Sunday Brunch is meant to be a time to relax, eat, drink and generally be merry with your family or friends. Free-flowing beer and wine, comfortable seating, preferably open-to-air area, nice music and some delicious grub – now that’s a Skol Sunday Brunch for you!
Newly opened Skol, has recently launched their own version of the Sunday Brunch. I got a chance to enjoy my last Sunday at this place and here is my take on the Skol Sunday Brunch
Lets talk about the seating first. They have indoor as well as outdoor seating as is the norm these days. I particularly love their outdoor setup – tables and chairs arranged beside the trees, comfortable seating and ample distance between the tables makes it my pick. Smoking zone is also outside but it is separate from the main seating area. which depicts that a lot of thought has been put to make sure everyone is comfortable.
- They have three packages which can fit everyone’s budget and requirements.
- Unlimited Food – ₹ 799/- ++
- Unlimited Food + Beer / Sangria ₹ 999/- ++
- Unlimited Food + IMFL / Cocktails ₹ 1299/- ++
In my honest opinion the prices are at par with the other brunches around town and Skol has few tricks up its sleeve to make it a better choice over the other available options
We started with few cocktails and Sangria. A lovely blend of wine and fruit syrups and topped with freshly cut fruits defined the sangria while the Electric LIIT is sure to send you up there, if you ain’t high enough already!!
We started our brunch with Chip and Dip – A perfect companion to the sangria. Nachos with salsa and hummus played well with the drinks and stimulated the appetite. It the perfect balance of creamy texture from the hummus, tartness from the tomatoes and crisp from the nachos. Although I would recommend to avoid the baba ghanoush.
Chili basil fish fingers – another hit. Loved the texture and and the delectable flavor of basil.
Jhol wings was another crowd favorite. Made with bhut jolokia (ghost pepper) this dish got the fire started. My pallet was cleansed and enraged at the same time. Although I knew that this spice level is not for me, I couldn’t stop picking up the next piece.
We also tried Burmese Khow Suey. Satiating well rounded dish. The noodles were long and soft while the contrasting condiments provided the texture and character to the dish. Lamb lasagna is another filling dish which complements the sangria and cocktails well.
The Live Counters 🥓
What adds the ‘X’ factor to the brunch is the live counter setup with variety of dishes on offer. Piri Piri Bhutta, Chicken Thecha Skewers and BBQ Vegan Sausages are some of the dishes which made it to the table and I cannot complain about anything here
Something which ranks very high on my list when I judge any restaurant is desserts. At Skol Sunday Brunch this was definitely the hero of the show. Baileys kharwas was the first we tried. Baileys infused kharwas which held its texture on the plate and had that gooey, melt in mouth feel was astounding.
Many places around town are coming up with Sunday brunches and I think every other place is getting one or the other element right. But at Skol the Sunday Brunch is not just a fluke meant to lure in the young crowd. Its meticulously crafted delight meant for all age groups. Live music 🎵 by Joy Dham was a treat. Lovely voice of Shashank with curated mix of old and new Bollywood songs sets the mood for a long and enjoyable experience. The cherry on top is that its pet friendly 🐕
