Hi folk I did miss the mega launch of a very different kind of ministry in CP the other day. Yes friends, it was a Ministry of Beer, a exotic Lounge spread over three floors.
So here a got another opportunity to visit MOB for a dinner on one fine evening. The ambiance gave me a feel of a feel of an ultra-modern restaurant with innovative drinks, tasty food and also molecular gastronomy.
MOB has been called India’s first steam punk themed bar and it surely is going to give a hard time to others in the industry in Delhi. As soon as you enter the brewery, you get a glamorous feeling engulf you. The interiors are designed artistically and features mechanical parts, antique lights, and Victorian furniture across three floors. One gets mesmerized as he spots exposed metal gears, mechanical clocks, and dangling lights on the walls. It surely is an architectural gem and has the best decor in the entire town.
It soon is going to be the biggest craft breweries of Delhi along with multiple food options. Prateek Chturvedi, Director, MOB said “Pubs come and Pubs go – but the challenge is to create something that withstands the passage of time. We have tried to build a place that grows on you – every time you visit MOB, you’ll notice something you haven’t noticed before – and the more you’ll fall in love with the place”
Naveen Sachdeva, Director, MOB also added, “From steam punk elements – to awesome food – to amazing and friendly service that will redefine the word “sumptuous” – we aim to reinvent the nightlife of CP at MOB.”
The place offers a culinary delight with global cuisine on its palate, and when you are seated in the main bar area, you feel amazed. We did love the uniquely designed interiors, thirst quenching beverages and friendly staff, but we hope that in the coming days the management works a lot on the starters/munchies that go with the drinks.
Oh yes, during our visit, we did find the starters not upto the mark. We were here on a review and attending the bloggers meet. The starters served were at random; most of them not on the prescribed menu. And most of them looked as if prepared in a hurry to feed the big number of bloggers on the floor.
Let’s talk about food : We were served a few starters; Palak Pata Chat, Chilli Paneer, Hara Bhara Kebabs, Veggie Sushi, and a Honey veggie platter. Out of all these only the honey veggie platter was upto the standards that the décor has set up for MOB. We also had the big Aloo Tikki Burger and that saved the day.
The other thing that saved the day was the mocktails. I tried Watermelon n Mint Mojito, Virgin Sangria, and Passion Love. I loved the flavours that the mixologist at the bar was able to retain in the Mojito. The Sangria was also good. The best part though was to come in the form of the main course. We had Dal Makhani, Paneer Lababdar with assorted breads and steamed rice. Combination of both the Paneer Lababdar and Dal Makhani was great to have with breads. Not having eaten much in the starters section, I feasted on the main
Coming to the Dessert section, there was nothing to offer, as the manager told us that they outsource the desserts and there was nothing that they wanted to be reviewed. Address – M-44, Outer Circle, Connaught Place, New Delhi, 110001 Meal for two – Rs. 1200
