After launching three successful brands in Pune (The Sassy Spoon, Sassy Teaspoon and Baraza Bars & Bites) The Chocolate Spoon Co. Pvt Ltd brings to Pune a brand new concept Mandarin & Mircchi located in Ishanya Mall.
This restaurant was created with the idea of offering foodies two of the most popular cuisines for dining out, Pan-Asian and Indian.
Very well designed with beautiful origami lamps and murals adorn the place.
We were invited for a preview tasting and we were thrilled to be a part of this.
An extensive menu but we could order only few as our appetite does not permit us to go over board, so after going thru the menu we decided with these few dishes which excited us on paper .
Singapore Prawns – A well thought dish, served with fresh prawns. The sauce with eggs went well with the prawns and added to the flavour. The dish had that scrambled eggs flavour.
Stuffed Bombil Fry – This dish was my personal favorite, we would just go to the restaurant to have this , Bombil fish stuffed with prawns and coconut chutney filling. It had the crunchy texture and the extraordinary flavours of Bombil was just too delicious . An absolute winner, do not miss this.
Classic Salt and Pepper Prawns – The chef kept this dish simple and tossed it in salt and pepper and served it on a bed of house vegetables. It was slightly salty according to my liking but went well with the vegetables.
Mutton Pepper Fry – Boneless strips of mutton fried in their home blend of pepper seasoning. It was tender and had the slight crunch which I like in my mutton dishes.
Mangalorean Prawns Ghee Roast- A fabulous dish made with coconut and tamarind masala. The gravy perfectly complimented the prawns. I would prefer this dish anytime over the mutton ghee roast with is normally had. Just amazing.
Gosht Galouti Kebab – Melt in the mouth dish , the was an ideal galouti dish . The flavours were spot on and when had with Rogani roti, it just enhanced the flavour. It was a stunner and a must try.
Classic dessert, Brownie with vanilla ice cream, perfectly made, no complaints, only a sinful dessert to finish your meal.
Drinks like Green Fizz ( non-alcoholic), M&M Mary ( non-alcoholic & alcoholic), Paan BanarasiWalla ( non-alcoholic & alcoholic), Berry Bunny (alcoholic), Gingerbread Man ( alcoholic ) are some must haves there .
