A token of respect, appreciation from a civilian to all the men in the armed forces; is what 38 Barracks is about. From the moment you enter this one; it will hold you tight in it’s military charm; from the designing, decor, walls; everything is done so precisely; I was stuck in awe. Enjoy the multi-level and different eating sections at 38 Barracks.
To begin with; I had the most amazing “Chicken Duet Tikka”; it’s called so because there are two types of chicken in the platter; hence it’s a duet! And, this one is a MUST HAVE! One is a spicy tikka, while the other is a malai tikka. The malai Tikka was delicious! Next, is the most unique version of a Galouti; “Beetroot Galouti” ; which is stuffed with “beetroot”; you must have this crispy kebab if you love beetroot. Team it up with green chutney and onions; and yummmmm!!! I also had this uniquely done; “Mirchi Vada”; if you are a mirchi pakora person; HAVETHIS!; The mirchi vada is crispy and the served with a delicious tamarind chutney. Since I love tandoori chicken, I went for Tandoori Chilli Chicken which is spicy-chilly and “tandoored” to perfection! Loved it with green chutney and spiced onions. Ok, moving to the best starter ever, “CLASH OF CLAN”; this dish has two types of fish; fish tikka and fish orly. This is the best fish platter ever and I totally enjoyed this one with green chutney and tarter! It’s known as “Clash Of Clan” because the platter represents two types of dishes “Indian” and “British” on the same plate.
For mains; I had Chicken Banzara with Garlic naan and Lachha Parantha; after some unique and tasty starters; the main course did not disappoint me a little.
With the tasty food; I sipped on the gin and rose based, “Angle in the Lamp”, it’s called so because it is actually served in a lamp; and I loved it’s uniqueness. I’d also love to recommend you the army camp which is coffee infused whisky; so coffee lovers, you know what to order; I sipped my friend’s “Watermelon Thunder”; which is refreshing, chunky and icy; I loved it; LOVED IT! And, the home-made sangria; is a must for me.
For Desserts; I ate something which seemed the most unique in the menu; “Baked Rassgulla Pie”; and; it’s topped with vanilla ice cream. I have never really ha something like this before; and I completely loved the warmth of the rassgulla infused pie blending super well with the vanilla ice cream!
Teamed with an amazing music, a lovely hospitality team; and great food, you will love this place! You must visit 38 Barracks to experience the same.
