Sugar Bistro & Co. – A perfect place to hang out! — Reviewed!

One of the sophisticated Bistros in Jaipur's latest dining scene is the Sugar Bistro and Co. which is located behind the notable World Trade Park in Malviya Nagar. Take a few steps to enter the world of classic bistro having minimalist ambiance, scrumptious food, and courteous staff.

Tastefully done decor, use of blue and beige, wooden furniture, hanging artificial planters, mellow music in the background are some of the features of this wonderful bistro. Apart from indoor seating, one can also opt to sit and enjoy the leisurely outdoors. Colorful frames with food quotes adorn the wall and comfortable seating makes it a perfect place to hang out!

The menu ranges from Indian, Continental to Chinese. One can sip some sinful frappes or grab a cup of cappuccino with the small bites. We tried the following from the menu...
  • Veg Cheese Grilled Sandwich (4/5)
  • Bhaji with Hot Fondue (4/5)
  • Farm House Pizza (4/5)
  • Sugar Special Tandoori Platter (4.5/5)
  • Caramel Frappe (4/5)
The classic Veg Cheese Grilled Sandwich was delicious. Filled with the veggies, cheese, mayo and grilled to perfection, it was served with some chips. The crunch, texture, and flavour was spot on. Loved it! I paired it with super delicious, quintessential sweet Chocolate Shake. A must-have!

A surprise was the Bhaji with Hot Fondue. With the Fondue in mind, I had visions of it presented in the communal pot over a stove however it was hot bhaji in a bowl and bite-sized pav chunks. Nevertheless, the taste of Bhaji was perfect – medium spiced. I could not take my eyes off the cute, soft, fresh pav bites. Addition of Cheese would have done wonders.

Thin crust Farm House Pizza was served next. Broccoli, Bell Peppers, Jalapeno and Cherry Tomatoes were loaded over the thin, nicely cooked pizza base. Delicious! You can also order their popular Pasta or Mexican Burger.

Had to try something from the Indian cuisine. So, ordered Sugar Special Tandoori Platter. A good choice if you are looking for multiple choices in a single serving. Beautiful presentation! The platter had Malai Broccoli, Paneer Tikka, Mushroom, and Hara Bhara Kebab. Each one was fresh and delicious. Tikkas had scrumptious marination and Kebabs were beautifully made. Loved it! Must try!

Winded up the lunch meal with the delicious Caramel Frappe.

Overall, had a great experience at the Sugar Bistro and Co. A perfect place to go on a date, or hang out with family and friends.

La Kebabiya – Honest Awadhi food finally! — Reviewed!

What: North Indian, Awadhi and Mughlai Food
Where: Kharadi; Delivery across Pune
Time: 12noon – 4pm, 7pm – 1am
Contact: 020 71966946

Awadhi cuisine is highly influenced by Mughals and the dishes also known as nawabi foods are cooked in rich exotic spices, herbs, and dry-fruits. Usually, Awadhi food is concomitant with the meat. How often do we get to eat scrumptious authentic Vegetarian Awadhi food and that too in a non-Awadhi region like Pune?

Le Kebabiya has got you covered! A delivery-only kitchen based in Kharadi is serving some amazing Mughlai and Awadhi food to your comfort. Being a vegetarian, I was really excited to try some of the exclusive dishes from the menu. Ordered for the following....
  • Veg Galouti Kebabs (4.5/5)
  • Butter Paneer (4/5)
  • Lachcha Parantha (3.5/5)
  • Ulte Tawe ka Parantha (4/5)
  • Mushroom Cheese Garlic Parantha (4.5/5)
  • Veg Biryani (5/5)
The delivery was prompt, punctual and hassle-free. The boxes were nicely packed and were spill-free. Started our meal with the Kebabs and trust me they were one of the finest melt-in-mouth Galouti Kebabs (Rs.170) until now. Minced veggies were medium spiced and not too oily. Each serving had 6 pieces. Quite filling. Highly Recommended!

I found Butter Paneer (Rs.200) tad oily however it tasted good. The tomato-based rich gravy was suitable for the medium-spiced palate. Delicious combo when paired with the soft Ulte Tawe ka parantha. I wish Lachcha Parantha had more multi-layers to give it a crisp texture.

The Mushroom Cheese Garlic Parantha (Rs.130) was surprisingly delectable! Served with the portion of Dal Makhani and Butter, the parantha was a meal in itself. Dal Makhani was the star-dish and the smoky flavour and aroma to the dal elevated the taste to the next level. Wish the dal makhani was served a bit more with the paranthas. Highly Recommended!

Lastly, the most awaited and the show-stopper of the meal was the flavoursome Veg Biryani (Rs.200) accompanied with raita and chutney. As soon as you open the box, the burst of aroma drives you to devour the biryani right away! One of the best Biryanis I have had. The balance of flavours, a drizzle of kevda water, caramelized onions, layered paneer underneath the bed of aromatic long rice is what defines this dish. Do not forget to try the Biryani!

I am pleased to find La Kebabiya to satisfy the cravings of Awadhi Food. Desserts were missing on the menu; hope they introduce it some time soon.
