Smooth Mushrooms: It goes as per the name. Smooth and Juicy served with mascapone cheese, with a black pepper and garlic marination and drizzled with Balsamic. All the flavors were perfectly blending the Mushrooms.

img_20171010_200712-011615058477.jpeg

Silken Tofu and Broccoli: I expected the Tofu being soft but it disappointed my expectations. The Tofu was too chewy, so left the dish after the first bite.

Pizza:

Harissa Paneer Steak: Nice thick round slice Paneer with the colourful sides gave this a appetising feel when placed on the table. The sides of spaghetti zucchini and assorted vegetables. Basically Harissa has two variants Red and Green Harissa. This was the Green Harissa marination on the paneer. Paneer had the smoky flavours along with the spiciness of paste.

Desserts:

We were served,
Baked New York Cheesecake, Double Chocolate Brownie, Tutti Frutti Trifle Pudding, & Chocolate Cherry Sachertorte: The much liked and slurped off the plate among them was the Baked NY Cheesecake, it was finished within seconds actually! Brownie was bit hard to scoop with ice cream. Tutti Frutti Trifle would be loved by the kids as it had lot of cream and Tutti Frutti along with jelly. Chocolate Cherry Sachertorte, as I have had the original Sachertorte in Vienna where this dessert is originated from, this was not even close to that.

Overall it was a mix review of the place and the food they serve.

A big shout out to Amir for inviting us and Team Mooie Café for hosting us.

1BHK Superbar – Reviewed

Warning this is not the Real Estate blog! It’s about the food and the new and super bar which has come up in the Baner.

The Story of this 1BHK goes something like this: While India was going through unprecedented shocks of abolition of high value currency,two friends Heramb Shelke and Vijay Shinde met hospitality professional and restaurateur Rajat Grover.

In this meeting, Heramb Shelke floated the idea of venturing together into hospitality, on which the passionate and hospitality inclined trio agreed.

The three of them concluded on venturing together with an initiative of introducing an indigenous chain of restaurants.

Incarnated by the thought of, people wanting to buy and sell away their homes in a financial frenzy caused by demonetisation, BHK was very much the buzz word during these days of darkness.

Inspired by the talk of the town they decided to name their culinary venture 1BHK.

Within no time, the consociates collaborated and began to give shape to their dream venture 1-BHK – Bar, Hauté and Kitchen, with 2 and 3BHK in the pipeline…

The Superbar is a global comfort dining with an innovative beverage repertoire.

Pune being a growing hub for food enthusiasts & connoisseurs alike, the trio concluded on rooting in the seeds of this Super Luxury bar and dining culture, located at the bustling neighbourhood of Baner -Balewadi

A two-storey construction is occupying the heart of Pune’s upscale and ever expanding Baner-Balewadi area.

On the ground level is the alfresco promenade and the brasserie offering salads, soups, sangrias, coffee and juices with a take-away option.

The high energy Superbar separates the tapas and dining section and is designed for easy interaction with the guests whilst seated on high-stools.

The hauté cuisine served in the dedicated casual dining is comfort world food with an Indian reach.

Diner’s coziness will never be at take with only one of its kind Jhula-Table concept that lets you walk around with all ease.

Expect touches of elegance & details while you dine & relish the scrumptious menu on offer.

By day 1BHK functions as a hangout place for friends, families and corporates and by night it smoothly shifts gears to become a high energy bar where the night is always young.

There is a private bar/tapas area that will be available on a prior reservation.

Every single thing at this place is a upshot of the owner and his partners. This place has it’s own charm. Once you enter the place you can see by yourself that every minute details of the wall art or objects placed on the shelves has a reason to be there. There are almost 28k wooden danglers hanging from the ceiling.

The B Team was invited for the tasting of their some Super Signature Dishes.

As we were exploring the place and the wide spread menu Mr. Rajat joined us for the Lunch. He gave us more information about the Place, Menu, and the delicious food they serve. The Menu is nicely curated while mentioning the country of origin of a particular dish. The offering from the Menu is a global affair and it has huge option to choose from, for a Vegetarian like me.

We Started With some Cocktails:

The Taxicol: This is one hell of a drink. Its has a Mix overload of rum, with white, dark and spiced rums was an immensely potent drink. After this you really need to call for a taxi!

The 1BHK Bartenders Special Vodka Cheesecake: This was the beauty in itself and very well presented. A perfect mix of premium quality Ketel One vodka and blended with Cheesecake. This was served with Freshly made Cheesecake to compliment the drink.

The Nasha Paan: It was the hatke drink and is made with vodka and gin and has a nice strong flavor of the betel leaf, served in Martini Glass.

Salads:

Valencia Orange and Apple Fusion Salad (Spain/Fusion): Freshly Diced fruits and some some cheese along with jalapeños and black olives to cut the taste. It was nice mixed flavorful bowl.

Tapas:

Garlic Mushrooms with Pita Bread (London) : The Garlic Mushroom dip is to die for so #yummilious. This is also served with Naan instead of pita bread,which make it an Indian version of it.

Mushroom Scampi (Italy): This is a Vegetarian version of Prawns Mushroom Scampi. It is stuffed and aptly baked with a Googy Cheese. It is served in fully loaded miniature Truck.

Nazza:

Butter Paneer Nazza: First came the Nazza and then came the Nanza as we all know! They are pioneers to introduce this dish way back in early 2000 and still going strong. So they have added this to the Menu of 1BHK as well. Loaded with Paneer chunks marinated in butter and mix of Indian Spices on a naan as a base to make it a proper MADE IN INDIA with all the love!

Mains:

1BHK Cottage Cheese Steak in JD Sauce
(Indian/fusion) : This is a perfect fusion food with alcohol. A big chunk of stuffed paneer along with some grilled veggies tossed in Barbeque Sauce which had Jack Daniel whisky infused in it. A total blissful food served on the table.

Desserts:

1BHK Blueberry {Philadelphia} Cheesecake: This what I call the original Philadelphia Cheese Cake. The Cheese used is originally imported from Philadelphia and this can be felt right when you scoop it. Purely
delicious.

Choc Choc Hazelnut Brownie with Vanilla Ice-cream and Hot Chocolate Sauce: 1BHK is here to serve a trend no more sizzling Brownie served on the hot plate! Freshly baked Hazelnut Brownie with a dollop of a vanilla ice-cream makes this dessert stand out from the rest.

Napoli Tiramisu: Again 1BHK has it’s own version of Tiramisu. It is served with crisp and crunchy biscuit to balance the taste of tiramisu.

Overall….

1BHK has taken the Pune’s food and party scene to the next level. The food is delicious and good amount of portion size. They don’t have a dance floor as such but you can taken on the table and let loose all your madness of the party mood…no one is stopping you doing this. It’s time to change the way Pune party and 1BHK is the place to be.

A big shout out to Devendra for inviting us and Rajat and Team 1BHK Superbar for hosting us.

wp-image-1774116832

Why all the Non-vegetarian’s should have fun!

No matter it might be fine dining, great food, fancy preparation of food, now the Vegetarians have their own place to relish delicious food with great ambience.
Let me introduce you all a place called Panayaa- A Modern Indian Kitchen. It’s a Mumbai-based chain of restaurant. It has open its doors recently in pune at Mariplex Mall Kalyani Nagar. Here Pure vegetarian food becomes even more stylish and contemporary taking the food to the next level.

Panayaa aims to re-invent desi gourmet with some crazy, wacky and out-of-the-box culinary experiments. From molecular gastronomy to the best that regional India has to offer.

The BTeam invited for tasting some of their signature dishes.

We started with a round of some Mocktails like Exotic Punch, Black Beauty, Blue sea, Guava Luscious (most favorite of the lot)

As I said Panayaa aims to re-invent desi gourmet, the first appetizer was:

wp-image-612040550wp-image-448246860wp-image-2098335388

Wada Pav Ver. 3.0 : It was much more improvised version can any one think off. Small buns stuffed with the spiced up potato and it was flawlessly baked. Just it could have been stuffed with more of spiced mashed potato then it could have been on dot.

wp-image-401245123wp-image-125841002

Cottage Cheese Indiana: A regular tandoori marination paneer cubes were mouth melting. It had perfect combination of spice selection. It was served with salad.
wp-image-1844624245wp-image-1356627683

Corn Bhel Maze Cornetto: Now this is called an innovation!! five crisp maze cone stuffed with creamy corn bhel and zingy bell pepper frosting. The appetiser was served in a brandy snifter glass and it was the most fancy looking dish of the evening.
wp-image-1966805026wp-image-1255504399wp-image-553881704

Chana Masala Wonton Chat: Crispy wontons stuffed with chatpata channa laid on the bed of channa masala topped with smoked and mint chutney garnished along with shredded raw beet, carrot and some sev. A overall perfect fusion of two cuisines.
wp-image-117859324wp-image-264224359
Nazakat Kumbh: Big in size and juicy mushrooms marinated with smoky flours of tandoor with a hint of mixed indian spices. Nice recommendation for the mushrooms lovers.
wp-image-1882615901

Roomali Roti Italiano: Even the regular Masala papad is upgraded with a twist of Italian touch. Crisp papad with Masala toppings loaded with cheese served on a pizza bat. One good thing about this was, that the base was crisp till the last bite.

Mains:
wp-image-1334471315
Panayaa e Khaas: This is a signature subji from the chef. This was one of the best subji’s served for the evening. Soft Panner cubes tossed in a rich brown gravy. It goes well with all types of breads.

wp-image-79242410
Kheema Kasturi: Perfectly Minced Mixed vegetables cooked in kasturi methi flavoured caramelised brown gravy. It was garnished with fresh cream to balance the flavours.
wp-image-978081399

Papad Kofta Curry: Papad dumplings stuffed with the panner mixed with chefs special spices, cooked in a Makhani gravy. The papad dumplings lost its taste due to overpowering flavour of Makhani gravy.

wp-image-1593748336

wp-image-565134766

Dal Tadkewali and Makhani Biryani: Dal was purely yum. Strong flavours of fresh tadka and it was aptly thick. Although the Biryani didn’t clicked the taste buds as it was too soggy.

Desserts:

wp-image-957053401wp-image-2016092478

Mohanthaal Cheesecake: Some traditional desserts taste excellent as they are kept its originality intact. This didn’t appeal to me much.

wp-image-293930195

Chocolate Landscape: This dessert was dramatically constructed with nitrogen infused ice on Mud cake soil and brownie chunks, fresh fruits are also used like Kiwi and Apple chunks, drizzled with Coco powder, Vanilla Ice cream and Caramel Mousse made from the dry ice, and loads of chocolate and caramel sauce. It is prepaid on the table itself. It almost takes seven minutes to reach the final stage.

Overall the journey of Panayaa was good. Although the price range is on a higher side, but if you want to try something extraordinary in vegetarian then this is the place.

Dalchini – India on your Plate – Reviewed

In India water changes its taste at every mile while a new dialect emerges every 4 Miles. This also adds to the Culinary variety that India has to offer. From Condiments and the spices to the varied cooking techniques, each one adds a unique flavour to different regional cuisines of India. This is what a Dalchini tries to offer all the different flavours of rich Indian Cuisine to your table.

I was Invited for the food tasting of such colourful and rich flavours of Indian Cuisine.

We started the evening with homemade and localised beverages from all over India.

Beverages:

Neer More, Pudine ki Shikanji, Gud di Lassi

Neer More: We in Pune also have the version of Buttermilk and we call it as “Taak”, But this was from the Chennai with a hint of curry leaf which gives a nice after taste of the curry leaves. Perfect in consistency. Its good to include Buttermilk in your daily meal.

Pudine ki Shikanji: This was the most refreshing drink of all. Tangy with a minty taste which is also gives a kick start to your digestive system. This should not be missed.

Gud Di Lassi: Typical Punjabi lassi, nice and thick, and you can have guilt free as it was sweetened with Jaggery. You should have a palate ready for the Jaggery infused Lassi.

Salads:

Beetroot PachadiBeetroot Pachadi
Beetroot Pachadi: Big chunks of boiled beetroot nicely mixed with curry leaf infused Yogurt. This was aptly sweet and sour with a slight after taste of curry leafs. This was nice and heathy way to have the Beetroot.

Appetizers:

Kundapur Aloo Ghee RoastKundapur Aloo Ghee Roast
Kundapur Aloo Ghee Roast: This had a strong connection with the costal region of Karnataka’s town name called Kundapur .The Potato Ghee Roast looks fiery with potato cubes dressed in a glossy scarlet hue, tempered with fragrant curry leaves, tossed in the freshly ground bevy of aromatic spices and roasted in ghee to give you a lip smacking dish worth every bite.  Kundapur Masala Powder is an indigenous, versatile spice mix which is used to flavour and give a distinct character to the universally popular Mangalorean Bunt Community specialty dish known as “Chicken Ghee Roast”, This was a Vegetarian version of it with Potato.

Palak Papadi Chaat

Phaldari Kofta: As the name suggest its not the regular Mugalai Kofta, but a very unique combination of Raw Banana and Pumpkin kofta in a rich creamy brown gravy. If nobody tells you that what the kofta are made from you won’t able to guess it. This was so nicely made. The kofta’s were so delicate and the gravy was perfect with the spice levels.

img_20170803_213012-011600716730.jpeg
Chennar Dolna: A traditional recipe from Bengali cuisine. So basically chenna is the coagulated milk and paneer is the coagulated milk which has been set firmly.

24 Gante ki Dal: Its a very rare to get the nice and creamy dal in Pune which is slowed cooked almost for 24 hours and so the name goes for it. Thick and rich in aroma, creamy and I bet you just can’t stop having it.

IceKraft- Lets paint the town Black

Mumbai based brand has setup three outlets in Pune. IceKraft, crafting happiness is known for their Gothic black ice cream. The goth culture is now reflected in the ice creams as well. So all the black lovers Ice Kraft is where you would definitely like to visit. Know that when you have the black charcoal ice cream you’re in for a surprise because the ice cream is black but has a hint of the orange flavour which only works in the favour of it.

IceKraft’s Black magic is spreading fast among the foodies and the youngsters. This is one of the very unique ice-cream which has activated edible charcoal in it. Along with Ice-cream they have lot many thing to offer, like Nutella Freaky shake, waffles, pancakes, fries, different types of corn based dishes, some healthy salads and sandwiches. So its a one stop destination for the all the age group.

The B Team was invited for the tasting some of their Snacks and the of-course the Black Ice Cream.

The Hurricane Fries: Its a Twisted/tornado Potato fried and drizzled with flavour of your liking which are mentioned in the menu. It was nice and crisp till the end.

Zucchini Fries: Crunchy with soft steamed zucchini inside sprinkled with their secret spices. Something really hard to find in a regular cafes.

Sweet Potato Fries: It had sweet and spicy taste to it which made this stand out from the regular masala fries.

Crinkle Cut Fries: Nice big chunky pieces with the similar masala sprinkled on it which was on the sweet potato fries, this made bit difficult to differentiate between the both. Although you have different option of sprinkles to choose from like Herbed, Paprika, Cheesy, Chaat and Pepper.

Steamed Corn with Pepper: This was the taste changer dish from the course which was served till now. Hot and spiced up with Pepper golden corns tossed with butter.

Desserts:

Coffee based Absolute Chocolate Freak Shake: This had a coffee base, Oreo, Nutella, brownies, choco-chips and hot fudge, it was one of the messy shake I have ever eaten. Once it is placed on your table you should stop counting your calories intake. This was really nice in taste, but mind it, you will have to share it!!! Its huge!!

Chocolate Pancake: Moving on to a much decent and well plated item from the menu was this Pancake. Nice hot pancake is soaked in Chocolate syrup.

Waffle with Black Ice Cream: This was out of the menu. generally they serve it with the regular waffle but just for us the owner wanted us to try it out and give the feedback. As the waffle was hot the Ice cream was melting and it got messy by the time we tried to capture some amazing pictures.

Black Monster: This was as usual the star of the evening, Black Waffle cone with steel grey with Activated Charcoal Ice-cream with some shredded Choco-chips sprinkled on it. Wow this the first expression come in when the ice-cream was served. There was bee line for capturing the best picture of it. It altogether a different experience to have it. It was perfectly sweetened and had a very earthy taste to it.

A big shout out to Ishita for inviting us and Mohit and Team Icekraft for hosting us.

They are one of the oldest and largest bakeries in central Pune. Started in year 1967 at Budhwar Peth, Pune. Well known for satisfying the taste buds of Puneites. Today the 3rd generation is managing the business with completely new perspective of modernisation & management.

For ever increasing demand they have expanded the manufacturing capacity by establishing huge new factory setup at Wakad in 25,000 sq.feet area. Here they have separate unit to manufacture pure vegetarian baked products, so pure veg. from New Poona Bakery is really a 100% pure veg. most of the customer is aware of it and appreciate it a lot. The set up is to cater segment like institute, industries, IT sector, hotels and specialty caterers. Hardly there is anyone in Pune who don’t know New Poona Bakery (NPB).

Recently I received an Gift hamper of their lovely products. The delivery person was at my door by sharp 8am and he delivered the fresh products like:

1. Garma Garam Pattice : I have been eating these pattice since childhood. Nice crisp almost oil free with good amount of stuffing. Best for the Sunday family Chai time.

2. Fudge Brownies: I had never tried these before, These were really good, not too sweet not to dry.

3. Whole Wheat Toast: Toast are the one of the best products NPB have, Nice and crunchy, and you can have guilt free as there are made up of whole wheat.

4. Makkhan Khari: Their Khari is very different from the regular khari which you can buy from the local market. Taste wise it has little sweet taste and the crunch makes it different from the others.

5. Special Toasted Butter Buns: I have eaten toasted buns from Kolhapur but now onwards these will be in my house. Perfectly baked, crunchy and very good in taste.

6. Butterscotch Cookies: I found bit hard at the centre and too greasy.

7. Authentic Maharashtrian Bhel or rather Puneri Bhel ( with Ready mix Packets Inside): These is perfect small family pouch for evening snacks. Kids loved the taste and its very easy to make. Very nicely packed.

Over the years NPB has introduced many new products without compromising the quality and the quantity and thats what the legends do. NPB is truly a Legendary Bakery on Pune.
