A nice brunch at Level 5 Bistro and Bar

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The Kothrud area in Pune is happening and buzzing, and how :p

Usually the opening of a Starbucks outlet indicates the hipster quotient of a place and though this happened 2-3 years ago, the eateries were mostly the same. Barometer was a good “barometer” of changes to come. Pretty soon a whole bunch of other new restaurants opened up, serving craft beer as well as pork dishes – something completely unheard of in this part of Pune.

When a weekend plan for Level 5 Bistro and Bar was made last week, I wasn’t surprised, although I think was the only one who hadn’t been there previously. Given the non-stop rain hammering the city even in October, we agreed brunch was a better option than meeting up in the evening.

Get free credit score and credit report each month? And without any ads or follow-up spam calls later for credit cards or loans? May seem surprising, given the plethora of such apps or websites around, but OneScore has stuck to that promise.

The company is founded by Anurag Sinha, Rupesh Kumar and Vibhav Hathi – all ex-ICICI Bank(ers). Anurag is also a former colleague from Walnut, where he was instrumental in setting up Walnut Prime (Line of Credit for Walnut app users). He’d mentioned his new company and app name when we’d met some months ago, and some of us had checked out the OneScore app at the time.

K, Aundh – a must visit for Korean cuisine in Pune

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Fresh into the new year, and lunch plans were made for a visit to the famed Smiley House in Aundh. Unfortunately, that was closed, so we decided to try “K” – one of the few restaurants serving Korean cuisine in Pune, and oh wow, it was totally worth it. Previously, I’d only tried Korean cuisine at Cafe Maroo in Pune and Soo Ra Sang in Bangalore.

Finding the place took longer than expected, partly due to the name – “K”, as well as the exact location on Google Maps, and it’s very easy to miss while driving. We parked close by and walked around before finally spotting this blink-and-you-miss-it place. It is near Medipoint Hospital, and there are several other eateries along the same stretch of road, like L’Apicio, Andaground and more.
