BBQ is Fun. BBQ is Love. BBQ is trending for real in Pune.
Many new outlets are coming up with their own BBQ serving and concepts. Though dishes are same but they have some unique twist to it.
Recently I visited Universal BBQ in Hinjewadi phase 1. I was invited for food tasting at the restaurant.
The entrance was so welcoming. As soon as we entered the restaurant had very festive and positive vibes. Everything was well set in the restaurant from table, chair, decoration, etc.
Every table had staff wandering around so that no customer was ignored and had empty plate.
It had food as a typical BBQ place would have. Some delicious grills, special live counters, dessert corner, buffet, etc.
For starters we really loved their Chana garlic fry where Chana and few garlic were deep fried until crispy and served with onion.
On the other hand, the twisted version of Cajun spiced potato which they had as Balai k aloo was altogether at the different level. It had the sauce made out of sweetened curd and seasoned to perfection.
Last but not the least, chatpate kebab were just outstanding. A definite must try. Mashed potato with corn and other ingredients seasoned until sour.
In non-veg; the chicken pahadi was tad salty but they replaced it with the fresh one. Mutton kebab were juicy and tasted so good.
Chaat section is not to be missed at this place.
The grills had varied options in veg and non-veg. Chicken, prawns, fish, mushrooms, honey chilli pineapple, honey paprika pineapple, etc.
Coming to dessert they were not up to the mark with cakes and pastries but had very good Indian sweets like jalebi, gulab jamun, etc.
Overall, I would say it was a very good experience with Universal BBQ.
Thank you swapnil shinde for inviting and team universal BBQ for hosting us.
