Kathi Rolls in Pune


OLYMPIA ON EAST STREET – THE PLACE FOR KATHI ROLLS IN PUNE

Olympia. The very mention of the word “Olympia” makes every ardent Foodie’s mouth water as it immediately brings fond memories of the unique eatery on Colaba Causeway in Mumbai which arguably serves the best Biryani in the world apart from other lip smacking non-vegetarian delights.

But, do you know there is an “Olympia” on East Street opposite Kayani Bakery in Pune which serves perhaps the best Chicken Kathi Rolls outside of Kolkata. Priced at a reasonable forty rupees it is value for money nourishment at its best. The piping hot paratha enriched with a generous and well cooked soft covering of beaten eggs and filled with substantial pieces of succulent spicy chicken – it tastes heavenly as you dip it in the accompanying pudina chutney and pop it on your tongue along with a freshly sliced onion ring. The Chicken Kathi Roll is substantial and you feel truly satiated; unlike the empty feeling you get after having other fast foods like pizzas and burgers.

Earlier this no-nonsense down-to-earth eatery was housed in a charming old-world bungalow at the same location where now stands a modern building with the new looking Olympia on a small part of the ground floor. But the ambience and food is still as before.

Next time you are in Pune Camp don’t forget to visit Olympia on East Street and relish its delicious Kathi Roll. And don’t forget to pick up some Shrewsbury biscuits from Kayani Bakery opposite on your way home.
