The Urban Foundry Kalyani Nagar An unusual Foundry Concept, A very successful experiment. The first outlet of TUF (The Urban Foundry) found its due in no time. An intriguing set of interiors with well heeled yet simplistic vibes. Music you can groove to, a scrumptious menu which reads comfort and a drop down list of endless drinks. No points for guessing what ‘attributes’ to TUF’s success. TUF’s long queues are[…]

  • Too much of anything is bad. This applies almost to everything, barring a few exceptions. A simple example could be the L Dorado Burger, tried very recently at their new cafe @ldoradoindia .
.
I love this brand and trust everything that comes out of their kitchen. The burger is massive and layered. A thick chicken patty which has a very subtle flavor at the base, followed by 2 thick chicken strips laid atop beautifully. The contrast is a boon and appeals the meatloving tastebuds. The mozarella cheese sticks tick the melt in the mouth button while the fried egg is a visual delight. All in all, a super filling burger with sauces that blend and compliment. Super stuff, bookmark for your next visit people 🍽🙌🏻

  • This food truck (now parked at FC Road) had been on my list for really long!  Reached @nina.pinta.santamaria.crepes without a plan. Took two seconds to order their ‘Mutton Ki Baat’ Crepe. #PredictableMuch 🤭
.
Being a ‘no crepe’ expert, I have no past experience to rely on. Still choosing to skip the authenticity, the Crepes were better than most places I have tried in Pune. Slightly crispy and the ‘no rising agent’ was honestly showing.
.
Now the filling. It’s so good, it’s flawless. The keema is one of the best mix I’ve ever had! Crepe or no crepe, the keema is done superbly. The blend of spices, the hotness, the mutton mince - all come together beautifully. Need more helpings of that, soon!

  • The Coffee ceremony in Ethiopia is nothing short of adventurous. It's not your 'grab my starbucks on the go', neither a simple 'filter kaapi' culture. Its a very traditonal and time consuming ceremony lasting over an hour. It is a mark of hospitality and respect for the visitors. The Abol, Tona and Baraka are actually 3 rounds of coffee serving that take place. All meals end with coffee and smelling and sipping on it gradually is part of the ritual. .
.
@abyssinian_ind give you that experience right here in Pune. They serve rich dark roasted coffee which is absolute heaven for black coffee lovers. All other details from the lunch now on the blog! #LinkInBio

  • Happened to visit the brand new outlet of @italyviapunjab in Baner,  a couple of days back. The Italian Dhaba (as they proclaim) is spread over a massive 5000 sft space and makes for a perfect family dine out option. Quirky elements, flavours which have mass appeal (understand that their pasta is also done in a very Punjabi way) followed by very competitive pricing. Next time you want to go easy breezy on the pocket (no alcohol btw), head over! .
.
Sharing one of the ‘you-bowl-me-over-dishes’ - Kebab Ki Kadhai. .
One of a kind curry. Assorted kebabs - read variety tossed in a thick and tangy pepper base. Have always been a fan of thick curries and this one is excellent paired with some garlic naan. Mildly spicy, rich and melt in the mouth kebabs!

  • @indebrewco has come up with a new menu with some mind boggling combinations. Detailed review up on zomato, while here’s a glimpse of my favorite from the night🙌🏻
.

👈🏻👈🏻The GARLIC CHILLI FRY is a revelation. This dish was not only the 'high point' of the evening but also revealed a new dimension to my personality, which to this day of my life I was completely unaware of. I didn't know eating 'WHOLE GARLIC CLOVES’ could get me this trippy. The pungency of every clove, quite a few with skin mind you, complimented by a sour(lemon), spicy (green chilli) and nutty (groundnuts) base is magnificent. #DoNotMissThis 🎯

  • Tabakh Maaz - The Kashmiri version of fried lamb ribs is a delicacy you rarely find in Pune. It’s a popular Kashmiri dish where lamb ribs intact with a thick layer of fat, are cooked in dry ginger and whole lot of other spices, further deep fried in ghee. #Droolsome 🎯🍽
.
.
Remember it’s not your usual lamb rib/chop. If you don’t appreciate a slightly chewy version of meat, then steer clear. This ain’t fall of the bone dish because that’s not how the Kashmiris do it. Use your fingers and rip them off #classic
.
.
Find this at the newly opened @chinar.therestaurant (Baner Pashan Link Road). They have an Authentic Kashmiri as well as a fusion menu. While I clearly skipped the latter, the Kashmiri delicacies are truly appreciable. They have chefs from the valley so you know the basics are in place.  Another visit is due to try some more of their stuff! .
.
Recommendations - Gosht mirchi korma and Kashmiri Firni. .

  • There is a picture of the yummiest Cheesecake from @theobromapatisserie up on my story. While this is a picture of an uber delicious bowl of Smoothie with my choice of Almond milk from @chafacafe . Yeah, Both Me. .
.
Two extremes right? This is mostly what living or rather eating on the ‘edge’ translates for me. I could go straight up months without a gram of sugar and won’t hesitate at eating half a kilo cake for lunch and dinner. Bizarre eating habits, ikr. But proud of myself for being so experimental and unapologetically enjoying it😋
.
.
Btw the Smoothie bowls at Chafa are love.  The PINK BOWL (in the picture) is a blend of beetroot, granola, dragon fruits, kefir and black sesame seeds. #AllThingsHealthy and so filling. Pour in your suggestions for smoothie bowls in the city 👈🏻🌈
