Beer, French Crepes Or Punjabi Khana: Where To Eat Around Forum Mall

Roshni posted on 24 October

Planning a day of shopping at Forum Mall? Well, while you’re at it, why not make a day of it and pack in a nice meal as well? And no, we don’t mean the ever-bustling food court. Scattered around the mall are quite a few restaurants and pubs where you can head to when the hunger pangs hit you after all that splurging. Whether you’re craving good old Punjabi food, pub grub or just some beer to guzzle on, there’s plenty here to sort you out. All within walking distance, too!

Truffles

A popular hangout spot among many in the hood, their menu has everything from sandwiches and heavy mains to milkshakes and desserts. We swear by the Lamb Cheese Burst Burger and the sinful Chicken Cordon Bleu {chicken rolled around salami and cheese, and crumb fried}. If the Ferrero Rocher cold coffee proves to be too heavy for you, there’s Irish Coffee or even cakes and tarts to sell the deal. Read more about it here.

Known to recreate traditional favourites in a richer and modern avatar, the restaurant has classic dishes like Sarson Da Saag and Raan E Sikandari along with specials {think Salmon Tikka and Tandoori Duck}. While you’re at it, add on one of their house specialty cocktails like Khooni Chameli {an Indian version of Bloody Mary} or Mirch Mumtaz {vodka with orange juice, green chilly and black salt}.

Dice N Dine

With a collection of over 400 games, Dice N Dine lets you unwind with good old board games while you tuck in to their starter platters or light eats like nachos and Chicken Popcorn. Apart from all-time favourites like Scrabble and Pictionary, they also have European games like The Settlers of Catlan and Ticket to Ride. Want something more filling while you concentrate on that game? Go for their sizzlers or Italian dishes {Chicken Risotto or Lasagna}.

Pick the rooftop seating with its shack-like decor and sit back for an evening of upbeat vibes and great food. Their Lamb & Sundried Tomato Pizza or the Fenny’s Chicken Sizzler are what you can try here, paired with your choice of cocktails.

Whooppeez

Super-cheesy pizzas with a thick, downy base is what you can sink your teeth into at Whooppeezz. Their Mama’s Chicken Pizza is our pick, with its topping of roasted chicken chunks, sauteed mushrooms, onions and basil leaves. Want pizzas with a twist? Try their Eggizza {an egg pizza with slices of boiled egg} or the Whooppeezzoo, a double base pizza with two layers of cheese and a whole lot of toppings! Pastas, light eats, desserts and drinks also feature in the menu along with value-for-money combos. Read more about it here.

Just a short walk away from Forum Mall, this one’s a neighbourhood favourite for its upbeat vibes, retro music and pocket-friendly menu. Order yourself a pitcher of beer and pair it up with their fiery Guntur Chicken Tikka or the Chilli Soya Pork Spare Ribs. Oh, and happy hours to look out for on weekdays!

Harry's Bar+Cafe

Recently reopened in a bigger and better avatar, Harry’s has interesting cocktails and delicious bar food to sample while you soak in the cheery ambience and music. Pick their Blood on the Rooftop drink which comes with a good dose of red wine along with four spirits, promising you quite the boozy start you need. Dig into the Smoking Hot Sausages and the Pattaya Beach Fish Fingers here before turning to their juicy Peppered Tenderloin Steak with mashed potato.

Purple Haze

Dimly lit with its rock n’ roll vibe and Jimi Hendrix posters all around, Purple Haze is among the favourite haunts for rock enthusiasts in the hood. Whether it’s for their drink deals {1+1 and 2+1 offers on different brands} or for the great music they play {think classic and contemporary rock}, this is where you can spend hours, catching up with friends or just chilling on a lazy evening. Make sure to add on a plate {or two} of their Chilli Chicken and Golden Fried Prawns to go with your drinks.
