Delhi, December 2014: Christmas or Bara Din as the Anglo Indians would say is just around the corner. And this Bara Din, Monkey Bar, India’s favourite Gastropub, is serving up Panthras, Jalfrezi, Kedgeree and Plum Cake and some awesome Anglo Indian grub with that quintessential Monkey Twist at the ‘Hobson Jobson: The Anglo Indian Christmas Specials’ at Connaught Place, New Delhi.
Hobson Jobson gave us Chappatty, Choola, Curry and Tiffin and this Christmas, much like its namesake, a dictionary of colloquial Anglo Indian words, ‘The Hobson Jobson: the Anglo Indian Christmas Specials’ at Monkey Bar, Connaught Place, New Delhi is a menu full of eccentric, entertaining and curious inspirations from Anglo Indian cuisine, to bring you a really fun and offbeat Christmas! Calling all you Porki fellows and Missy Babas to Monkey Bar, Connaught Place, New Delhi from Dec 11-Dec 25, 2014 for lunch or dinner (from 12 noon to 11:45 pm), for a taste of a time gone by!
Rethinking pub food with firm Indian roots, the Khansamas at Monkey Bar stumbled upon the perfect inspiration for the festive season – Anglo Indian food with that unbeatable Monkey twist of course! So there’s Chingree Samosa- Short crust pastry stuffed with curried prawns and fried brown onions served with mango chutney, Pui Saag and Cheese Soufflé- Malabar spinach and cheese custard baked to order served with toast wedges and tomato chutney, Jalfrezi – the chilli marinated lamb tossed with baby potato, onion, green chilies and aromatics, Kedgeree – originally from Colonial India, a wholesome combination of smoked fish, long grain rice, boiled eggs, parsley and spices; and the Dak Bungalow Murghi Roast- a lemon yoghurt spice marinated chicken curry served with saffron and coconut pilaf, roasted baby potatoes and baked tomatoes stuffed with mushy peas.
However, it’s all not just about the feast, so worry not you boozards, they have the Classic Gimlet, the Pink Gin with that dash of Angostura bitters, Oddennino’s Hot Punch with whiskey, brandy, gin, orange curacao, lemon and sugar, The Royal Bombay Yacht Club East India cocktail with Cognac, pineapple, cherry, orange, bitters and a twist of lime and the Cinopple with Whisky, fresh apple, cinnamon sticks and lemon, all lined up at the bar for you. How can we ever wrap up a festive menu without desserts? So dig in to the warm Plum Cake with Vanilla Sauce, delicious Flagstaff House Chocolate Eclairs, and sinful Strawberry and Almond Tart or rich Bibinca to complete this feast! Bring on the Bara Din, Men!
