Sunday Brunner at JW Marriott.

Sunday Brunner is a unique concept,  farm to table.

Farm-to-table is a concept which refers to the stages of production of food starting from harvesting to consumption. It is associated with sustainable and community supported agriculture and attempts to educate the customers about the link between farmers, farm communities and the food we eat. In the last few years, farm-to-table maneuver has grown rapidly all over the world. 

JW Marriott, Pune has brought this concept to Pune first,  in fact it was launched last year and it was a great success.

This year they have only managed to make it grander and bigger.

Hourly improvisation with beverages, interactive & live food  stations rule the afternoon . Live cocktail carts, astounding bartending take it up a notch.

The immensely talented Chef Mayur Tiwari and his marvelous team have not let Pune down this year.

The Pbc walkway is a beautiful place to spend a Sunday afternoon with your friends and family over this amazing Brunner.

Paasha, Jw Marriott.

Jw Marriott,  Pune is a second home for Food-Adda since we are there almost every week either for a review,  dinner or a night out with friends.

So last week we were invited for a new menu tasting at Paasha,  a magnificent restaurant in Jw Marriott.  Situated on the 24th  floor with an amazing view of Pune.

Bloggers,  Media people were part of this evening,  we were introduced to the chef Mayur, Trilochan Singh and the crew.

Bhatti ka Murgh started the evening,  soft,  succulent and delicious.


Tandoori malai phool was the best in the vegetarian dishes.


Gucchi sabz ke shammi was a specialty dish of Chef Mayur.


Kakori kebab was a winner all the way,  soft, melt in your mouth lamb seekh kebabs.


Paneer lababdar.


Dal paasha, an overnight cooked dish,  is a signature Paasha dish.


What stood out for me was Zaffarani Mutton Biryani,  juicy, tender pieces of Mutton cooked with rich flavors in Basmati rice… Heaven.


Dessert was Kulfi faluda.

Toss Sports Lounge

Toss Sports Lounge is one of the most interesting concept lounge in Pune,  it is very well decorated with cricket memorabilia collected over the years by its owner Zaheer Khan and his brother ,  spacious and very comfortable to spend an evening over cricket,  sports and food.




Most interesting is a huge cricket ball right in the middle of the ceiling.


The food here is not neglected over Cricket as its much better than most lounges in Pune.

This is not a food review but we were invited on a monsoon evening for a party to celebrate the end of monsoons.

These kind of parties are fun as you can just sit, relax and enjoy.

Attended by bloggers,  media personals,  celebrities and Pune’s known people it was fun as most of the people know each other, so conversations rule the night over delicious finger food, salads and my favourite Chocolate Brownies.

Thanks to the Khans for this special evening.

Special thanks to Carpe Diem team,  Shivangi,  Carina and Minoti for managing and executing the evening so wonderfully.

New Menu At Alto Vino

We were invited to JW Marriott in Pune for a new Menu tasting in their signature restaurant Alto Vino.


Spearheaded by Chef Huber Christian,  it’s a fine place to sample Italian finest gourmet in Pune.

We started with  Beetroot Carpaccio with herbs,  a freshly prepared salad.


Goat cheese croquettes with mushrooms was another winner ,  freshly made, infused with flavours and a delight to eat.


Pumpkin ravioli with Parmesan cheese was just about nice, guess it was too much of cheese.


Highlight of the evening is the signature dish,  the lamb shanks, tender meat falling from the bone, melt in the mouth, a must have on your visit there.


Desserts like tiramisu and chocolate fondue  ended the night on a very high note. Never disappoints.

Frisco ………

A bloggers meet was organized at Frisco,  one of the new entrants in the ever-growing line of restaurants in Pune. Frisco is a quaint little cafe/ all day dining place in a by Lane in Koregaon Park.


We started with potato and leek soup with green wok salad,  freshly prepared and wonderful.


Starters like Thai sweet chili baby potatoes and Frisco nachos stood out  for the vegetarian fare.


Sicilian garlic chicken was infused with flavours , but  the dish that worked for me was Fish and Chips. Loved this one.


Verdure and Cornish chicken pizzas were excellent  followed by Mac &  cheese pasta.



One of the highlights was poached sea bass, this is a must have for the freshness, sauces and flavours, by this time we were so full that we could not do any justice to the last dish potato lentigiane.


Desserts are my favorites,  the blueberry cheese cake and brownie with ice cream.


Ps ask the chef for the ice cream soda,  a huge glass filled with goodness arrives.


Would I go back,  definitely.

Should you go,  definitely.
