There is plenty on offer for all palates at Brewer Street, Gurgaon

It was a rainy day and I took a chance to review Brewer Street located in ILD Mall on Sohna Road, Gurgaon.

Millennium City with tall corporate buildings was flooded with water and had Audis and BMWs parked on the roadside as nobody was able to drive. Somehow, I covered a distance of five kilometres in two hours and reached Brewer Street. This is the third brewery on the road and is reportedly priced economically keeping the young corporate clientele in mind. Hoping they would wind up their day drinking freshly brewed beer with friends.

Brewer Street is spread around 15,000 sq. ft. with a wonderful terrace area. Street lamp lighting with wooden interiors make the place look quite rustic. Besides the four variants of freshly brewed beer, its food menu is interesting and quite extensive too. I liked the way how world cuisines are divided and yet has maintained a balance.

I tasted some nutty chicken salad and pretty much liked it. Crushed nuts added to the texture while the mustard played an important role to enhance the flavours. Though it was loaded with shredded chicken, a bit more of greens would have made it complete.

The star of the evening was chicken popcorn, perhaps one of the best I have had in recent times. Perfectly crumbed popcorn sized tender and juicy chicken.

The chef served it with a mustard mayonnaise based dip which complemented the dish quite well. Their Cajun spiced onion rings were a complete no-no for me as the onions inside missed on texture and freshness.

The pan fried chilli fish had the perfect Oriental taste with a thin crunchy layer on top which I liked.

Surprisingly, its Indian fare was very good, specially the seekh kababs.

I never expected a mutton seekh made so close to perfection in a brewery. Even its Hyderabadi murgh tikka was delicious but slightly over-seasoned.

I am sure it will go well with drinks and people would love it.

One dish which the chef needs to work on is his lamb chops.

The one which was served to me was not even charred properly. I suggest increasing the marinating period to achieve it.

An item that had everything to make Brewer Street popular was the pizza. Perfect crust and right balance of toppings made my pizza delicious.

For some hardcore roti-shoti eaters, its mutton rara gosht platter is worth every bite.

Meal for two: Rs.1500 plus taxes (without alcohol)
