EATING OUT IN PUNE - A Foodie's Day Out


EATING OUT IN PUNE
A Foodie's Day Out
By
VIKRAM KARVE

BREAKFAST

Misal at Damodar Bhuvan now renamed Damodar P 30 Bibwewadi ( Rs. 35/- including three slices of Pav)

I am sure you are wondering what P 30 stands for. 

I was clueless too, so I asked the owner. 

Well, P stands for PUNE and 30 Stands for the Postal PIN Code, so P 30 is Pune 30 which is the postal code for Sadashiv Peth

The owner claims that his Misal is typical Sadashiv Pethi Misal. 

Well, I really don’t know if it really Sadashiv Pethi, for when I was a small boy, I relished Misal at two places in Sadashiv Peth – Ramnath and Santosh Bhuvan – both on Tilak Road, and of course the famous Bedekar Misal. Damodar Misal is certainly different, and in my opinion, this is the best Misal in Pune.

BRUNCH

Chicken Momo, Corn Cutlet, Chaat, Veg Burger and Cold Coffee at Adarsh Canteen University of Pune Campus.

My daughter’s favourite place to hang out in the University Campus. This is an ideal place for easy-on-the-pocket leisurely snacking.

LUNCH

Veg Thali at Chandrakanta near Chaturshringi off Senapati Bapat Road

A real tasty sumptuous value-for-money “unlimited” meal. A Sukha Bhaji, a Rassa Bhaji, Dal, Curds, Papad, Salad, Chutney, Chapatties and Pulav. 

EVENING QUICK BITE

Yummy Lamington and Soothing Soy Milk at Spicer College Bakery on Aundh Road.

LATE EVENING SNACKS

The plate of the best Bhel in Pune (and arguably the best Bhel in the world), a Crisp Masala Dosa and a Satiating Onion Utthapa, some yummy chaat and Dahi Wada at Kalyan Bhel on Bibwewadi Kondhwa Road. 

DESSERT

Well, after this delicious foodie day, I really had no appetite left for dinner, so I ended the day with my favourite Dahi Ice Cream at Gujar Mastani House near City Pride Multiplex on Satara Road. 

And then, with the spicy sweet and sour heavenly flavour of Dahi Ice Cream lingering on my tongue, I headed home to my place in Bibwewadi.

(In between all this eating, I was busy travelling around Pune on some important work)
