The neighbourhood’s long-awaited first whisky bistro actually manages to meet all those expectations and provides a dining experience that is likely to please almost all manner of appetites. The bar wall boasts a wide range of world-class whiskies. The list of offerings are likely to add up every now and then, there are selections of fine bourbon and Scotch already. Owners Ashish Kapur & Joydeep Singh have brought on Chef Akshay Bhardwaj, former stager at Noma to head the kitchen The menu here is not limited to clichéd gastropub food, instead centring more on other fares that pair well with whisky and other cocktails. The Pulled Pork is so satisfying. The meat is cooked to a point where it is perfectly soft but just short of dry and smothered with just the right amount of sauce filled in the Bao. Other star dishes include the African Hearth Chicken, Sloppy Poi and the Fish and chips. For dessert do not miss the Berry Balloon, the portion is ample and the ice cream cascades into a melting river of vanilla, adding a lovely creamy consistency that balances the denseness of Berry Compote. Service is just as enjoyable as the tasteful interior.
