Bombay Bronx has opened in Pune at Dhole Patil Road & is becoming quite a rage already. And why not the place has quirky interiors, chatpata cocktails & a lot of scrumptious finger food 🙂
The first thing you can evidently feel is the connection to various places in Bombay. Bombay being my fav city I was at Cloud 9 or rather was literally living it up Bombay style 😉 What I really really loved about the place apart from depicting different parts of Bombay was the fact that each & every wall, table, corner or even chair was very quirky & intriguing!
Definitely shows that alot of thot went into the interiors of the place & I was mighty impressed. I even noticed the service staff dressed in red shirts with ‘BOSS’ printef at the back & the metal arm band like a coolie that they were sporting too 😀
What first came onto our table was tasters of the Bombay Bronx signature cocktails. There was Iced Peru, Kokum Sour, Aam Pana, Pani puri Caipirojka (all vodka based) & the Jaljeera Sour (whiskey based) I intialy tried the Kokum sour & quite liked it as I didnt know if I could manage the chatpata taste as a drink!
There on I went on to experimenting with the Iced Peru. The rim of the glass was half lined with chilli powder & so didthe cocktail leave a spicy tinge every time you took a sip (I had asked for my cocktail to be low on the spice factor). I thoroughly enjoyed both the cocktails I had.
Along with the cocktails the food too kept pouring in 😀 (no complaining there!) The first we were given was a stand with three different Chakhna (small eats)! Well the chakna was actually served in those paper cones like you get peanuts on the road in Bombay & heres where the whole nostalgia trip began. All the bloggers were tasting the food & savouring it, some were busy with serious food discussions & me! I was looking around at every corner & enjoying the interiors the most. Yes, the minute my blogger friend Madhumita came in we couldn’t stop jabbering as it happened to be her birthday too.
We tried the Bombay Bronx Fries (made in ghee slurp :p ), Butter toasted Wada Pav, Shetty Malgapuodi Idli (cute mini idlis) Masala Fish fingers, Basa Tikka, Chicken Lollipop, Masala chicken Pijja. But my favourite was the Bhuna Mutton not only for the fingerlicking good mutton masala preparation but for the paranthas (tandoori) that came along with it which were actually soft even after 15 minutes (yes all the food drinks & banter around did distract me for quite a while)
Unfortunately what I realised was that Bombay Bronx didnt really have ‘Mains’ as such & all of the food was in one menu & the food dishes couldnt be had as a wholesome meal! But the Dongri Galli Thali & Bombay Dabba did do justice thereQ 🙂 Madhumita & me had tried the Dongri Galli Thali that had- chicken roll, mini chicken baida roti, mutton samdwhich & bhuna mutton served with parantha. This was too much for us to finish :p
As Far as the place faring On the Pocket is concerned, I would say it is fairly priced. Food dishes are more than 350 except for the Thalis that are approx 400! Alcohol too is decently priced with a Pint of beer at Rs.175, Premium whiskeys at Rs.300 & Single malts at Rs.550
