And it’s a WRAP with Barcelos Sector 29 Gurgaon

So here comes my most awaited restaurant review of as of late–the iconic Barcelos which opened is arms in the heart of gurgaon sector 29 market. Plush location, sprawling spaces–both open areas and inside seating, live kitchen and sangaria’s to kill for is how I see this new favourite place of mine.

So this being the third barcelos outlet in Delhi-NCR is perhaps the largest property of their chain in India. The place has three seating levels–the open area (which is going to be full come winters, take it from me), the ground floor seating overlooking the open seating area as well as the slightly larger basement seating with lounge-like aura. The basement also has delhi’s first Sangria bar and their iconic yellow-car table which is basically a disjointed car with seating and a table in its centre. yes, I was lucky enough to dine on this very car! 🙂

Barcelos, without saying, had revolutionised the burger market in our country! The chain serving some deliciously authentic portugese and african food; when launched their coloured burgers–took the Indian culinary experience by storm. Be it the red or the black burger–the very aspect of having colourful food excited everyone. And to satiate the forever growing hunger of “something new”, Barcelos has now launched an exciting array of mini wrap-a-rolls in four new shades– PINK, GREEN, YELLOW and WHITE. Did I hear shouts of ecstasy here? Because the first time I heard of them, I did showcase my excitement with a loud shrill of yay!


So these wraps come in a total of 8 variants–4 non veg and 4 veg which are filled to the brim with lamb shavings, chicken cubes, minced mutton, veggies, cottage cheese and mayo-cheese toppings. I tried the yellow and the pink non veg wrap and both had a scrumptious minced mutton filling and I could not stop at just one. The green veg wrap was also pure love with ample cottage cheese and melted cheese to enhance the flavours.

Apart from the delish wraps and burgers, we tried their mezze platter which was absolutely gorgeous. all four dippings along with the beautiful pita bread went perfectly well as an appetiser for a non-mezze-lover like me. Then came along the peri-peri nuts which i found was a fun bowl of assorted nuts stirred in some tangy peri peri sauce to go well as “firangi-chakna” for your drinks. And yes, if the non vegetarian in yo is craving a good dose of meat, order their peri peri chicken drumsticks before you order the main course.

Their sangria bar has some really epic concoctions to offer–from their red and white wine sangria to their Ola (rum and rose based cocktail) and the Ponchu Jura ( an unconventional vodka and ginger base drink) to their kiwi, mango coolers along with their delicacy frozen strawberry margharita–the bar steals the show.
Coming to the main course, we ordered their peri peri chicken portion and half of the chicken was enough for 3 of us. The chicken is perfectly cooked and has just the right amount of marinade to it. and above all, its their signature dish–who am i to comment? Just a quick tip, till the time you are flame-spicy crazy, stay away from the extremely peri peri chicken; opt for the mild sauce instead! You are welcome!

So lastly a thing about their deserts–they do not make them from the catch, rather they outsource them, so they are served on regualation., But if you are lucky enough to try their decadent cheesecake, guys its a humble request, please do! And yes, once you do you will ofcourse come back to thank me later!

So all in all, this place is and will be a hit in the coming winters when all we care for is a nice sunny day with a glass of red wine and a hearty meal!
Ishy 🙂
