Orion, Baner

Orion is the latest Molecular Kitchen in Pune. What I like about the molecular gastronomy kitchen is the science that goes into their recipes. Orion has an array of dishes apart from the usual Liquid Nitrogen dishes we usually find in molecular kitchens.

Sharabi Lassi
Now this was one surprising yet delicious cocktail I had in a really long time. Very creamy and thick due to the Bailey’s it had. Definitely worth the try.

Tamarind Margarita
This cocktail is a twist to the classic margarita cocktail with the punchy addition of tamarind to it. If you like sour flavours, give it a try.

3 Mushroom Liquid with Air Dried Mushrooms
Undoubtedly the best creamy mushroom soup I have tried. The use of air dried mushrooms gives it the perfect molecular gastranomic touch. It is perfectly balanced and worth trying.

Smoked Chicken Ravioli
I liked this one more than the Pumpkin Ravioli. The sauce was perfect and so was the smokiness.

Ambience

Abhishek, the owner of the place has stories to tell about the celestial and planetary theme which the restaurant has. The ambience is unusual but amazing. The ceiling is the best part of the place.
