Be on a gastronomical world tour @ Asanjo, Aundh, Pune

Here comes yet another global cuisine restaurant set-up by Chef and Consultant K. M. Saif.

The place is quite small compared to usual restaurants and has 2 floors for dining. The interior is minimalistic but vibrant and the well-lit ambiance makes this place elegant.

We started with mocktails and tried Dusky Damsel, Sweet, sour and spicy punch, Cucumber margarita, Kiwi margarita, Blushing caipiroska and Ethiopian spiced tea.

Dusky Damsel was a concoction of black current crush, grape juice and black salt. Salty and a little sour.

Sweet, sour and spicy punch was liked by all of us. This mix of pineapple, green chili and jalapeno gave a great spicy punch.

Cucumber margarita was muddled cucumber drink. Try only if you like cucumber and feeling adventurous.

Kiwi Margarita was made with kiwi crush blended with ice and was garnished with fresh kiwi. This was perfectly sweet and refreshing.

Blushing caipiroska is ice crushed mint and cranberry juice mixed drink will freeze you over. You can never go wrong with this.

The Ethiopian spiced tea was a hot concoction of spices like clove, cinnamon, honey boiled in tea. A perfect drink to clear to the throat or to induce internal heat on a winter morning.

The food menu brings great dishes from around the world. You get the best of uncommon varieties of different cuisines like Indian, Southeast Asian, Middle Eastern, South American, Greek, Balkan and Spanish cuisines etc.

Papas ala Saif:

This is never to be missed. Named after the chef himself, this was a dish with fried potato discs, topped with yellow pepper cheese sauce and black olives. The eggetarian variant has boiled eggs on top of the fried potato discs.

Greek veg souvlaki:
This kabab dish had soft cottage cheese and assorted vegetables accompanied by greek salad. The feta cheese and olive complemented the grilled paneer very well.

Nachos with cheese balls:

These spinach-flavored tortillas, fully loaded with cheese sauce, beans, pico de gallo, bell peppers, mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese. Will be a delight for cheese lovers.

Gallo Pinto:

From the main course, we tried a Costa Rican dish having beans and rice served with grilled cottage cheese steak, red pepper sauce, pineapple salsa and dill yogurt. This is a meal in itself.

To end the meal, we were presented a deadly duo, of highly decorated and calorie laden Chocochip cookie shake and Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Milkshake.

Chocochip cookie shake was chocolate milkshake served with ice-cream sandwiched between donuts in a glass rimmed with peanut butter and chocochip cookies.

The Peanut Butter Pretzel Milkshake shake was a blend of vanilla ice-cream, peanut butter, chocolate sauce, topped with whipped cream and garnished with a piece of a Pretzel which gave a crunchy and salty twist to the shake.

Service: N/A as this was an invite.
