Breakfast is the first meal of the day and it definitely deserves to be a good one. To cater to the taste buds of its patrons ITC has come up with a – Zesty Morning Breakfast; in which they have caringly and mindfully curated a breakfast that would make the first meal of the day wholesome. Deccan Chronicle was invited to experience the breakfast at ITC Grand Central – Hornby’s Pavilion (all-day dining restaurant).
At Hornby’s Pavilion, the composite breakfast station offered a plethora of options to choose from. Composite Cereal is a program that has been introduced with an aim to enrich the ubiquitous process of consuming cereals for breakfast through the inclusion of ancient, forgotten grains to provide the body with the fibre it needs. Sorghum, Pearl millets, red rice, finger millets, amaranth are some of the grains that are included as it is known to aid holistic well-being and helps sustain over a longer period of time.
In addition to the regular dry cereals, the signature program also provides two overnight bowls of cereal and warm porridge to provide a larger offering of not only flavours but also textures and temperature.
If you are lactose intolerant, then here you will find alternate milk options made of seeds, grains, nuts and even soya on the buffet. There is Pavilion Juicery, where you can indulge in some great tasting healthy drinks, options ranging from microgreens, sprouts and herbs to an assortment of vegetables and fruits that encourage patrons to make smart, informed decision about what they can have for breakfast. In addition to the juicer, in season, whole and cut fruits, from networks of responsible farmers ensure nothing but the best produce to kick start the day.
