Must Do

Unique food joints  

If you are a foodie, you will have a great time in Pune. The city now boasts cuisines from all across the world, but what still stand out are the Udupi and Irani restaurants. Vaishali and Roopali, Udupi restaurants that serve south Indian fast food, haven't seen their menus amended for nearly six decades now. Among the Irani restaurants, stop in at Cafe Good Luck at Deccan Gymkhana. When you go to these restaurants, you'll find that they have been venues for daily hangouts of friends for well over 50 years or so. You should also try the Puneri misal, a spicy Maharashtrian snack, at Bedekar, Shree Upahar Griha, Shree Krishna or Katakir, which are always packed with people. Hrishikesh Kanitkar
