Central Pub

Pre nešto više od 6 meseci, Beograd je dobio novo kultno mesto koje morate da posetite! Reč je, naravno, o Central pub-u! Smešten je na mestu nekadašnjeg Perpera, u blizini Merkatora, u delu Novog Beograda koji je poznat po kafićima i restoranima. 
Central pub
Ne možete da promašite ovo mesto, ako se uputite ka njemu. Veliki natpis, konstrukcija od cigle i lepa i prostrana bašta, kad vremenski uslovi dozvoljavaju, već vas na prvi pogled mame da sednete ovde. 
Central pub - bašta
Enterijer će vas, takođe, osvojiti. Veliki prostor, mnogo drvenih stolova, kako običnih, tako i barskih, čine prvi preduslov svakog dobrog paba. Ovde bih se osvrnula na rečenicu koju je moja draga drugarica pomenula u jednom svom tekstu, a to je da se danas svakakva mesta nazivaju pabom. Central pub je pokazao da je i više nego na visini zadatka. Pored već pomenutog preduslova, unutrašnjost krasi i veliki šank, sa raznovrsnim izborom pića. Pored njega, postoji i drugi, kružni šank u centralnom delu paba. Tu je i bina, na kojoj većinu dana u nedelji nastupaju raznorazni izvođači, a u danima kad nema svirke krasi je Harley Davidson, što opet daje šmek koji pab treba da ima. Da bi svi bili zadovoljni, postoji i pušački i nepušački deo, koji ovde nije zanemarljiv, tako da se ovde vodi računa o svačijim potrebama i afinitetima.

Dolazimo sad do onog glavnog što pab zaista čini pabom, a to je izbor piva. Ni ovde ne zaostaju, jer je ponuda piva veoma velika, što točenih, što flaširanih. Svetla, tamna, mutna, sa velikim procentom alkohola, svako ovde može da nađe nešto što mu odgovara (sem jednog člana Gastro policije, kome je omiljeno pivo Grimbergen). Odmah bih se osvrnula i na uslugu. Pab je, ako mene pitate, mesto na kom ćete se pored uživanja u omiljenom pivu, osetiti i kao svoj na svome, što se kaže. To, svakako, nije moguće, bez osoblja koje će vam to omogućiti. Osoblje Central pub-a je baš takvo - ljubazno, srdačno, uvek na usluzi. Već nakon par dolazaka osetićete se kao da imate svog konobara/konobaricu i vremenom ćete imati utisak da ste svratili kod drugara na pivo.

Jelovnikom, kao i izborom piva, mogu da se pohvale. U ponudi imaju sve što mesto ovakvog tipa treba da ima: burgere, kobasice, hot dogove, specijalitete kuće, kao i ponudu doručka. Cene su osrednje, kao i na većini mesta ovog tipa. Možemo da se pohvalimo da smo probale sve burgere, pa počnimo od njih. Ono što je karakteristično za sve je da su baš velike porcije i da ih cena potpuno opravdava. Sveže juneće meso u uvek svežim lepinjama, sa različitim dodacima u skladu sa tim šta preferirate, su nešto što će uvek utoliti vašu glad. Beef burger Central (RSD 810) je pravi izbor ako ste mnogo gladni. Dva juneća burgera koji kao dodatak imaju preprženu slaninu, spremljeni sa kikiriki putrerom, uz salate, čedar sir i vedžis krompir, zadovoljiće i najzahtevnije goste. Italijanski burger (RSD 720) ništa ne zaostaje za prethodnim, tako da u kombinaciji sa jajetom i rukolom teško da ćete u nekom skorijem periodu osetiti glad. Chilli burger (RSD 720), što mu i samo ime kaže, karakteriše chilli sos od habanero paprika, halapenjo paprike, kao i miks salata. Nećete pogrešiti ni ako se odlučite za Regular burger (RSD 690), koji je malo "skromnijeg" sastava: ajzberg, kiseli krastavci, čedar sir i majonez. Uz sve burgere kao prilog se služi pomfrit, pohovani kolutići luka, kao i uvek dva sosa iznenađenja.

Ako vam apetiti ipak nisu toliki, uvek možete da odabere odličnu Biftek salatu (RSD 740). Kombinacija junećeg filea sa miksom ajzberga, uz meni omiljenu rukolu, čeri paradajz i crvenu papriku, sa balzamiko dresingom je sve ono što očekujem od jedne obrok salate. Kad su ovako topli dani, ona mi je uglavnom prvi izbor jer ima osvežavajuću notu.

Od specijaliteta kuće probale smo Pileće štapiće u Paulaner pivu (RSD 490), što je i logično, s obzirom da mi je Paulaner omiljeno pivo. Ovo jelo sastoji se od pohovanog pilećeg belog mesa u pivu, sa već pomenutim kolutovima luka i pomfritom. Kao i prethodna jela i ovo možemo da vam preporučimo.

Jelo koje mi je ovde omiljeno je definitivno Feta u susamu (RSD 270 ). Dva komada pohovane fete sa prelivom od senfa, pomorandže i meda su nešto što veoma često "prezalogajim" kad svratim "samo" na pivo, ali i kad mi je vreme za ručak. Kombinacija sira i meda, uz nezaobilazni susam je praznik za moje čulo ukusa.

Pored uživanja u hrani i pivu, bilo bi šteta ne posetiti Central pub i kad imaju svirke. Pregršt izvođača, sa dobrim izborom pesama, koji prave odličnu atmosferu će vam objasniti zašto je ovde skoro uvek svaki sto rezervisan i veoma teško može samo da se "bane". 
 
Zvuči previše dobro da bi bilo stvarno, zar ne? Ako nam ne verujete, posetite ih i uverite se lično, svojim čulima, a ukoliko ste ljubitelj fudbala, ne morate da idete u Rusiju da pratite svetsko prvenstvo, dovoljno je da posetite Central pub i dočekaće vas navijačka atmosfera kao da ste na tribinama.
Voli vas vaša Angie by Gastro policija!!

Just over 6 months ago, Belgrade got a new cult place that you have to visit! Of course, it's the Central Pub! Before, that was the location of the restaurant Perper, it is near Mercator Mall, in the part of New Belgrade, which is famous for its cafes and restaurants.

Central pub - interior
There is no way you can miss this place while walking by. The large restaurant sign, the brick construction, and the beautiful and spacious garden, very alluring at first glance.

Interior will also amaze you. A large area, many wooden tables, both ordinary and bar tables, are the first precondition for every good pub. Here I would refer to the sentence that my dear friend mentioned in one of her posts, which is that today many places are unjustly referred to as pubs. The Central pub justified its name. In addition to the aforementioned precondition, the interior is adorned with a large bar, with a wide selection of drinks. Besides it, there is another, circular bar in the central part of the pub. There is also a stage where many performers perform most days of the week, and in the days when there is no gig, on that stage you can find Harley Davidson, which again gives the pub vibes that every pub should have. For everyone to be satisfied, there are both a smoking and non-smoking area, which is very appropriate, so this pub looks after everyone's needs and affinities.

We come to the main thing, the most important thing for a pub, and that is the choice of beer. Their selection of beer is very large, both of the draught and bottled ones. Light, dark, wheat, with a high percentage of alcohol, everyone can find something for them here (except of one member of the Gastro police, whose favorite beer is Grimbergen). I would also like to write something about the service. If you ask me, a pub is a place where you will enjoy yourself while drinking your favorite beer. This, of course, wouldn’t be possible without the staff that will make it possible. The staff of the Central Pub is just right for that role - polite, kind, always at your service. After a couple of visits you will feel as if you have your personal waiter / waitress and in time you will have the impression that you stopped by to have beer with a friend of yours. 

And like with their selection of beer, they can brag about the menu as well. They offer everything that the place of this type should offer: burgers, sausages, hot dogs, specialties of the house, as well as the breakfast offer. Prices are average, like in most places of this type. We can say that we have tried all the burgers, so let's start with them. What is significant about them is that the portions are very large and that the price is fully justified. Fresh beef meat, fresh buns, with various ingredients according to your preference, all these will always help in satisfying your hunger. Beef burger Central (RSD 810) is the right choice if you are very hungry. Two beef burgers with crispy bacon, peanut butter, salads, cheddar cheese and potato wedges, this will satisfy even the most demanding guests. Italian burger (RSD 720) doesn’t lag behind the previous one, so after the combination of burger with egg and rocket salad, you won’t feel hungry for a fair amount of time. Chili burger (RSD 720), as its name says, comes with the habanero and jalapeno peppers sauce, and a mix of salads. You won’t make mistake even if you choose the Regular burger (RSD 690), which is a bit "modest" when it comes to the ingredients: iceberg salad, pickles, cheddar cheese and mayonnaise. Fries, onion rings and two random sauces are served with every burger.

If you don’t have a big appetite, you can always choose the excellent Steak Salad (RSD 740). The combination of beef steak with a mix of iceberg salad, along with my favorite rocket salad, cherry tomato and red bell pepper, with balsamic vinaigrette, is all I expect from a meal salad. On hot days like these, it is mostly my first choice because it’s very refreshing.

As for the house specialties, we tried Paulaner beer battered chicken strips (RSD 490), which is logical, since Paulaner is my favorite beer. This dish consists of fried beer battered chicken fillet, with already  mentioned onion rings and French fries. And like the previous dishes, we also recommend this one.

Definitely, my favorite dish here is Fried Feta cheese with sesame (RSD 270). Two pieces of fried Feta with  mustard, orange and honey dressing, that’s something that I snack very often when I come "just" for beer, but also when it's time for lunch. The combination of cheese and honey, along with the unavoidable sesame, is heaven for my palate.

In addition to enjoying food and beer, it would be a pity not visit one of the gigs organized by the Central Pub. A lot of performers, good songs selection, great atmosphere, that explains why every table is almost always booked and why it is very difficult to just "pop in".

Sounds too good to be true, does it? If you don’t believe us, visit this place and see for yourself, and if you are a fan of football/soccer, you don’t need to go to Russia to follow FIFA World Cup, it's enough to visit the Central pub and you’ll feel as if you are a fan on the stadium stands.

Love, Angie Gastro police!!
