Eat Like A Bawa At These Parsi Restaurants In Pune.

avirat posted on 19 March

It's a universal fact that there’s no hospitality like the Parsis. And, there’s nothing that satiates our taste buds like a delicious plate of dhansak, salli boti, patrani macchi and Parsi poru. To save you the trouble, we’ve found the best of Parsi restaurants in Pune. And, for Navroz, which is on March 21 along with Holi, you can score a Parsi bhonu, which is a Parsi version of a banana leaf meal.

The Bawa

Right from the moment you enter into the adorable bungalow from where The Bawa operates, you are immediately transported into a traditional Parsi house. Living up to Parsis' love for eggs, The Bawa offers a number of egg dishes like akuri eggs, baruchi eggs, lela lasan ma edu, Parsi poru and more. However, it doesn’t stop here. You can also sample traditional dishes like patrani macchi, dhansak, mutton salli boti and the classic berry pulao.

For Navroz, they are hosting a Lagan Nu Bhonu buffet and there'll be ample delicacies to try. You can't miss some meaty Parsi food.

Rustom Battliwala

Flavoured sodas, traditional Parsi snacks and classic brun-maska. Eating at Rustom Battliwala gives the vibes of sitting in an age-old Parsi eatery in Bombay. There are those warnings on it’s walls too: no talking, no lingering, no spitting and so on. We recommend washing down a heavy Parsi meal with their refreshing Irani chai, which is a must-try.

Dorabjee’s And Sons

A legendary restaurant of Pune that hosts a number of Bollywood celebs, Dorabjee’s and sons is in the heart of every Punekar. Their famous chicken and mutton biryani are second to none in the whole city and are a must-have here. Even if the ambiance is very humble, the taste here is what makes us go back over and over. 

For Navroze, dig into the mutton or chicken pulav dal, chicken farcha, salli boti, salli murghi, lagan nu custard, patra ni machchi.
