Treat yourself to international flavours and free flowing spirits in style and globe trot across the cuisine map with Cantonese, Tuscan and North Indian kitchens to relish the various specialties at K3 ‘s Winter Sunday Brunch

Those of you who have seen ‘Sex and The City’ would remember the four iconic New Yorker girls got together over brunch to talk about each other’s love lives and whatnots! To me it feels as if the idea of a Sunday brunch has become the metropolitan ritual to hang out over sumptuous food before heading back to work on Monday !The Winter Brunch at JW Marriott's K 3 is one of the most popular brunches in Delhi. And yes, it’s not only for the metropolitan girls, but also for families to have a delightful meal together.
I have friends, who religiously book a brunch deal every Sunday, and I am talking the free-flowing champagne variety, some have their favourites. Others pick a different hotel or restaurant every week. …Last Sunday I visited K 3 and was not let down!
MY BUFFET STRATEGY: I first tour around the space and make a mental note of each station’s highlights so I don’t end up in an ordeal with no space to enjoy the plethora of offerings that far too many never make it to.
THE K 3 BRUNCH EXPERIENCE: This period-perfect all day dining food theatre on the lobby level of JW Marriott Aerocity looks like it could have been here forever ( read because it is buzzing with people) , though it only opened last spring. Executive chef Girish Krishnan’s locally sourced and seasonally adjusted carte which explores a whole gamut of gastronomical delights from all over the world is equally timeless. He’s even more creative at brunch, where the sea food bar featuring Kerala Prawns, Pomfret and other sea food made to order with an array of marinades, is a real treat for fresh catch from the backwaters. His ‘Eat street’ is  fashioned like a bustling street serving authentic street food like Moong Dal Vada, Scrambled Carrot Cakes, and Fritto Misto stays true to the spirit of Delhi.
Specials like steamed Chinese Bao get amply stuffed with more of that gently pulled pork, an over-easy egg and a splash of sweet hoisin. But Krishnan’s knockout punch comes with the courtyard section featuring the back yard barbeque, adopting age-old rustic cooking methods from the far west to conjure up delectable roasts with a choice of meats and vegetables, traditional sauces and accompaniments. And be sure to save room for the dessert station which takes centre stage with an decadent variety of home-made ice creams (my favourite  ...Masala Tea), warm Belgian waffles, brioche pudding, chocolate delicacies and lip smacking freshly baked tarts, cupcakes and Chef Narendra’s ( bakery chef) signature creations……YOU will thank me!

The term brunch was first coined in Great Britain in 1895 by writer Guy Beringer who described it as, ‘Instead of England’s early Sunday dinner, a post-church ordeal of heavy meats and savoury pies, why not a new meal, served around noon, that starts with tea or coffee, marmalade and other breakfast fixtures before moving along to the heavier fare? By eliminating the need to get up early on Sunday, brunch would make life brighter for Saturday-night carousers. It would promote human happiness in other ways as well. Brunch is cheerful, sociable and inciting. It is talk-compelling. It puts you in a good temper, it makes you satisfied with yourself and your fellow beings, it sweeps away the worries and cobwebs of the week.’
