The Nashta only bhaari on the paet and not the pocket!
Happiness is a leisurely breakfast, who doesn’t love a good breakfast on a lazy Sunday morning. So, the good news is that Salt’n Pepper Village is offering the ultimate nashta buffet for the foodies on Sundays. Salt’n Pepper Village (MM Alam Road) is the perfect location for families, we have been going there since I was in sixth grade and I was always enticed by their buffet, plus the overall village theme is the best possible attraction for townsfolk.
Today we will walk you through our experience at Salt’n Pepper Village, it is a paradise for those who are fond of a pure desi nashta. The nashta is available from 9 am to 11:30 am only on Sunday mornings and it’s all you can eat without worrying about your wallets, it is only Rs. 290 per head (including tax). Furthermore, they have live entertainment, a ghazal singer with a harmonium and tabla, giving the whole place an extra ‘oomph’.
Warning: They do not accept reservations for less than 10 people and if you just want to walk in, then the seating is on ‘first come first serve’ bases. So, do make sure that you go there early if you want a good table and if you are going with 10 people then make a reservation beforehand.
The part you have all been waiting for, the part which involves the actual food. So, without further let’s get started with the ravishing food…
- Live tandoor: The greatest part of the nashta was the steaming hot naans from their live tandoor and not only this but they also had a variety of parathas (plain and aloo) and puris (plain and palak puri). I had Palak puri for the first time and it was so tasty that I had to have another one.
- Halwas: They had 3 types of mouthwatering halwas but the best out of those three was the ‘Shakkar Suji halwa’. Halwa was no doubt the best part of the buffet.
- Chanay: They had 3 types of chanas and out of those three khoye channay did not have that flavor but Lahori chanay were delicious.
- Aloo Bhaji: Meethi aloo’s flavor did not have that depth but the achari aloo bhaji was an absolute hit.
- Achaar and Salad: They had a good variation of achaars and salads, we could not make up our mind on what to pick.
- Tea: Different types of teas were available like green tea, tea with powdered milk and even ‘doodh pati’ but it was not up to the mark. The best tea out of all was ‘Kashmiri Chayee’.
The sad part was that they didn’t have ‘lassi’ on the buffet menu but the other flavorsome items compensated for it and that’s not all, there were other additional dishes as well that were available on order.
