Nice to meet you Harry
Yipppeee! Its friday night again, and visiting another new Cafe and Bar with my blogger friends was the highlight of my weekend. This time its the Newly opened Harry’s Cafe and Bar at the Fun Republic- Andheri ( W)
Harry’s Bar and Cafe is not a very huge place but had an instant appeal to a new comer like me. The lighting – nice and dim, music-cool groovy, the perfect volume so that conversations can be enjoyed. Conversions on each table is most private as the other people cannot over hear you. The seating was comfortable and air conditioning was pretty cool.
The ambiance is what cheers you up totally, Huge TV screen, pool table, DJ corner, and a welcoming Bar. Lovely place to hangout and chill with your friends. There were groups of friends enjoying the IPL and cheering for their favourite side.
YES…FOOD.. Thats what bloggers scrutinize, let me warn you, and that was what I was there for too!!
The Starters kept arriving on the table at regular intervals, and guess what ! We had practically every starter on the menu. From my most favourite dish- Fisherman’s Basket to my not so favourite Stuffed Mushrooms, I tasted all trying to evaluate each one of them. Most of the starters were well seasoned and presented.
The Chicken Satay was a killer, and the Crispy Chilli Potatoes was to die for. Take a bow Chef Vicky Ratnani who has partnered with Harrys Bar & Cafe to give everyone some superb ‘ Comfort Bar Food ‘. So sit back and check out some of those mouth watering starters we savoured that evening.
I relished them all, the Chicken Lollypop, Veg Vietnamese Spring Rolls, Wasabi Cottage cheese squares, Chicken Satay, Crispy Chicken, Nachos, Honestly I have zero complaints about of any of the starters. Every dish was drool worthy, flavoursome and fun with the drinks.
MAINS AND MORE
Now there is more, take look at the Salad, Pasta and Main course served. I found the pasta not so cheesy as I like it and abit under seasoned. However the salad was fresh and delightful in every morsel. I found the Thai curry over seasoned with salt. Gave it a miss after a bite.
Dessert had limited options, However much I wanted to try the upside down ice cream cone in the jar, we all unanimously decided to have the Drunken Volcana cake. This was a combination of warm Chocolate Lava cake, vanilla Gelato and Flambe. Wowie, I squealed like a little child when it was brought to the table !! The plate got dancing to the beats of the DJ when lit, then died down, only to excite our tastebuds with the sexy sweet chocolatey taste.
The bar menu had an extensive good collection of wines, shots , and a different range cocktails, signature as well as usuals. The Dirty Harry is the signature cocktail here and I had the privilege to taste it. It was vodka based with iced mist flavour, demerara and lichi. Not a very good looking drink but a stunner on the palate. The alcohol prices when compared seemed okay to me.
The bar tender and server Dilip was the highlight of the evening. He kept coming up and giving his recommendations and entertained us with his chirpy personality. I got a picture to prove it.
Warm and hospitable staff and nice ambiance grabs all the attention. Perhaps the one thing I’d come back here would be for the good music and fun vibe.
One of the best places to chill after a hectic week on Fridays as well as weekends.
GO VISIT, YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED.
