Short description- in case u r in a hurry:
We had first heard about this restaurant from our foodie friend Raghu, reinforced by our foodie friend Aalok.
The boy serving us was very warm And nice.
Loved the food. Worth the 28 km one way travel to eat out here….
Detailed description- in case u hv the time to njoy reading:
We opted for a Mutton fry thali. It had mutton fry, tambara rassa, pandra rassa
Mutton fry had an excellent gravy. Thick, with lots of onions which gave it sweetness. the mutton pieces were small and good to taste but not the best – it seemed they added the meat to the curry midway instead of cooking the meat together. This led to flavours of spices not mingling with flavours of the meat. Rate it 4/5
Seeing Gavran kombda on the menu caused a load of excitement. We remembered kalim’s moonight, hotel gavran Kolhapur, grant hotel and many more places where we enjoyed this country chicken preparation. The curry that came was good but cud not match up to the high standards we had in mind. While the chicken was not poultry, it was not the usual village chicken. It was farm bred organic fed chicken. Somewhere between a bland tasteless broiler and super tasty real country chicken.
Egg curry had a fantastic flavour. It tasted really very good. The boiled egg was whitish looking and was just popped in. It did not make any difference to the curry. Rate it 4/5
Mutton Rassa was a very good thin gravy mutton dish. It had a punch and a slew of subtle flavours. While it cud not match up with hotel Nagpur, it was very good on its own. The meat pieces were very soft, intense, tasty and good. Rate it 4.25/5
Overall rating of food at purepur Kolhapur averages out to 4/5
