Oktoberfest is much awaited every year as beers from around the world are available at the bars in the city and celebrated with much anticipation.
This year, we were excited to try the special Oktoberfest menu at Q-Bar, VITS Hotel. A limited menu with about 6 dishes and 2 desserts was crafted for the festival alongwith domestic and international beers and beer cocktails.
The decor was nice and vibrant with beer quotes and a complete festive feel to it. The music was a bit too loud for our liking, but then again, it’s a matter of perspective.
Without wasting too much time, we ordered for the Chicken Roll – Flattened Chicken Breast stuffed with chicken mince and spinach. Unfortunately, we were extremely disappointed with the dish as the Chicken was undercooked and inedible. The next, we tried the Chicken Schnitzel which was served with garlic lemon caper sauce and potatoes. The potatoes were delicious and the sauce was flavourful but the Chicken, again, was bland and unimpressive. Disappointed with the food, we thought we should move on to the beers.
A special mention to the bartender who was well informed and attended to us happily. He offered us a spicy beer cocktail which was really good! We loved the flavour and the fruity aftertaste was the cherry on the cake. Next, we tried a British Bourbon Flavoured Craft Beer called Brody’s Beer. This was again our server-bartender’s recommendation. With a hint of honey, this one is a must try for all you craft beer lovers!Overall, Q-Bar, needs to definitely work on the food as it failed to impress us but the drinks were fab and we might just give it another chance for that!
