Whitefield has more reasons to welcome people from the other part of town. I'm not referring to VR Bengaluru this time :P It's about the new watering hole in namma ooru - Biergarten, Whitefield. I got an invite for the launch a month ago and had a relaxing time at this new place with other foodies, socialites, and blogger friends. So what's special about this place? I must say that they've got a vibrant and wonderful ambiance with open air as well as indoor seating, innovative cocktails, four varieties of tap beer, great food, and a friendly service.
Except for shopping I always skip traveling to that part of town. A normal human being can't imagine traveling that side on a working day. But now that Biergarten has opened its door to the public, people won't mind traveling to Whitefield no matter whether it's a working day or not.
I started my evening with some interesting cocktails. It was fun to watch the bartender making cocktails and mocktails with a little bit of molecular technique. Soon after my friends came we settled for a chitchat session, and ordered some appetizers, main course and desserts. I just felt like there was 'food flood' on our table. Service was so quick and food served was amazing. From finger food to Continental, Chinese and European cuisines, Biergarten's food menu is enough to spoil you with choices.
Some of the must-try dishes from their menu are Tellicherry Pepper Prawns, Lemon spiked Chicken Tikka, Mediterranean Veg Lasagna, and Kai Pad Krapow with Steamed Jasmine Rice. Few dishes like Pork spare ribs, Biergarten Chicken wings and nachos were only for the pics. It just vanished soon after the dishes were kept in front of foodies. But there is always a next time and I am sure when I go to Biergarten next time I will not miss those yummy appetizers. We also ordered a Corn and Spinach Dim sum for the poor veg soul. Dim sum was served with two sauces and it was good.
For the main course, I ordered Kai Pad Krapow with Steamed Jasmine Rice which was the best decision of that evening. Minced chicken in flavorful Thai sauce served with steamed Jasmine Rice. I just know that in few minutes my plate was clean. I will never say no to this dish. It was such a damn good dish. I also had a bite of tasty Lasagna from my partner in crime but sadly Lasagna was veg. I am definitely going back there to try the Chicken Lasagna. I don't like having desserts with drinks especially when I am at any event. So I nicely skipped the dessert part but when a yummy plate of deconstructed black forest was kept in front of me I couldn't resist and tried it. Vanilla ice cream on top of deconstructed cake and chocolate shaving is definitely worth trying. Red velvet coconut cheesecake was also good.
They have a microbrewery but this time Beer on tap was not that interesting as they had only three beers out of four varieties. Corona, Budweiser, Heineken and few major brands were available. I started with a glass of 'Essential for moods' which was a white rum based cocktail with ylang ylang, jasmine, geranium, lime and cranberry juice. Though drink was good it was not my kinda drink, so I changed the drink with a refreshing Smoke Orange Caipiroska. The Orange bitters mixed with vodka tasted amazing. This is a perfect drink for summer. Smokey flavor from the drink was just awesome. Do you know the size and shape of beer glass matters when enjoying your favorite beer? I opted for a glass of dark lager and it was satisfying and quenched my beer thirst. I wish they had seasonal flavor beer as well. They will have in future, it's just that I was not lucky this time. Food and drinks are reasonably priced. It won't burn your pocket.
This is the place you would love to spend time, click, tweet and post pics on Instagram. The launch was well-organized and I was lucky to meet the owner Kapil Dua who has got ample experience in F&B industry. Thanks to Manju and Rahul Nanda for inviting me for Biergarten launch. I had a great time.
A meal for two would be ₹1500/- (approximately) with alcohol. They also have valet parking. Do check out their FB page (click here) for more information and updates on interesting live-events.
