Fusion food: affordable international food
Pune has now become a hub for a multitude of cultures with foreign food, which comes as no surprise to regular restaurant diners. Eating out has become the norm and not eating out, but that’s not all. Today, Pune boasts super cool international cuisines that are served not only in la-di-dah Michelin-starred restaurants and bars throughout the city, but also in inns that dot the landscape from Koregaon Park to Kondwa.
Pune has arrived!
International cuisine is not limited to Chinese food with an Indian twist. From the predictable to the exotic, these inns have either run out of street cafes at La Paris or have popped up in dense neighborhoods and corners, streets, and complexes abound everywhere. Thus, Marathi Manoos can dress to kill and eat in style at the many exorbitant fine dining houses or eat at reasonably priced, freshly baked inns served throughout the city. No luxurious interiors. There are no fancy spreads and there might be no atmosphere, but the food is delicious and completely affordable for any budget – school-going kids, college teens, struggling housewife, and whatever.
