Christmas Lunch at MoMo Cafe, Courtyard By Marriott, Bhopal


For a Bengali who has spent all her winter vacations with a heavy dose of Christmas celebrations, moving to a part of India where celebrations are pretty dull meant a visit to the Church for midnight mass and that’s all. This year incidentally, we were having a lazy Sunday and ended up at MoMo Cafe, Courtyard by Marriott really late, for lunch.

The buffet was mid-way and towards completion but as is always the case at this place, the staff was more than welcoming. Assistant Restaurant Manager Amit and his team assured us that we can have our fill and ensured that we don’t hurry through our meal.

The Sunday buffet at MoMo Cafe includes unlimited alcohol, which sets the mood for the meal as a relaxed one. The starters, like always were delectable. Since we’d joined the lunch quite late, the pictures of the food displays might seem somewhat empty. But, despite being a regular at the place, I had to click pictures of the place and the foods, because this was a hearty Christmas meal! Special complements to the chefs for cooking up such a heart-warming meal.


The Thai Green Curry deserves special mention as it was exceptionally good! Watch out for this dish if you are at MoMo Cafe next.
The Shepherd’s Pie melted in the mouth and had just the right flavours.
Citrus glazed fish with black bean salad. Perfect – would be an under-statement!

The dessert counter was a treat and in accordance to the theme of the day. The options were endless and each offering was as much a treat to the eyes as it was a delight to the taste buds. I don’t really have much to say as adjectives fall short, so I made sure I click pictures of most of them. The counter also included Indian sweets like Malpua, besan laddoo, etc.

Christmas cake!



Mildly warm and filled with soft dry fruits, this Plum Custard was just waiting to melt in our mouths!



The food was divine with starters being a mix of Indian and Thai dishes, the main course including extensive vegetarian and non-vegetarian delights and the dessert counter as shown above. The hospitality, as always in every Marriott property we have been to, is extremely warm and courteous. Always a wonderful experience to be a part of events at the Marriott and its properties.
