The Striking Pub – Striker Pub & Kitchen
Striker Pub and Kitchen, Delhi has been synonymous as one of the best places to hangout. Striker is present in Golf Course Road in Gurgaon and also at Ambiance Mall in Vasant Kunj. The place is huge and is known for its music and decor. Posters of different artist’s adore the walls. A central stage is housed which hosts events every few days. The bar is the highlight of this outlet and runs from one corner to the other. In short the ambiance is stunning!
Sweet Symphony – Drink with Orange Juice and Lime. A bit too sweet. 7/10
Cucumber Cooler – Drink made from the pulp of cucumber and rock salt. Great summer cooler. 7.5/10
Avalanche – A twist to Virgin Mojito with ginger and mint leaves. Refreshing drink. 7.5/10
Tandoori Stuffed Mushrooms – Stuffed Mushrooms with Khoya and nuts. Like the smoky flavor on the mushrooms served with mint chutney. The mushrooms were deep red in color due to food coloring. 7.5/10
Vada Pao – Not a traditional Vada Pav as it didn’t have the basics ingredients. The Vada was crispy and thin unlike traditional Vada Pav, ok overall in taste. Missed the dry Garlic chutney and fried green chili with my Vada Pav. Striker should rename it. 7/10
Crispy Chili Fries – Not sure if the head Chef was called for this dish. I am sure he can do much better than this. Very basic French fries topped with sesame seeds, again heavy on the food coloring. 6/10
Coconut & Jaggery Icecream – Liked the taste of Coconut and Jaggery. The ice-cream had crystallized which left a water taste. 7.5/10
Brownie with Vanilla Icecream – The Brownie has gone wrong from top to bottom. The Vanilla icecream seemed much better in taste. 6/10
Striker invites different bands to play from time to time and this time was “Roots”, thank god for sending them there. They played amazing music. The service was not upto the mark and had to remind the waiter now and then. The value for money is also low for this kind of food.
