Gurgaon is now also known as the new brewery hub of Delhi NCR. The sector 29 market, for this matter can be the king.
In a 2 km radius there are more than 20 breweries, new as well as old.
We went hunting for a new addition to the brewery family and came across a cozy place, tucked away near the outer parking lot of the market.
Hunter Valley is located at the opposite end of the lemon tree hotel. They have a beautiful outside seating area where one can enjoy the weather with a chilled glass of in-house beer.
The interiors are also well done. The right hand side of the restaurant is done in lighter shades with window curtains and pretty decor. It is the ideal set up to enjoy a date. The left hand side on the other hand has a funky decor. Comfortable couches with cushion covers in the form of buttoned shirts. There is a beautiful scenic wall painting on one wall and the other wall is covered with graffiti on a glass surface.
One one end of the restaurant a whole area is dedicated to the bar section, where you can sip and enjoy your drink.
We were started off with a mini sampler of all their varieties of brewed beer. They have all varieties for mild to strong and wheat beer as well.
For mocktails, I tried their ice- tea which was made in house from scratch.
For starters we had the chicken quesadillas. Soft tortilla breads toasted a little ans then filled with succulent pieces of chicken. This one was a must have.
Then we had hard shell tacos and chili potatoes. Both of them were also well prepared. The chili potatoes especially were very well made and it was impossible to take just one bite.
For our mains we started off with the chicken Bolognese. This was a red sauce preparation in spaghetti with spiced minced meat topped with Parmesan cheese. This one is highly recommended!
Then we followed this with schezwan chicken and hakka noodles. This was highly disappointing, both the dishes were extremely salty.
For desserts we had the chocolate brownie with ice cream and dhansak with ice cream. The brownie was a little too hard and dry for my liking, but the dhansak on the other hand was great!

All in all, Hunter Valley is a picturesque place to enjoy a glass of chilled beer and lots of great food!
