Do you like hash browns? I like them, in theory. Grated potatoes formed into cakes, shallow fried until crisp and served as a breakfast food alongwith your omlette and sausages. What's there not to like about it. And yet, every single place I've eaten hash at so far managed to goof up and create something you simply wouldn't like.
That was until yesterday morning. Then I went for breakfast at Vista, the coffee shop at Taj Lands End. And there on the buffett table, I met this really good looking hash brown. Perfectly round patties, crisp not just on the outside but all over. I had one with my egg white omlette and then went back to get a couple just to eat on their own.
These hash browns put Vista on my list of best breakfast buffets. And now, a list of best and worst 5-star buffets in Mumbai:
The Best Buffets
1. Lotus Cafe at JW Marriott
2. Peshwa Pavilion at ITC Grand Maratha Sheraton
3. Vista at Taj Lands End
The Worst Buffets
1. Grand Cafe at Grand Hyatt
2. Frangipani at Hilton
The ones that don't feature here either have average buffets (most likely) or are still untested (less likely, since I never pass up a buffett!)
So what's a good breakfast buffet, you ask. Watch this space tomorrow
