Zamu's Place – Sizzlers Galore!
I discovered this place a few years back when my brother Arjya came down to pune for a couple of days and virtually forced me to take him there. Excellent decision. Sangeeta n I revisited this place a couple of days back. Here’s what happened
We started off with the bacon wrapped prawns. Yes prawns wrapped in bacon. Arguably two of my favorite meats. As I mentioned in my Facebook post when you get bacon and prawns you can’t go wrong! It was magical. Medium sized prawns wrapped with two strips of bacon each skewered with a toothpick and deep fried. Magic. 10/10
Bacon Wrapped Prawns
I also ordered the potato bacon soup. I was expecting chunks of bacon or potato but it was more of a creamy soup with a mild flavor. Under seasoned. 5/10
Next came the main course. We both ordered the special steak. And it was special. A thick slice of ham (they provide a choice of pork or chicken ham)and cheese sandwiched between two thick juicy slabs of beef. The steaks were medium rare with just a bit of pink in the center and seemed to be cooked with some mild well seasoned garlic sauce . The meat was the star of the show. The slab of ham was thick and delicious and had a generous amount of cheese. On the side were the standard veggies and fries. Condiments were limited to ketchup and a particularly tangy mustard sauce. However the steak being as juicy as it was, you really didn’t need anything else
For dessert we ordered the Jojo’s Special – honey glazed bacon with vanilla ice cream. Bacon glazed with honey and cinnamon with a blob of ice cream. Sheer beauty. Absolute sinful beauty.
This is definitely among my top 2 favorite steak/sizzler places in Pune.
