A classy premium décor and a good variety of North Indian, Continental and, more unusually, Latino fare are the mainstays of this place, set in a sprawling club almost on the outskirts of the city (which means you can expect some much-needed peace and quiet in the course of this meal). Start off with the likes of their fruity pasta salad or crumb-fried mushrooms stuffed with chillies and cheese, progressing perhaps to a wholesome risotto with spinach, broccoli and zucchini, or a healthy grilled fish with lemon caper sauce, veggies and mash. Alternatively, order the yummy bhuna gosht to mop up with an aromatic subsi dum biryani. If it is the Tex-Mex fare that excites you more, it starts with the toastadas and fritto misto de mer in the appetisers, or a sopa de frijol (kidney beans soup). Next, you could easily move on to the pollo en mole verdure, which is chicken in a green herb sauce served with Mexican rice or the pescado a la veracruzana of grilled, chilli-marinated prawns, served with sautéed veggies and a special mayo. To end with, do try the plátanos borrachos or drunken bananas, or cinnamon-sugar dusted churros, or crepas de cajeta with caramel toffee overtones.
Promise yourself a peaceful meal with family once in a fortnight away from the loud trappings of Pune city. Take your family or friends away from the city and give them a chance to recharge their batteries. And what better place to do exactly that than at The Corinthians which very conveniently lies just outside the city parameters. The Corinthians is home to a wonderful multi cuisine restaurant ‘Salsa’ serving sensational food to its patrons. Its lovely interiors certainly helps the matters. They have taken a regular family dining establishment and given it an extra edge. A bright cheerfully lit room welcomes you as you first enter the premises. Look is somewhere between timeless and contemporary. The furnishings are tasteful and elegant to say the least. Interesting art work graces the wall and what could have been a monotone room is uplifted by a sharp use of colour red. Salsa is interesting, edgy, modern and elegant just perfect for a lavish weekend dinner.
As we mentioned before Salsa is a multi-cuisine restaurant which indicates that the menu is wide and encompassing. That much is true. Menu of Salsa is combination of Indian, continental and European fare. Foodies can hail in joy upon the availability of sassy Latino fare. Salsa offers plenty of options to woo your palette but to do things right begin with the delicious range of appetizers. Dabble in some crispy tacos served with refried beans, fresh tomato salsa and loaded with cheese or have a ensalada de fungi which is a pickled mushroom salad. Diversify the start by indulging in bruschetta, dahi ke angare, stuffed mushroom, broccoli & roasted almond soup, lasooni jhinga, Mexican fish finger, frito misto de mer or toastadas. Salsa gives you a mouth-watering start on the menu but we were you, we would save some space for their spectacular main course.
The main section of Salsa is a promising bunch. It promises delights of flavours and forays into the territory of gastronomy in full throttle. The Italian part of the menu tempts you with risotto verdure, penne alfredo, spaghetti carbonara, thin crust pizza and lasagne siciliano. Get serious with the Mexican fare and go crazy with camarones maya, pollo en mole verdure, pescado veracruzana, enchiladas and chilli con carne. Indian section as expected is brimming with the classics. Be adventurous and finish with churros or crepas de cajeta. Dining at Salsa is a bit on the pricey side but very satisfying.
