11 East street Sunday Brunch experience with Oreo !
Rating – 4/5
First & foremost, the most fantastic point about 11esc is – They are pet friendly, yippee 👍🏼Not many places in Pune are pet friendly and that’s so surprising in today’s age and world. Having a pet shouldn’t mean that you no longer can’t go out but I am not sure why this segment is still untapped but full marks to them for being pet friendly and the management was fully cooperative especially their Manager Mr.Akshay Thombre for making our four month old puppy Oreo as comfortable as possible.
Pricing : 1200 and 1500 pp for Brunch with unlimited Sangrias / Beer and Cocktails / Spirits respectively.
Cuisine : Continental and Indian.
Let me cover the points concerning pets and pet parents first:
❤️There’s no separate pet area as such in the place, you could sit wherever you want with your furry child on leash and you both would just do fine.
❤️They do have a housekeeping Team in case your doggy’s natural call gets the better of it, thankfully we were vigilant and we didn’t require it for Oreo😍 but you don’t need to worry about it in case of any eventuality, they have your pet covered😅
❤️While they don’t have any pet specific menu but on request they are always up to make something generic like boiled chicken with rice for your pet if necessary!
❤️One area of concern is the overall place can become way too warm for your pet if you’re not in the range of the on-site cooler, during the afternoons especially, hopefully some steps can be taken to fix this👍🏼
Coming to the human experience part of things, in today’s Sunday brunch the mocktails were pretty much up-to the mark with the Sunsplash Mocktail taking the cake.
Among the food, in starters we found the Chicken Seekh Masala, Jalepeno Cheese Balls, both the veg and non veg pizzas to be nice 👍🏼 The Chicken Seekh Kebab wasn’t the most tender that you will ever find but had a good spicy taste going for it, the Pizzas were cheesy, ever so slightly crunchy and were mildly spiced – a good choice for the accompanying kids to relish these for sure.
What didn’t suit my taste buds among some of the other starters were the Fish in mustard sauce, chilly potato sticks and Hunan Chicken.
In the mains we found the Chicken in ginger chilly Sauce, English chicken in Bbq sauce with veg fried rice go well.
Both the desserts of Fruit cream custard & Sundae Icecream with caramel sauce were good and infact the best items of the meal❤️
Service varied between a tad too slow during starters to pretty quick during the mains & desserts, again Mr.Akshay coming to the rescue. The place was full during the entire time we were there for the Sunday brunch & overall we had a good time despite a few hiccups.
Lastly TheStateBus band rocked the Sunday brunch with some fabulous Bollywood numbers and mostly it was fun to listen to.
This is a spot we will definitely look forward to come to again with our furry angel in the near future for sure🔥
