Ek Bar Introduces An India Inspired Menu This Festive Season

With autumn kicking in and the festive season just around the corner, the F&B industry in the capital city is gearing up for a busy yet exciting season ahead. 


Popular foodie destinations like the Ek Bar have already introduced their fabulous new menu to cater to the ever growing demands of discerning customers, by bringing in a vast selection of vibrant, unique, and flavorsome India inspired plates, curating ingredients and food stories from all over the country and presenting the same with a modern twist.

Ek Bar

Yours truly was there last week to sample the new menu by Chef Sujan S, and everything, right from the food and beverages to the ambiance, brimmed with its own narrative.

Cocktails

The new cocktail menu at Ek Bar contains a unique collection of deliciously intoxicating beverages with seasonal flavors.

Each cocktail is packaged beautifully and is deeply characterized by strong Indian flavors, making the homegrown menu an instant hit with patrons. Other highlight IMHO is the use of season's freshest produce with some of the best and top shelf liquors.

All cocktails at Ek Bar are served with a unique garnish of dried fruits and vegetables such as lemon, orange, beetroot, plum, and more.

Here is a list of my favorite cocktails at Ek Bar.

The Royal Indian Punch

True to its name, this classic Indian beverage was once enjoyed by the royals in the early 17th century. The signature cocktail is now available at Ek Bar with equal grandeur and style.

Served in a royal teapot, this drink is made with an eclectic mix of whisky, kahwa tea, grapefruit syrup, spices, and ice.

Murabba Mule

A much appreciated signature drink that combines recipe for the traditional kairi murabba (green mango marmalade) with homemade ginger beer and Vodka.

City of Nizams

This has to be my all-time favorite turmeric and gin based cocktail, infused with orange syrup and tonic water.

Old Delhi Sour

A classic whisky sour reinvented with an in-house aromatic rose hip shrub.

Queen Victoria

Another signature cocktail made with whisky, aamada or fresh mango ginger, lemon, and honey water.

Ek Bar Kanji

A sour and fizzy drink made with Tequila, pickled beetroot, in-house kanji shrub, and lime. The use of traditional recipe of beetroot kanji (made in Indian homes) is commendable.

Phool Bagan Phizz

This aromatic and fizzy floral drink combines the unbeatable flavors of Mogra or fresh Jasmine, infused with gin, lime, sugar, egg white, and sparkling water.

Sattu Sharbat

This savory drink is Ek Bar's take on the classic Tom Collins. Contains Vodka, sattu or roasted gram flour syrup, in-house spice mix, and salt.

Kala Amritsari

Things gets sour and fruity with this Vodka based cocktail, which contains childhood flavors of your beloved plum variety, along with lime and egg.

Degree Kaafi

This bitter sweet concoction is certainly not for the faint-hearted. Degree Kaafi is Ek Bar's very own twist to the iconic 'degree coffee' of South India, with the addition of Gold rum, bitters, coffee syrup, and tonic.

Madira

This aromatic and bitter cocktail is an ode to the classic era of homemade and aged alcohol from ancient India. Made of Gin, masala tea vermouth, and in-house Cointreau.

Khari Baoli-Old Fashioned

Did you know that Khari Baoli is Asia's biggest spice market since the 17th century?

This spicy and strong cocktail is Ek Bar's take on the 'old-fashioned' drink, infused with spices from Khari Baoli. Contains Bourbon whiskey, spice infused demerara syrup, and homemade bitters.

Chhaang

A relative of beer, Chhaang is mainly brewed (using barley, millet, or rice grains) and consumed by native areas surrounding the Himalayan belt. Contains whisky, barley syrup, and lime juice. Best served piping hot in brass bowls or wooden mugs when the weather is cold.

Chhaang

With such a wide array of beverages, it comes as no surprise that Ek Bar has made it to the Conde Nast Hot List 2016 for the best bars in the world!

Food

This season get ready to savor some of the best regional street food classics with personalized twists only at the Ek Bar - from Kolkata's favorite creamy Chicken Rezala to Champ Pakoda Pav - make sure you're up for a whole lot of tasty surprises!

Ek Bar scores pretty high in rendering a modern twist to their seasonal collection of regional delicacies, inspired by and handpicked from the roots of India. The best part is that they use unique, homegrown and farm fresh vegetables to churn out the finest delicacies one after the other.

Jimikand Galouti Kebab in Pita

Tender and flavorful galouti kebabs made using yam root (jimikand).

Kataifi Wrap Chili Paneer

Delicious chili paneer wrapped in a kataifi or vermicelli like pastry, and served with murabba lemon, pickled onion, and homemade chili-peanut ketchup.

A meat lover's paradise! This thali contains classic selection of homemade Malabari prawn sausage, spicy pork sausage, chicken tikka sausage, and Goan chorizo Scotch egg, served with Ek Bar ketchup. Makes for a perfect bar snack and a carnivore's dig.
