On a Friday afternoon, when we got a half-day at office, we decided to start our weekend a bit earlier than planned. We had initially gone to Cheenos but as their AC wasn't working, we had to leave and search for a new location to party. Having tried Baby Dragon before, during our training period, a few of us suggested that we go there.
Baby Dragon is located quite close to the Sector 18 Metro, as we found out that day. The place generally has two floors open, one for the bar people and the other for the family crowd but as it was an afternoon, the first floor restaurant was the only thing that catered to both the groups. We seated ourselves close to the TV so we could watch the match between Faisalabad Wolves and Kandurata Maroons.
We first ordered a couple of Tuborgs and decided to order a Hookah too. The existing flavours like Paan Rasna and Double Apple have become pretty boring, so I was delighted when I saw a new flavour on the menu. It was called Sex On The Beach and the waiter informed us that it is fashioned to let out fumes smelling of the famous cocktail. By the time, the hookah was ready we had ordered the starters - Chicken Kunchaw Dry and Drums Of Heaven. As one of my friends is a huge mutton fan, we also ordered the Crispy Lamb Chilly Sesame and Roast Lamb in Barbeque sauce.
The food here takes especially long to come, so we had to munch on their specially tasty Kimchi Salad with the beer while watching Misbah Ul Haq slaughter the SriLankan bowling attack. Finally, the hookah arrived after about 15 minutes. The flavour wasn't exactly new as it was basically Paan with extra mint. However, it was pretty refreshing and that is what we needed after a hectic week at office.
The food came after we had finished the first beer. The Kunchaw Chicken is herb marinated chicken served with spring onions and fried basil leaves. We had eaten this even in our previous visit and loved it so much that we had to order it again. The Drumsticks would do better with some more spice as they were quite bland and needed constant dippings to bring out the taste. The Mutton dishes were great too, the roasted lamb in barbeque sauce deserves a special mention. The marination had seeped into the pieces pretty well which made it crispy on the outside and juicy inside. The Crispy Lamb Chilly Sesame was fried lamb with sesame seeds as a coating on the outside. It was a bit chewy but otherwise the taste was pretty good.
By the time we were done, Kandurata Maroons had lost the match and Misbah was declared the Man Of The Match.
