An excellent outing at the only Miner’s theme cafe in Town !
Rating – 4.5/5
At the only mining theme Cafe in Pune and otherwise wherever I have been so far – had a lovely time with our host Rutuja and team of fellow bloggers. When the company is good and the accompanying food turns out good too then these kind of tastings are the best ones 🙂
Inspired by the “Addas” for miners after a hard day’s work in the City of Asansol and nearby areas , almost each wall within the cafe tells a story on its own and this by far is the most unique theme I have been to any cafe 🙂
However being a foodie, theme etc are fine for me but does the food is good enough too?? Well, the answer is a resounding Yess !Taste is a subjective matter and what I like or recommend you may not like but one thing I can guarantee the food definitely is unique here with a lot of North eastern food flavours which one doesn’t generally get in other places in Pune. Some of my recommendations from today’s tasting are:
Khao Suey with Prawns was pretty tasty and is a meal in itself, this combination of authentic Khao Suey with prawns was something I had for the first time and it was a cool combination indeed !
Club Chicken steak was something you would definitely love with your eyes first with all the colours and to follow up the taste is pretty good too.
Kolkata style Chicken Biryani served with boiled eggs and Tandoori Aloo was pretty decent and the Lucknowi influence with minimal ground spices and more of an aroma was fairly evident.
Tribal fish fingers was pretty tasty – crunchy on the outside and absolutely tender inside.
Latin Quiso Fundido – Molten cheese fondue with mushrooms, croutons and chips is a revelation every single time with the gooey and cheesy sauce to go with with crunchy croutons️.
Jhal Moori was a spicy snack that you can have if you lost your taste buds due to cold/fever as I often do, it was unique and a nice snack that you can continuously munch upon.
Incidentally if you’re not into alcoholic drinks and love your mocktails the Mango Berry is one drink you just can’t afford to miss, this is such a delightful option to have with a milky base and it’s my favourite every time I am out here.
The Desserts – Two of the best desserts one can try here are the Tres Leches cake & the Jurassic Cheese cake, both are awesome though I was a little more inclined towards the cheese cake and it disappeared from the bloggers table in no time.
The Verdict – One thing about them is the quality of all of their stuff is impeccable, no matter what you try – more often than not the end result what you’re going to get is total quality, combine that with a chic ambience & responsive service.
