Fancy gorging on Maharashtrian delicacies while sitting in a wada (a traditional Maharashtrian mansion)? We found a place in Baner where you can have this authentic dining experience. Wada Culture, a new eatery in town is making a buzz with its authentic cuisine and traditional decor.
We Found A Wada-Style Eatery That Serves Gavran Thalis
What Makes It Awesome?
The authentic flavours of the food are commendable. They have veg as well as non-veg thalis. We recommend you try either of these. Each thali will have a special starter called maaswadi, which is Maharashtrian delicacy made of gram flour, veggies and meat.
While the non-veg thali will contain the chef's signature mutton/chicken rassa, the vegetarian fare will have usal, bharle vange gravy, spicy varan and bhakri. We love the rice options they have- the first one is a ghee laden biryani basmati bhat while other is a sticky flavoured rice called Indrayani. If you have a sweet tooth, dig into the yummy rice phirni, gajar halwa or gulab jamuns.
As for the decor, the exteriors of the place are designed just like a traditional wada. While the interiors have a regular furniture for sitting, the place will soon have an outdoor seating arrangement where you can enjoy food under the sky.
What Could Be Better?
For the ultimate wada dining experience, they should have a provision of a sit-down meal on chaurang (a small table) and include desserts like shrikhand and puran poli in their menu.
Not in a mood to eat a thali? Worry not, they also have an a-la-carte menu from where you can order Maharashtrian as well as North Indian dishes. Their non-veg starters like Bombil and surmai fry are a must-try.
