Mexican BBQ at Olive Bistro

The season has changed, and Pune is now wet and cold. It’s beautiful, a perfect timing for something hot and sizzling. A gorgeous restaurant like Olive Bistro in Poona Club has something for this lovely weather. The colorful spread of skewered marinated tenderloin, chicken and seafood spread on the counter where the hot grills are fumed with the cloud of delicious smoke. The vibrant bean salad, warm couscous, Mexican rice and a beautiful array of sides sat on the side. My foodie gang Pune Foodiez and I were invited for this cozy Mexican BBQ.

I loved Prawn with Mexican Salsa Skewers. The jumbo tiger prawns were seasoned and grilled to perfection.

Grilled Balsamic Tenderloin Skewers were soft and succulent. It was my favorite dish of the night.

I also enjoyed Norwegian Salmon & Lemon Skewered between pineapple and bell peppers. The fresh and sweet flavor of pineapple gave a beautiful compliment to the gorgeous salmon. It was served the zingy fresh salsa.

Grilled Honey Chipotle Chicken Skewers was tender, juicy and glazed with vibrant flavor of smoked chili and honey.

Cilantro Chili Braised Lamb Chops were decadent. The meat was just melting and falling-off-the-bone soft. Though I found the lamb to be a little over-seasoned, the combination of herbs and spice in this dish was just wonderful.

Beer Can Chicken was divine. The chicken was packed with aroma and flavor, and roasted to perfection with golden brown crisp skin and succulent meat on the inside.

For dessert, we had the all time favorite Tiramisu. It was creamy and delightful. The OB Crème Brulee was mellow, smooth and lovely. The thin layer of sugar crystal on top was lovely.

I was in love with Hot Chocolate Fondant at first bite. The lava of chocolate was luscious, pampering for the palate.

To go with this scrumptious Mexican BBQ, a rainbow of delicious cocktails and mocktails are served. I loved this delicious Kiwi Margarita without alcohol.

I always have a lovely time at Olive Bisto. The place is gorgeous, and the food is beautifully plated and tasted heavenly. Mexican BBQ also added a beautiful warmth and aroma to the restaurant. It’s perfect for the weather right now.
