The craft beer scene in India is sure emerging and we have evolved from the times were the only choices in beer were strong and mild and now beer isn’t just beer its anywhere between blond, stout, cider, ale or porter…And I am in love with not just the beers but the craft as well. And thanks to that it is a very rare occasion that I reach out to the bottles unless well unless there is big gathering at home primarily due to the unavailability of craft beers in the bottle Continue reading
As you venture into The House of Medici, gracefully carpeted wooden floors, luxuriant leather furnishings, artistic Italian sculptures and royal chandeliers greet to give you a feeling of pure affluence. And by the time you move forward a 104 foot long horse shoe shaped bar with a 34ft height will tower over you, everything here exudes such opulence that you take a step back and let the interiors sink in. Check out my experience here Continue reading
Tertullia has never disappointed me…it is one of the restaurants that has been quite consistent with their offerings. My usual go to meeting place and I may have tried their one dish n number of times but nothing changes in terms of taste and texture. And let me tell you their new additions to the menu look equally tempting and stunning. Read on to check out my dining experience at Tertullia Koregaon Park
Well this salad is definitely one of those that #BellydrivenRecommends For me it is a complete meal in itself, this kale quinoa salad is healthy and hearty. You’ll love the crunchy walnuts, toasted almonds and sweet dates! All of this topped with a heavenly lime parmesan dressing. I can just have this salad with one of the fresh fruit juices on the menu and that will kind of sort my lunch scenes Continue reading
Indigo Deli was my usual hangout in Mumbai…I must have spent a ton of time haunting their Bandra joint, I was happy when they opened in Powai, because it was closer to home and travel time was reduced to 1/10th of the usual….And even though I moved to Pune whenever I was in Mumbai I would go back to have breakfast there before I started my day. So I was happier- read ecstatic when I heard that the opened in Pune and that too at Phoenix Market City and much much closer to home… So in a way wherever I go Indigo follows 😉
I was initially skeptical, if they would be able to give me the same experience that I used to have in Mumbai in terms of food, or whether they would treat Pune as the wicked cousin but all my inhibitions went out of the park with the experience that I had in their 92 seater, warmly lit space at Phoenix Market City Pune. Read on for my adventures here… Continue reading
Pit Stop: Effingut Baner – People don’t just get together to talk about beer but it is always the other way around, the Beer gets people together to talk. And that is exactly what Effingut facilitates. Some great conversations coupled with a fantastic ambience where one can actually Live (not literally), Work, Learn and Play and oh yes EAT too. Effingut is a kind of place that knits people together. You don’t know you need a place like that in your life until you find one, or until you’ve had one and lost it. It is an experience in itself to experience.
Teddy Boy is another one of Priyank Sukhija’s creations. And this one does not disappoint either. Another feather in the hat for Baner for adding to its repertoire of pubs in Pune. The cuisines include North Indian, Continental, Finger Food with a lot of fusion.
The food menu has been conceptualized by Doyel Sarangi of MasterChef fame from Kolkata. The bar menu is equally diverse, comprising shots, signature and classical cocktails and, most entertainingly, bantas. You will see saddi dilli’s favorite street drink appears coolly in a jazzed-up avatar. Continue reading
