Glocal Junction – as the name suggests, is a unique one-stop place combining global and local cuisines under one roof. Located on the first floor of Signature Tower, right in the middle of the bustling junction of Kondapur, Hyderabad, the resto-bar & grill has recently revamped its interiors and menu. The all-buffet resto-pub is known for its signature cocktails such as Toxic Box, a perfect amalgamation of litchi, galangal, lemongrass and vodka which is a fitting accompaniment to the food menu. Another lovely fusion cocktail is the Basil and Watermelon Smash- a red-coloured cocktail made with fresh watermelon and basil juice paired with the perfect amount of vodka that can wipe out one’s tiredness in a sip.
The unmatched cocktails are to be paired with Glocal Junction’s newly introduced menu offering various veg and non-veg options. Among the starters, Crispy Chicken Wings – juicy & tender chicken strips deep fried to perfection served with an in-house dip tantalises one’s gustatory system. Other starters such as Amritsari Fish Tikka, Chicken Kebab, Crispy Corn, Cheese Balls, Thin-crust Pizza and Chilli Garlic Prawns also deserve special mention.
For teetotallers, several signature mocktails are on offer such as the Berry Bull, made with mixed berry juice and red bull, and lemongrass & lemon juice infused Tangerine Lemongrass Cooler which are perfect drinks to enjoy the evenings.
The live chat counter offers lip-smacking golgappa along with various chats. The resto-pub offers healthy salads on the counter such as healthy Boiled Egg Salad, Chicken Salad and many more.
After the lip-smacking starters, one should go for the buffet spread. The soup section has veg and non-veg options. In veg, the menu offers Tomato Soup while in non-veg options Hyderabad’s favourite Mutton Marag is served piping hot for guests to start the meal.
In the main course Chicken Biryani, Veg Pulao, Veg Noodles, Kadhai Chicken, Dal Makhani, Mutton Roganjosh, and Palak Paneer showcase the expertise of Glocal Junction’s chefs.
Among the wide spread of desserts, hot Gulab Jamuns along with other desserts such as Phirni, and Brownies provide a sweet ending to a filling meal.
The buffet starts from INR 722 (excluding taxes) and includes one glass of beer or one mocktail in the package.
