Make way for beer cocktails, draught friendly fries, chicken wings and beer bellies. Monkey Bar Kolkata has got the Beer Mrkt in town and it is here to stay till September.
Beer Mrkt Cocktails
The words ‘beer’ and ‘cocktail’ together makes most people wince and that is exactly what Monkey Bar wants to change. They want to show that beer is a great drink not only on its own but also when mixed with other ingredients. They have come up with seven concoctions that include the popular ‘Shandy’ (beer and lemonade) and other cocktails with fun names like ‘Beer Bong’ (beer and dark rum), ‘Bloody Roman’ (the beer version of Bloody Mary) , ‘Monkey Mule’ (beer, vodka, ginger ale, lime and mint) etc. I tried two from the menu – Beergarita which is beer, tequila and lime juice. The other cocktail is more mild and a perfect brunch drink – Beermosa with beer, orange juice and sparking wine. All of these cocktails are priced really well and are within the Rs 250-Rs 300 range.
Beer Mrkt Food
With beer, you definitely need meat and something fried to munch on. The Beer Mrkt menu has five types of fries and chicken wings flavoured in six types of sauce. The fries are topped with cheese and other good stuff like mushroom, baked beans etc for the vegetarians and chicken and ham for the carnivores. For the chicken wings fans, you get to choose from hot sauce, bbq sauce, Caribbean jerk sauce, sticky Korean sauce, hot n’sour sauce and honey mustard. Hard to pick a favourite because all of them compliment the wings so well. The fries are in the Rs 180-Rs 220 price range. The wings are priced at Rs 280 each.
There’s nothing like a glass of chilled beer on a hot summer day. There’s nothing like a refreshing beer cocktail on a hot day either. And if it is raining outside, add some fries, chicken wings and go hic hic hurray!! 🙂
I was invited by the Management to dine at the restaurant for review purpose.
