Restaurant Review - Lord Of The Drinks Pune

Lord Of The Drinks is a Delhi based resto-lounge which opened up in Kalyani Nagar, Pune a couple of months ago. I recently dined there so here's my review of the place. Just like their other outlets in Delhi and Mumbai, the Pune LOTD also boasts of an ambiance that takes you to a medieval era with it's classy wooden interiors and elegant lighting and chandeliers. Besides the closed indoor section, you can take the curved stairwell that leads to the open air terrace level which has more of a casual vibe and offers  multi-level seating and bar of course! 

After looking at the extensive menu which offers soups, salads, starters, dimsums, tandoori tapas, square meals, pizzas, pasta, burgers, sandwiches (which they call samiches), bento boxes, full square meals and desserts, I think they should be called Lord Of Food and Drinks! Since it is a Delhi based chain, there is a lot of North Indian influence in the menu along with fusion dishes which are inspired by global and Indian cuisines. The bar menu has a wide range of unique and interesting cocktails along with the usual bar favorites like beers, IMFLs, scotches, single malts and select wines. 

I started with the Asian Cooler which was a refreshing blend of white rum, cucumber juice, basil leaves, lime juice, syrup, bitters and rose water. This was delicious and absolutely perfect to beat the  heat. 


My friend tried the Harry Potter inspired Butter beer which consisted of vanilla vodka, beer, tennessee honey, whiskey, caramel syrup, egg white and apple juice. The coolest part was the bubbling froth which actually made the drink quite interesting to look at besides it's taste! All the Potterheads out there should try this out! 


And now for the food, we started off with the Kalonji Mutton kebabs which were a lot like seekh kebabs but were different in color. 


We also had the Malabar style char grilled prawns which had a coconut cream type marinade and was absolutely heavenly. 


For those you love Bengali Mustard fish, make sure you try their version of this tikka which has sole fish marinated in coriander and mustard. 


Another interesting dish we tried were the Butter Chicken Croquettes which consisted of crispy crumbed butter chicken but this one was a tad disappointing as the butter chicken lacked the same taste as what we get in the north so I don't recommend this dish.  


I washed these down with the Cucumber Sour - an interesting variation of a whiskey sour which has rum, gin, lime juice, cucumber syrup, egg white and thyme. I loved this one too as it was really refreshing and unique. I'm not a fan of sweet stuff so this was perfect for me. 


Moving on to the main heroes of the meal, we first ordered the Bhori Keema Pav which was just pefect and the way authentic keema pav should be. We nailed it in no time. I totally recommend you to try it out. 


We also had Pepper Pistachio Mutton Korma with Malabar Parota. This rich gravy was really flavorful and the star of my meal. I am definitely going back for this.  Absolute favorite!


Last but not the least we tried the Bull Fire made of vodka, rum, gin, tequila, blue curacao, red bull, passion fruit, red wine! This was a potent LIIT and was served in a majestic manner too. 


Overall, we had a great time at Lord of the Drinks and were horribly stuffed with all that yum food! Give this place a try!

15 Things To Do Before You Turn 30


Invest in your body
Your metabolism and skin will treat you right in your 20s but to maintain yourself make sure you watch your weight, eat right and use good skincare and hair products. You'll be grateful for it in your old age.

Learn to cook
Needless to say, food is necessary for survival and it always helps to know how to whip up a good meal for yourself or your loved ones. Cooking is a very useful skill because not only does it let you choose what's going into your body, it also gives you a way to save money rather than eating out or ordering in.

Start a side hustle
The best way to eventually become your own boss is to start a side hustle and build your self-employed income while you still have the safety and security of your day job.

Start saving
This is a good time for financial planning so set up a fixed or recurring deposit account, buy term insurance so that you have your own corpus to fall back upon when you're older. Money in the bank = confidence + independence

Read 
Knowledge is power. Need I say more?

Be selective about your company
Choose wisely with whom you spend your time.

Live by yourself
Not with roommates. Not with your parents. Not with your significant other. Go solo for a year or so and get to know who you are when no one else is around.

Travel to the unknown
Go somewhere really exotic that you’ve always dreamed of visiting. 

Fall in love with nature 

Get rid of your bad habits
Whether it's smoking or biting your nails, this is a good time to make an effort to get rid of your bad habits so that you don't carry them forward to the rest of your life.

Treat yourself 
Splurge on something expensive, that you've always desired.

Eat expensive food
Treat yourself! Try fancy foods from some real fancy restaurants! As they say, you are what you eat.

Take advantage of every weekend
Make sure to do something every weekend, whether it’s taking a new class, or having dinner with your friends, make sure to go out and do it!

Take an impulsive weekend away with your bestie
Get away and soak up some sun last minute and maybe get some cocktails in!

Do something crazy
Whether it's getting your tongue pierced or go skydiving, this is the time to go crazy and create fun and unforgettable experiences that you will cherish for the rest of your life!

Black/White - The safest bet with every outfit would be to team it with black or white sneakers and as you can see, they pair pretty well with dresses too!


 Go Color - Sneakers in bright and fun colors are a great way to add a pop of color to a more monochrome look. And they go especially well with denim outfits as you can see below!


Metallic - Metallic kicks are having a major moment and provide high-shine style to any outfit without looking like you're attending a cocktail party! These metallic shoes take the women’s sneakers game on the next level, combining fashion with comfort. Whether you like gold or silver or pink, metallic sneakers are perfect too add subtle bling to your outfit!


Color Block - Color blocked or “Rainbow” sneakers are going to be all the rage this Spring Summer. Whether it's red, purple or neon, this trend has been appearing in a lot of collections for upcoming seasons


Wedge - Ever since Isabel Marant introduced these over 5 years ago, they've had a special place in my heart. With numerous brands replicating this style and celebrities embracing it, there's no doubt that the most controversial sneaker out there is undeniably stylish. And when it comes to short girls like me, these are the only sneakers I would happily wear my entire life. (I still have the pair I bought in 2014 and totally love them!)
