For people who’ve spent quite a large part of their adolescence playing with WWE or Cricket cards would understand the joy of trying to win over the other person’s cards by using the Trump Cards. Also neatly spread out were sachets of Magic Pops, Boxes of Phantom Cigarettes and Poppins. There were also Muffin Burgers. Jujubes, Waffles among the dessert section which would definitely get the kid out in you.

Amara has been one of my favorite buffets in town. I’ve seldom been a buffet-kind of person yet Amara in Trident Hyderabad is one I’ve had my best of meals. It isn’t just about it’s extensive spread that Amara puts out but the freshness of the ingredients all which makes the food so much more delicious.

With the Coast to Coast promotion, Amara pays tribute to the freshest of seafood this time around. Mostly when restaurants do Coastal food promotions they concentrate on the coasts of India,but not Chef Manik and his team. Trust Chef Manik to think out of the box and cover the coasts of the world at Amara. It’s almost like docking at every port of entry of a new country with each dish.

From the shores of Marseille in France, the delizioso food of Italy, Caribbean Islands and Western Coasts of the US, the fiery, spicy and tangy food of the Asians and Indians, the buffet at Amara had it all. The soup section has been their strengths and this time too it didn’t disappoint. The Thai Coconut Chicken soup was especially wonderful. The Seafood Bar had us in glee with crabs, shrimps and extensive selection of fish with choices of dips and sauces.

Among the salads I especially enjoyed the seafood ceviche and shrimp cocktails. The Appetizers on our day at the buffet had Kerala style fried fish among other Asian starters. Now it was the Main Course which is the one going to leave you spoiled for choice. Oriental, Italian, Indian and Caribbean…phew it was task that I thoroughly enjoyed going through.

The highlight of the buffet was always going to be the seafood and it was the Gulf Coast Seafood Stew which stood out among them all. Notable mentions among the ones on my plate was the sweet and tangy Doi Maach of Bengal with plain rice and also the Phuket Massman Curry. As is my habit when dining at Amara, I had ordered up a plate of the ravioli. Amara is one of those restaurants which dishes up the best pasta ever as part of it’s best. In fact the one served at the buffet can beat any standalone restaurant a-la-carte dish while at it.

If you have a sweet-tooth,you’re going to be spoilt for choice here at Amara. It features nearly everything from Creme Brulee to Pastries to Mousse. The Coast to Coast promotion is on at Amara, Trident Hyderabad till the 30th of November 2016. Not a bad way to dine out in style to end the month of Movember.

Brunches are always the answer for weekend food fix. On Sundays we have a NO-Cooking policy, when we relax over a glass of wine and delicious food. Brunches have always been the best part of my week. A time to spend with family, friends and conversations. As the sparkling wine pours down the your glass and you look out to soak in the afternoon sun, you know Brunch had been created to give a new definition to ‘Gratuitous Indulgence’.

It’s no secret that Trident hosts a beautiful brunch every Sunday. An elaborate spread ranging to Sushi, Panipuris, fresh salads, Pasta, desserts and so much more had me going Phewww. If you’ve been following our FoodDrifter page, you must know of our loves for Salads. If I could be inspired from ‘Lord of Rings’ then you’d hear me quoting “One Good Salad To Rule Them All”.

Coming back to the brunch at Trident, the first to get your attention is the fresh and colorful ingredients. Bright colors awash from quality ingredients and we couldn’t have asked for more. A good look at the Salad section and I must say I’m thoroughly delighted. From simplistic Watermelon and Feta to Mozzarella in Bell Peppers. There is also a bit of the healthy Dhokla sneaking in while the Non-vegetarian options range to Chicken Tagliatelle with Citrus dressing, Chicken Roulade and Zucchini. A delicately prepared Smoked River Salmon and Orange Salad had me smiling on a wonderful afternoon.

There was quite a crowd by the Panipuri section which gives an option to choose between the regular and Vodka version. Hic….A little bit of caution to not go overboard with a bit too many of those. There was also an ornate plate filled with the choicest of Sushi options and a Dimsum section with the option to get freshly made ones right at your table. Being Trident, how can their Italian spread be not good. The live Ravioli and Pasta counter is fabulous. Giving you a choice of sauces, they whip up those dishes and serve you right at your table.

But I had been so content with my salads, that little was left was left to fit in the main course. But a little look through the spread and I couldn’t hold myself back. The Bengali preparation of Macher Jhol was terrific with plain white rice, but the stand-out was the Malay sea-food preparation in coconut milk which was nothing short of words.

Roasted Vegetables

The dessert counter was extensive. The Strawberry Parfait and Crème Brûlée were quite delectable. Cronuts, Donuts, Croissants, Muffins and other baked goods lined up generously and made it difficult to choose and pick. The Kaffir Lime Baked Yogurt was enticing enough to pick up a another.
