I’ve spoken about the Barking Deer Brewpub before. I love heading there whenever I’m at Lower Parel – great ambience & even better food.
Not all of us are good at pairing alcohol with food (I know I’m not) they have come up with this great combo called Couple of the Week where you get a dish & a beer to go with it at just ₹749.
This week’s couple is Estrella 1906 Beer with a (vegetarian) Farmer’s Pie.

Farmer’s Pie is similar to Shepherd’s Pie, but instead of minced meat there are an assortment of veggies & fresh herbs, topped with a thin layer of puff pastry & the dreamiest mashed potato I’ve ever eaten (thanks to Chef Parag taking the time to explain how it’s made I think I’m going to attempt making it at home, though I already know it won’t be this good!)
The pie was so wholesome & comforting & the beer balanced it out spectacularly. So I’m seriously considering visiting again this week while it’s still available (perhaps tomorrow after some shopping at Vogue’s Fashion Night Out!)
This couple of the week is available till Sunday & they’ll be back Monday with a brand new pairing (this time meat) & beer.
