New Dining Options - Part I

Sarson Ka Saag at Punjab GrillJiggs Kalra's Punjab Grill opened in Pune.  And boy, has that improved the quality of North Indian dining in town!  Having been here three times already, I can say with confidence that this is now clearly the high-bar in Pune for North Indian kababs and curries.

The Murgh Tikkas at this restaurant are completely extraordinary. Wonderfully marinated and grilled, these simple kababs showcase the expertise of master-chef Jiggs Kalra.

Pesto Pesto

Pesto Pesto in PuneAmong the many Italian restaurants now in the city, I think Pesto Pesto is among the best when it comes to reproducing the authentic tastes of Italy.  Located on the top floor of Onyx Towers in Koregaon Park, window-side seating at this restaurant makes for a romantic dinner experience.  But if you want to sample a larger variety of items, you may want to be there for the weekend lunch buffet.

Eating the World in Singapore

Turkish breadHaving tasted Malay, Chinese and Japanese food during the preceding days, I turned to Turkish and German for the remaining day!  Completely different cuisines from different parts of the world but prepared and served by immigrants from those countries in Singapore.  While both Turkish and German cuisine is dominated by breads and meat, they are - of course - completely different.
