Butters Tipsy Gastropub [Fort]

Butters Tipsy Gastropub is the latest addition to the sprawling pub and food scene in Fort. We visited BTG for dinner the other day and were mind-blown. Though they probably wanted us to be high and tipsy on their amazing (we hear) cocktails, we are high on the delicious food, tipsy and giddy with excitement and satisfaction.

From the ambience to music, to food and drinks, Butters gets it right. A beautifully lit mesh of sorts greets you once you enter. As you step upstairs, the bar is what catches your attention first. A modish look overall, it is lit up and well stocked. Did we mention we are fans of how the lights jazz up the entire place? It is dimly lit and yet bright enough. The ambience makes you want to sit back and relax but the music makes you want to groove. The area is spacious and there are different options of seating available.

The menu gives us quite a few options. Pick quick bites or chakna combinations and your drinking session is surely sorted. There are Indian snacks like bhajiyas, bhurji pao and drunken bhel. They have sandwiches, baos, burgers, pizza, pasta as well as Indian main course like naan and dal. The full package. They have made a name for themselves for their cocktails, but it is worth mentioning that their mocktails are equally good.

Here is what we got tipsy on, at Butters Tipsy Gastropub –

Bhaji Pao – Bhajiya pao with an option between kanda (onion) bhaji, methi bhaji or cheese pakora. We picked onion bhaji. Crispy fritters that were topped with a little chaat masala and served with a sweet-spicy mint chutney.

Sorry, were we supposed to describe that?

There is cheese, lots of it and three different types of it. Do you know how high that made us? So ya, excuse us if we forgot that we have to describe it 😉 😉

Cheesiness aside, (pun totally intended 😉),  the 3 Cheese Sandwich at BTG is heavenly and loaded for sure. The aroma of cheese coupled with butter made our mouths water. Must try! And it is served with french fries for added happiness and salad if by some cosmic mistake it made you guilty 😉

Chef Lampok’s Paneer Satay

Chef Lampok’s Paneer Satay – Soft paneer that is covered with a thick layer of batter and grilled. It has a soothing lemongrass aroma and a slightly charred flavour. It was served with a peanut dip that was slightly on the sweeter side.

Lasooni Palak Paneer aur Naan – This dish features in the desi corner of the menu but it should feature in the Do Not Miss Out corner. Delicious is the word to describe this one. The strong aroma makes your mouth water and threatens the chances of getting a decent picture 😛

It is creamy and has tons of chopped garlic and onions to flavour it up. The paneer pieces are really soft and well marinated and the palak gravy is another level of goodness. Served with naan and papad, this is one meal you must have here.

From the mocktails we tried Melon BullTropical Thunder and Gin Cin Apple Jack.

Melon Bull and Tropical Thunder

Melon Bull is a mindblowing mix of watermelon juice and red bull. It has a sharp taste and the chunks of watermelon add a little drama to it.  Tropical Thunder is a thunderous concoction of orange and pineapple juice, both in the right proportions to leave a strong punch. This one has a slight tart though grenadine adds a little sweetness. Loved this one too! Gin Cin Apple Jack is slightly on the sweeter side but a fine combination of apple juice infused with cinnamon.

We also tried the Orange and Strawberry Slush which is really good. They have arrived at the perfect balanced flavour of sweetness and sourness in this chilled drink. And the colours! Loved it.

The star of the dinner was the Raspberry and White Chocolate Mousse. My god what a delight this one was. Smooth in texture, not overly sweet and so delectable. The sharp tart of raspberry paired with the slight sweetness of white chocolate gave this heavenly dessert. We licked out spoons till they were spanking clean 😛 This one is definitely a must try at BTG.

Pizza Box [Vile Parle]

Square Box, Round Pizza, Triangular Slices – I am confused!

This is what I remembered when I first read the name – Pizza Box! Totally random, we know! Anyway, keeping these random thoughts aside, we walk into the outlet which is located in the residential neighbourhood of Vile Parle (East).

The outlet is small and decently done up, no show, just simple seating arrangements indoors and outdoors. An array of pizza boxes are lined up in a corner and with that one can tell that the major focus is on delivery. A few quotes about pizza hang on the walls while a host of appreciative comments from patrons decorates another corner. The menu is all pizza in various sizes and a variety of toppings. There are a lot of options for vegetarians as well as non-vegetarians.

Here are the ones we tried:

Hot Head –> One of their hot sellers and notoriously spicy! Lots of spicy red sauce at the base with a ton of toppings that include onions, bell peppers, jalapenos and chilli. It leaves a sharp burning sensation in the mouth and is definitely not for those who cannot handle spicy. We loved the delicious red sauce at the base which packed a punch with the hot-headedness!

French Fries Pizza – There’s cheese and there are french fries. What’s not to love in this one? The fries are crispy and go so well with the sauces and cheese. There is also an option to add veggies to the french fries pizza.

Mumbai ka Flavour –> We have to agree, wherever we Mumbaikars go, we add life to the party. And so does this lip-smacking chatpata and masaledar pizza! Those terms don’t belong in a pizza description? Wait till you try this one! Capsicum, onions and tomatoes marinated in flavorful and really masaledar spices and sauce, this one is amazing! Mumbai ka Flavour is totally Mumbai-style scrumptious and a must try here!

Tip: They tend to make the thin crust pizzas a little crunchy (which we absolutely loved), so if you aren’t a fan of the same, just tell them and they will oblige.

Pizza Napoli –> Loaded is the word to describe the Pizza Napoli and Loving it is the phrase to describe our reaction to it! The oregano and basil do wonders to the pizza, not only making it fragrant but also mind-blowingly tasty. Sun-dried tomatoes, mushrooms, olives and more are decked on top of a thin crusted base. The flavours of each of the ingredients, especially mushrooms and tomatoes are enhanced by the oregano and herbs. Loved this one!

We also tried the American Corn & Chilli Crostini which was impeccable. A thin baked upper layer, which when bit into lets molten mozzarella cheese ooze out! Green chillies add a slightly spicy tinge to the otherwise cheesy delight. Loved it!

Pull Apart Garlic Bread is a golden, crispy and garlicky loaf of bread, that is loaded with cheese! The flavours of garlic, butter and cheese blend so well to make this one! Perfect!

Paneer Stromboli is another delight here that we really loved. A Delicious mixture of paneer and veggies in a mustard based sauce. The combination with cheese went so well together. It is served with a salsa dip which is yummy!

Pizza Box also has a dedicated Pizza Cone menu. So we decided to try the Paneer Tikka Pizza Cone which is the same as Paneer Tikka Pizza but in a cone. The top is loaded with cheese and baked to form a cheese covering. It tastes delicious.

Overall, Pizza Box is a place you should definitely consider to satiate your pizza cravings! Order in or just go grab a table here. Also, they have unlimited buffet with pizza, garlic bread and beverages at ₹269 on Sundays!
