Rest : Purepur Kolhapuri
Meal : late late dinner
Loc : somewhere in Vile Parle
It was late and i was returning from a long days work. My friend / (slash) was looking for a dining companion, since he had mentioned this place before, i thought why not check it out. Although the other option was Mexican or Mezze...
Kolhapuri cuisine is usually fairly fiery, red chilly and pepper based. You order a Kolhapuri dish in a restaurant its usually among the fiery ones. So i was a little worried about how the dishes would be. They werent that bad... (in terms of spice)
The food unfortunaely was not upto the mark. I am a big fan of Maharashtrian snacks but i have always found the cuisine wanting when it comes to full scale dining.
There was a dal a few veggies and roti and rice. The normal thali setup but none of it stood out particularly.
The dahi was tangy with a sourish taste, which i like, however i had the chaas which was made with the same yoghurt possibly and was not so good. The peanuts and gur were fun !
Overall, i was not impressed with anything really. Maybe its being run as a restaurant and needs more of the communal lunch home feel to succeed as an ethnic cuisine powerhouse.
Additionally, they have a lot of meat, chicken and sea food options and i reckon this is their mainstay. The vegetarian possibly not their strong point and hence the weakness.
