“It’s always good to explore new places and find one which serves good food that satisfies your soul” this is what my heart says. But is it so easy to get one, after exploring day by day the results were good. Me along with my foodie friends visited Pune to cherish array of food served there. But it was shocking to see Pune offering lot more options than food when it comes to food ranging from classical to traditional to fusion. We started our journey by visiting Savya Rasa which is a fine dinning restaurant that attempts to break out of the deep-rooted stereotypes and offer patrons a wide variety of delicacies carefully picked from South India and tell their stories through the medium of food. Savya Rasa, with its cultural and artistic ambiance, is a beautiful blend of the exquisiteness and vibrancy of different parts of Southern India. The carefully curated art, artifacts, architectural elements and music add to the overall experience of the space. To know more about this place read below:-
I wouldn’t mind having rasam any time of the day. It has a very refreshing essence which elevates all the sensory organs of your body. It was drizzling with the cold breeze moving in that day, a sip of it everything came to stand still. It had strong flavour of spices along with sourness of tomato and well balanced concoction. Encore is what I would say after every sip. Must Try!
As soon as the next course arrived , they looked like fluffy rice buns served along with different assortment of chutney. For this preparation lentils and rice are soaked overnight, then stone grinded to give that smooth consistency, later blended along with spices and shallow fried till golden brown. The best part was that it was stuffed with 3 types of chutney so as soon as you bite through it will ooze out giving enough moisture to the bun.
Chanaga Pappu Vada
Pollachi Kari Kuzhambu with Bun Parotta
A rich, semi dry and spicy mutton gravy served along with bun parotta. The mutton dices were slow cooked along with cinnamon, cardamon, fenneal, drumstick and black peper which made the mutton tender, mouth melting and juicy. It was served long with ban parotta which is nothing but fluffly multilayered bread made with efined wheat flour, egg and butter.
Gongura Mamsam with Godhumai Rotti
Another lamb curry which was little sour in taste with a hint of spice served along with Godhumai Rotti. This dish had an unusual combination of sorrel leaves and meat but trust me my taste buds enjoyed it thoroughly. To add on, a whole wheat bread flavoured with shallots, green chili, curry leaves and coriander is served along with it. A complete meal in itself. Must must try!
