Choose from an array of multi-cuisine dishes from Coimbatore's latest Sherlock Pub restaurant
Located in the bustling Brookfields mall is Sherlock’s Pub. A part of the pan-Indian chain, the Coimbatore franchise is owned by Shiva Kumar of Annamalai Hotels. While the popular English themed pub is right around the corner — we find that their restaurant section has been separated, making it apt for family dining. In a bid to explore their multi-cuisine menu we visited the 60-seater restaurant.Opened less than a month ago, it offers an array of dishes from South Indian, North Indian, Chinese, Mexican and Continental. Expect a wide range of quick bites like salads, sandwiches, wraps, burgers and a slew of sides like onion rings, cashew pakoda making this one a throwback to when pub food was synonymous with comfort food.
We were greeted with a litchi drink and kids special fishum dishum, comprising of juicy fish fingers and crunchy smilies served with eggless mayonnaise was an apt appetiser for what was coming. From the starters, we tried the signature veg and non-veg tandoor platters, featuring ajwain flavoured catfish, hot and spicy lamb kebab marinated with spicy tandoori rub, delicious hariyali jumbo prawns and juicy delicious chicken packed with flavour for the meat lovers. As for the vegetarian option, we try the cheese stuffed savoury mushrooms, spicy and soft paneer tandoori, tender and tangy pineapple and sauteed cauliflower served with tangy mint chutney and lemon. For those who love international flavours, the restaurant also offers three other platters like Chinatown (Chinese), South Indian, Mediterranean and Continental.
Pasta with a purpose
Moving on to the mains, a delightful plate of South Indian pasta graced our table. “The chef’s speciality is Indo-Italian fusion fare,” says manager Arun Kumar. The pasta has an aromatic mixture of South Indian condiments like coriander, basil and Bengal gram, garnished with a dash of roasted onions that created a riot of flavours on the palate.
Decked up desserts
To complete our meal we opted for the Sherlock Monster Shake that was plentiful with chocolate flavours and a must-have for chocolate lovers. The dark chocolate thick shake was topped with wafers, Oreo and Little Hearts biscuits, complete with a splash of rich chocolate sauce.
