Me and my fellow foodie friends were invited by Chef Bharat Saxena to taste his specially curated menu at 38 Barracks.
38 Barracks is a military based themed restaurant and is a nice place to hangout with friends and family. They play really nice music and they even have live music in the evening on weekdays as well. They have well stocked bar and DJ console. The food is delicious with great ambience. The walls were decorated with beautiful military artifacts. They have huge seating space. The service here is really fast and the staffs also give detailed inflormation about each and every dish. Every food has a military name attached to it.
What I had:
Watermelon Feta Salad: It is a perfect start to the meal. Very refreshing!
Sergeant: The pineapple and lime juice with khus syrup was perfect.
Military Camp: It was a delight to have. It has fresh orange, peach syrup and a dash of grenadine.
Soldier’s Mirchi Wada: The mirchi was filled with tangy potatoes and was simply amazing.
Chicken Duet Tikka: The two ways marinated chicken tikka were good to taste.
Paneer Tikka Barrels: The Paneer was stuffed with veggies. I am not very fond of Paneer so I didn’t find it great.
Spanakopita: This was absolutely Oh So Delicious. The phyllo wraps were filled with spinach and feta.This is a MUST HAVE!
Olive Chicken Satay: This was olive crusted chicken and was very light and yummy.
Masala Bhutta Tartlets: For me this was a fusion gone wrong. The corn kernels served in a mildly sweet shell was nothing interesting. I found it OVERPRICED.
Honey Chili Potatoes: The thinly sliced potatoes glazed with honey should have been a little crispy. I found it very Okayish.
Beetroot Ki Galauti: I found this dish very impressive. The smokey beetroot galauti crusted with crispy jalapenos really impressed me. VERY INNOVATIVE!
Lahori Dum Aloo: The thick gravy made of onion and cashews had potatoes filled with nutty mixture.
Dal Makhani: The Dal Makhani was perfectly made and so far the best dal makhani I have ever had.
Hyderabadi Khattey Baingan: The gravy was perfectly cooked with tangy coconut and tamarind chutney. This dish shouldnt be missed if you visit here.
Barracks Special Butter Chicken: I didn’t find anything exceptional in this except the presentation.
Zafrani Tarkari Biryani: I am fond of mutton biryani but this veg zafrani biryani was so perfectly cooked with the right balance of biryani masala that I coudn’r stop eating it.
Chocolate Walnut Brownie: The brownie was perfectly baked and it was served with vanilla ice-cream.
Experience- The newly launch menu by Chef Bharat Saxena was a successful one. One will return back with a satisfied taste.
Planning to visit soon 🙂
