Burger Fest at Manchester United Cafe Bar, Pune

Some weeks ago, the Manchester United Cafe Bar in Pune had a burger festival going on, so landed up there with a friend to have a dekko. I hadn’t been there before, and it was quite hot in the afternoon, so the knowledge that this place was located in the courtyard in Amanora Mall almost had me do a rethink.  However, there’s AC seating, which was a huge relief. :-p

There was a special menu printed for this burger festival and it had several options available. We decided to go with the English Beef Burger and the American Chicken Patty (with Pork Bacon) Burger. There was also a burger platter available, with mini burgers from various nationalities, so we ordered that as well.

TJ’s Brew Works Pune – a disappointing experience

Ever since it opened it’s doors as Pune’s second microbrewery, I’d been meaning to check out TJ’s Brew Works at Amanora Town. The first microbrewery in Pune was of course, Doolally. Pretty soon, most of my friends had been to TJ’s, and my visit remained pending, so it was a pleasant surprise to discover another friend who hadn’t been there either.

It had begun to rain quite heavily by the time we got there. It was also the first time I was coming to Amanora and I have to say the way to the parking lot is quite confusing. Eventually, I just told the security guard I wanted to go to TJ’s and he directed me to the East ‘Blok’ parking. Located on the first floor, TJ’s seems well spaced out, has a pleasant ambience and a mix of indoor and outdoor seating in a relaxed and casual setting. The place was brimming with people and there was some loud retro music playing. A little ahead once you enter are the impressive looking shining steel vats.


Return to Incognito, Pune

Planned to meet up with a couple of friends for brunch a couple of weeks ago, and one of them was particularly keen to dig into a steak. We initially thought of Cafe Mocambo Grille, but on calling up, I was informed they were open only till 5pm and then closed for the next 2-3 days. We weren’t all that sure of the quality of service we’d get that day so decided to skip.

I’d mentioned earlier that another visit to Incognito Pune was called for, and so it was. We ordered Long Island Iced Tea for drinks and then for starters, began with the Bacon and Water Chestnut wraps. Gosh, they were a treat and that crispy bacon glazed with sweet chilli mayo was just melting in the mouth. This dish itself made the visit worth it.
