Somewhere in 3500 BC a gentlemen in Iran was sipping his mug of naturally fermented beer and talking to his fellas of how it was the best thing that had happened to him. Little did he know that this water from the gods would be the second most consumed beverage for centuries to come. Now god did not make enough of this miracle to last the present day population and so he sent Brewbot with its little microbrewery to spread the love. Unfortunately we found love in other things and went there only for the food.
From the designers perspective:
Is it always about the food? Definitely not! How a place is built makes all the difference to a restaurant experience and Brewbot gets off with flying colours there. They have quite some seating in the exteriors open to sky and this area gets really bright and lively as the sun goes down. Interiors are done with sofa seating across wooden tables and stand around counters overlooking the microbrewery behind the bar. Open ceiling, raw walls, and old school décor gives the place the wacky look it deserves.
Drink it baby!
While the rest of the table picked their beer from the choice of 4 different craft beers we choose to pick the Cool Passion & Guava Spicy Mary. The Cool passion being a tropical drink is a mix of passion fruit juice, orange juice, pineapple juice, sprite and crushed ice. It was the best drink among two we ordered.
I did not try The Guava Spicy Mary at brew bot for the first time so pre hand knew it would be nice and it did not kill the expectation.
For the Love of Food!
Started with the vegetarian Braciola called the Eggplant Involtini. This innovative dish was eggplant (Brinjal) and zucchini rolls, dressed with feta, garnished with fried basil leaves served alongside Marinara sauce and bread is a good pick.
Goat Cheese Lollipops were a visual treat and that’s that. We realized we are not goat cheese people after one lollypop each. You could let this one pass.
Beetroot & Goat cheese salad was a combination of Roasted beetroot, Arugula (Salad rocket), caramelized walnuts and walnut dressing. The caramelized walnuts gave the salad a good flavor.
Farm fresh pizza was absolute rightly baked with a crisp thin pesto base topped with mushrooms, bell peppers, pumpkin, pine nuts, cheese and ricotta (whey goat cheese).
Penne Arrabbiata cooked with bell peppers, sautéed zucchini, garlic and parsley was very well cooked with the arrabbiata sauce stealing the show.
Mushroom Risotto was our newfound love at Brewbot. With a little salt sprinkle the dish became my best pic from this meal. It is a must try!
Potato Corn & Jalapeno Slider sounded interesting but did not live up completely. The potato & corn patty was a little more crisp than required and the bun not very soft. You can avoid this one.
The desserts stole the show. The house special lemon cheesecake was extremely fresh and had a melt in the mouth texture. It is by far the best lemon cheesecake we have had.
Chocolate and peanut butter Parfait looked and tasted the same, amazing! Someone who likes peanut butter should just not let this one pass.
Warm apple strudel served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and whipped cream was picture perfect and a treat to our taste buds. The strudel stuffed with slow cooked apple was warm and not overly sweet to our liking.
Chocolate Fondant was our least liked of all four desserts but that does not take away anything from how good it was. A fondant filled with hot chocolate served alongside a scoop of vanilla ice cream is just the right combination.
How may I help you?
An equally divided table of vegetarians and non-vegetarians was given the right suggestions and served at the right pace. Very importantly you can ask them to give you tour of their microbrewery and they are delighted to explain the entire process in detail so you get to know how that mug of beer you are carrying around was made. They are also very informative about their food they serve.
Hawk eye view!
This meal at Brewbot brought a smile to our face with the food, warmth and very importantly the desserts. We have previously visited them on evenings and they are a very good option to spend some time with friends over drinks. Good food, rightly priced drinks & and a lively ambiance is what summarizes Brewbot.
