If you remember the post on Monday “Chronicles of the Weekend” it briefly spoke about Smoke House Deli, Today we at Badbikegang are writing about our experiences at this eatery as it happens to be our current favorite -We have already visited this place about 6 times in 3 weeks with friends & family 🙂
SHD is located at Phoneix Mills. As soon as we entered the place our immediate attention went to the decor as the restaurant is completely white with sketching on the walls, also once you go beyond the reservation desk on your left there is this amazing display gallery unit storing Wines, Beers, Coldcuts, Fish, Packaged foods and sensational desserts!!!
To your right is an open kitchen where chefs are hard at work. chopping veggies, plating food etc. Seating is across tables with chairs and if you pick the tables against the wall there are sofas as well. We picked the one with the sofa, post sitting comfortably we were greeted by a polite waiter who asked us regular water or mineral. (Who in their sane mind goes for mineral water! The cost is out of whack) we went for regular. Basis the request we were given water in glasses where in I saw some dirt floating in the glass, Immediately the waiter was called and asked WTF at which point the waiter told us that the water was gently flavored with fresh orange & mint and thus particles of the same were floating in the glass. Ok the embarrassing moment for the day had happened! We looked at each other and laughed hysterically.
Menu was then given which more or less comprised of Soups, Egg Preps, Pancakes, Bacon, Sausages etc on the breakfast page, main course page consisted of Steak, Lamb, Chicken, Potato preparations. Forgot to add there was also a drinks menu given though post evaluating prices we ordered a couple of Budweisers which were the cheapest. All in all the variety of wines, cocktails & beers is insane but steep.
Some Vanilla Pancakes, Peri Peri Chicken, Steak, Chilli Dog, Chicken Burger, Bacon & more was the order, the staff was well trained and assisted in helping us with the order & recommendations. The order was served in about 10 minutes while we sipped on the pint & some mocktails which were ordered.
The food as you can see in the pictures was well plated and more importanlty spectacular, each dish seemed to be put together well with balanced and flavorful tastes. Special mention here to the Bacon which was unbelievable. Bikes, Bikers, Babes, Bacon & Bucks rule!!! You know the food is good when there is pin drop silence on the table and all you hear is cutlery, the silence is broken only when you hear things like “you have to try this it’s brilliant, oh this ones even better” etc
Finally some plum flavored philedelphia cheese cake was ordered the same was unbelievable!!! It melted as soon as it touched the tongue. Finally paid the bill & left with the promise of returning. If you are in the vicinity this place is a must visit.
