The Flying Saucer Sky Bar, Pune

26 Jun

Monday I was invited for a tasting at the Flying Saucer Sky Bar in Pune. This is a relatively new rooftop bar which has opened up in Vimannagar. The view from the top is breathtakingly stunning, one would want to spend the entire night there with the beautiful breeze and the city lights around. It being monsoons, the roof was covered but I was told that in other seasons it is open to the sky, lounging under the stars – I sure would love that!

I joined a couple of other bloggers and we were first served their cocktails. I opted for their classic long island iced tea which was well made (not overly sweet) but very potent. The host there also made some signature peachy cocktail with elderflower flavour which was very refreshing too. Along with the cocktails we had the vegetarian and non-vegetarian platters. Of the non-vegetarian platters, I really like the kalimiri tikkas and also the shaami kebab was well spiced although a tad dry. On the vegetarian platter, the dahi ke kebab was interesting but a little sour for my liking. Also, there was a spinach roll which was an elaborate starter. The rest of the tikkas seemed a little dry.

Next came the BBQ chicken wings which would have made a decent accompaniment to beer. The salt and pepper prawns were a bit too salty, although the prawns were a good size and cooked right. For main course we had chicken chettinad a spicy chicken dish with assorted indian breads. The pindi chhole were too spicy for me so I couldnt sample it too much. The dal makhani needed a little seasoning and was reasonably good after that. The desserts had nice tarts and doughnuts. Overall, a beautiful ambience to hang out with friends and have a relaxed evening. The food had its hits and misses but it was a good attempt! The menu is vast and will leave spoilt for choice. A special mention for their choice of music- very good!
