The annual Rotary Annotsav – the food festival, this time is all set to give your taste buds a good variety of tastes with the focus being in homely cooked food.
This year there are more food stalls and the entire ground is covered with a mat which is a welcome sign for the food lovers. The setup is standard with cars and auto displays and some shopping then you come across to the core the eating stalls.
Lets get on the Food directly –
On your left would be the non veg and right side would be the veg ones. Again the stalls are categorized in amateurs and professionals.
The first stalls are amateurs and then you have the professionals restaurants. Non vegetarian can have a ball of a time here with Maharashtraian cuisine, Savaji, Konkani with regular North Indian and Chinese, Thai, Italian dishes as well.
Some notable in the non veg –
Don’t miss Stall 45 SUGI where they serve only mutton which is prepared just like it is done during the harvest (malni) simple dish with a rassa and bhakri this is must have if you have mutton, you will not be disappointed with it.
stall no-5 Ratnagiri Mahila Bachat stall where u get awesome Komdi vade, a must have. Then you have the momos and then Savaji khardu and savji thali. Stall 9-11 lunch box also serves good home style cooked mutton thali with pandhra rassa and biryani. Martha mutton thali(Stall 13) is also a good bet.
Stall No.4 Kerala food court is good for a Appam.
