Coco – Sushi & Bar opened its doors to Pune sometime back with a unique concept , only members or friends of members can be a part of this dining experience. Black inspired interiors give it a classy look . Panoramic views of the city can be experienced along with fine dining.
We were invited for a tasting and we did not leave disappointed .
Beijing Duck Thong Soup – Clear soup almost like a consomme with succulent pieces of duck. The soup was soothing and we could not stop sipping on it.
Spicy Squid Salad – The dish did taste better than it sounds. Sautéed squids in a spicy sauce went perfectly well with the crunchy salad. The salad was seasoned just right so the squids flavour would not empower it.
Ebi Sushi Roll – The art of sushi making was mastered by Coco. The prawns were outstanding and the sushi had intense flavour. The dish was a straight away winner.
Chicken Shitaki Dimsums – Firm dimsums with a thin wrapper with perfectly flavoured chicken and shitaki. The mixture just made my day. The dips given just complimented the dimsums but did not overpower it.
Lemon Grass Fish Cakes – Not a fan of fish cakes but these were not oily and had a good flavour , lemon grass added a mild flavour leaving the true essence of fish cake.
Chicken Wrapped In Banana Leaf – The dish reminded me the day I had a simple dish in the beautiful state of Kerala. Simple flavoured chicken wrapped in a banana leaf which added flavour and left the simplicity of the dish intact .
Wasabi Ice Cream – A mild flavour of wasabi gave a unique taste to this ice cream .
Smoked Dark Chocolate Mousse Cake – I think I really don’t need to write about this one . It was a dream come true for a chocolate lover. The chocolate with the combination of mousse cake just took me on the trip to Charlie and his chocolate factory. My personal favorite and a perfect end to a perfect meal.
