What’s New on Zephop – November 2016

This month, the resident blogger thought, is a great month for reflection. Not only is it that time of the year when the year itself is folding in, but it is also the month when Zephop turns 1.

new

And while something that we created has come along way and has taken on a life and an identity of its own, it has come with its fair share of challenges, as all great things do. As I think harder and harder about what it is about a startup culture that is most scary, the answer is very obvious – ‘change’.

At Zephop, we have done change really well. We have changed our founding team, people have come and gone, yes, but along with that we have changed plans, tactics, strategy, behaviours, and pace. We are 1 year old and a 100+ businesses strong because a bunch of people who had never worked together before came together and decided to match the pace of life with our own changes. That is what made us shine.

Most of the things we did, we had not planned for. But it was the strength of our core proposition and our collective belief that ‘this is IT’ that heped us galvanise when the troops were required. So when you are thinking of 2017, think of how much changed for the world this year, and prepare to deal with change on a personal level better.

This may have become a very reflective post, muses Resident Blogger, but hey, if you have got some Zephop points burning a hole in your virtual wallets, it is a great time of year to indulge in some cafe culture. So check out our Discover page!

Featured Review – WTF What’s the Flavour

We’ve not featured a place for a while, so it was high time to start talking about a great new place in Nerul called WTF, who have decided to take customer engagement to the next level by partnering with us here at Zephop. WTF opened in January this year and has already become a hotspot in the area. Here’s why…

The location is great as they are located in close proximity to a lot of colleges – those in SIES or DY Patil will know what we’re on about. The ambience is lively and the vibe is great, especially with the quirky art deco wall. It serves as a backdrop to what we think will be great conversations. It is a great place to either go for a quick bite at lunch hour but at the same time it has enough choice on the menu to host a nice dinner as well. WTF is very pocket friendly and the quality of food as well the portion sizes are great. So when it is your turn to pick up the tab, you might want to take your friends here and maybe redeem some of those Zephop points that are burning a hole in your virtual pocket!

They do a lot of great cold drinks and milkshakes as well, and you can redeem some Zephop points on a scrumptious milkshake or iced tea. WTF are well known for their flavour packed burgers and you must also try the Chicken Sandwich (Grilled Cheese/Mayo). These get consistently good reviews. Sides are to die for, take a look at their chilli cheese fries for instance.

Everything that WTF is doing, we have thoroughly enjoyed. They are invested and excited about being a part of the Zephop story. So when you go there, try out some of our recommendations, redeem some rewards, show them some love, and don’t forget to have a fabulous time! Till next time, eat well!

What’s New on Zephop – August 2016

Here at Zephop, we can’t quite decide whether we love the rains or not. Well, we do love the pitter-patter of raindrops and curling up with a cozy cuppa and design some Zephop collateral. But we’re not enjoying the trek about towns when it’s pouring heaven’s insides! New things continue to happen at Zephop, and for August, it’s Pune places.

new on zephop

121 Kitchen BarBQ – This place ticks all the boxes for us – from having an open air area to a great menu for home delivery. Discover the best of both local Pune favourites as well as Oriental choices in a laid back and relaxed ambience. Buffet is served in the open area at the back, and the options are delectable.

Anonymous Cafe Bar – The food at Anonymous is delicious, the service is known to be prompt, and the ambience is terrific. All ingredients for a visit spent well!

Brownie Point – We were getting in itch in our sweet teeth, collectively. So we onboarded a confectionery/bakery. Yum!

Cafe Rettro – Pune’s cool new hangout spot. They have a great selection of food and drinks on offer. Great ambience, good food, fab service – what’s not to love, we say?!

Red Dot – Sea food and Mughlai lovers to head here please. Time to try out some of those fabulous starters and main courses and redeem some Zephop points.

The Cartel – Quick bites and long nights will be your highlights of this visit. Head over here to grab a pitcher of their finest draught and pair with some delectable snacks.

Victoria 3 – Whether you want a light bite or the full works, you will be amazed at the variety of choices on offer. The food is excellent, try the Murg Jungli. And the service is great.

Featured Review – Cafe Istaa

There’s a famous saying that “Big things come in small packages.” This is especially true for our latest business-on-board, Cafe Istaa. A small place that packs a punch, with great food, great service, and an awesome ambience. This is a business that cares about the likes and wants of its customers and so, have partnered with us here at Zephop to bring the best rewards to customers.

The cafe has a relaxing, calm and quiet atmosphere. It is perfect to go to in a big group with your friends for a catch up during your summer break. There’s seating both indoors as well as outdoors, for those breezy evenings, that you can spend relaxing on the artificial green carpet. With the fountain thrown in for good measure, it is perfection.

istaa

Why not try the Paneer Tikka Sandwich or the Mumbai Grilled Sandwich? We hear that their Cheesy Fries are epic too – buttery , crispy, cheesy and full of perfect flavours and herbs. And then use your Zephop points to redeem against some delicious rewards, like Nachos with Salsa or a Margherita pizza. The palette of taste and colours are delicately balanced, we love the chef!

A delightful little addition is their baked goodies cabinet. Full of yummy things to die for – this has a selection of snacks – pastries, puffs, cakes, which are regularly updated. Located just opposite SIES college, it is an ideal hangout spot to get to.

Everything that Cafe Istaa is doing, we have thoroughly enjoyed. They are invested and excited about being a part of the Zephop story, so when you go there, try out some of our recommendations, redeem some rewards, show them some love, and don’t forget to have a fabulous time!

What’s New on Zephop – May 2016

Temperatures are soaring! It is May, after all. It is getting too hot to handle here at Zephop as well. The Zephop team has been joined by our first intern on our Business Development Internship, the first of many bright jazzy individuals who are pumped about being a part of Zephop’s growth story. As always, here’s a sneak peek into our Discover page.

new on zephop-2

 

Arabian Chillies – Apart from the fairly usual Chinese and Mughlai cuisines, these people have on their menu Lebanese! There is some joy in a fulfilling shawarma and some cracking hummus on the side, we say.

Cafe Istaa – This is from Zephop to our veggie friends. With temperatures soaring higher, why not indulge in the simplicity of a vegetarian fare by redeeming some Zephop points for some fabulous starters and main courses.

Cake Cellar – Oh, another bakery, which means more sugar cravings laid to rest. More cupcakes, cookies, and yum baked products – this one-woman new in town show has it all covered! We are working closely with them to get the best rewards up soon.

Centre Point (Jersey9 & Exotica) – Want to watch the sport of the night being screened? But maybe have a quieter spot with friends after? Centre Point packs a two-in-one combo, so why not head here when you can’t quite make up your mind? Great ambience, good food, fab service – what’s not to love, we say?!

Lemongrass – We loved the Chinese options on offer. The food is excellent, and it is one of those places where you do not need to think long and hard about what you want. The menu does what it says on the tin, good comfort food!

Pancharatna – This place has been around for a while, but a recent revamp means that it is now superbly done up and is an excellent choice for eating out with friends and family alike. Whether you are after a solid biryani or just some yummy noodles, this is home! For a more detailed review, watch out for our Featured Post.

Urban Tapri – Small and packs a punch. This place has managed to get the home cooked taste at perfection! To get some Zephop points and feast on a huge and ingenious selection, take a look on our Discover page to Connect with them!

Zenzibu Orientals – What does one do before you head to watch an IMAX movie? Eat some Chinese, of course! If you’re at the movies at Wadala, this should be your go-to place. Try their crispy honey chicken, or the chicken satay.

Zaika – We like to think of this as the post-early dinner cravings place! Great veggie food, like their paneer pulao, to go with some yum gravies make for a super meal at Zaika.
