Greek and Mediterranean Food with #PuneFoodiez | Euriska | A Review
This month, the #PuneFoodiez got together for another meetup hosted by Euriska India. Last month was Brooklyn Shuffle.
Euriska is a Greek & Mediterranean food oasis. It is the answer to all things Greek & much more. The restaurant is done up keeping in mind the food & the ethnicity of that place.
The decor is blue & white, the seating is open with comfortable lounge areas thrown in. The interior captures the Greek culture with wind mill, slatted wooden chairs & tables, cushions. I was so tempted to kick my heels off & sit cross-legged.
They have a large section dedicated to live music and played some foot tapping music for us. The lounge section, Island Bar & exotic dining area is just a beginning of the experience.
Since it was a lunch on Sunday, the weather was pleasantly warm and perfect to enjoy outside seating.
When all the foodiez joined, the chaos, laughter, camaraderie reached a new level.
The staff was courteous, the food out of this world.
I had the most amazing cocktails at Euriska, all rum based. My go-to poison is rum and I declare Euriska to serve the best cocktails in town.
Executive Chef Ajay Thakur surpassed all our expectations and went all out to put together the most exotic dishes possible. For vegetarians like me, he served us Olive Puffs which are big sized olives wrapped in phyllo sheets & baked, Dolmades & Herbed Cheese which is wine leaves stuffed with vegetables & rice.
Main course included Zucchini & Eggplant Rulatini with spinach butter sauce & chilly asparagus. For non-vegetarians, I don’t even know where to start, from octopus salad, lamb, shrimps – a food lovers delight!
The dessert included Baklava & Duet of Crème Brulee & Tiramisu. Baklava was out of this world and the Tiramisu was relished by my 20 month old daughter.
The chef served us 22 dishes! WOW!!
The afternoon was very enjoyable, banter, good food and awesome ambiance makes Sunday a Fun-day!
PuneFoodiez has been growing by leaps & bounds and we are looking to take it forward in a big way!
