Kurtosshhh, Bavdhan, Pune Restaurant: Decor
Kurtosshhh has a cafe-like setup and the available space has been utilized very smartly. There is an outdoor seating area which has comfortable patio chairs and tables with umbrellas. The indoor section has wooden chairs and benches adjoining the order counter and a well-lit menu wall. There is a wall dedicated to a photo collage which explains the inspiration, concept and the process of making traditional Kürtoskalács. The mezzanine floor has been designed smartly and the seating is low.
Kurtosshhh, Bavdhan, Pune Restaurant: Food
The menu at Kurtosshhh takes inspiration from Kürtoskalács, a sweet cake which originated in Hungary and is now popular throughout Europe. The traditional recipe uses dough strips wrapped around a cone-shaped rotisserie spit, roasted over charcoal and basted in melted butter until it cooks to a golden-brown colour. Keeping this traditional baking process, the menu offers a range of fusion sweet and savory fillings for the Kurtosh.
You can’t go wrong with anything which includes butter chicken. So we started with Chicken Makhani, the most popular dish on the menu. A must-have, the makhani filling was creamy with the right amount of cheese and the baked kurtosh was lightly coated with coriander and garlic seasoning. The spicy Mexican chicken kurtosh faded in comparison, but was delicious nonetheless. If you want something spicier, then we recommend the chicken kartoos kurtosh, an open kurtosh with tandoori and reshmi chicken kebabs, smothered with cheese and topped with a variety of spices and chilies. The combinations work and the result is a spicy, scrumptious dish. The savory section also has a great range of vegetarian fillings out of which the pav bhaji kurtosh served with Hungarian cheese and paneer bhurji kurtosh were the best and easily our top picks. Among the sweet fills, we recommend the Jaggery Banana (cinnamon sugar coated kurtosh filled with bananas caramelized in jaggery and vanilla ice-cream) and oreo cookie (crumb coated kurtosh filled with oreo cake and topped with oreos).
Beyond the Kurtosh, the menu offers bagel sandwiches. We tried and loved the cheesy crispy chicken sandwich. The bagel was soft and freshly baked and the cheese sauce complemented the crispy chicken filling. An accompanying salad and fries would be a great addition.
