Get Set Grill Drill N Drool - Absolute Barbecue

There are somethings in the world, you wait for a long time to get your hands on. But when you do it, you feel "Oh! worth waiting for". Absolute Barbecue was one such thing for me. Had dinner here yesterday. Birthday dinner. Only that it was a week after the birthday :P

A lot of positive reviews were floating around this place. The only thing that set me back was the reservation. People said that, you got to reserve a week before and if you do walk in you got to wait for 45mins to an hour or so to get the table. I was like What?? Seriously?? Thought that let the excitement on the new place die, I'll step in later. When I called up in the morning for reservation for dinner, they said they are full and suggested for a walk in at 6.30pm. We went there by 7.15pm and were told that the waiting time would be around 45 mins. I thought of walking back but hubby said lets wait for sometime n see. Surprisingly we got the table within 15-20 mins.

Cool and loud (really loud) ambiance with pleasant interiors. The place is like it can accommodate a marriage party. Very noisy, but who cares when the food is too good :) Three best thing about this place. First is the service. I literally felt like being pampered :) I mean it. The stewards are very friendly, polite and make sure that we are comfortable. I'm yet to be comfortable with sea food. When i refused the fish starter, the steward said "Kha kar dhekiya madam. Acha lagega. Smell nagi aayega" kinda stuff. Vitta aaaa kaaminu ooti viduvar pola :P

They first explain the concept, what they have in the menu for the day, about wish grill and all. Then the storm starts. 6 veg and non-veg starters. They keep bringing it in. I chose the non-veg course (obvio) and hubby went for the veg one. I had chicken leg piece, mutton sheek kebab, chicken wings served on the plate. On the grill I had chicken tikka, prawns and bassa fish. Fish was not my type. The prawns were juicy and was heavenly with the mango sauce. The sheek kebab was spicy and juicy. Almost all the meat served were tender, well marinated and perfectly cooked.





For veg grill it was mushrooms, paneer and corn. Didnt taste any. They also served cheesy potatoes, crispy corn and coconut kebab on the plate. Had cheesy potatoes and coconut kebab. Both were yummylicious. We also had grilled pineapple and watermelon. The pineapple was simply mindblowing.




The starters part is not over yet. Here comes the unique concept called WishGrill. The basic concept here is, you choose among exotic range of meat/veggie, the sauces, pick between rice or noodles and convey it to the chef there. They’ll mix these up, grill them and give you a delicious, heavenly dish. By exotic meat I mean, u get to choose from rabbit, quail, octopus, shark, roasted chicken and mutton. I went for the rabbit. I told the chef that this was the first time I'm having rabbit and I let him choose the other things that'll go well with the rabbit. And buoy the outcome was simply delicious. Spicy grilled rabbit with indian sauces/spices, egg and onions. I gorged it up. Hubby like his choice of veggie grill with noodles.







After this I was stuffed till nose and was in the verge of bursting :) So skipped the main course and marched straight into the dessert counterv(I did look into the spread and it seems to be good. With 3-4 gravies in veg and non-veg, salads, soups, breads, biriyani, the spread was large). After the service and wish grill the third next part of the meal was the paan shoot ice-cream. Made at the cold stone table in the live counter, this one was the best. I'm not a big ice-cream fan. But this time I went twice for this ice-cream/ Apart from the ice-cream the phirni, mango cheesecake, summer pudding and moong dal halwa were equally good. They also had some cakes which I didnt have.






A veg, non-veg and a kiddie meal costed us 1600 inclusive of everything. I usually don't prefer tipping when there is a service charge in the bill. But this time I insisted giving them tips. But the stewards politely refused to have it. So did the valet parking assistants.

Hoping to visiting them soon again. I wish they maintain the standards the same forever :)

  2. While serious barbecue enthusiasts may never be happy with the idea of cooking with gas, many Labor Day revellers would be lost without a good old gas grill in the backyard. But no matter what kind of equipment is used, the backyard barbecue is an integral part of the uniquely American Labor Day holiday.Char-Griller Tabletop Grill review
