For most of us, Sunday is when the alarm does not ring and we can sleep in complete peace till 11am at least. Ahhh! Thank God for creating Sundays. After getting up late do you actually drag yourself to the kitchen to cook that same boring maggi and aalo parantha? At least I don’t. How about a Sunday brunch? I feel this is the best way to satiate our cravings for exotic tempting dishes. There are numerous restaurants across the globe that serve amazing brunch on Sundays. Let’s glance through some of those top rated ones:
