Time­less tuck-in


India Today - - COVER STORY -

Their chicken and chut­ney sand­wiches have fed gen­er­a­tions of Puneites. Housed in a 100-yearold struc­ture, it’s all about the old world charm and the af­ford­able, de­li­cious food that keeps Marzo-Rin on the eat­ing-out list of Puneites, es­pe­cially stu­dents on a tight budget.

The four decade old restau­rant on MG Road has evolved with the times, adding whole wheat prod­ucts, bakes, burg­ers, puffs, desserts and juices to its menu. How­ever, car­bon­ated drinks and fried foods are off-lim­its here. Here, the staff doesn’t en­cour­age you to lounge around; and once you down the last sip of the fa­mous Rose Milk, they hurry you out to make way for the next set of cus­tomers. Walk up the century-old wooden stair­case that takes you to a bal­cony with tall stained glass arches and grab a quick snack to get a whiff of Pune of the yesteryears. Aver­age meal for two Rs 300 At Bak­thiar Plaza, 6, M.G Road Tel 26130774
