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.

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.

Dinner at Flying Duck Pune

Reading Time: 3 minutes

First visit to the much spoken about Flying Duck Pune and it was a good one. Had been hearing about this eatery for quite a while now, thanks to photos and reviews all over social media so a visit was in order.

We made plans to visit on a Tuesday, only to realise they’re closed that day, and eventually went on a Thursday. It’s a small joint with 6 tables and a seating capacity of around 24 but one thing is for sure – whether weekday or weekend, better make a reservation to avoid any disappointment if you just land up there hoping to get a table.
