One word that describes the ambience at Broaster? Chill. The entrance makes you feel that you are about to enter someplace very classy and the interior pretty much lives up to your expectations.
From jute sacks hanging from the ceiling dimming the lights above them to baseball helmets acting as bulb covers, this place has a vibe of its own. I wanted to take one off and put it on my head!
We got to our table and ordered a ‘Palang Tod‘ which is a combination of Red Bull and espresso and trust me when I say this, it was one of the highest on caffeine drinks I have ever had! We also tried a couple of more drinks but none came close to the ‘Palang tod‘.
Next up was the food. This place might be called Genuine Broaster Chicken but the veg food here is no less tasty. But that is for you to go and find out. We are here to talk about chicken.
With six varieties of chicken wings, there’s something for everyone. There are chicken wings for the ones who can’t handle spicy food as well as for the ones who crave for the burning sensation on their tongues. Half full by the end of the assorted platter of these chicken wings, we ordered some appetisers. One may say that the urge to eat usually reduces as the stomach gets full. But, there are always exceptions. Especially when your taste buds are being tested every time you turn a page on the menu. I highly recommend the ‘Fishy squares’ and ‘Firangi palak chicken dip’.
Do not forget to try out the freakshakes and the burgers! You’ll find some pretty colourful burgers here. By colourful, I mean colourful in the literal sense. They are appealing not only to the eye but also to the tongue. And they taste as good as they look! Also, you might end up asking for extra dips.
At first, we saw a college group enjoying themselves. Then a middle-aged couple entered. And there was also a couple who seemed to be enjoying their date. This place will surely appeal to all age groups.
While we were about to leave, we had a chance to talk to a gentleman and he said, “We come here at least once a month and are pretty satisfied with the entire experience every time. The food is good and decently priced, the ambience is amazing and it overall is a good place.”
All in all, Genuine Broaster Chicken should be on your list of places be if you are planning on going out with your loved ones.
