Kata kirr is insanely popular among Punekars and more importantly it has lived up to its reputation of Best Misal Pav in Pune. Eating at Kata kirr is not a cakewalk considering the huge crowd waiting outside the outlet. Probably the only place which would have pulled masses as much as an ATM during the demonetization period. But the good part is queue management here is superb, so book a table, know the estimated time and come back accordingly.
Place is quite neat and tidy. Kata kirr doesn’t have a menu so no jazz around what to eat. Simply go for the best Misal Pav in Pune. Comes in two varieties the normal one is moderate on spice meter. The ‘Tez’ is fiery hot and not for the light-hearted. It’s an extraordinary concoction of finely cooked sprouts, sev and lots of crunchy ingredients topped with ‘Cut’ which is technically a spicy red layer of oil but practically the heart of Misal. Tear a bite of fresh and soft Pav and liberally dip into the tangy, hot ‘Cut’ and slurp the goodness. Wind up the treat with a delightful buttermilk.
So whenever around, don’t miss out on this. Katakirr is a truly legendary eatery and one of the best places to eat at when in Pune.
