After the successful and continuous run of Tipsy Gypsy in Andheri comes their second offering in the swanky form of House of Tipsy in Pali Hill Bandra.
For people who are not a regular to Bandra this is exactly where 5 Spice used to be, with its minimal décor and open space, House of Tipsy is spread across 3 storey; the Ground & Third are reserved for Dining while the First floor is where the Sheesha section is.
Cocktails ordered - House of Tipsy has some crafty cocktail menu priced rightly at INR 499 which is definitely going to be a crowd puller. The more Potent ones are priced slightly higher at INR 649 and they also have an extensive menu for imported beers and wines.
Stage Show : First sip and we had a winner here! Scotch blended perfectly with strawberry, lime, pineapple juice & cherry shrub made this the perfect potion; went on to have 2 of them.
Life in a Metro : Unlike the life which tends to get mundane in metro; this one sure did lift our spirits and kept things in perspective. Vodka mixed with creamy beetroot, citrusy cardamom, honey and lime juice garnished with a Smoked Rosemary for the aromatic effect.
Curried Appletini : Two part vodka with one ounce each of green apple liqueur & lemon juice shaken well to create a foam and garnished with curry leaves on top. Looked sophisticated and tasted equally well.
Rise N Shine : Just like the name suggests, time to blow some steam and wake up to a perfect brew of Gin infused with Coffee and aromatic water made from distilled kewra. The preparation of this cocktail gets a perfect 10/10.
Signal Freeze : Vodka with green mango, cucumber & lime, a bit too tangy for my taste; again depends on how you prefer your cocktail.
Appetizers & Mains ordered - House of Tipsy offers you a wide choice of Indian, Mexican, European and Continental dishes.
Cottage Cheese Piccata : Pan seared Cottage cheese with Romesco sauce, beautifully presented and perfectly cooked and we enjoyed every bite of it.
Hot Rod Chicken : Green coriander Chicken skewers with pepper mayonnaise; cooked perfectly and tasted well.
Murgh Banno Kebab : Traditional chicken kebab but well marinated and cooked so perfectly that it simply melts in your mouth. (Recommended)
Cilantro Prawns : Presentation a perfect 10/10. Taste a perfect 10/10. Coriander prawns cooked to perfection and juicy in every bite accompanied with a neatly placed poached egg.
A Fishy Affair : Tender chunks of charcoal grilled fish to perfection and each bite was savory; unfortunately the affair with boiled eggs was not a perfect match.
Charcoal Chicken Pizza : Thin crusted chicken pizza with mozzarella cheese and homemade sauce completed out dining experience for the day.
Dessert : A sweet ending is always required and they only have Dessert of the day!
Hazelnut Chocolate Mousse Cake : Smooth and creamy texture of this mousse and the spoon glided right through this one, had the perfect flavors of hazelnut & chocolate.
House of Tipsy is a place where you can come and kick back at any time of the day and enjoy the leisure ambience they have to offer or drop in to have sheesha with our buddies or enjoy couple of drinks, basically House of Tipsy will cater to all your moods and needs!
