How many times have you gone to a place, placed an order for a few drinks or pints of beer and have seen the bill skyrocket? Too often right? With extra taxes and liquor being expensive in itself, it's often not an economical choice to have more than a drink or so when you're at a fancy place. Enter BYOB places- which allow you to bring in your own booze, cutting costs on the drinks and giving you space to order more food.
The latest such place that's grown on us is Terminal 1 in Gurugram. The place has a charm of it's own and with the freedom of having your own drinks, the fun never stops!
A rustic place, with a sea based theme, Terminal 1 has a few tricks up its sleeve that will make it your favourite. The open air seating and a large area to chill around at make this one of the better places to chill with a large group of friends. The fact that you can BYOB just adds to the taste everything here.
Apart from that, the sea theme is rather quirky and there's even a ship deck like seating atop the roof of the place. A few life jackets and floaters add to the essence of the place and it's growing on us.
Now that you have one less thing to worry about- the drinks, because you can bring your own, you can explore the menu to the fullest. Here, they specialize in continental, North Indian and Chinese. In fact, they even blent bits and pieces of seafood, which adds to the multitude of flavours that you can get here.
We would recommend that you try the Mutton Barra, which are grilled, spicy and blend well with a pint of beer. Apart from that, the non veg platter is a good bet because you get bits of everything. The dishes here have a distinct taste which is succulent and tangy, all at the same time.
As for the main course, we'd go for the flame grilled prawns, grilled fish with lemon sauce and a good ol' classic white sauce pasta.
Needless to say, each of the dishes exceeded our expectations and since we were saving up on all the drinks that we'd got, the experience was something different.
A unique, one of a kind place, with the added benefit of BYOB, the Terminal 1 is the answer to all the times when we've wanted to go out for a quick drink session with friends after a hectic work day.
