Toss lounge Menu Tasting

Zaheer Khans Toss lounge invited me to try their new Menu and was I glad and privileged to have accepted the invitation. 
Toss located in the heart of Nibm, Pune is a good option to visit and spend some quality time over some good games / matches, sipping on chilled drinks and relishing the mouth watering food. A high standard sports lounge especially for the young at heart who believe to include some fun and play in life. 

The theme being enjoying and coming together for sporting events like cricket , IPL, Wimbledon, NBA etc. plans to open another brand new Toss lounge at K.P. are in the pipeline 

The food tasting event was organized for a few selected foodies across Pune and was a pre launch for their new menu. 
We were presented with a vast 9 course meal which included 26 dishes and variety of cocktails and spirits. It was a meal fit for a king truly. 

Let me take you on a journey of my favorites from the brand new menu of Toss.

1st course included a vast variety of starters and I had my winners

Bomb shelled pikers 


I strongly recommend them with some beers. 

Jalapeño poppers stuffed with cheese, they were juicy and the cheese melted in the mouth. A perfect balance of spice, cheese and a tinge of sour served along with remoulded sauce.

Green Rifle White Pond
A tasty and a good way of eating one's beans. 
Green beans marinated with balsamic and crum fried served with Parmesan mayo. 
Goodness of beans with the comfort of fried food and mayo. wow !!!
Must for veggies and others alike.
Muscled up Hen wings

An innovative take on wings which were really tasty and make for a superb starter.
Strongly recommended 
Wings stuffed with wild rice and mac n cheese. Served with cucumber salad and black pepper brandy dip and the favorite carrots and celery. Give me wings any day. Drinks, wings, a game and the evening is set. 

2nd course Bruschetta

Their Bruschettas were an instant hit right from the word go. 

Pumpkin Patch

Portabella mushroom, jalapeno, onion, cheese sauce, pumpkin, walnut, feta cheese
Innovative and tasty, they were served on corn tortillas.. I found it a marriage between Bruschettas and tortillas resulting in an innovative Nachos.
I think this was the best way of having pumpkins. A flavorful, wholesome taste in each bite.
Strongly recommended.

West Milan Bread Topper (for the non veg lovers) 
This was served on a ciabata bread. The combination of garlic chicken, peppers, onion, tomatoes and mozzarella cheese with T sauce was heavenly.

3rd course salads 

The salads were wholesome, juicy made with fresh ingredients and a good choice for the health conscious. 

4th course made up of Burgers
Worth a mention and the one for non veg lovers amongst all the burgers served was 
Double. Decked meat Polly.

Lamb patty, chicken patty, coleslaw, cheddar, pepper, onion, lettuce, tomato, jalapeño, mayo, mustard, in a big bun with some crisp fries
What can go wrong with such an wholesome combination. One giant burger.
P.S. The wedges and fries served with the burgers were perfectly crispy and thick. 

5th course consisted a range of Gourmet Sandwiches guaranteed to woo the sandwich lover.

6th course Pizzas 
My favorite amongst all the pizzas served was 
Meatball Fire Pizza 
Huge chicken meat balls seated on top of a juicy pizza made of tomato, thyme, garlic, onion, basil, Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses, oregano. It was perfect. The combination of different kinds of cheese couple with huge meat balls and a traditional Italian ingredients lent a distinct taste to the entire pizza. 

7th course had to be Pastas.
And the good old Lasagne was a hands down winner amongst all the pastas served.
Lasagna Alforno

Chicken bolognese layered on lasagna sheet with bechamel, tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese baked to perfection.
Truly comforting and cheesy

8th course Main course 
Nut crusted Lamb chops
The chops are encrusted with cashews and honey mustard served with lamb jujus, spinach sautéed and mashed potato.
Lamb flavoured with the cashews was different and delectable, the Honey mustard lent a nice sweet spicy taste to the entire dish. 
Desserts made up the 9th course 
Brandy brown Vanilla melt.
Sizzling chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream flamed with brandy and topped with chocolate sauce made for a perfect sweet dish.
The brandy added a lovely powerful flavour to the entire dish a bit of bitter which went extremely well with the chocolate. The brownie was moist and full of nuts. 
Strongly recommended 

With this my gastronomical journey came to an end
Perfect end to a royal feast indeed. 

Cherry on top - A lovely goody bag from Toss.
A afternoon truly well spent relishing some really good food. 

P.S.- these are strictly my views on the food served, I have led stress and suggested only those dishes which truly satisfied my taste buds. The service is good and polite. The interiors of Toss lounge is very comfortable and relaxed guaranteed to give you a laid back fun time with a treat for your taste buds as well.
Toss lounge has introduced these innovative dishes to their existing Menu. With more perfection and a better creative presentation for the food, which they promise, I am looking forward to visiting them again especially their K.P. branch.

Toss lounge is a perfect place to unwind after work over drinks or to catch up with friends and your favorite team on the weekend. This place surely wont let you down. A perfect casual sporty hangout.
