Those who stay in the suburbs or visit often are well aware of this area.. where there is a pub at every two minute distance! Loud groovy music and party crowd is very common here. To stand out or make a mark is difficult with so many options. But Glocal Junction does so with efficiency.
Huge place divided into an outdoor and an indoor seating, the indoor seating in turn being two leveled, huge iron structures giving you the feel or an under construction place, Glocal Junction has a great ambience. Fun music, a good enough expanse in the menu and friendly , prompt service!!
We visited the place on a Sunday evening and it was full with a happening crowd within no time!
Here’s a peep into what we tried :
We are at a pub. Has to start with some chakna right?
Popcorn in the form of a chaat/bhel – Popcorn mixed with freshly cut tomatoes, onions, and coriander. Quite innovative and really light. Slips right through your fingers and into your mouth, without you, even realizing it. Sneaky
Glocal Fries – crispy french fries served with lots of melted cheese!
Nachos – Tortilla chips loaded with veggies, black beans, cheese sauce and salsa. Crispy chips, already salted and spiced with a super delicious salsa sauce which makes you keep coming back for more.
Grilled Paneer with red onions and bell peppers – Peri Peri style – Soft pieces of paneer/cottage cheese tossed in a really spicy peri-peri sauce and served on skewers with bell peppers. The paneer cubes ,melt in your mouth and mixed with the peri-peri sauce, make for a delicious combination. The quantity is less though and the presence of a boiled corn cob and mini buns make it a little confusing.
Berrilicious and Chilli Monk : Berrilicious is a sweet concoction of various fruit juices, a good option from the limited mocktail menu. Chilli Monk is a really confusing drink. It failed to pack a punch. It had a sweet base and was topped with a green chilli giving it the desired chilli flavour as in the name but yet not good enough to be ordered again.
Paneer Tikka Pizza – The pizzas at Glocal Junction are really famous and for a reason. This one was a thin crusted pizza, loaded with veggies and soft delectable pieces of paneer. What stole the show, was the melted cheese that would rule every bite you took!
Firni Creme Brulee – Dessert are generally the last thing that a pub cares about getting right! But Glocal Junction stands apart.Delicious creamy texture, perfect top burnt caramel layer and consistent taste! Loved this to the last bite!!
Overall Experience: Good food, amazing ambience, this place should be on your list for the next hangout!
The Battle: The amazing ambience doesn’t want to let you leave. The music is amazing and the food good, perfect for wanting to stay back for just a little longer!
