Any person living in Pune must be aware of Manas Resort, it was one of the first resorts in Pune which was a complete family destination and a full house on the weekends , over the years a steady decline for reasons not known to me made it an almost forgotten place but when my friend and his partners decided to revamp the place and reclaim its former glory, i decided to check it out with my partner in crime and fellow Food-Adda mates.
The place retains its beauty and the lake in your sight make it a pleasant evening for dinner and conversations.
The food served is authentic and fresh, specially i recommend the Mutton Sukka which is made in a Maharashtrian Style. I managed to have quite a bit of that.
It could be more beautiful in the day as the nature surrounding it is amazing but the night too was mesmerizing for us.
A must visit just for the food, Nature , lake and fresh air comes as a bonus.

Palm Shack is in Koregaon Park, Pune. This place was earlier owned by a close friend and we were frequent visitors to it. Then the management changed and Kookie, the current owner is looking after this place now. He too is a good friend, so we The Food-Adda guys decided to check it out again last week. We were six of us and we decided to go in the evening.
The ambiance is like a trendy shack which could be anywhere in the world but i would prefer it to be Goa.
The food is good and freshly made and the Non Veg selection makes a better choice than the Veg.
I would not like to write a long post explaining the finer details of each and every dish but it is a must visit if you are in Koregaon Park, its in the lane 6. You won’t be disappointed.
Since then we have visited it again a couple of times and will be visiting it again soon.
Food-Adda members paid for the bill.

What Happens when 10 hungry people just go to eat food at its best, no frills no fancies only authentic Kolhapuri Food.
They usually order more than they can eat and then they parcel it and eat it the next day too. That is what we did.
Home cooked food served piping hot and fresh, was a delight and we Food-Adda members enjoyed it to the hilt.
Address Hotel Gavran Kolhapur.
Near Ganga Constella, Kharadi, Pune.

When we came across a restaurant named The Attic, we were wondering if its one more restaurant in the ever-growing community of restaurants in Pune but one fine day when we passed it on the way, the facade was as beautiful and inviting as the interiors which is visible from the road.
Food-Adda was immediately interested in this beautiful restaurant and decided to try out The Attic for the food and the ambiance.
So When we reached Attic finally we were not surprised to see a well designed , airy restaurant with a warm and homely ambiance. The huge wooden framework and glass around had a feel of openness which is rare in a place like Pune.
In Attendance were Noted Bloggers and Socialites of Pune which comprises the team of Food-Adda.
The food compliments the concept.Light and Easy perfect for any day and the service up to the mark.
