I love cooking and me and family prefer healthy food cooked at home. We go out on special occasion and this time it was occasion of our marriage anniversary. Last week we visited Sigree (D.P road Pune) after a gap of three years and were again delighted by their service and food.
According to me a good restaurant is one where customers would want to visit again and again, and I can safely say Sigree is one of my choicest restaurant in Pune.
It was a weekday lunch buffet and on reaching we came to know they are having coastal festival going on. Being a vegetarian I had doubts what would coastal festival have for us.
However, I was purely delighted by their malabari grill potato, goan roasted mushroom, grill paneer shaslik and some lip-smacking grilled pineapples. Since I’m big lover of grill food, enjoyed their starters.
You should try this moong dal tikki if you are fan of some healthy and crispy starters.
Since the starters were spicy, the staff promptly took notice and arranged some non-spicy starters for my kiddo. At times even a small gesture like this makes your day.
I was almost full by starters and subz dum handi just had enough space left for tasting main course. Main course had variety of regular spreads like paneer pepper fry, aloo gobi matar sabzi, and khatti dal.
But I felt salads could have been more creative. However, raw papaya pickle caught my attention. It’s something I’m going to try soon at home and will definitely share the recipe once I make it. 🙂
If you like instant pickles do try this instant and easy to make mix vegetable pickle.
There was also mulligatawny soup and it was worth trying it. I actually called chef and asked its recipe and he was kind enough to share it with me.
Having said that, desserts were on weaker side. It had rice kheer, pineapple pastry, malpua, strawberry mousse along with melons as fresh fruits and vanilla and strawberry ice-cream.
Too simple in this age of innovative desserts. Also when you are charging Rs 580 per person more is expected. Dessert is something people usually taste at the last and it has to be too good to keep your restaurant in persons memory. Since I’m not someone with sweet-tooth, it was OK with me. However, its one thing that they can work upon.
They are having this coastal festival till this year end (2016). On the whole it deserves your visit and it’s worth trying.
