Parade into 38 Barracks for awesome food
Food Review of 38 Barracks in CP
YB here team loves to indulge in food especially when the spread in front of you is enormous and is value for money…Bingo! You have got us and how! One beautiful evening I marched up to a memorabilia of military fan art and wall hanging with a LIVE band prepping up to perform. Loved the simple and minimalist decor which stands tall to impress – let’s check out 38 Barracks.
Military Style quick service and good food was what I was expecting at 38 Barracks. Bang on, I was welcomed by hospitable staff I was taken into a separate dining area which was booked for us bloggers. I like the cosy little area where I made myself comfortable… and started looking up the bar menu as they call themselves the filling station. Soon enough we got our Kala Khatta, Narangi & Blueberry Buntas on the table…Kala Khatta was my favourite! We parade into 38 Barracks!
Well if you actually go through the drinks menu at 38 Barracks, it is quite impressive and the range of mocktails and cocktails they serve is nothing short of impressive! Started with Amuse Bouche…Don’t go by the presentation and drink it up…it is an appetizer with watermelon cube, feta cheese, lettuce leaves and balsamic vinegar balls. The sweetness of watermelon with the tangy vinegar flavour was just enough to kick start my hunger pangs.
Starters were like a military affair..lots and lots of food in huge quantities on the table kept coming and filling us hungry people out there. Food became all the more interesting when bloggers met up with Founder Ankur of 38 Barracks and the Chef Gautam Chaudhary who is a highly recommended in the industry circles and has aced the art of Progressive Cuisine, spending decades in the hospitality and food industry, having worked with Great Kebab Factory, Oberoi and Radisson.
Started with Paneer Tikka barrels with chaanch (interesting presentation and well made..liked it even if I am not a paneer buff) ,
Olive Chicken Satay (tender chicken served on skewers glazed with sauce… was beautifully cooked and I loved it),
Masala Bhutta Tartlets (this was highlight for all vegetarians as they chomped off all those tarts before I could grab my second),
Chicken Harissa Tikka (succulent chicken nice and flavour-some), Beetroot Galouti ( this dish was a shocker as I never fancy beet root dishes, I really enjoyed the crispy exterior and melting interiors…lovely).
After having my fill with the starters lets march on to the main course… They had an interesting spread of multi cuisine specials …Had Nalli ki Nihari served along with dal makhani and saffron khichdi (the mutton & well cooked). How could we not try Barracks special Butter chicken? Then followed up with Murg Banjaara with their special Blue cheese naan (you got to have a taste for this …it grows on you…u must try it for a change).
Dessert Time..and we Baked Rasagulla Pie served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream this was a bit high on the sweeter side but was heavenly in taste. If you got that sweet-tooth in place, you will relish it.
One tip from our side is …If you are a hookah lover, do try out the interesting flavours they have…totally worth it!
Had an amazing time here as the food was definitely worth a comeback and is economically priced as well.
