BBQ Night at JW Marriott- Sahar

Mumbai rains are magical with the lowering down of temperature and then it all begins. The food cravings start making you feel absolutely crazy. Its time to dig into a plate of hot spicy kababs, chaat, grilled tikkas, all this done indulging carefree without counting those dreaded calories. It was the right time to get an invite from Fat Toxic Bawarchi (FTB) along with JW Marriott Sahar to a blogger’s table on Saturday the 20th June 2015, for a food filled evening and to enjoy the BBQ Night.
Ambience of J W Cafe
I had read and heard so much about the lavish buffet spread at JW Cafe from fellow bloggers and my daughter BrandedBawi who recently attended a Easter Sunday Brunch. The JW Cafe ambience is clean and classy. Boasting of an area enough to fit in around 200 people this cafe is certainly spacious and well laid out. It serves food of different cuisines around the world. Our bloggers table was right in the middle and had a pretty all round view of the cafe.

Chef Danish Merchant-
Senior Sous Chef took us on a tour of the buffet, introducing the different chefs specializing in those cuisines, manning the counter. During the flow of the evening I saw him checking out the details on every counter and he charmingly obliged us by answering all our queries. Truly a master, Kudos on managing such a lavish buffet, making  sure we enjoy the evening and the renowned Marriott  hospitality.
The Buffet tour-
This is a Buffet set for a king. You really need to skip all three previous meals of the day to enjoy this scrumptious barbecue food filled buffet. It offers   variety of cuisine you cant even imagine. They have wide spread available from Chinese, Thai, Continental, Japanese, Middle Eastern and of course ” Balle Balle” Indian Cuisine .

Tikkas, Sheek , Kababs and more

A special mention to the Sheek kababs on this platter. They were a perfect explosion of flavours and spice that went really well with the mint chutney served with it.

The recommended Fig tart

I was not very impressed by the fig tart. The taste didn’t do much for my palate. A bit dry, crumbly and less sweet. However you have lots of other options to make it up.

Crepes served with Cream and Nutella.

There are super big selections of desserts and chocolates. I had a bite of the salted caramel pudding  and was really impressed, so went back to have another.  Desserts included kulfi, barfis, ice creams and a variety of Indian sweetmeats, pastries, tarts, cheese cakes and brownies. The bite size desserts make it easier to try most of the desserts displayed.

Final verdict-
I loved the overall dining experience at JW Cafe. The fantastic  variety  food and efficient staff, the meal is definitely  worth the price. I am surely going for more!
The evening ended with a group photograph  with the Fat Toxic Barwarchi Trio and my other fellow friends.
