Genuine Broaster Chicken Mumbai | #GetBroasted | Food Review | Restaurant Review

Why would a vegetarian even enter a place featuring the word 'Chicken' predominantly in the name? Maybe when they get an invite to review the food, like our bloggers group did! Even though we are all vegetarians, we all had some work in Andheri so we decided to drop in, thinking that maybe we would get some fries and 1 or 2 burger options to taste, then we would have to go home for dinner anyway.
Oh, how wrong we were :D
Genuine Broaster Chicken Review

Genuine Broaster Chicken derives its name from a special cooking technique (Broasting) for chicken and this is where my technical knowledge ends. All I know is it is already a huge name worldwide. From my understanding, it is in direct competition with places like KFC, McD, Burger King and the likes. But I would prefer GBC over all of them, YES, despite being vegetarian, purely because it truly has an American soul with Indian heart.

The ambiance, service and food aims to bring the best of America + India and largely succeeds on all fronts. Quirky chicken comic joke strips, American paraphernalia, funky seating options, a complete Texan saloon vibe all around. I should know, I am hooked to Supernatural series which has a slideshow of such places. This one is monster-less though and brightened with clasic pop hits by Michael Jackson, Backstreet Boys and the like :D
American Bar Saloon Ambiance
Service is polite,efficient and not intrusive though they are always ready to suggest their best dishes. AND they take feedback from every customer. Niiiice :) Oh, we were in for a surprise when we saw Chef Harpal Singh Sokhi buried deep in a discussion in a corner, a pleasant coincidence. Let me tell you right now, close your eyes and order anything with 'Chef's Special' written in the menu, it is gonna be fantastic!

Genuine Broaster Chicken American Tradition History Review
The menu has ample options for vegetarians which made us happy. It is not exactly value for money but looking at the location and quality of food, understandable. The questions was, will it be worth it? Answers came in affirmative with each dish we tasted :)

Chulbul Soda Mumbai
Starting with drinks, my personal favorites are Cold Coffee, Raspberry Milkshake and ChulBul Soda (tastes just like Masala Soda). All other options in beverages are good too, some of them might be too milky or watery for some palates, that is subjective.
BBQ Nachos Fries Genuine Broaster Chicken
Star in starters would be Smoked BBQ Franchos i.e. crispy fries deliciously mixed with BBQ glaze, onions, jalapenos. This dish can make people hop across borders just to have it (mind you,not that I am condoning it :P)
Gourmet Vegetarian Starter

Vegetarian Gourmet Starter Genuine Broaster Chicken
Thai Paneer Cigars were delicate rolls with minced spicy Paneer while Veggie BBQ Pit-zaa i.e. flavorful veggies on crunchy pita bread were like mini pizza slices, just a bit crunchier than what most people would prefer.
Even more than the starters, Burger, Pasta and Indie selections stole my heart :) Chef Harpal Singh Sokhi's Punjabi touch and innovation in planning the menu even for vegetarians comes to fore here.
Vegetarian Gourmet Burger India Genuine Broaster Chicken
Best Spicy Pasta Mumbai India
Go for Palak Paneer Burger, intense flavors of Palak, Cheese, Veggies served alongside crispiest fries amalgamate into a cheery option for any veggie foodie. Penne Makhani is what one would get if Punjabi Grandmas started making pasta alongside Chole Bhature :D Delicious Makhani gravy oozing out of every pasta tube! Splendid.
North Indian Punjabi Delicious Indian Cuisine
Paneer Maskedar (sort of Paneer Butter Masala, mildly spicy), Maa Ki Daal (hearty Black Daal made the Punjabi way) with Lachcha Paratha is one must-have combination for those wanting something spicy or a full-fledged meal (without counting calories of course!)
Vegetarian Gourmet Masterchef Indian Dessert
Gulkand Muffin is Chef's gift to humankind. Moist Mawa Cake with Gulkand bang in the middle, the aroma enveloping us all before we even cut the first piece, this is a dessert even for those who are naturally not attracted to sweet dishes.
Vegetarian Gourmet Dessert India Mango Ice Cream Chocolate
Finally, Chocolate Samosa (those lovely peanuts inside!Yum!) served with Mango Ice-cream (this feels like a frozen slice of Alphonso itself!) almost led to a war a we all wanted to polish off the plate till the last drop of chocolate sauce :P (I won :D)
Genuine Broaster Chicken Review
It is nice when expectations are fulfilled, it is even better when a situation of no expectations is surpassed :) Innovative & Delicious food, keeping in mind Indian palate, serving American fare with little twists, now this is going to bring us back. And for that alone, here is a hearty thumbs up to Genuine Broaster Chicken, even by a group of hardcore vegetarians.
