One for the road
Jugheadz is the place if you wish to grab a late night bite.
AN INFORMAL bistro, Jugheadz is just what the doctor ordered if you need to grab a bite before some heavy-duty weekend partying. By day Jugheadz is a Conti take away and parcel point while by night it takes on a whole new look. "We have a lot of people coming over by 11 p.m., especially on weekends," says Kamal of Jugheadz. On a cold winter night it is not unusual to finds groups of twenty somethings biting into their sumptuous rolls or club sandwiches.Nothing could match the sheer ecstasy of munching French toasts topped with apple syrup and sipping a steaming cup of coffee. Those who dig eggs can indulge in a host of tasty options including omelettes stuffed with cheese or mushroom.
Barun Paul, the chef at Jugheadz (he has earlier worked with The Manohar) recommends Veg Pizza capsicum and onion drenched with mozzarella cheese and pizza sauce, Fried chicken marinated chicken breast and legs grilled and served with boiled vegetables, barbeque sauce and French fries and the Jugheadz Special Non-vegetarian sandwich with sliced vegetables, cheese, fried eggs, butter and toast, in that order.
The other options that you may want to try here are the burgers in jumbo and mini options, grilled fish, lamb chops, cutlets (vegetarian and non vegetarian) and rolls vegetable, mince mutton and mince chicken options and pancakes.
The service is quick; they take about five minutes to fix a vegetable chutney sandwich and about ten minutes to grill your fish just right. The rates are easy on the pocket. For example you can get a 6" Corn pizza for Rs. 35 or a filling Mince Chicken Roll for Rs. 25. Calorie wise, there is a generous use of cheese, butter and sauces and well, the complementary potato chips. But then the outlet swears by the maxim `live to eat'.
Jugheadz is on 6-33 200/B/5, Road No. 1, diagonally opposite FoodWorld, Banjara Hills, Tel: 55826004/5. Plans are on to open a few more branches in the twin cities with more branches coming up at City Centre, Abids and at S.D. Road. Also on the cards is the introduction of popular Chinese items. So the next time you have to grab a bite with friends before you go to the discotheque, you know where to go.
