Bali’s current addiction: Sunday brunch

“It’s not quite breakfast, it’s not quite lunch, but it comes with a slice of cantaloupe at the end. You do not get exactly what you would at breakfast, but you get a good meal.”

The above quote from the American sitcom The Simpsons is a perfect definition of a brunch, a new trend among Indonesian urbanites in various places, including Bali.

Indeed, Sunday brunch is a must-do activity for lovers of the island. Most hotels and restaurants have Sunday brunch on their menus, knowing that the locals and tourists will love it.

Some offer sumptuous buffets with a variety of food stations, while others combine good food with flowing wine or champagne. In some locations, are famous chefs invited to the Sunday brunch to a gala dinner. More hip

If you are in urgent need of a sophisticated brunch, visit the Sheraton Kuta. The hotel offers its Market Brunch, a time when people can enjoy fine dining with friends or family. Everything is laid-back, and harmonious acoustic music gives a soothing background noise while people eat and chat.

“We want people to come if they visit a Sunday market, where there are fruit sellers, vegetable stalls, a patisserie, but also someone who visits your lists to different dishes to offer, here” said Angga Syailendra, Starwood hotels’ assistant manager for public relations and partnerships.

The fruit station is decorated like a fruit market. Guests can use any combination of fruit juice or smoothy order and everything is fresh and to order to size.

When the fish station, there is a choice of fish , oysters and crab to salmon sashimi . All freshly cut , as in a fish market , but without the associated odor.

The pasta and grill stations are the big favorites with diners . Although there is not the same variety of meat with seafood , the smoky flavor of the grill station is really tempting . The atmosphere is not as lively as the Jemma El Fna Square in Marrakech, but it provides a clear escape from a typical hotel brunch.

My personal favorite was the patisserie . Varieties of Valrhona chocolate with a chocolate fondue fountain were placed between the beautiful Strawberry Shortcake , lemon meringue pie , tiramisu and mango mousse . They also had a variety of traditional Indonesian cakes even more inviting than the international ones looked .

The Market Brunch has something for everyone . There is a wine-making activity where you come from grapes with a large wooden feet can crush . The popcorn station is a wonderful treat for the children , in addition to which the hotel offers a special children’s corner where children , accompanied and assisted by kitchen staff , make cookies .

Market Brunch at Feast Restaurant serves brunch every Sunday 12:00 to 15:00 The package is set at Rp 270,000 + + per person. Free-flowing wine, cocktails and locally made beer costs an additional Rp 200,000. If you want to complete as much as you can drink your Duval Leroy Brut champagne brunch, to Rp 450,000 to add you.

All in all a very pleasant experience for a relaxed Sunday. It’s not over the top, but it is definitely the best option in Kuta. However, the only downside was the lack of local flair, given the limited number Balinese dishes.
