Waffling Around, Aundh. Pune 


The other day I went out for a late night snack/dessert. 

Didn’t want the regular icecreams & shakes, so decided to try ‘Wafflin Around’ at Aundh (opp Croma)

A nice cute little place, which was later invaded by a group of people who had a competition with their unruly kids, over who could be the loudest & most obnoxious of the lot. (Not the restaurant’s fault at all, but all that ruckus, along with the music in the restaurant, kinda ruined my idea of having a nice dessert, on a quiet rainy night before going home & sleeping peacefully) 

Anyway, coming back to the Waffles. This place serves waffle sandwiches, basically half waffle stuffed with filling of your choice, & folded over like a sandwich. 

I tried the Strawberry-Cream waffle which my friend ordered. A mixture of whipped cream & strawberry crush topped with coloured confetti sprinkles. A bit too sweet for my liking. 

My ‘Salted Caramel’ waffle turned out better, with the balance of cream & salted caramel, which didn’t have a tooth ache inducing sweetness. 

However the actual Waffle, needs a bit of change. It was crisp on the outside, as it should be, but sadly it wasn’t at all light n airy inside. The waffle felt too dense and under done inside. 

Will I give it another try ? Yes. 

They have just 2 savoury options, but I’d like to try the Cheese filled waffle sometime.

‘Bubble Bee’ – Aundh, Pune 

​So…all those instagram pics & posts, all that hype Everywhere on social media dragged me to this place, ‘Bubble Bee’ at Aundh.
My experience in one word..? ” Meh ”
I really didn’t understand what all the hype was about. It’s just (below) average waffle with (below) average toppings and hardly any choice.

They were serving only 2 types of waffle base (atleast that evening when I visited) – Chocolate & Red Velvet.

I chose Red Velvet… so was obviously looking for Cream Cheese to go with it.

But all they have is Whipped Cream and Coffee Cream.
And top it off with either ferrerorocher , kitkat or fruits .
So I had an underwhelming combination of Red Velvet (?) Waffle with whipped cream and 1 Ferrero Rocher cut in half, which basically does NOTHING to enhance the falvour.

Had it been crumbled on top, or mixed with the cream, there would have been a textural and flavour twist to the otherwise boring whipped cream.

At roughly 150….170/- something, for that waffle, I have better options in town.
As for the bubbletea , I’ve had toooo much of it while in southeastasia … and this one does not match up at all !

So if you go there expecting that taste and quality, then I’m afraid it’s going to be disappointing.
Tried the Green Apple flavour with Passion Fruit flavoured Pearls. (Juicy ‘Boba’….not the chewy starchy tapioca pearls I was looking for)
At 120/- for a small glass of overly sweet (premix) drink, it was some more disappointment for the evening.

The flavoured tapiocapearls , are not even close to the real slightly ‘chewy’ pearls you would expect in a bubbletea.

These are like juicy, liquid filled globules (boba) that instantly burst in your mouth.
They do have a ‘jelly’ variation instead of the boba pearls, but will I go there again just to try that out ? ummm… I doubt.
Ohh btw… Waffles and Bubbletea are the only 2 things served at Bubble Bee.
