Yedapan is all about being crazy, and this newly opened place is surely trying to make you feel the same. Yeda republic is not just a lounge, but it’s a country, having its own guardians, which protects the country. The moment you enter, there are guardians all over the walls, who are protecting their land. On going further, towards your left you’ll see a submarine, next to it is the most happening boat. There is a scientific bar with pipes all flowing up and down; ahead of the bar you have the passion and the pleasure room.
Just like any country it has a host of things for its citizen, from the telephone booth, to the crying room, there is also a private room for small happenings, a café and fine dining inside the Yeda Republic. It surely has something for everyone.
The lounge’s décor keeps getting tweaked to give you different flavor, every time you visit. The place is buzzing with loud music, so don’t go there with the intension of having long chats.
We started with mocktails like Lipstick: The mocktail had Orange, Cranberry and lime juice, tad bit sweeter than the usual.
Sex on the Beach: It was a blend of Orange, Peach and sugar syrup, both the mocktails almost bit alike to me.
Bawa PopCorn: The tender chicken poppers, were served piping hot with green chutney, it was quite flavorful and delicious, try it.
Tulsi Wali Galli Ki Machli: Chunks of boneless Basa fish were served with onion rings, mint leaves and green chutney. I found some of the chunks were a bit salty, compared to others, but overall was great.
Honey Soya Sticky Wings: The Chicken wings were topped with chopped scallions and white sesame seeds, on the sides were freshly made French fries. The wings were delectable, with balanced taste and flavors. Try it!
Chettinad Chicken Paratha: My personal favorite of the evening, the minced chicken were coated with crunchy golden not so thick paratha, which was served with Sour cream and Tomato Salsa. The Paratha was quite appetizing for sure; go for it if you’re a Paratha lover.
Butter Chicken Dal Khichdi from Yeda Tiffin Section: In this 3 section tiffin you have cucumber, Carrot, Radish and Lemon Salad in one section, Butter Chicken and Dal Khichdi in the others. It can be a proper meal for two, the butter chicken was a tad spicy and not sweet like usual, overall it’s quite a decent and safer option to opt for.
Lastly, we had Chocolate Hazelnut Fondant: The Fondant was covered with a layer of chocolate on top which, when scooped; oozes the chocolate, served with a scoop of Vanilla ice cream on the bed of crunched hazelnut, garnished with chocolate syrup.
Overall, Visit Yeda Republic, let your crazy side come out in this country filled with Yedas, perfect to embrace your yedapan with friends. Music, Dance, madness is all in here.
