Restaurant Review - Cafe 1730
Cafe 1730 is one of the few places in Pune which offers all day dining along with a well stocked bar. Tucked in a serene lane of Koregaon Park in a building aptly named Serene Bay, their multi-cuisine menu offers Continental, Indian, Tandoor, and Goan food along with a extensive fare of seafood. They also have an impressive All Day Breakfast menu loaded with omelettes, waffles, pancakes, wraps and much more.
I went there the other day with my girlfriends and we had a great time chatting over good food and drinks.

Okay, now getting to my favorite part - the food! As you guys may have known by now, I am a HUGE foodie and I love doing food reviews! I even have a profile on Zomato which is a great food discovery website.
We started our meal with Buffalo Wings. These succulent chicken wings were marinated in chilly flakes, cider vinegar and honey and then roasted, giving them a deliciously sweet and spicy flavor. They were served with creamy blue cheese dip and we devoured them in no time. We managed to be ladylike and eat our wings with a fork but deep inside, we were all dying to dig our claws into them and eat them like zombies :)
Next up we had the Prawn Rissois - a unique appetizer made of chopped prawns cooked with shallots, green pepper and cheese stuffed in roux pastry and crumb fried. These were nice and crispy on the outside and soft creamy inside. Savory and flavorful, the blend of prawns and cheese was very interesting and tasty.
Moving on to the main course, the four of us ordered very unique dishes, each delicious in its own way.
The first dish we got was the Mix Meat Lasagne which was a medley of meats and cold cuts sauteed together, cooked with concussey sauce and layered between sheets of pasta topped with creamy béchamel sauce, Parmesan and mozzarella cheese gratinated and served. Wow, what more can I say? Loaded with meat, pasta and cheese, this creamy dish was absolutely heavenly and all of us loved it.

Next up was Grilled Fish, a huge portion of fish generously sprinkled with a tangy lemon and pepper sauce, grilled to perfection and served with a fresh and flavorful serving of veggies. Totally healthy and totally delicious!
Being a carnivore and a huge lover of Pork, I was delighted to find it on the menu as not too many places in Pune serve it. Thus, the third dish on our list was Pork Chops with Pepper Sauce. This was a huge portion of Grilled pork chops marinated to perfection in a spicy pepper sauce, served with mashed potatoes and veggies. This is exactly how I like my Pork Chops!
Last on our list were the Mushroom and Corn Crepes, the only vegetarian dish in our entire meal, but it was delicious nevertheless. It consisted of buttered mushrooms and American corn sauteed in a creamy sauce and wrapped into soft and delicious crepes. These very nice and creamy and the corn added a sweet and enjoyable taste to them.
