3 Pegs Down. Quite a quirky name and so is the place, rather eccentric. Located in the Southern Park Mall, Saket, this place is definitely off to a good start. Spread across a large area, it’s not your regular lounge but a peg above the others. The interiors are polished and live up to the theme. It’s an all-Mexican lounge. As you enter you will notice the staff wearing cowboy uniforms, a big bull in a corner, a big cowboy shoe and hat in another corner and a wall showcasing some other cowboy takeaways.
The sheer size of lounge is one of it’s key achievements, on top of that the lovely ambiance and of course the very chic menu. The cocktails menu is a star, with Mexican flavours coming out boldly. The food menu, confirming with the concept, offers Mexican cuisine but is still multi-cuisine, so there’s a lot in store. It also offers hookah and probably the best one in Delhi. The staff is highly motivated and I admire the fact that the manager was making sure that all servers were doing their job right.
The food and cocktails were delicious. I tried the following:
Cosmopolitan: One of my favourite cocktails, this one was perfectly blended giving the bitter taste of vodka balanced with the sourness of cranberry juice along with the sweetness of a sugar syrup.
Vanilla Cobbler Martini: One of their signature cocktails, a mixture of rum, peach, pineapple and lemon, this one is surely worth a try.
Soya Tikka: Huge chunks of Soya, grilled well and hence perfectly cooked served with a pudina chutney.
Vegetarian Pizza: Topped with broccoli, one of my favourite ingredients, mushroom, baby corn and onions, this pizza had a very refreshing taste.
Dal Makhani: It’s rarely possible to make dal makhani creamy and spicy and this one was bang on. Definitely recommended.
Homemade Ginger Ale: The perfect ginger ale that’s got me addicted.
So if you’re planning a party, you might want to consider checking this place out. Or even for a night out with your friends.
