After taking the city on an East Asian culinary journey with Sushi, Baos, Dimsums, Shizusan, Pune’s first ‘Asian Pop Bistro’ is set to launch its first-ever satay festival.
The menu is inspired from Shizusan’s recent travels, and is meant to lead guests on a culinary journey through his memories and culinary innovations. Each of the 10 special satays is a product of the personality of the country it is inspired from as well. The Taichan –minced chicken cooked in hot & spicy sambar Oelek– is inspired by the energy and edginess of Malaysia. Similarly from Philipines, the indulgent Fillipino Beef Barbikyu – Pan seared tenderloin coated with Filipino sweet & sour BBQ sauce – will transport you to the bustling streets of Manlia. From the land of the rising sun, Shizusan’s brings to you The Lamb Yakitori – a specialty lamb satay flame grilled in Yakitori sauce.
If you’re a vegetarian, they’ve sorted you on that front too! The fresh Koren Spiced Cottage Cheese – Grilled in kimchi sauce – one bite of this will instantly want you to play some K-pop and shake a leg. The Tofu Kaprow from Thailand is a delicate preparation of tofu chunks carefully arranged on a lemongrass stick. Shizusan’s love from the ‘off the beaten path’ inspires the Japanese Goheimochi Rice Cake – pounded sticky rice cooked in unagi peanut sauce – held together on a skewer.
If variety is your style, try the Satay Je – a sweet & spicy assorted veg satay.
