Here’s an unexpected love affair : Pune’s tryst with Japanese food. The cuisine which was earlier restricted to the expatriates has found a lot of takers in the local market. The love of Sushi is being spoken of increasingly, and a casual mention of “tempuras”time and again proves that this niche cuisine does have the potential to go mainstream in the Pune market.
Japanese cuisine is not something that every chef can master. It takes a whole lot of skill, expertise and patience to practise this art of cooking. It takes years to perfect the method of cooking the fish, years before you get the right consistency of the pork belly, ages before you figure out the perfect way to cut a fish… Moreover, the ingredients used to prepare meals in this particular cuisine are not available easily. All these factors explain the need to price this cuisine a little over the average.
But Japanese cuisine is not all about Sushi as I recently discovered at Miyuki at DoubleTree by Hilton. This was by far one of the most interesting dining experiences I could remember, and there’s no way I am keeping this to myself.
There are 3 options of meals available- 3 course meal, 5 course meal and a 7 course with dessert.
So is it worth driving all the way to Chinchwad for? I can already hear those who love authentic Japanese food screaming yes. I do plan on taking my folks sometime soon. Maybe Wedding season isn’t so depressing after all :)
