The new tapas style menu features an array of innovative and diverse small plates, catering to all palates. Each dish on this curated menu showcases varied culinary techniques and flavour pairings.
Here are some of the dishes to look forward to:
Beer Soy Glazed Barbeque Ribs: Slow cooked smoked ribs glazed with an in-house sauce made of beer, pineapple and soy, topped with a togarashi seasoning. Lip smacking-ly delicious!
Fries Brie with Fig Chutney: A crispy Brie with truffle cauliflower puree and a fig chutney; this humble cheese course pairs perfectly with the variety of beers on offer.
Tuna Tataki: Influenced by the ingredients and techniques of two cuisines, this dish uses Vietnamese Nuoc Cham, and Japanese Tataki searing. Served with pickled grapes, jalapeno, and red pepper relish, in this dish, the ingredients speak for themselves.
Ayam Taliwang: Chicken skewers coated with a fermented chili and coconut milk-based sauce, finished on a tandoor main course. Taken inspiration from the Indonesian Ayam Taliwang dish but converted into a small plate, this dish elevates the concept of BBQ chicken with unique sweet and sour flavours.
Salmon & Coconut: Salmon torched with a sweet pickle puree on top, and a citrus coconut curd on the side. This dish is inspired by ceviche, but a semi cooked version.
Ghee Roast Bone Marrow: A soulful dish, where the roasted bone marrow is paired with an authentic ghee roast sauce and served with a coriander chutney and in house sourdough bread.
Traditionally associated with Spanish cuisine, tapas consist of small, flavorful dishes served as appetizers or snacks. Recently, India has seen a rise and evolution of the concept, where it has been adapted to local tastes and traditions. This has allowed for creativity and experimentation in Indian culinary world. This style of dining promotes social dining and encourages sharing, conversation, through a relaxed dining experience, resonating with the Indian way of enjoying meals. With that in mind, Geist Brewing Co. Rajajinagar has taken inspiration from tapas style of dining, to offer a menu that is globally inspired, but
rooted in Indian flavours and soul. The shared plates concept is a fusion of flavors, set against an elevated and modern ambiance.
