Chennai's Newest Resto Bar Offers Everything Off The Record, From Thaiyar Sadham To Cocktails

Ten-Second Takeaway

There’s a new resto pub called Off The Record in Chennai’s party hub — Nugambakam. From quirky cocktails to curd rice and dhoklas with a makeover, the menu spells out fusion. And they offer several floors of fun as well.

Many Floors Of Fun

This quirky new resto bar welcomes you right from the entrance with its ultra trippy and pop interiors and a fancy bar to ogle at once you are in. Busy checking out the cool wall art, we opened the menu expecting just another continental one but little did we know we were in for a surprise. Because we spotted everything from thaiyar sadham to dhokla on the menu, but with quirky twists. The first floor of Off The Record comes with loads of black and red themed interiors, pop posters and paintings, and positions itself as a sophisticated resto bar to chill at, while their second floor is  more for party junkies.

 

 

Cheeky Cocktails & Posh Dhoklas

Off the Record, like most other bars, has a pretty elaborate drinks menu to choose from. Their cocktail specials starting at INR 400, are very tropical and we recommend you check out the Green Bastard loaded with gin, cucumber, egg white and lime, or the rum and brandy-based Melting Moments, and tequila-heavy — Joker among other quirky cocktails. Also have some Kahlua shots may be? We also liked sipping their Long Island Beach Iced Tea — very tangy and refreshing!

For starters, we tried out a bunch of dishes like the Bhel, Dhokla Dilemma {imagine dhoklas with jalapenos and chicken} and some Chilli Cheese Bhajis with Green Mayo. The menu also has some baos and fruity salads to dig into. Their 4th Dan Curd Rice  — Spicy Chicken/Urlai Mash start at just INR 200 and is the surprise package of this menu. That’s not it. Also worth checking out is their Blue Cheese Dumpling with Broccoli, called Bombed. And there’s a whole bunch of steaks and sea food delicacies like Fish Katsu, to choose from.

So, We're Saying...

There’s also a new section opening up next week, which we checked out. With pastel interiors and a black and white flooring, Gatho is the outdoor hub of Off The Record and is a great place to cool off during pleasant evenings. And of course, the place to be, if you’re looking for a rooftop resto bar to chill with the squad. This part of the place has a different menu. More like pizzas, grills and fries. Vegetarians, you’ll love their Dhania Mirch Potato while meat lovers, you could dig into their Tangri Kababs and Pork Chops.
