Trader Vic’s Sunday Brunch, Anantara Riverside Resort: Review


Sunday is the day when the family can easily get together to spend leisurely quality time together it remains the most popular day to brunch. The ritual of Sunday Brunch has become the western equivalent of Sunday Lunch and can be found in many forms.  Brunch is unlike any other meal, it has its own protocol. It tends to be eaten in waves rather than dish specific course broken up digestion breaks. Its unhurried leisurely and takes anywhere up to three hours to complete. So sit back, relax and indulge.
