Akira Back – JW Marriott

Best way to spend a Sunday? A Sunday brunch and lots of cocktails. Not my words, but the words of Chef Akira Back himself. AND I’m in agreement. A big thank you to Chef for having me over on Sunday to try out their new winter brunch menu at his namesake restaurant at JW Marriott in Aerocity, New Delhi. How could I say no to this fabulous mix of Korean & Japanese cuisine…and Sake?!

It was still one of the warmer winter days so I could manage in a fun H&M dress but nothing too girly I believe. That bag was a huge hit with everyone. Some people actually suggested that it would make a great weapon too because it’s a bit heavy. Hope you guys enjoy the pics. Pardon me smiling like a retard while posing with Chef Akira Back – it was after the brunch and I had definitely had more cocktails than usual.

My absolute favorite EVER! The Tuna Pizza – Carpaccio of tuna on crispy tortilla perfected with truffle slices & truffle oil, garnished with micro greens and radish.
It’s light & refreshing and the way I eat it is – I make a sandwich of two slices facing each other.

Tacos – Crispy gyoza shell filled with marinated Lamb, chicken & soy kalbi tossed in kalbi sauce and finished with spicy tomato ponzu. Another great crispy on the outside and soft & tender on the inside snacky type ot item.
