Pune houses some of the best kept culinary secrets, which aren’t too or at all rampant in other cities and this is the USP of the foodsplorations here. While on your expedition of food trails in the city, there’ll always be a thing or two which attract not only your taste-buds but would make you delve into the history of its inception and journey.
Along similar lines, we found this one delicacy which is a ‘piece of Indian history’ from the 1940’s thriving here in Pune, straight from Durban, South Africa. Concocted by Indian immigrants in Durban during the apartheid years, Bunny Chow is a dish consisting of a hollowed-out loaf of bread filled with meat gravy or curry!
Lekker Chow is a quaint café nestled in Kharadi, that specializes in Bunny Chow with almost 20 varieties and we’re sold! A typical Bunny Chow is made of red gravy with meat or vegetables and several other seasonings and Indian herbs make up the curry of Bunny Chow.
There are actually two main varieties on their Lekker’s menu- the authentic Durban Bunny Chow and the Indianized Bunny Chow. From the Indian Bunny Chow, they’ve drawn out Indian curry flavours extending from Pindi Chole to Prawns Achari!
When here, if you’re looking for a sweet ending, opt for their Malwa Pudding and you’ll be absolutely blown, like we were!
So what we’re saying is-
Lekkar Chow is that one place where you can take bae out for a cozy date and hangout with your squad too! A real treat for folks who’re into fusion foods and we bet, this’ll be one of your best finds here in the vicinity.
