Gabbar’s Bar and Kitchen – Ye Khaana Humko De Dey Thakur !

December 7, 2016

We all know as a fact now that this country of ours is primarily high on two things – Bollywood and Cricket. Somewhere in between these, the culinary experience comes into play as well.
So, when sometime back word was in the air that this new resto-bar named Gabbar’s was about to open up in the city, the intrigue level was skyrocketing.

When the chance finally came to visit this cool sounding place tucked away in Ho Chi Min Sarani, all expectations were simply exceeded.

Stepping inside, the first and foremost thing which hits the eye is the quirky way in which the entire place has been done and set up. From brick outlay walls adorning typical Bollywood quotes and graffiti , and the obvious quotes from the man Gabbar Singh himself to the swanky way in which their menu cards and staff uniform has been curated, everything has a touch of your typical Bollywood masala to it.

All of this is amplified by the tracks which are played here too, with popular Bollywood numbers on loop – it’s eerily close to making you feel like, you’re in a completely different world all together.

That being said, lets take a look at what we had and how it actually turned out to be !

kebab-gabbar

Things were kick started with chicken Potli Kebab, which came with a dash of flavors and was grilled to perfection.

balam-puchkari-gabbars

This was followed by something they call Balam Puchkari – Golgappa dish with mashed potato stuffed, and dhania chutney moleculed. This is yet another concept gathering some good steam here in the city, and Gabbar’s definitely does justice to the molecular gastronomy aspect, in terms of both quality and presentation.

gola-gabbars

Ab Gola Kha – A heady concoction of orange margarita in the ice sphere. This was a typical chilling refreshment, a bit too sweet towards the end but who cares? A little extra sugar never hurt nobody!

hunan-chicken

Lichi and Kaffir lime drink, Hakka Noodles, Hunan Chicken were all well prepared. The Hunan Chickn especially was drool worthy and was hands down, the best pick from the main course.

Hazaro Khwaishe Aisi – A pot with gooey chocolate, vanilla ice cream and crushed crisp oreo smithereens on top. To say that this is a chocolate lover’s holy grail would still be an understatement, but at the end of it all, just this particular dessert warrants at least one visit for all chocoholics.

hazaro-khwaishe-gabbars

Jangaal Mein Mangal – This was a black forest concept busted and molecular gastronomy infused dish with choco syrup poured and cherries sprinkled. More than the dish itself, the way it was prepared right in front of our table was left us awestruck.

Overall, a wonderful experience indeed – a bit on the quirky side, this is an ideal place to wind down a long tiring day amid good food, a pretty spectacular ambiance and yeah, good selfie spots ! 😉
