Delectable food, cocktails and mocktails to die for, this spot is definitely worth a visit
At the very doors of Thamel is VIP Lounge and Bar which commenced its hospitality and food services more than a year ago. Located in the bustling setting of the valley makes it very convenient for swathes of customers frequenting the place mostly during weekends.
The seating is spacious and provides an airy, comfortable feel. Evenings are special, with the magnificent view and hanging fairy lights. Be it a family dinner, a get-together with your friends or a birthday celebration, the atmosphere here is perfect for almost everything.
On your visit to VIP Lounge and Bar, the staff will greet you warmly and offer the best of their delicacies, which without doubt is more than satisfying. Abuzz with live performances and the most colourful drinks, many-a-night are spent here in celebrations.
And what is a celebration without great food? For starters, their Classic Chicken Caesar Salad is a classic but with a twist. Grilled chicken breast with mixed greens tossed with caesar dressing, croutons and cut pieces of boiled eggs were then sprinkled with parmesan to make this fine salad, a taste bud opener for more to come.
A favourite, meat lovers would definitely devour the Buffalo wings in no time here. With just the right amount of spice and sweetness to kick start celebrations. The dish was perfectly marinated in spicy chilli sauce making the exterior a bit crispy but soft and exquisitely flavoured on the inside.
Another delight you cannot miss is the Classic Bruschetta. One of the best things about summer’s juicy, ripe tomatoes from the market, is that you can enjoy the classic dish with tomatoes, basil and garlic like no other time of the year. And the restaurant just happens to serve your favourite traditional Italian appetiser on toast. All ready to serve your taste buds with its piquant yet familiar taste, the bruschetta here is easy to whip up in a flash.
An enticing dish, the Shrimp Cocktail looks tempting and fascinating at the same time. A taste of Mediterranean, fried baby prawns/shrimps is served with cocktail sauce. The sauce was something new, giving the whole dish a unique taste.
Others specials like the Butter Chicken with Garlic Naan and Spaghetti Neapolitan with quintessential flavours are sure to satiate your appetite.
Moving on to the well-stocked bar, cocktails such as the Cobra House, a blend of blue curacao syrup with drops of triple sec; Strawberry Magic and Blue Lagoon featuring blue curacao again, typically garnished with a lemon slice can be a great start to your night. All of these popular summer drinks were equally delicious and refreshing concoctions.
Finally, a dessert to match your gastronomical experience, don’t forget the Chocolate Brownie. The attention to detail, the ingredients, the freshness, the presentation - it all shines through. Situated in Thamel, VIP Lounge and Bar is an easy stop for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
