For those watching both their waist and wallet,this one will have you beaming from ear to ear. Despite their five-star rating and all the glam that comes with it,city’s Hotel Mountview is going all out to please the common man on the street. After the success of their weekend Brunch priced at Rs 199 (excluding taxes) followed by the launch of executive low-cost meals at their Chinese restaurant Magic Wok for Rs 300 (plus taxes),the hotel has now rolled out special plans for ‘Round the Clock’,the 24-hour coffee shop. “Being a CITCO property,the priority has always been Chandigarhians and we want to make it a place for all to visit and avail of the best services and cuisine,” remarked the hotel’s general manager RK Singla this Wednesday afternoon.

Speaking of noon time,lunches on weekdays have undergone a serious makeover at the hotel specially with the launch of an all-new live salad counter that lets you don the Chef’s cap,though not literally! In other words one’s free to choose from a variety of vegetables,both Indian and imported and get the Chef at hand to toss up a salad of one’s choice. Priced at Rs 175 (taxes extra),the combo meal also packs in a sumptuous sandwich as well as a vegetarian soup. At a time when the world’s running on a treadmill and picking on food consciously,eating out plans are often shelved for the fear that the greasy fare will just lead one to pile on more calories! Working on that thought,the hotel’s dished out the special salad counter. “One can also choose the dressings as well and as you’ll notice it’s beyond just mayonnaise,” pitched in the F&B manager Jagan Chaudhary as we noticed the honey chilli dip as well as Indian chutneys placed along side exotic veggies such as broccoli,gherkins,jalapenos,black and green olives et al.

Further,given the coffee shop’s popularity both with guests and the city’s foodie brigade,there’s also now a special buffet lunch on. “At an all inclusive price of Rs 399 we are offering a buffet lunch that packs in four salads,two non-vegetarian dishes,four vegetarian dishes along with pulao,raita,chapattis and two desserts as well,” listed the manager. Now that’s a spread indeed!
