Clocktower, Gurgaon - Another Favorite!
The Clock Tower is one of the many microbreweries based out of Golf Course Road.
What separates it from the rest of the lot is its history that goes long back to a school in Nainital which goes by the name of Sherwood which was set up in 1869.
Tribhuvan Yadav took all his inspiration from his time in Sherwood College and put his heart out in The Clock Tower.
He came up with this name to symbolize all the clock towers that Nainital has!
Every corner of The Clock Tower would remind you of the good old days!
Starting from the basic structures like high ceilings, and big doors which give the exact European feels that they intend to convey, looks no less than a high end palace property.
Each wall has a good old memory waiting for you to reminisce;
Be it comics like Archies, Adventures of Tin Tin, Malgudi Days, or souvenirs from different neighboring schools like Doon School.
This place became my instant favorite when I have had a whole tour of the property,
all I hoped was that the food is top notch too!
We had Navjot as our host, who is just the kind of bartender you look out for for a really nice time. He walked us through each and every aspect of the place as well as the dishes that you'll be seeing us gorge on!
We were seated with drinks specially made for us by Navjot, himself.
I was in for a treat since he made me a Rositini, something which he was working on recently and was amazing!
Loved how the rose petals floated while I had my drink having a strong orange taste, with precisely the right taste of blue sapphire.
The Sherwoodian, named after the inspiration was one refreshing drink on gin base, with cucumbers loaded, topped with tonic water. Definitely a go for someone who likes cucumber drinks!
Whiskey Sour is one of the classics when it comes to alcohol.
Clocktower has it with a twist.
If you want someone to like whiskey sour, give them this and they'll be pleased!
Sweeter in taste, yet not dominating the taste of whiskey is what this drink does to you!
For the starters,
Dahi ke kebab came stacked up line to line. It were soft and fluffy, but the presence of raisins made it a total no for me because it made the kebabs a lot sweeter than I usually like them.
They only had the vegetarian option in Nacho Reloaded. Crisp nacho chips with literally loaded cheese over the top, olives, beans, sour cream and salsa dip!
Loved the Galauti Kebab! A little sharp on the taste, but very tenderly made!
Their kebabs are great. I probably had most of them and can easily say that mutton kebabs were better than the chicken ones.
If you like kebabs, do not miss Mutton Seekh, Malai Seekh.
This platter also had tikkas, totally recommended.
We decided to go continental for the main course
Chicken alà kiév - Best item in mains!
Pepper flavoured chicken cooked to perfection
This juicy chicken was made even more amazing by the sauce that they poured over it.
An ultimate exposure to the great continental cuisine!
The best part of this meal?
The desserts, undoubtedly!
Chocolate Mud Cake was one hell of a dessert that I've had in a long time!
Served with vanilla ice cream to sooth the chocolate!
Tiramisu here was the kind of tiramisu which you'd find in Italy.
Just the perfect kind!
after such a satisfied meal and the great hospitality,
The clock tower is the first name that would come to my mind for a lovely lunch, or a pop night, or simply a relaxed meal on the terrace overseeing whole of the Golf Course Road.
