Sunday is either the end of the week or the start of the week – depending on how you look at it. One thing for sure, however, Sunday is also brunch day, and there’s nothing like a great beachside brunch to start or end your week.
Welcome to the Living Room
The newly opened Living Room in Morjim plays host to their Pan Asian Sunday brunch at Life, restaurant bar and beach lounge. Set on a wooden deck a stone’s throw from the water, the vibe is absolutely divine – everything you want for that perfect weekend getaway. The sea to your left, food and drink on call, and some great electro-acoustic live music courtesy the folks from Posh Entertainment. The deck itself has a variety of seating options – high stools by the bar for those who want to prioritize the liquids, large round tables for the chit-chatters, and smaller intimate tables for those who want to indulge in the experience.
A Pan Asian spread
If Asian food is your thing, then the menu definitely has something to make your week. Starting with a salad, you can get off to a fresh start with Som Tam, a Japanese Beef Salad, the Chicken Glass Noodles Salad, or just a simple Fresh Ice Berg Salad. The star of the brunch is definitely the sushi rolls, delicately hand rolled and served on order. Options include Salmon, Prawn or Veg Tempura, and a Fusion Uramaki as well. A special menu of sushi rolls also features a few exclusives such as Hamachi Rolls, Spicy Tuna, and a unique Warm Tempura Salmon.
If you’d like to take a quick break from the Asian cuisine (though we don’t see why you should), you could try some of the wood-oven fired pizzas that come in a range of toppings such as Peri Peri Chicken, Pepperoni, or just a plain Margarita. With your break done, step back into some Thai Curry and Jasmine rice, or maybe try some Asian Zing Wings or a Chinese Eggplant with Garlic Sauce. Complete the experience with something for your sweet tooth – A Panna Cotta, a Fruit Salad, or perhaps a Chocolate Brownie?
Take on the week with some liquid courage
The Pan Asian brunch has a couple of alcohol packages for you to choose from. For Rs. 1200, you can choose the Gold Package which includes favorites such as Kingfisher Ultra, Black & White, Gordon, Ketel One, Bacardi, and a selection of white or rose wine, with champagne cocktails. If you want to go a step up to the Platinum Package at Rs. 1800, you could be sipping on Tanqueray, Ciroc, or Black Label, in addition to the wines and champagne cocktails. Regardless of what you choose, the drinks are unlimited through the duration of the brunch so don’t hold back!
