Monkey Bar. The name rings a bell, or just tinkers it for some; but it is indeed a renowned place in the city; for that matter even in Bangalore and Mumbai. Well known for its wide variety of cocktails, it is also slowly establishing its name through its innovative menu consisting of unique combinations, brought together from different parts of the country.
It is spread across two main locations in Delhi, Vasant Kunj and Connaught Place. Having earned its share of fame, it has recently decided to add some more items to the enlisted menus of both outlets in the capital.
We started our lunch with some Mushroom Galouti and Rajnikanth Rice. Two dishes, that would win you, despite of your mood and taste. The very fine galouti with a fine, crispy base and the perfect blend of mustard and coconut in the rajnikanth rice were two things that literally set the whole experience apart from my previous endeavours. Next on the list is definitely the cocktail that was preferred by a lot of fellow bloggers; 24 Karot, a smooth combination of whiskey, wine, passion fruit and mango. [ But there is something that i’d not recommend for the admirers of it; the Watermelon Martini. The improper blend makes it a little harsh on your taste buds.]
Next, up our list, were the two popularly appraised burgers, Go green and Yakuza (Red Burger). Where, on one hand, I’d strongly and full heartedly recommend the Go Green burger to any vegetarian who’s looking to have a splendid meal, for that matter, even a non-vegetarian; I have a little analytical perspective towards the Yakuza. Being a person that prefers to enjoy her experience, rather than going into every bit of the technical detail, I saw my friend struggling with the Red Burger (specifically the chicken patty that was sticky and undercooked) and formed a negative opinion about the same.
