When I planned to visit Hungry Monkey, I was not sure how my experience would be because their menu generally revolves around signature alcoholic drinks and the place is basically a pub. Now, I am strongly adhered to the idea of avoiding intoxicants of any sort including alcohol. Thanks to Team Hungry monkey and their generous staff for hosting an awesome spread for me that includes non-alcoholic mocktails and a wide variety of snacks, appetizers and a lip smacking maincourse.
The hungry monkey has this cozy, dark ambiance with the DJ playing some awesome music and Val (Bartender) makes sure your drinks are catered to perfection.
They served me a trio platter with some peanuts, cucumber & carrot dipped in lemon juice and crisps to munch on while I wait for other dishes to arrive.
In no time, our table was full of delicious treats like mozzarella sticks, fried fish, french fries with thai sweet chilli sauce, mustard and marinara sauce.
I loved the fish so much that I was constantly gobbling it up. It was crisp, fresh and hot.
The mozzarella sticks were so heavenly, super gooey on the inside with endless cheese pull that added to the drool factor.
Absolutely smitten by this refreshing drink. It was composed of watermelon syrup, passion fruit, strawberry, coconut, pineapple juice, apple juice, lychee juice and creme. It was definition of a perfect tropical drink that helps you refresh as you gulp down every single sip.
Don’t chicken out!
I mean who expects such a pretty looking full fledged meal in a pub? Not me. I was completely surprised by this dish, when I poured the creamy mushroom sauce on top of this chicken. It all made sense.
This is my recommendation to you; that you definitely give this mocktail a go because it’s worth it. It comes in this beautiful bowl and is made up of 3 kinds of berries, 2 slices of lemon, sugar and soda.
The monkey punch is not your usual mocktail as its made up of cucumber, raspberry, lychee and basil syrup and lychee and apple juice. It imparts subtle hints of freshness as you sip away.
