Aromatic and well-spiced Biryanis are always a favourite whether you ask a 5-year-old child, or an 80-year-old man.

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.

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.

Featured Review – Anonymous Cafe Bar

Any place that is called ‘Cafe’ & ‘Bar’ has already won, right? Anonymous made us think of ‘V’, from V for Vendetta (must watch if you haven’t), but the resident blogger digresses. Where were we? Ahhh… Pune, Pune the city of a million dreams and a thousand smiles, and hundreds of outstanding places to eat out at.

Anonymous Cafe Bar has a large rooftop space in the Cerebrum building of Kalyani Nagar. It is split into a cozy enclosure and a larger alfresco with a part higher seating on one end and a stage on the other end.The rooftop bar out in the open has a very boho-chic feel. You can eat, drink and dance in the open, which is liberating! The ambience overlooking the city from the 8th floor is perfect – whether for a summertime dinner or an afternoon brunch in the shade. I mean, come on, look at this version of Nachos with Cheese Sauce.

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! If I were you, I’d go and spend some money on drinks to get Zephop points, and then I’d order the Paneer Tikka Starter, stick to a good ol’ non-veg Kabsa rice, and totally dig in to the Blueberry Cheesecake for my dessert. Correct me if I’m wrong, but that is the way to redeem those Zephop points. Thank me later!

Featured Review – Pancharatna

Great location, wonderful ambience, yummy food – Pancharatna strikes three to give customers a delightful experience. We recently got them on board to partner with Zephop, which means that now, you can dine on some fabulous Mughlai, Chinese, or Thai and use those Zephop points to redeem free rewards.

We thought we’d give you some pointers to help you get started and maybe tempt you, just a lil’ bit. For instance, both the Mongolian Paneer and Chinese Green in Garlic Sauce are excellent vegetarian dishes. To pay homage to those of us who love our meats, why not go for the Murgh Nawabi Kabab or the Gosht Sheikh Kabab? You know you want to! If you’re feeling a bit Italian, try the Alfredo Sauce with the veggies or the Chicken Arabiata, you’ll not be disappointed.

One of their starters comes especially the Shredded Chicken in Burnt Chilly Sauce. It looks yummy with its half burnt red chillies & the red sauce in which the chicken is tossed. It packs a punch, try it. Thank us later! Their bar menu is quite extensive and word has it that the selection of snacks they serve with drinks is always appreciated.

Whether you go here for lunch or dinner, you’ll notice the really great service. The staff here are really into their customer focus, and that comes across clearly. The Pancharatna team tries hard and does it well – heir customer delight gig, and that is what keeps their customers coming back time and again.

Featured Review – Uba Tuba

We hope everyone had a fantastic Holi & Easter. This week we feature Uba Tuba, in Bandra West, boys and girls! While researching Uba Tuba, the resident blogger at Zephop started reading up on Mexican cuisine. As you do. Did you know that, in 2010, traditional Mexican cuisine was inscribed on the Representative List of the ‘Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity’ by UNESCO? Honest!

Uba-Tuba

‘Traditional Mexican cuisine is a comprehensive cultural model comprising farming, ritual practices, age-old skills, culinary techniques and ancestral community customs and manners’. So when we get the craving for that kick of salsa or that warm feeling from a good enchilada, we are paying tribute to one of the oldest farming and culinary communities of the world. And as we know, they took all that time and got it oh-so-right!

Head to Bandra West to grab some Mexican at one of Zephop’s newest friends! Whether you have a soft spot for tacos or fajitas, quesadillas or good ol’ burritos, Uba Tuba has got an extensive menu to engage their customers and leave them delighted… and stuffed. Almost all of their offerings can be customised – more salsa less cream or more spicy… you get the drift. We enjoy places that allow us to do that, getting a word in to have that perfect meal is essential. Word has it that if you ask the staff to whip up something just for you, they will! I’ve sold it now, haven’t I?

Use your Zephop points to redeem rewards when you visit. We want to pick what to recommend, but whatever we’ve tried has been yum. So now that you’re back from your holidays and regular life has taken over full swing, why not treat yourself and your friends to a special night out? Or a night in, these guys deliver within 45 mins and you can get your Zephop points when you say ‘Zephop’ when you order! Tell us what you ordered, and what you thought… cheers, folks!

Featured Review – Spice Kitchen

Hello from us here at Zephop! Here we will explore why we partner with the businesses we do. We’ll talk about the most exciting deals and special events and offers that will excite you. Today we are talking about Spice Kitchen.

Spice Kitchen was one of our first onboarded businesses. They were very keen to partner with us to engage with their customer better and to increase their offering based on need and desire.

We love how budget-friendly this place is! Two people can comfortably dine for ₹500 to ₹700. And where else these days can you have a Murg Kullar Biriyani for ₹270 only!? Super love. Located in Chembur’s cool hangout spot, the ambience is great to go with the yum dishes.

Free rewards that can be redeemed for Zephop points include a whole range of delicious snacks, drinks, main courses, and even combos. You can get deals for as little as 500 points and if you wanted to save up for a special treat, we do like the idea of ‘Tandoori Bharwan Aloo’ or ‘Aagri Chicken Handi’. Hmmm, this is making me very hungry!

You can book a table here for free and catch sports live on their LCD screens. The menu includes Indian and Chinese dishes, but don’t think that’s limiting, because really, the strength here is the Biriyanis!

We hope this has sold Spice Kitchen to you. If you decide to choose this place for your next meal, tell us about it? Oh, and don’t forget to sign up to Zephop to get those deals. Until next time, cheers!
