Located on North Main road Koregaon park just opposite Lane 3. Access to automated teller machines, (ATMs) has become free from April 1 2009 (no extra fees for using ATMs of other banks), (source Times Of India) any ATM can be used for withdrawing money even if you have ATM cards belonging to other banks. While using ATMs certain care should be taken. Look for suspicious attachments. Criminals often capture information through ATM skimming – using devices that steal magnetic strip information. At a glance, the skimmer looks just like a regular ATM slot, but it‘s an attachment that captures ATM card numbers. To spot one, the attachment slightly protrudes from the machine and may not be parallel with the inherent grooves. Sometimes, the equipment will even cut off the printed labels on the ATM. The skimmer will not obtain PIN numbers, however. To get that, fraudsters place hidden cameras facing the ATM screen. Source: Banknet

Bharat Petroleum Koregaon Park

Bharat Petroleum Petrol Pump Koregaon Park
Bharat Petroleum is located in Koregaon Park at the beginning of North Main Road. We should thank nature for this wonderful gift of Petroleum. Geologists have learned a lot about petroleum, but we still don't know in complete detail how it forms. Clearly it is derived from the remains of living things, just as coal is. But before dead organic matter becomes petroleum or coal it exists as a material called kerogen. With time in the ground, kerogen matures into an assortment of hydrocarbon molecules of all sizes and weights. The lightest (smallest) hydrocarbon molecules waft away as natural gas, and the heavier (larger) ones make up an oily liquid. Source: About.com

Mocha Coffees Koregaon Park

Mocha Coffees  Koregaon Park
Mocha (Arabic: al-Mukhā) is a port city on the Red Sea coast of Yemen. Mocha Cafe is derived from a coffee bean created in the port city of Mocha. The name Mocha in relation to chocolate is strictly as a result of European influence. Chocolate is not cultivated, nor imported into Mocha, and the advent of the coffee-chocolate mixture was done by the Europeans. The Cacao bean originally descended from Mexico. This is why the origin of the Mocha bean is actually quite controversial. Mocha is famous for being the major marketplace for coffee from the 15th century until the 17th century.

Cafe Coffee Day Koregaon Park

Café Coffee Day Koregaon Park
Located on North Main Road (Near Lane 6, Opposite lane 5 and Near German Bakery and one more near the Roshni Petrol pump ie at the intersection of Bund Garden Road and North Main Road). Looks like Koregaon Park loves Coffee. Strange as it may seem but Coffee wasn't originally consumed in the form we know it today; as a hot beverage made from boiling water. That practice began around 1000 A.D. Until that time use of the drink was largely linked to medicinal or religious purposes by the Arabs. Soon the feeling of exhilaration from the caffeine of the drink became a sought-after side effect. A popular Arab legend tells of an Arab, who experimented with brewing some coffee from raw wild coffee berries he found in his travels during his exile from Mocha. Thanks in part to the beneficial effects of the caffeine, the Arab survives his exile and upon his return to Mocha, introduced his new way of preparing the drink.

Donut King Koregaon Park

Donut King Koregaon Park
Doughnut — an edible, ring-shaped piece of dough which is deep-fried and sweetened. The Donut King chain was founded in 1981 in Sydney, and is currently managed, under license, by the Southport-based Retail Food Group Limited. A theory as to the origin of the bulls eye in the doughnut holds that a sea captain named Hanson Gregory, while manning his post one stormy night, found it impossible both to steer his vessel and to eat his fried cake. Out of sheer frustration, and probably out of hunger, he impaled his cake over one of the spokes of the ship's wheel, thereby creating a finger hold with which to grip the cake. Quite pleased with his ingenuity, Mr. Gregory ordered the galley's cook to fry the cakes in that manner henceforth.

As a world food, potatoes are second in human consumption only to rice. And as thin, salted, crisp chips, they are America's favorite snack food. Potato chips originated in New England as one man's variation on the French-fried potato, and their production was the result not of a sudden stroke of culinary invention but of a fit of pique. In the summer of 1853, Native American George Crum was employed as a chef at an elegant resort in Saratoga Springs, New York. On Moon Lake Lodge's restaurant menu were French-fried potatoes, prepared by Crum in the standard, thick-cut French style that was popularized in 1700s France and enjoyed by Thomas Jefferson as ambassador to that country. Ever since Jefferson brought the recipe to America and served French fries to guests at Monticello, the dish was popular and serious dinner fare. Source: Idea Finder
