Bombay Brasserie- foodies delite

It was a weekend and we, friends decided to dine out for dinner with our family. With so many unique and innovative restaurants popping up almost every second day in Pune, deciding a fine dine place is like holding a long debate at home. Due to the big shift in the dietary trends, pleasing everyone under one roof is certainly becoming a challenge now-a-days. Recently, someone had mentioned about a new restaurant at Nitesh Hub Pune called Bombay Brasserie.

the dishes served in Bombay Brasserie are prepared with a new twist to our familiar spices and flavor.I believe Bombay Brasserie was originally launched in 1989 and apart from Mumbai, it had its outlets at Bangalore, Kolkatta and Chennai. Sadly, it got shut down in 2002 and now they have relaunched it, with a different flair, finesse, and flavor.

After a long contemplation, all of us agreed to try out Bombay Brasserie.

One could get awestruck at the first glance of the restaurant. The ambience is tastefully done with antique pieces. The blue wooden chairs and long hanging bulbs makes the place more appealing and the swing type sofas add zing to the same. The wait staff were courteous and helpful, and we got a large table near the window providing a good view.

Though Indian cuisine is rated as one of the top 10 best cuisines in the world, for Indians, it can become monotonous to try Indian cuisine at the restaurant too! But the dishes served in Bombay Brasserie are prepared with a new twist to our familiar spices and flavor.

We decided to start with some mocktails and BB mocktails had unique names like Angoori Soda, Kallangadi Quench Kairi Sherbet, Peru Pleasure, Melon magic and so on. The Angoori soda and kairi Shebet that we had ordered did justice to their names.

Even the starters were unorthodox. Gun powder potatoes, chilli cheese kulcha, Paneer Aam Papad and their long list might test your craving for food. As our stomach started growling loud, we quickly ordered chilli cheese kulcha, Hyderbadi Subz Shikampuri and Galawati kebab. We were 8 of us and we ordered two plates of each. There were only 6 pieces in each plate.

Chilli Cheese Kulcha was crispy on the outside contrasting to the melting cheese inside. Hyderabadi Subz Shikampuri was the house specialty and it lived up to the recommendation. I would like to try spicy pahadi mushrooms and gun powder aloo next time. Non- vegies should try Old Delhi Murg Boti with butter roomali and Calcutta Club fish fry too.

Moving on to the main course, we ordered Jaipur kofta, paneer sirka pyyaz, Tarkari Maseledar and rajputana murg sola kebab. The fig in the kofta was the surprise element. The spices in the Maseladar gravy relished our taste buds. The highlights were the indian breads. We ordered chur-mur paratha and some roomalis. 

By then, we were all so stuffed. Though we did not have any room in our stomach, their distinct desserts could not be denied. We ordered for Grandma’s choco treat and Anglo indian bread pudding.

As the night progressed, even though the music played by the DJ was enjoyable, it was a bit too loud to carry out a conversation. It costed us Rs 800/- per person approximately and all of us walked out guilt free because it was worth it. Not to forget the elegant bag of BB in which they had packed the left-over food of ours. 

The glitzy deluxe interiors, friendly staff, novel thirst quenchers, delectable food and lip smacking desserts makes BB, a blockbuster package. Overall an enjoyable experience…
