The Guiltless Foodies

We are a gourmand couple who love to discover new places and eat our hearts out. Follow us for a guilt trip along the food road.

Food-Beer Fantasy at Brewbot Eatery and Pub Brewery.

20151021_203140

Beer, one of man’s best creations needs no reason or occasion to be enjoyed. And with time the good old but boring bottled beer will soon be a thing of the past. It’s time for some artisanal hand-crafted goodness like ale, lager, stout or some malt to quench your well-deserved thirst for good beer.

Microbreweries are opening and flourishing across the country from 2008. And Mumbai not lacking behind in this new age or rather the never aging way of brewing the finest beers, has some great places spread across the city.

We visited one such classy watering hole in Mumbai called ‘BrewBot Eatery & Pub Brewery’. One of the top in line microbreweries set up in Andheri with a factory like rugged setup where you get to see the whole process of how your beer is brewed before it ends up in your glass.

Quite impressed within moments of entering this place, we were greeted and welcome by Anand – The Owner cum Chef of this amazing place. He first took us around the Brewery and explained how things work, and the type of equipment that they specifically chose to suit such a setup. He even gave us intricate details about the types of Malts, Yeast and Hops that’s imported or sourced which goes into making one of the best beers in the country. One could easily make out from our faces that we had the excitement of 7 years olds on their first ever field trip.

Lamb Albondigas

It was time to get down to business. What followed was some amazing combinations or something we’d like to call a Food-Beer Fantasy.

Served alongside the Hefeweizen (the floating head pale ale) we started the evening with some ‘Lamb Albondigas’. A beautifully plated dish with some soft lamb meatball tossed in stout beer .The accompanying white Béchamel sauce and marinara sauce gave this dish a thumbs up. The subtlety of the Béchamel sauce and the combination of Tomatoes, Onions, Garlic and Herbs in the Marinara Sauce was just too perfect. The beer wasn’t quite to our taste. Or rather very subtle or on the malty side.

Veg Phyllo Parcel

Next in line was a delicate and fragile phyllo pastry stuffed with chunky oven roasted veggies and drizzled with balsamic vinegar. This was what the ‘Veg Phyllo Parcel’ all about. A great start to the evening.

‘Spiced Crab and Cheese Crostini’ was served soon enough as we devoured the Phyllo Parcels. One could easily mistake this for the Chilli Cheese Toast and go right ahead. True to its taste, the richness of the cheese accompanied with the marinated crab was heaven in disguise. Our personal best! And this was served with the ‘Belgian Saison’ a beer that made literal sense. The perfection which couldn’t be matched by any… Bottled or Brewed! We had the Classic Stout and the Kolsch and the New Hefeweizen at our disposal. But the love for the crisp and rather spicy Saison made us stick to it. Like for ever!

Next came the ‘Eggplant Involtini’. An out of this world and hard to believe innovation with eggplant. Rich and flavourful with an array of contrasting flavours. The chunky tomato base on which these involtini sat was lip smacking and we made sure another serving was called for.

Sometimes the most shocking surprises are also the most beautiful and rather tasty surprises. Our surprise for the night was the ‘House Special Calamari’. Never in our lives have we had such an amazing preparation. The soft and chewy Calamari in an out of this earth gravy was something that will make us come back to it again and again and again.

Next in line for the vegetarians was this delightful and flavourful ‘Broccoli stuffed Mushroom’. Food is all about experimenting and this dish proved it right. Mashed and tempered broccoli stuffed in right quantities into mushrooms. A perfect and soft dish which was absolutely melt in the mouth.

‘Cottage Cheese Phyllo Roll’ was a dream dish for every cottage cheese lover. Cottage cheese cut in typically long thin strips and mixed with some shallots, garlic flakes, spicy tomato and Sriracha aioli. This mixture was batter fried. The outer layer had the best and the right crumbly texture.

Everything perfect is always dream like. So the ‘Potato Corn and Jalapeño Slider’ was our reality check. Not an up to the mark dish. The patty lacked flavour and felt too dry. Though these mini sliders looked great but were nowhere close to how they looked like.

On the other hand the ’48 Hour Pork Sliders’ were a super hit. In fact an instant hit with all the meat lovers. Soft and succulent shredded pieces with an amazing combination of sauces just enough to make it an all-time favourite.

The star of the evening on the vegetarian front was the ‘Mushroom Risotto’. Heavy on the stomach but absolutely delicious, creamy, divine with a right mix of mushroom. A complete meal and a true delight to any food lover. Our love for Risotto grew heaps and bounds with this on our plate.

The Food Beer Fantasy had almost come to an end. Stomachs full to our hearts content but cravings needed to be taken care of. That’s right… Desserts! We knew we were up for some great surprise. Placed in front of what came in as a procession were 3 amazing looking Desserts.

‘Chocolate & Peanut Butter Parfait’ was a blessing that only the privileged ones can experience. The most beautiful looking cylinder shaped soft and smooth chocolate and peanut butter topped with rich chocolate sauce. This was one of the prettiest desserts we have seen. You can have it every time… We will!

Next up was the ‘House Special Cheese Cake’. Lemon flavoured perfection which had the right amount of flavour and texture that makes the best and out of the world desserts. Totally loved it.

The third dessert in the parade was the ‘Warm Apple Strudel’. Soft cylinders of pie stuffed with warm apples and came with vanilla ice cream and some fresh cream. Take a pick and both are worth dying for.

We’ve tried our best to describe this place, that according to our choice, taste and liking. But still feel the need to express more.

    13 things to eat in one evening sounds more like a mad eatery than a brew house. Another place for the bucket list.

A sneak peak of what's in store this Summer at @antares_goa where @sarahtodd rustles up some lip-smacking grub and some refreshingly new Cocktails.
Opposites definitely attract. Enjoyed this Crisp and hot Malpua topped with creamy and cold Rabri @tajholidayvillage #goa at their Weekend Brunch. Ain't this a match made in heaven???
Objects in the mirror are much much much cuter than they appear! Repost from @keikothedachshund - Just so you know, I just got my front-seat ride with the drivers licence 🐾🐶 Woohoo 👅
Beer, Buddies & Brunch..Sounds like a perfect Sunday. Throwback to one such Jazz Music Sunday Brunch @driftersbrewingco with @khaipeenejalsa @indieopus @gastrofantasy @thefood_dude @founded_nemo @themumbaiglutton @supriyarajpurkar
We need our motivation on Tuesday rather than a Monday, reasons not just 1.What best but the creamy avocado and hummus on toast @thenutcrackermumbai #bandra .
Juss means a 'meal cooked with love' and it was precisely that when a group of us close friends met up over a vegetarian only unlimited Sindhi thali. The thali comprised of Sindhi Curry, Alu Took, Sai Bhaji,Daran ji Curry, Sanna Pakoda, Chaval, Bhuga Chaval, Bhindi Bassar, Rassewale Alu, Boondi Raita, Papad, Puri, Chapatti, Rose Sharbet and a dessert of our choice. This comforting regional thali is a brainchild of Rohit @thehungrymumbaikar & sure is a super duper hit 👍
Our love for this amazing Indian dessert - The Jalebi is known pretty well in the family and @thechiranjeevlakshman made sure he shared a piece of our love through a picture with us. This is the famous Jalebi from Puruliya district in West Bengal served only in the Shal tree leaf. Dipped in the sweetest of syrup yet retaining its crunch. Shubho Nabo Barsho to everyone as well.
Our "TAMIL NEW YEAR SADHYA" at home today was Rice with Beans Poriyal, Urulai Roast, Manga Curry, Thair Pachchadi, Pal Payasam, Murungakkai Sambhar, & Vadaam. Wishing you all a very Happy Vishu & Baisakhi.
A platefull of Goodness. The Grilled Cottage Steak with fried rice, grilled vegetables and french fries was one of the best we've had @pickleandpint @tungahotels . Apart from being flavourful this meal was a great experience. Pic @shubhamkatariyaphotography
Say 'Hello to the Queen' the most delectable dessert of fried bananas, cinnamon, biscuit crumble, vanilla ice cream, and chunks of juicy strawberries.
