Some new, some crispy and some flavoursome dishes have found their way into the new menu at this resto-bar.
With a brewery, peppy music and room to dance, it is the place for that zingy millennial party. And those who dance like it hot and crispy. That’s exactly what the new menu offers. Introducing the new menu, Corporate Chef, Yuvi Hospitality, Vaibhav Bhargava said, “The emphasis is not on creating a lot of drama but on the artistic blend of food with the right spices. Essentially, the authentic dishes have been retained, just subtle additions have been made; things people will enjoy with drinks. The food caters to a young and peppy palate.”
Sitting in the corner on the rooftop, happy music ringing on a Friday night, we began with some really tasty cocktails. It was a weekend night—packed and a little drunk, but this bar keeps a check on who enters. So, that’s good news for the ladies.
What we tasted:
- While charcoal might not be everyone’s cup of tea, or should I say a beckoning bite, this one dish had a good crispy layer and cheese oozed out as we cut it into two—Edible Lava Coal.
- Something which came on a bed of popcorn was—Arabic Achaari Paneer Tempura. That surely was a cool way of serving something achaari.
- Makhani Chicken Ravioli would appeal to those who must have their butter chicken every time they want to eat out.
- Teriyaki Chicken Bao is for the calorie-conscious. Drink the pitcher of beer and keep digging into these soft baos with yummy saucy flavours.
- The Mutton Rolls Royce is what no one can miss. This comes with beetroot- laced hummus and tastes good with any kind of drink. We downed it with some good gin and vodka-based cocktails.
But what I call the ‘love dish’ turned out to be a Chocolate Comet Crash which was made right on the table and attracted quite a lot of eyeballs. This live dish was laden with fruits, nuts, jams, chocolate and strawberry sauces and decorated with flowers. The ingredients would change according to the season, which means the one I had might not be there in summer.
The restaurant boasts of regional cuisine, Indian cuisine, dim sums, and, of course, a wide selection of liquor. While we enjoyed tequila-infused cocktail with a very spicy macher jhol (curated by Chef Chanchal who has worked with cruise companies and five-stars across India and in Miami), I am sure people would enjoy it with some beer too. It is cooked in mustard oil, let me answer before any purists ask. The home beers included a dark one and rose-laced which would appeal to the young ladies. The wheat beer is a favourite with most, including me.
This is one place where you can eat easy—leave the forks on the table, lick your fingers and hold your glass with dirty hands—and let the ambience kick-start a long unforgettable party.
