Jeon eatery has lot to offer. From midnight buffet to à la carte, food is served almost 24X7. We tried from Indian to Italian and everything turned out well; however, deserts absolutely dampened our enthusiasm.
Jeon eatery, an all day multi-cuisine restaurant at hotel Sea Princess, is a new addition to the hotel’s list of restaurants. Situated in the upscale neighborhood of Juhu, this 3-4 months old eatery is a premium and a fine dining place which serves food almost 24×7, and, most importantly, it is a sea facing hotel. Our foray into this restaurant on a lazy Saturday afternoon was quite eventful where we regaled ourselves with food, except desserts which were extremely disappointing, and spent quality time of near about 2.5 hours.
Amidst a colorful and a loud wedding at the hotel, our excursion was delightful where their elegant and classy ambiance was one of the most significant aspects. Completely revamped and redesigned, Jeon is quite spacious and beautiful. Their not-so-loud and ambient atmosphere was fascinating. I loved the feel. The private sections – 180 degrees covered – around the wall were perfect for families to spend personal time, and as you must have guessed it by now, we too sat at this section to have a quality time.
Jeon eatery is one of the rarest places which serve midnight buffet. Their breakfast buffet, too, did sound very interesting which costs 650 (approx)per person including the taxes. Their Sunday special brunch comes with a luxury of relaxing in their swimming pool where the customers can enjoy the food as well as the pool without any additional cost. In other words, food is served throughout day and night, and this fact does make this place an exception.
We tried from Italian to Indian, and everything turned out well. Being a five-star hotel, the prices are reasonable too.
The food did surprise me. I do not expect much in a multi-cuisine restaurant as I have hardly seen a place which serves everything in a good manner, but Jeon eatery turned out to be different. Their mocktails, risotto, Indian curry and breads, khichdi etc. were quite good, and I was happy with the quality and the experience.
We started with strawberry and basil lemonade which were very refreshing. The crispy balls with the filling of mushrooms and cheese was next on our appetizers. The impeccable crunch was wonderful with the beautiful brown color; however, the not-so-flavorful mushroom filling was a tad let down. Still, the overall dish was good.
Squash risotto with Pesto sauce was next on our menu. I am not a big fan of Risotto. The high amount of starch always repel me from splurging on it; however, the touch of squash was very flavourful, and the pesto sauce further enhanced the level of the entire dish. Cooked nicely, the merger of squash and pesto flavors was something different, and I really liked the combination.
Then we decided to go with Indian food; hence, we ordered parathas with vegetable korma kind of curry. The aroma was beautiful, and we truly enjoyed this Indian dish with the crispy paranthas. However, the Indian Khichdi, which is considered as the most humble dish in our cuisine, was marvelous. The touch of Desi ghee with aromatic flavors in it further elevated the experience. The amazing flavors gave a strong punch to my olfactory censors, and it was a great way to end our main course.
Desserts were a disaster…….
Desserts are a great way to end any meal. They are a linchpin to happiness, and we all drool over their heavenly sight. However, Jeon did not give us a good experience in desserts, and they almost dampened our enthusiasm. The Tiramisu was chewy, and it lacked the airiness. Also, there was hardly any coffee flavor. In other words, the dessert did not taste like Tiramisu at all. The caramel custard, again, was not soft and fluffy; it had a minor chewiness which did not let us enjoy this dessert. Their chocolate ice cream was too good, and that was the only way we could make ourselves happy in the dessert section.
I am definitely coming back as I really enjoyed their food along with a suave ambiance. I would love to try their breakfast or Sunday brunch, and that will be my next target. So, stay tuned for more updates.
