The ‘Gourmet’ and the ‘Gourmand’ are always eager to explore new places and this time the pursuit for gobbling led us to this shot bar ‘He Said She Said’ in Andheri West. It is mainly an offshoot of their main joint in Delhi. They launched their concept in Mumbai this year in January. A mammoth 13,500 square feet establishment which covers both the indoor and the outdoor seating.
It has a park like décor which gives a very casual feel to the ambiance. Lovely all-white tables and chairs lined with artificial grass complement this theme. To add to the lively quirky theme are thought-bubble shaped black boards at each table which allow you to doodle you own ‘he said’ ‘she said’ quotes. They haven’t forgotten the compulsive ‘Instagrammers’ and there’s a small photo booth to click away some buzzing memories.
They have Happy Hours from 12 Noon to 7 PM (Fri-Sun) on IMFL And Beers. But since this a shot bar we decided to try a round of shots. With 50 choice of shots you will be spoilt for choice and all these have fun names being exclusive to ‘He Said She Said’, we decided to have a mix of different shots. Orange County was a blend of vodka and orange juice. Melon water and Aam Panna are perfect for the summer indulgence. Paan Tini and Majama Che for the desi souls. Cha Maila a blend of caramel and whiskey for the Mumbaiyya in you.
Focused mainly on shots, the food is not the ultimate hero here. The menu ranges from tandoor to sliders to pizzas. We ordered French Fries with cheese and schezwan sauce. We also savored the Grilled Cajun Chicken which we heard was a popular dish here. Juicy chunks of chicken grilled to perfection and just the right sprinkle of spices made it both healthy and tasty. Classic Chilly Chicken was just about average with nothing spectacular to boast about. Wok tossed lemon grass prawns were nice and crunchy with a tangy sauce and hint of lemon grass. Vegetarians! Do not even think of leaving this place without hogging on the Spicy Jalapeno Poppers. Soft and cheesy, these sidekicks will surely tickle those pleasure centers of your brain. Lightly fried on the outside and tender on the inside! A MUST GOBBLE!
This place is bubbling on weekdays too. They do a Madstyle Bachata Nights. Thursdays they have Bar Olympics with Beer Pong, Beer Chugging, Shots & Ladders and other drinking games. They also plan to bring out a updated Food Menu soon & are also planning for a fine dining option on the first floor and terrace. The Gourmet and Gourmand cant wait for this!
Gourmet’s final verdict – I love the fact that it is a bar not does not have the stereotypical look of one. The innovative concept of shots and the riot of colors is such a respite. Paan Tini and Cha maila shot are my personal favorites; unique and desi. I just wish they come with a combo of cocktails with a combined discounted pricing like they have in the Delhi branch. This makes it easy for people in groups.
Gourmand’s final verdict – This shot-bar will not disappoint you for sure. Tasty munchies, happy hours and really quirky shots will make this a favorite. The environment is pretty jovial and the park like feel kind of rejuvenates you. Mumbai has a winner for sure. I am looking forward to new menu additions and more fingers foods on their menu.
