Pune Eat Outs 'coz Pune Eats Out!

पुण्याचे खाद्यप्रेम अनुभवलय ?What is PEO ?

Pune Eat Outs is Pune’s premier and most popular social food community. What started of as a journey of simply sharing food related experiences in the city, is today a thriving community of PEOple, restaurateurs, home chefs, and much more. Despite being over 1,50,000 in number we’re super active and yet we’re a closely-knit bunch of enthusiastic souls.

Bringing together food experts, restaurateurs and everyone who loves to eat - since 2005. For over 14 years we have bonded over the common love for food, not only online, but also offline through regular PEO Meets and PEOple Connects - igniting a community spirit that moves us to do more and better every time!

PEO is a family and it's PEOple make it what it is today.

What makes PEO truly unique is the genuine bond between food lovers and food creators; helping the culinary landscape of Pune evolve. As the bridge between these two sides of the same coin becomes stronger, the social currency of PEO is being measured in laughs and memories.

#PEOpleStories: Kitchen Cornucopia by Cloves Catering

PEO Exclusives Nov 3, 2020
#PEOplestories What happens when XX with Bsc Microbiology and a post graduation in Sports Nutrition, working as a Dietitian with Talwalkars meets XY, who completed his engineering, was selling computers & peripherals to corporates for years? XX was born and brought up in the coastal town of Ratnagiri, Pune became home only after graduation when the entire family moved here for good. While XY, was a Punekar all his life, met XX on a CKP youth forum. They connected on Music and ‘khadadi’ – obvious haina, #PEOplestory kaise hoti nahitoh? CKP ‘s might be Chandraseniya Kayastha Prabhu to the world but I think, what suits them the most is- ‘Chavishta/ Changale Khanare Pinaare – People who love to eat good food and enjoy a nice drink’ . That said, CKP’s are said to be the descendants of King Chandraseniya. They’ve migrated to regions of Maharashtra, Gujarat and Madhra Pradesh on the Deccan plateau and coast from Kashmir & Indus Valley, bringing with them the rich cuisine and use of ingredients which sets it apart flavourwise from the food that we can typically call Maharashtrian! Food, rather GOOD food has always been the most integral part of XX ‘s life since she was born in a CKP household wherein ‘live to eat’ is the motto! Her earliest and fondest memory of food was time spent with her Dad when they went fish shopping on the ‘Jetty’ which is an unloading dock for all big- small fishing boats and buying ‘topali bhar kolambi’ ! For XY, food has been first love, having memories of people, places & incidents all through food. Kitchen was always his happy place in the house and it still remains so! His mom was an amazing cook, they used to have family and friends lineup at their house to eat the food that she cooked. The cooking bug still kept peeping up once in a while and after marriage, they found partners in each other, for whom, spending time in the kitchen was fun! Their venture was always XY ‘s brain child or his baby and XX just adopted it and loved it like like her own. Like all good things it took time for XX-XY to settle in this business, it was difficult in the beginning as they did not have a fixed place in the market – their baby was nor a restaurant where people can walk in or take out, neither was it a catering business who catered for a thousand people & to whom people went to only during engagements/weddings/large gatherings! It was a challenge to carve that space, to make prospective customers aware that ‘pre-ordering’ is actually a thing, that food can be customised to your liking, that food can have a homely touch to it & much more; it took time but , it was absolutely worth the effort! Let me introduce XX in this story, Anuja Raje Vilekar , XY, Parikshit Vilekar and their baby, ‘Kitchen Cornucopia by Cloves Catering! When asked about their work together, Anuja explains, “Harmony is something everyone strives for in their life , we found it when we got married and we have carried it into our food as well. We have learned to co-exist in the kitchen in the sense that there are a few dishes that only I cook and a few that only Parikshit cooks and we try not to step on each other’s toes! We are always our worst critics and that has helped us to evolve and fine tune our recipes because we believe that cooking is an ongoing learning process. “Parikshit also puts in his insight on successfully running this business, “In an entrepreneur’s journey one meets many customers, many connect with you, some drift apart due to reasons best known to them but the most rewarding moments are when one of your first 10 customers calls in and tells you that the food that went from your kitchen to their dining table yesterday evening tasted exactly the way it when they’re ordered the first time 6 years ago & I can proudly state that I have my set of first 10 customers with whom we are still connected.” In an age where now we see hundreds of homechefs in Pune, Kitchen Cornucopia has been around since around 2014. They are known for their array of Biryanis including some specialities as Ratnagiri Kacche Gosht ki Biryani to Jackfruit Biryani. They have a dedicated menu to CKP cuisine which includes something as simple as ‘Ambat Varan‘ to ‘ Kadvya Vaalache Birdhe in veg and ‘ Sode Bharli Vangi‘ to ‘Chimboriche Kalvan‘ in nonveg! Absolute importance is given to sourcing their ingredients and maintaining high level of hygiene since the food coming out of their kitchen is cooked by the duo! In routine times, they host a pre-booked table of 7-8 people and its a wonderful experience in the culinary sector of the city! Right now, they are available on our very own platform, www.puneorders.in and it wouldn’t be wrong to say ‘Ye nahi khaya toh kya khaya’ since cooking food, awesomely GOOD food, is in their genes!https://puneorders.in/peo/kitchencornucopia/ #PEOpleStory by Shruti Digholkar

#PEOpleStories: Shree Mahalaxmi Misal

PEO Exclusives Oct 15, 2020
Someone has rightly said that “Every great dream begins with a dreamer” Mr Sandeep Hawaldar, a pharmacist by education is a live example of such a dreamer. With mere liking towards food and passion to serve a delicious and good quality product to the masses, he shut down his up and running #medicalstore in New Sanghvi and started a #MisalJoint named #ShriMahalaxmiMisal in the same premises back in 2009. This huge step taken by him is a great instance for the fact why people choose to pursue what they like rather than what others wish them to pursue. When asked why did he choose misal as the main dish, as Pune already has it’s own popular places, he shared his idea of having to serve authentic #KolhapuriMisal to Puneri foodie. He wanted to serve a misal that included shev chiwda which is one of the most common ingredients used in Kolhapuri misal and is served along with matki usal, kat, onion, etc. They are having two option regular and extra spicy. And you can order Misal with dahi as well! कोल्हापूर म्हणलं की आपल्या डोळ्यासमोर तीनच गोष्टी येतात!पहिली- महालक्ष्मी देवीचे मंदीर दुसरी म्हणजे तांबडा पांढरा आणि तिसरी म्हणजे अर्थातच मिसळ!तर यांच नाव महालक्ष्मी आहे आणि ख्याती मिसळ ची ! Closure of the outlet around 3 years back didn’t deter him from continuing with what he loves to do. His only wish is to serve authentic and a good quality misal to the foodies out there. With this motto, he is still operating from his house. Currently, the menu is short and they serve only Misal and a few breakfast items but their dreams are bigger! Sandeep was recently added on #PEO by a fellow foodie and he instantly fell for the content and foodies in the group. He has had his share of challenges while running the business, yet his determination and continuous support from his family kept him going. This made me realise that the world is not made up of atoms but instead is made up of stories that are worth remembering. You can find them on-https://puneorders.in/peo/mahalaxmimisal/+

हेल्मेट नंतर सगळ्यात उपयोगाची वस्तु !PEO Privilege Programme

The PEO Privilege Programme is perhaps a first-of-its-kind of an initiative from a social group. The programme manifests itself in the form of a digital app and card that aims at giving a distinguished identity and a range of exclusive dinning privileges to every member.

The programme is aimed at a close-knit ecosystem, and every facet of every benefit has been curated to get food creators and food lovers closer than ever before. It’s an annual programme starting from May 2019 and going up to April 2020.

Throughout the year, we work out some brilliant privileges at select places in and around Pune, and only for a select number of PEO Privilege Members. The privilege offers are more than simple discounts – they’re the perfect amalgamation of the best offerings and unique privileges from some of the most loved restaurants in Pune. And those that have experienced being a PEO Privilege Member in the last 4 years will vouch for the same. This year we promise you the same experience, if not an even more elevated one!
