Cocktail Tales – Penthouze, Mundhwa, Pune

Penthouze Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Located on the 14th floor of the Onyx Tower, this club offers a unique setting. You get a chance to get high on the striking view of the Pune city from this club. The whole place is divided into two sections the inside section and the outside seating area and the bar is on both the sides, I would definitely vouch for the outside section…well this is where the party actually happens…

Here is the overview of the amazing evening that I had at this roof top party place

And yes there are days my camera is temperamental and does not take decent pictures. Thank you Maanas Shah from http://foodieblog.in/  for coming to my rescue…

Cocktails

13th Rooftop Caipirinha [Rs. 500] – lemon chunks muddled with White Rum pomegranate juice, lime juice and sugar syrup and garnished with pomegranate seeds. One of the best cocktails I have had in recent times

The Indian Summer – A gin drink made with raspberry liquor blended with in-house tonic water  and lime juice, garnished with kaffir lime and rosemary. A desi twist to the regular gin and tonic.

Dreadlock Mojito [Rs. 400] – Made with dark rum, white rum and passion fruit puree this is one brilliantly concocted drink

Paan Mojito – A standard mojito but infused with betel leaf flavors. Loved the blend, loved the drink. The first time the paan flavors were too strong

Date Me [Rs. 350] – Bacardi, egg white, cherry, sweet and sour. Garnished with a fresh maraschino cherry and rose petals. I have an aversion to egg whites, my counterparts on the table loved it though

Appetizers

Panko Fried Mediterranean Mushrooms [Rs. 300] – Fresh button mushrooms stuffed with pesto, mayo served with spicy dip. This one was a flavor bomb, and to top it off perfectly cooked mushrooms

Stuffed Mozzarella Chicken [Rs. 300] – Chicken stuffed with fresh mozzarella cheese and marinated with mixed herbs. You will get a cheesegasm here. A very well made dish

Fresh Basil Indian Salmon [Rs. 400] – Well cooked salmon marinated in pesto sauce and five spice results in a happy me

Parmesan Crusted Chicken [Rs. 350] – Chicken breast, sprinkled with parmesan and served with olives and balsamic cilantro sweet chilly dip. This the crust…you will fall in love with it

Paneer Hariyali Tikka [Rs. 350] – bell peppers, paneer and spinach in a spicy marination. Served on a grill the paneer was soft, charred and with that smoky taste that accentuates the flavor

Mains

Char Grilled Tiger Prawns  [650] –  Served with orange lemon sauce, house salad and grilled zucchini with a mushroom risotto. This was one plate that you can’t refuse. Risotto cooked to  perfection and the prawn was cooked exactly the way I like it, not overcooked and hard but that fine line between hard and soft

Penne Pesto Sauce [Rs. 400] – This was a usual fare.as one cant go wrong with it at all.

Lamb Burger [Rs. 500] – A well done lamb patty, a tad overcooked for me . The caramelized onions added a nice touch of sweetness to the burger

Penne Pink Sauce [Rs. 375] – A combination of the red and white sauces

Seafood Saffron Risotto [Rs. 550] –  #HighlyRecommended They have found the mantra to cook the perfect risotto. Add top up seafood like the squid, clams and prawns in a creamy saffron sauce you have the best mains for the day.

Dessert

Chocolate Big Bang [Rs. 300] – The theatrics will please you but in the end it is just chocolate fudge and icecream.
